    I wish there was a listing of the models that he is selling, I'd like to check it to see if any of mine are among them.

    If you saw one of your models among the pictures and if you were to contact the pirate and tell him to remove your model, he might just remove the picture of your model from the e-bay advertisement and leave your model on the disks he is selling. You would never know unless you bought the disk!

    Found This Page On eBay

    Apparently, they state that you do have to be the property rights owner to complain about copyright infringement.

    The recordable media option still might work though (as noted previously in this thread).

    Recordable media is the complaint that I used.
    One more thing is that the auction is listed several times, each one with it's own auction number.
    I think we should file complaints on each one of them.

    Something is wrong here........

    YOU have to PROVE that you are the property rights owner in order to complain about copyright infringments............... and a thief who sells them illegally DOES NOT have too, and CAN sell them as long as the rightfully owner doesn't complain....................:cry:

    :cry: That's just not right!:cry:

    (No I am not yelling by using the caps, I'm just using those to make a point. Please do not take offense, because none is meant)

    I Listed Each One In The Complaint

    They have an option where you can put in up to ten so I listed them all at the same time.

    Has anybody contacted any of the copyright owners to let them know about this? That would be a reasonable action.

    No it's not right, John!
    EBay should be in just as much trouble for breaking the law as the pirate should be.
    By letting it happen and making a profit from it they are just as guilty.
    EBay needs to be held responsible for copyright infringement and the selling of stolen property.

    Is there any canon models on the list. When I complained in the past I also notified canon that there models whre being sold on ebay. I got a email saying thanks for letting them know about it, but the seller carried on selling the models.

    It's a shame large companies won't get involved, this is what is needed.

    Email's from everyone to canon are a good idea. Get a big company involved.
