ebay rant..

I know that this has been mentioned many many times but this still annoys me to no end… :frowning:

“This is a retail packaged product I have purchased in bulk from a distributor. The distributor owns all the copyrights or has permission from the original copyright owner where applicable. I am an authorized re-seller of this product.”

Surely he is not an authorised re-seller…I might be wrong, he is selling a lot of open source software up there. And its only legal if he mentions to ebay that this can be obtained for free right?

He can sell it perfectly legally, as long as he gives them the source code as well.

However the images he’s using to advertise the product require the copyright holders permission. So he could be breaking the law there.
