Hi all
I know after the fabulous job some of you have been doing fighting the ebay scum that you all (or is that y'all) will know what I need to know.

I'm acquainted with Les Dudek, doing a magazine article about him, and I just let him know that there is a bootleg of an old FM radio show of his currently up at ebay.

Les really wants to bust this guy's chops. He's asked for help in who to contact at ebay to get the item pulled and further, any way that the chump can be tracked to an address etc. (the very things that have happened concerning Allman boots lately)

So, those of you who have been on these guys like stink on ****, how does Les go about getting the item pulled and getting after the person in question?

Post here or PM me. Thanks so much in advance for your help.

I wonder if Les can, in the RIAA mode now in place, get a subpoena, using the DCMA as a basis. I may be wrong, but I believe, again as in the RIAA model, all you need to do is raise the allegation (no substantive proof required). If the guy is offering it on EBAY, EBAY may itself be in violation of several federal laws regarding copyrights. I wondered why the ABB itself was not taking EBAY to task in court over the same issue.

They make it hard to find but if you go to Ebay then click on HELP you can eventually get to a place where you can report auctions that may be violating the law or worse EBAY policy.

Now I reported a couple but as you may have seen posted the message you get back says basically... Unless YOU have some rights to or interest in the object that they aint gonna do nothing. In your case Les does have rights and may be able to get them to do something. I urge you to get him to try.

Sign up on eBay or use someone else's account and fill out a USER CONTACT FORM. Filling that out will get you his name, address and phone number; where you can contact him about all this..

http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/bootlegs.html

There used to be a special link to follow if you were the copyright holder of the unauthorized material. I can't find it now. However, if Les visits the link above and writes that he is the copyright holder and is demanding satisfaction (lest litigation result), I'd bet he'd get some cooperation. However, there could very well be a new auction tomorrow.
