The quality of the printing is usually the best way to tell. Replicas, especially ones made in Asia, are usually cheap looking.
The one I have has all of the trademark logos on the bottom including that of Marvel, Columbia, and a Copyright disclaimer. They are very crisp in clarity except for the Columbia logo which seems to be a little "faded." (Probably, from printing such a small detailed logo.) But couldn't there be replicas with the logos on them?

I actually got this one off of Ebay from here in the states. I keep trying to contact the guy to follow up about its origins but he never emails or phones back. I've seen a Spider-Man 2 banner and if you're wondering how the quality between these two compare, the quality of the Spider-Man 2 banner seems to be better. I'm not saying that the Spider-Man WTC is horrible in quality. On the contrary, it's amazing but there is a noticable difference (when looking up close,) but that's just my opinion.

Other details: This SM WTC banner hangs using a wooden rod. There are no metal grommets. The print is uniform except for the "3 May 2002" which appears to be done in a high glossy print, distinct from the rest of the banner. On the back of the banner, the vinyl is gray (no print.)
