As an experiment regarding licensing of 3d designs, I offered my 3d printed NERF to GoPro mount on ebay while the design can still be freely copied and printed for personal use by anyone. (CC-BY-NC-SA)
I just don’t allow to sell it or advertise with it.

…sold for barely 2eur.

Will try again with something more complex but it doesn’t look good.

I think the amount of people who own GoPros are just kind of limited. You’re crossing two very niche things. I’m sure other 3D printed things would sell better.

Here’s a gear heart that sold for $20: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rotating-Gear-Heart-Model-Pla-Plastic-Makerbot-3d-Printed-Blue-Red-/160948940509?pt=Model_Kit_US&hash=item25794deedd

And a set of Nautilus gears for $8: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nautilus-gears-printed-on-a-3d-printer-/121050186418?pt=Educational_Toys_US&hash=item1c2f2742b2

And…apparently iPhone cases: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Slipknot-Iphone-4-4s-3D-Printed-Case-/321020134121?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item4abe4a82e9 – 10 of these suckers sold…

Yeah, I just don’t see a GoPro Nerf gun mount being something that’s really searched for much on eBay. Thing is, I’d say your market for a product like that is likely very similar to the market for people who own 3D printers. :\
