The disk sellers are getting better....

I know we've had a few heated threads on this subject and I've already made my opinions known in the past. I don't expect people to sprout out the same discussion again, but I just had to share this with you:

Thousands of Classic games - DO NOT RESALE!

Now I could be wrong, but I'm willing to bet this person isn't an "official" seller for these products. So how can he have the cheek to say this in the advert:

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS ITEM IS NOT FOR RESALE.
THIS ITEM, THE DESCRIPTION AND IMAGES ARE OWNED BY ME, kidiauk. UNAUTHORISED COPYING OF THIS ITEM IS PROHIBITED.

Anybody on dialup too stupid (or cant invest a little time) to find the files on their own will buy those cds.

THIS ITEM IS OWNED BY ME has to be the most stupid message I ever read on eBay. If it didn't belong to him, how could he sell it anyway? :-D

(Yeah, smartass, he could be selling it for somebody else, but still... ;-))

Actually the saddest thing is how goddamned hard it is to get Ebay to take software piracy seriously.

Ebay make it damned difficult to report and then take so long acting that the auction gets to end and complete.

It would be great if Ebay got taken on by one of the "Police" for assisting software theft.

Sure, most people dont object to the titles themselves going around but people PROFITING form other peoples work is seriously naughty!

Yeah, the report page is hard to find, so I favorited it. All you need is this address and the item ID - http://pages.ebay.co.uk/help/contact_inline/index.html
