That guy who sold the fighting wheel is selling pdfs of Dragons from 1-339 (?).  He has sold 4 already and has a new listing up.

Dragon Magazine | eBay

Being new to this spotting copies business, I assume that this is a pretty dodgy.  8O   Is there a specific ebay email to send this to?

Also from this listing...
NOTE: All these files are freely available on the internet and the paperback and hardback books are long out of print, and no longer available to buy.

I wasn't aware that WOC was giving all this stuff away and if they were why would you pay this knucklehead for it?

Well, assuming it was "free" (it isn't), he probably thinks it's legal for him to distribute it (it isn't, either for free or for a profit.)

You can do that with Linux, incidentally.  It has a very specific "copyleft" license to get around the issue of distribution rights.  Unfortunately, that's led people to believe it can be done with other materials.

As to why someone would pay for it, I have no idea.  You'd have to be pretty dense.

EBay has to hate me.  I have reported illegal pdf auctions over 100 times today. No Joke. I just keep backing up in my browser and reporting them again and again.  Sooner or later someone is going to notice. :wink:

Get this guys (and keep up the good work!!).  This is the reply I got when I asked a few questions about the material this guy was selling.  I had asked wether he was a licensed distributor or had just downloaded and was burning material:

Does it really matter? But, to answer your question, no, I am not an "official" distributor. I paid for and downloaded the modules, and I have chosen to reproduce them... As a serious gamer, much like my target market, I know how expensive these things are. Therefore, I offer them as a service to my colleagues in the gaming community. I am not begging anyone to bid on these items, that is why the price is so low. If you are not fully satisfied with the products, I will gladly give refunds.  What I am doing is the same as if I downloaded the files, printed them, then sold the printed copies. It is not ILLEGAL, if that is what you are asking. Once you buy the download, it is yours to do what you wish with -- I have chosen to sell the downloads to the gaming community who would otherwise not be able to get their hands on this material (in the present day).....

So what do you all think?

It's obviously illegal.  And if he's as devoted to the gaming community as he says he is, he should be offering them for free on a website.
