I know this might seem like a stupid question, but i had to ask it. Now bitdefender has really good virus signatures right? Comodo IS has a really good sandbox and firewall. Comodo gives us an option to import virus signatures. So i was wondering whether there is anyway to download the bitdefender signatures and import them into comodo?

I would ask how Comodo would be able to read BD's signature files. Every company has their own format of signatures files to go with their engines - not to mention that the signature files are not available outside products from BitDefender and vendors that use the BD engine.

Surely BD would not be sharing their engine technology with companies they do not have an agreement with?

As an example of what Sintharius is referring to.

Emsisoft Anti-Malware uses two scanning engines, combining its technology with Bitdefender...using their anti-virus engine (on-demand file detection) including file-based signatures in their threat database as well as heuristics.
