I am pretty sure that some people do not KNOW they're doing something illegal when they are selling copies of printed material.

Copyright law is not universally aknowledged. So, this work of steadfast information is truly precious.

Come on, it was a nice try.  They put a (censored) naked chick on the auction listing.  That's gotta make up for breach of copyright, right? :roll:

Yeah, that was.. interesting.

Then again, with all the chainmail bikini's and succubi kickin' around in D&D, it's not entirely off-kilter either  :o

Ok, I'm not posting this one to report the guy, more for illustration purposes.  Here's an example of copyright violation that doesn't leave quite the same bad taste in your mouth as a guy making 100 PDFs and trying to hawk them for a quick buck:

http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie ... 72782&rd=1

The last picture is a photocopy of a WoG folio (early print, too!) made 20+ years ago.  In my mind, it's an artifact unto itself at this point.  What do you folks think?

WoG folios are pretty easy to find. Imo, it's no different than photocopying any of the old books.

He's also including a CD with books on it. :(

Pretty damn blatant.  He's a newbie at 50% feedback, I'm guessing it'll drop from there.

LOL! He's at 1 positive, 1 neutral ("We appreciate your business!" .. and he got a NEUTRAL with that comment, lol!), and his negative.

Seems like a real winner.

Nope. Copyrighted material ... 1 cent bids, but $4.99 shipping (for nice, even $5 sales) ... "please pay ASAP" ... three-day listing (hoping not to get caught before then) ... item will be, no doubt, sent on cheapest CD-R available ... there are red flags all over this situation.

Check out the seller's other items, too. It looks like CDs, books, other forms of media — all protected by copyright and all being sold with the .01/4.99 plan. This guy's a scam artist, pure and simple.

eBay

This one is kinda interesting. He's offering links to information, rather than providing the information. An odd wrinkle, and one I'm not really sure how to get eBay to act upon. Providing details about stuff like Feats that aren't in the SRD is violating copyright.
