I reported that guy, too, Allan.  I guess I should have mentioned it here.

... I am afraid, WOTC has stopped taking down those auctions. The recently reported auctions were never stopped.   :(

That's really disappointing. WotC isn't on their Verified Rights Owner list.  I know it's time-consuming to chase these guys down, but it really just comes down to filling out a form.  WE find 'em all.

It just shows you that Wizards really does not care about anything BUT their d20 Fantasy monstrosity.

And just to confirm, Hasbro is not a member, either.

Apparently, WotC was simply sending a nastygram to those people violating their IP rights, not having it pulled by eBay.

WOTC did a great job taking those auctions down. I hope, Mr. Smith is simply on holiday or something. On the other hand, I could understand if they stopped pursuing these cases. For them, it's no financial gain, but additional work. The only company which is probably financially hurt by those illegal auctions is SVGames, the licensee for PDF versions of the old gaming material.

Perhaps we should be trying to contact SVgames.

I'm not sure, if this helps. SVGames is only the licensee, not the holder of the copyright. As I understand eBay's rules, only the copyright owner can challenge the auction.

If the current auctions aren't stopped, maybe it's not a bad idea to ask Captain PDFKillah to do the job.  8)

What a joke. Note the poor feedback and the fact that the seller is no longer a registered user.

Exactly how delusional does one have to be to say: "Hey, I think I'll take a bunch of stuff STILL currently in print and protected by laws which I obviously don't understand, then put it all on a CD and sell it to other idiots. Yeah! That's a great idea!"

The people who do this are morons. Every single one of the them.

This is up for grabs again. I tried a different tactic this time and reported the auction directly to eBay. Let's see how they respond ...

What's up, Ralf?  

This looks like an original product, a legal software sale.  What am I missing?

Check the not-so-fine-print at the bottom:

"Item comes in a DVD style case with some artwork and in the CD-R format.If you are unsure what this means"

Definitely not original, or legal!
