Just send a message to the seller that what he is doing is illegal and against the law.  Then send a message to Ebay stating the same thing.  You can probably get him for keyword spamming as well:
Search criteria: Old original od&d odnd d&d dnd ad&d adnd advanced dungeons and dragons white brown box original collectors edition collector's Ed ed 3.5 35 3.0 3 TSR tsr WotC WOTC Wizards of the Coast Wizard's dungoen collecter gygax arneson arnesen supplement booklet

I don't see how WoTC or 3rd Edition figure into this auction at all do you?

Reported for copyright violation.  Seller doesn't have distribution rights, even if the PDFs were obtained legally.

Reported him for both keywording and bootlegging....two reports.

What really pisses me off is this guy's coy wording about how, "I'm not sure if you should already own a copy.  If you bid I'll assume you do."

Reported him twice just for that.

I reported this as well and ebay sent me a message saying that this listing does not appear to violate their policies.

I guess if 50% of the items aren't copied, you're good to go.  Weird! :roll:

Is there any acceptable amount of copying with an old module or magazine? I have boxes of incomplete modules, mostly missing pull out sheets or handouts. Can these missing pieces be copied and included with a module and sold? If so, how many pages? Would copies of covers be allowable?

As long as you sell it through eBay you are allowed to have 99.99% of the material photocopied.

I'm not really concerned about what Ebay allows but what people here think is ethical.
