CD32 compilations being sold on ebay?

Seen these, dont think its the guys that made them, so let me get this straight, the seller wants £3 for the priveledge of burning a 20p CD?

http://search.ebay.co.uk/_W0QQsassZsteveola2k1QQhtZ-1

Ive been looking to download these to play on my CD32 but theres no way im paying 3 quid

it's immoral and wrong for them to make money on this. Regardless of the cost!

I agree! Why should they earn when they have no right to earn from it?!!

You can find everyone at torrentportal.com / search for cd32..

Then you have almost all the compilations, without supportin some low life bastard.

Yeah I suppose its not much but it is wrong, now if the guys who took the time to make the compilations were selling them, id say that was fine

Thanks for that link Kriz, I had been trying edonkey but it was sooooo slow

I'm afraid I agree with keropi on this one. I've reported many similar cases in the past, but come on - he's only asking for £2.99, and nothing for postage. Sure it's only a CD and a stamp, but take off the PayPal and eBay fees and he's hardly making anything.

Different story altogether if he was charging £15.

Remember not everyone has broadband, and even those that do may have low monthly caps which prevent them from downloading a 400mb+ ISO.

Ultimately this is just another way of sharing.

I am with bippym. It's wrong to sell stuff which you downloaded from somewhere and than make a profit from it. Just report the seller. If you need a copy just ask someone here and you will get a copy.

Yeah I am gonna seed it for a while after I get it.. 61.2% at the moment.

Would I be correct in thinking that there was a CD32-100 compilation? That's not included in what im downloading?

Looking for this for ages though, just need to make an adaptor so I can run an ATX PSU with my newly acquired CD32 and pray that it still works!

The 200 game compilation has all games from the 100 compilation which might be the reason why its hard to get... I used to have it on server but dont think it's on there anymore.
