just an update on the above matter, i got this reply from the chap:

Hi,
Thanks for reporting me to ebay. I was going to remove the listing, but i have only just logged on and did not have the time to do so, as it had already been taken off. I notice that you sell D&D stuff and this has probably influenced your decision, but another 10 mins was all that i required to remove the listing. Time is money though isnt it?
Cheers.
Kes.



to which i replied with:

hi there. just so that you know, i did not report you and i am happier to see that you took it down yourself. yes i do sell RPG stuff. if you were selling the same, i would have no problem whatsoever. for what its worth, please go and have a look at a forum The Acaeum . this is a collectors forum relating to D&D stuff and you will see a section relating to copyright infringement. there are ppl who look for others breaching copyright. as you were from the uk, i sent you a msg rather than taking the matter further to try and see if it could be dealt with in a lesser manner. if you wish to sell original material, please go for it! by the way, my ID on the forum is the same as my ebay ID. sorry if you feel that this has been an exercise against you. not at all. just the fact that you cannot sell PDFs of original material. kind regards, Alan

i think its a shame that ppl think its a personal attack on them, simply because i sell things too and not for the fact that its because they are breaching copyright.

well i have invited the chap here, so maybe he will come post, who knows.

Now I am getting confused (not unusual with American laws, etc.!).

Is the law saying that, if I buy two copies of, say, a mint-condition Q1 Queen of the Demonweb Pits, then turn around and sell one on EBay, that is illegal??  Or would it be true if, instead of Q1, it was two copes of the legendary ST1 Up the Garden Path---or the R1-R4 series, or the original white copies of the original (early 1970's) books?

For that matter, would it be illegal to split up one of the 25th-Anniversary Collector's edition boxes into multiple individual sales (as has been done in several eBay auctions)?

There is nothing illegal about splitting up or selling original material - the stuff that TSR actually sold.  The illegal part is that some people are making photocopies or electronic copies and selling this material which is illegal.

In the case of something rare like ST1 which holds a high monetary value, I think there is a more severe criminal offence that could be applied.

Heck, I wouldn't mind if I could buy the photograph--or a copy of it--and frame it! :lol:

(Of course, some Oliver Stone-type/Howard Dean-type would say that they now know how the war on terror is being run; like an D&D/AD&D 1st edition campaign!!! 8) )

i have sent the seller a msg just warning him of copyright infringment and also that monte cook is quite active on ebay too (well i know HE isnt, but its almost the same, with it being his wife Sue.)

might be worth others bombarding him and reporting him too.

Not much I can do anymore, eBay requires a credit card to register. So it seems, at least.

I don't see how this one has managed to stay up as long as it has:


** expired/removed eBay auction **


Scroll down past the listings and check out the picture.  Was this ever published and where the heck can I get one???  :D
