http://www.ebay.com/itm/Skydog-The-Duane-Allman-Retrospective-7CD-Set-digit al-download-ONLY-NO-CD-/291179466867?pt=Music_CDs&hash=item43cba61073

I reported this as such about a week ago, but nothing has happened. Am I wrong to think it violates ebay's terms of service? As far as I know, Skydog was never available as a download, so this stands out as a clear infringement.

Definitely piracy. Somehow, maneuvers like this tend to skate around eBay's policies at the moment. The bootleggers get pretty slick sometimes with the wording in their ads. You have to read everything VERY CAREFULLY. There was a case on Judge Judy where a girl was selling a photo of a phone (not the real phone) and someone bought it for like $300. It even stated in the ad "This auction is for a PICTURE of this phone" and the person bought it! Lots of scammers on eBay.

doesn't seem legal.People sell some weird stuff on Ebay.They probably don't really care,as they get their commission.Not a bad gig though,16 bucks for a click of the mouse.

You may be right that ebay does not care. Maybe a legitimate vendor of this set might be able to convince them to kill this off.....

At $16, I don';t see how it can be legit. I used to report a lot of these, but found eBay would probably take down 1 in 20 such listings. It's possible for the copyright owner to register on eBay. If that happens I presume the response would be far more effective.

There are lots of boots sold on eBay, and as long as the ABB management does not take any action, this will continue.
