Reported him.

I pointed out to Ebay that even if this guy used to work for TSR there is no way he has the right to resell electronic copies...not to mention somehow owning rights from multiple publishers.

His "I HAVE RESELLERS RIGHTS" thing just shows he knows what he is doing is illegal.

I am guessing buttbooboo is, going by the "I HAVE RESELLERS RIGHTS" post.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

** expired/removed eBay auction **


This guy even says in the description that he spent a lot of time at the copy machine making the photocopies.

He should just have picked up the Dragon CD and printed them from there.

AND

your choice of one of the Dragon issues except for 34 and 46


Reported him.

Not only is his listing illegal, it is also tricky.  You can have one of the Dragon magazines pictured...but not one of the two he really likes!

NO. I am not that seller. I also reported this person. I only posted that text from that auction because I thought it was patently absurd. I literally laughed out loud when I read that in the auction...

I am a programmer by trade and I know how hard it is to write and sell software and make any money off of it, and I absolutely respect the rights of all the wonderfully creative people out there that work long hours making my life more enjoyable. I don't copy and sell copyrighted materials and never will...

This seems like the most relevant thread in which to ask - what about authorized copies?

For a time, Columbia Games produced copies of some of their OOP Harn books.  These came with color maps (or color copies of maps - it varies).  I bought a collection that had a few of these, and as I've upgraded to originals, I've moved my copies into the extra/resell pile.

What are your thoughts on reselling these, assuming that I fully disclose what they are?

Also, that same collection had one unauthorized photocopy.  I would not resell it, but I might want to throw it in as a freebie with a purchase.  Is there a problem with that?

Some of the Ebay sellers here will have to chime in on adding a photocopy of an item to the actual item.

A photocopy of an item you actually own is certainly OK to make and keep.
