Every single one of this guy's auctions seem to be ebooks with misleading pictures. Naughty, no?

Notice how the buyer is also a seller of PDFs. Why do we bother with these guys? Are they really reducing the rarity or sale value of our collectables?

Create your own "Help Account" at Wizards' site and report each incidence of fraud/copyright theft.

I've been doing it and at least one guy has had to change id's/or state that he's selling the CD and not the PDF's.

If everyone helps, maybe we can get Ebay to banish these things completely.

The guy's got only 1 feedback. Negative feedback would have a big impact in this case.

You aren't suggesting I set up a new ebayaccount and bid and leave nice feedback?  :lol:

Would that be...so against the rules?  :wink:

Seems perfectly legit' to me. There's nothing on the auction to say that the PDFs are illegal. Now, if you were to win the auction, and then discover that they were illegal PDFs, you'd be breaking the law if you proceeded with the purchase. You'd be justified in leaving negative feedback highlighting that you'd been entrapped.

It seems that there has been a lot of inactivity on these things the last several weeks. Where have all the superheroes gone? :? It seems like the only confirmed kill the last few weeks has been andyburnsrules.

And the seller is using 1 day auctions.  So, there is no way that the official channels are going to do anything.

Heh.  I was going to try to complain to eBay about "this guy selling D&D stuff in PDF form on CDs" but figured I'd wait until after my TSR Dragon Magazine Archive finished.  Don't want any confusion.  :roll:

Here is an email that I just sent to Ebay. I am really starting to get pi$$ed about this.  I am just going to keep sending the email until someone responds.


Report problems with other eBay members > Problems with sellers > The problem you're having with your seller isn't listed

Member or Item being reported: tigerfishcomputers

Message: You guys have a huge Copyright infringement problem. I have seen so many sellers selling eBooks of illegally copyrighted material it is absolutely unbelieveable. I have sent a multitude of emails regarding these issues and very few have been acted on. Here is a listing of sellers auctions that currently in blatant violation of US Copyright laws. It might be a good idea if you did something about them quickly:

Welcome to eBay

This is a just a short list in a small grouping on your site.

Thanks

Clarkie,
Just got off the phone with Hillary Ross (or Roth?) at WoTC's Legal dept. and reported this f*ckface.  She took down the ebay id and auction number, but wouldn't tell me what they do after they get that info.  Anyway, I thought it would be more useful to call them than to contact ebay, but without knowing what WoTC will do it's hard to tell.

You can get to their legal dept. by calling (425) 226-6500.  Let's go after these assholes!
