I agree. The people who deserve to be reported are those who are trying to make money by downloading illegal files from the internet and then selling them. (Especially true when they are shill bidding their own auctions.)

Even if you stated in the auction description that you will include a copy of the maps, I would never report it. I think it is legitimate. Selling the original map with a copy of the module is probably not OK, so everybody must draw the line for himself.

Looks like these auctions have been pulled.

Do you report them to the copyright owner or to eBay??

Can you post the link(s)?  I have seen several of these in the past and would like to be able to report them.

Hi John,

please report to Andrew Smith at Wizard of the Coast. His address is at the beginning of this thread.

I got 4 e-mails saying they had been cancelled by a copyright infringement watchdog group. I imagine it was you, Ralf. Good job!

Cool. Were you bidder or seller? Or both?

I think the green paper is a clear give-away.  The seller probably doesn't
know it's a photo-copy.  At least the copyrights notices are intact.   :wink:

Ralf, I'm ashamed of you. I give you a compliment and all you can do is bash me? For shame!

That's because I used Buy it Now.
I got an e-mail from eBay saying the previous auctions were cancelled. Funny, how can they be canceled when they were Buy it Nows?

Well, here comes the fun part. Should I just hammer him with a string of negatives, or let it rest, since he didn't get to sell them due to my BIN bids? Any opinions? Personally, I'm of a mind to pan him, since he obviously knew it was copyright infringement.
