    I reported also!
    I think everyone here who reads this needs to go file a complaint.
    This guy really turns my stomach.

    I noticed one of the models in this compilation was Ralph Currell's H.G.Wells ironclad. I've e-mailed Ralph inviting him to complain about this pirate to eBay. Ralph is quite explicit on his site that any use of his models without his permission is prohibited.

    Regards,

    Just for interest, yesterday I reported an auction selling an MP3 collection on CD-Rs and that has already been withdrawn. It seems that Ebay (UK at least) do take steps to protect copyright.

    I reported the items as being on recordable media (against eBay policy unless the seller can prove they are the copyright holder)... Probably won't make a difference, but if they get twenty or fifty reports, they may have to do something about it!

    eBay doesn't care

    eBay specifically doesn't care. I have been through the rounds with them before. Unless you hold the copyright they claim that you cannot complain. I have anyway.

    The only way of stopping this is suiing eBay. eBay makes too much money off of this illegal activity. When I complained about this activity before, eBay retaliated by shutting down my account...check out my name, mr.gold, on ebay...I am no longer a registered user. Do you want your account shut down?

    I think that I am going to file a complaint with the ACLU. I do not have the bread to take on eBay. The ACLU, on the other hand???

    Aclu

    Just a thought...Instead of complaining to eBay...why don't we all take the time and write a complaint to the US Justice Dept and the ACLU?

    I Reported Him Too

    I would highly recommend everyone report this scum to eBay. I believe it does work.

    Who's mr.gold? Anybody heard of him until now?:twisted:

    I will also be getting on live chat this am to report the specific copyright infringements so they can be easily tracked down and I will bring up the previously mentioned plan to boycott eBay (which could affect me directly).

    Some of my models could be on there and I wouldn't even know it!
