PressTine Baseball Trading Cards

I have been gifted these Presstine packs before, so I know what to expect, a lot of late 80's early 90 cards. Interestingly stated on the front of the pack-
"The genuine trading cards have been legally purchased and repackaged for sale by Presstine Marketing Inc."
A legal requirement? Are card collectors that litigious?

Here are the four packs purchased from a dollar store somewhere in New Hampshire. There are 20 cards per pack.
