I'm off them. I have all 3, so, I'll not try to deny someone else the joy of owning one.

I'm pretty sure WOTC didn't produce a CD with all that on it!

You can not only report him to WOTC (see beginning of this thread) for violating their copyrights, but also to eBay (his listing will be ended early).

Excerpt from eBay Policies :

"Downloadable Media Policy

eBay prohibits the listing of items or products to be delivered electronically through the Internet. (...)

Examples

(...)
- A copy of a downloadable eBook"

This means anything distributed by email may not be sold via eBay. Please go ahead and report him. WOTC will be interested, too, as this eBook is sold by SVGames (http://www.svgames.com/) and WOTC loses license fees if someone buys this pirated material instead of the official eBook.

He really do cares for this. I informed him about some auction of D&D photocopies on EBay.it and they were struck down.

Hi All,

I have a module (B2)brought from an ebay seller that I am convinced is a (photo)copy.

reasons are

--cover has that 'wax' feel of modern print techniques
--cover is 2mm taller than contents
--contents is 2mm taller than another copy I have here.
--layout/positioning/borders of cover is different to another of the same module I have
--cover print is slightly blurred compared to my other copy
--inside booklet has black print smudges that are characteristic of photocopiers
--inside booklet stapes are different size (that of a 'normal' stapler)
--22 year old module looks unbelievably white

Of course a lot of this could be explaned by being a different print edition to my other copy (if there where different printings of these modules) - but add to it the following circumstantial evidence.

--seller has admitted disembling books for copying.
--seller has already appeared in this thread.

What do you think I should do - for the time being I am keeping it as evidence ... for the ammount of money involved it isn't worth any hassle, but it's sad knowing that he's making money by doing this. Maybe I should sell my own H1-4 'supermodule'  :wink:

The ironic thing is - I would be more than willing to but reproductions at a reasonable price (where is that pdf printing service?)

Sounds plausible from your description but why would anyone go through all the trouble of doing that with a B2, the dirt cheapest, most commonly available module of all time?  The ROI just doesn't make sense from the scammer's POV.  Unfortunately, with an orange B3 OTOH I could definitely see this happening.

The rights for the paper RPG are in Decipher's hands, but the ultimate possession of Tolkien rights is in the hand of Tolkien Enterprises I suppose.
