It looks like he just stole the description from this guy too:


** expired eBay auction **


Typical I guess for some guy selling pdfs of copyright material.

I don't know which is more infuriating --- the stupid sellers who lie about the copyright or the stupid buyers who can't find the torrents.

and all three had 1 bid  ... if one of us would do something like that ...you know the last set sold for xxx amount....why not start the next one at xxx+5 :lol:

seeing these did bring back some fond memories of the Vic-20 and C64 though...and typing in all that machine code from magazines for games (hoping you didn't make a mistake somewhere).

oh...and Telengard!

Does Ebay put a limit on how many items one can report in a given time period?

When I push the "Report this Item" button, the response I get is that the web page I want is not available.

However, if I am not signed into Ebay when I push the button, I get right to the reporting page.  When I sign in as part of the reporting process there is no problem.

Is it possible that Ebay is pissed at me for reporting too many items?

Ebay Australia mustn't care too much about copyright infringement. This guys auctions came in the discussion a couple of weeks ago and he has been reported by many I believe, but Ebay has done nothing about it.

It popped up again and I reported it again.  Not sure if it was the same user account though.  The disc was the same (down to the handwritten title).

This Seller discussed above one month ago is expanding his operations.

eBay listings

Now you can get Dune and Magic Realm on DVD plus many more titles.

Ebay Australia must think it is OK. I suppose anyone could buy them copy them and then sell them for less.

Nothing is being done about the Avalon Hill pirating.  The General Magazine has been pirated by 3 or 4 individuals for over 5 years now.  

Plus the guys at ahgeneral.org have setup shop in Michigan and have been selling reproductions of games and magazines more than this seller in Austrailia for years.  There are others as well.   Hasbro has done nothing to defend its copyright on any of these Avalon Hill Titles.

My guess is the copyrights on the magazines are so messed up becasue ownership passed back to the original authors in some cases that Hasbro isn't trying to do anything.

By not defending there copyright the items will end up in the public domain anyways.

A user of copyrighted materials only needs to demonstrate that the copyright owner had a history of not defending it's copyright.

As an aside, I have heard rumour that Hasbro are open to offers on the licencing of 1E AD&D in it's entirity. While not surrendering IP ownership, there presumably is scope for a licensee to reprint, alter, amend, reproduce, market, and use the AD&D monikor. We're talking million dolar deal here, but surely doable by some organization or consortium. Any rumours like this in the US?
