Seems that illegal pdf champion, the state of Pennsylvania, has now officially been dethroned by the United Kingdom:

And a totally seperate seller:

Both posted within an hour of each other. Anyone......

Crikey!!

I haven't worked there for more than 25 years, and even I am indignant and outraged that bloodsuckers and leeches can operate like this.

WTH don't the Wizard boys squash these buggers? It isn't like they don't have the cash...

Not worth the effort.  They make far more money cranking out set after set of crappy plastic minis than they ever would pursuing legal battles...  :roll:

Good news for followers of this thread: eBay appears set to roll out a "Report This Item" feature:

April 2006

At least this will save some time when reporting an item, although it doesn't do anything to address eBay's often-mystifying item-removal policies. The entire process needed some streamlining, though, and this sounds like a good first step.

That's excellent news.  The old procedure was rather cumbersome and took slow-witted folk like me a while to find.   :D

Yeah, I just reported him as well.  There are any number of publishers besides WotC who actually might care that he is doing this.

Deadlord - The same jerk that you clicked the heck out of last night just reposted all his stuff.

BTB is correct.  He's pdf'ing the Dummies book too.  Anyone know someone at Wiley publishing?  I just sent a note to copyright.com to find out if they can work with Ebay to track these idiots down.  I am not overly hopeful of a response, but hey.... I have to try.  :wink:

I have spent countless hours searching the internet for D&D material, now all my hard work can be yours by winning this auction.

I have 14 pages of links that add up to a TON of useful material available, and more gets added all the time. It will take you months to look at it all! I have used a lot of this info during my campaigns and they have added SO much to our adventures. My players have LOVED the new stuff! It is important to note that the info that comes along with the book is only links to where you can download them for FREE, not the actual info. For example: you would open the word file quickly look for the of information you want and then click on a link that will take you over the internet to where you would then download the material to your computer FREE. It is VERY, VERY easy to use and well organized. Anyone able to understand how to play Dungeons and Dragons would have no trouble using the links pages.







Many of my buyers have told me they think the bonus info was worth more than what they have paid for the book alone!



This links page is free for the winner of the auction ONLY IF THE FINAL  SELLING PRICE IS $15 OR MORE FOR THE BOOK. IF YOU USE "BUY IT NOW" YOU WILL GET THE LINKS AND A SET OF GAME DICE WITH THE BOOK!!!


May Eru's light shine upon you always.

Actually, I would probably be willing to pay $5 for the list of clickable internet links, so long as it was all legal.  The time saved would be worth it.

Searching for links on one's own is a learning experience.  One learns how to better use Google and how to better qualify searches.

A pre-generated list of D&D links is someone else's choice of what qualifies as Dungeons and Dragons.  A list focusing on 3e would include the shedload of free downloads from WoTC's site and d20 publishers.  It might include the old archives of Internet textfiles and who knows what else.

Giving someone money to perform a specific search with guaranteed quality of results is different from giving someone money for a list of unknown quality.

Unless they have radically changed the copyright laws since I was publishing, (I'm 99.9998% sure they haven't) selling PDFs is no different than selling a set of photocopies. It is stealing someone else's intellectual property, like bootlegging CDs or DVDs.

The law is quite clear; third parties may not profit from reproducing other persons' intellectual property without express permission.

We used to seize those copy sets at every con we went to; if the people griped or bitched about it, we told them to try and sue us. NO ONE ever did...
