What an ass.  Everyone who reports this stuff, please report this one.  It's a blatant attempt at covering his illegal tracks.


just sent him a msg:

hi there. you do know that you are breaching the copyright selling these items as ebooks dont you. just thought i would give you fair warning as you will no doubt be reported to ebay and wizards of the coast (who own the copyright on them). regards, Alan

no doubt i will get a short "feck off" kind of reply, but it was worth the effort to see if he will see reason.

well i got a reply:

They are hand typed word documents not books or ebooks and include all the content for the forementioned second edition books - just trying to share this information.

my reply to him:

your auction states that they are ebooks. either way, whether you hand-type them or not, its still breach of copyright if you duplicate the information from the original material. go look at the copyright notices in the original books. i AM trying to help you here btw. Alan

oh well i did try. he's gonna be one of them who is utterly convinced that he is doing absolutely nothing wrong.

I reported them both.  Maybe if we all just barrage them with reports every time a bootlegger puts something up we can keep them off of Ebay.

Bclarkie posted this over on laughable item descriptions:

Anyone in the UK feel like gambling:

http://cgi.ebay.com/DUNGEONS-AND-DRAGON ... W0QQitemZ2 90016099745QQihZ019QQcategoryZ44114QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem


i had a feeling what it was as i have seen him before, so i hit the BIN to see what happened. before reading on, read the listing above.

i then got a msg through ebay within about 2 mins of hitting the BIN:

This message was sent after the listing closed.

if you do not wont it as you didnt ask befor u bid it ok i will still leave
poss feed back thanks


so i replied to him:

hi gary

ah right so we get to the bottom of it.

so they are not books after all. well in your auction, you clearly advertise
books and not CDs/DVDs or PDF files. these are illegal breach of copyright
items and you cannot sell them on ebay, which is why they keep getting taken
off ebay.

you have also lied about not having a list available either.

basically, all told, your listing was a complete scam and isnt even selling
what you said it was.

i refuse to pay for this. you can take it up with ebay if you wish and i
will point them in the right direction with regards to law.

sorry you wasnt selling what it was that you were meant to.

Alan

ps. i have your e-mail now which makes it very clear what it is that you are
selling.

to which i then got this:

hi well thay are not copys thay where given away as price's at trip to
london Dungeons but ebay do not understand this?hay its ok i will leave poss
feed bk for you u dont have to pay m8 thanks


so there ya go peeps, another ebayer to add to the shady seller list.

and um nope i wont be paying :)

Al
