Congrats, Dimi... and all who helped! wave

... but he still has lots of stuff to sell at e-bay, some are obvious freewares on CDR's.

i followed the link to this guy's website and saw that one of the other CDs he sells contains children's software, including some disney stuff. my impression is that disney is very protective of their copyright (they challenged the copyright law to the supreme court recently because they don't want mickey mouse to become public domain...) anyway, i have a friend who works at Disney home video, i'm hoping she can send me an email address for someone in the legal department so this will be looked into.

Hmmm, I hope ebay's legal team goes after this guy for including those freeware games on the cd without proper authorization. I did notice on the website link on the first page of this thread, the site kinda implied that the user wasn't paying for the freeware games. It acted like the user was paying to receive Sixth Sense Investigations and the other games were thrown in for free. Of course, it doesn't mention anywhere that they were free to begin with! So, wrong wrong wrong not to give any credit for developers. Very shady.

I read this thread yesterday, and as I do a lot of buying, along with a little selling, on Ebay, it really burned me that these people are out there still trying to scam anyone they can. I sent an email to the Ebay investigations team regarding this guy, along with the link to this thread for a little background. I just received an email that they would definately investigate further, but that their policy prohibits them from giving me any details of their progress.

After reading the last few replies, guess I don't need a progress report afterall!! laugh laugh laugh

I too sent it to a contact at eBay UK.. the manager of the sports division. He sent it on to the gaming chap, so I can always ask if other action is being taken smile

I have to admit that the folks from Gameboomers along with the folks from the Tierra forums were the ones that took action more than anyone else. Congratulations boomers! You are one hell of a group of adventurers (in the good meaning - just writing this because another term I used before, bomb, got misunderstood smile )
