Intergalictic bookshop has several sets of fanzines for sale on eBay, for quite some time now. I think they're not selling because his asking price is too high.

Apart from that, nothing can be said about the contents. The quality of the stories and art in these fanzines ranges from the great to the poor.
I own a few dozens of fanzines but stopped, or never really got into, collecting them because they are so numerous and varying in quality.

And compete nonsense it is.

If it would be true I would be violating copyright everytime I sold a book that is written not by myself...

The crux is in the things they sell themselves, to members. That is original stuff. If they have permission for that, it is alright and they need not be anxious for cases like these or, and that could be likely too, if a (former) member would decide to sell his or her stuff.

I honestly feel this answer was more written with the idea of "please don't pay attention to us, we are doing nothing wrong, let us be" behind it.

They do seem to be putting as much distance as possible between them and the seller.
