I'm not a laywer by any stretch of the imagination but wondering... If ebay is notified and does nothing isn't that illegal? Could something be sent elsewhere too?

If the copyright holder, or their representative, notifies Ebay and they do nothing, they'd be liable for contributory copyright infringement.  Notifications from "concerned citizens" mean very little because we can't state unequivically that the seller is violating a copyright.

So, out of curiosity . . . has eBay ever removed listings that someone has reported?  I know bclarkie mentioned that he had reported dozens in one day.

Were any removed?  Is is useless to even contact ebay?

I have seen several listings of illegal items which were closed (and even made non-accessible) after some reports.

OK guys, what I really could use is several people reporting this guy:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8771363566

as soon as possible. I already won several auctions, but what I'd like is for eBay to yank the ones that are up that I've bid on. I have a plan.......

This guy too. I think if enough people report him, they'll yank it.
Does anyone remember the contact info for the WotC rep who we used to report this stuff to?

Actually, I already reported him as well . . . that's what prompted me to inquire if ebay ever actually removes listings . . .

Awesome. The more people that report these guys, the more ammo I will have when it comes to blows with eBay. And I'm sure it will.

As noted above, I also reported that guy a bunch of times, for all of his illegal auctions.

10 AD D 1st Edition Rulebooks ebooks PDF format | eBay

Ad&d 2nd Edition | eBay

Will someone please report this numbnuts.  I am tired of doing it.  I tried reporting him for past auctions but to no avial, as usual.  Maybe someone else will have more luck than me.

Boy does this guy need kicked in the balls, twice. :roll:

  Five years on Ebay as a sterling citizen and he has 66 (sixty six!) total transactions completed.  Woo hoo!

Well, it seems my email to him last night convinced him that what he was doing was illegal and he has graciously decided to take the auctions down.  Seems that he has some sort of vendetta against WotC and was only doing it to get back at them. :roll:  Anyway, lets hope that this is the end of it, although truthfully I won't be surprised if they pop up again in the future, as for whatever reason they always seem to do so. :?
