Fortunately, Ebay are usually very quick to pull auctions that dont
conform to their terms once they've been reported.
See if you can persuade *them* its okay to resell ;o)
I'm really not bothered
I don't think I have to talk to 'officer' - honest guv.
If that was the case every game and publication sold on ebay would be
Just read the copyright statement in most book and publications
''..not be lent, resold, hireed out...'
That would put amazon out of the used book business
What was the valid point? Glass' (like many or maybe MOST copyright
holders) explicitly forbid you from reselling their work to another.
If your point is that that condition isn't valid, perhaps you would
like to tell that to those who have recently settled out of court
regarding file sharing
Well, for a start, if he bought it from someone else then it would
probably be hard to make that stick as he'd not be bound by the terms
Secondly, no-one bothers about that kind of crap anyhow, as it's right
on the edge of legality.
As for file sharing, it has no relevance here as that's clearly
against the law as you are copying a piece of work, whereas this is
akin to selling second-hand computer games and CDs, you in theory are
forbidden to sell them by the manufacturer but it's not really legal
for them to put that restriction on you despite their whingeing.
There are shops dedicated to selling second-hand games, which is
"explicitly forbidden" and therefore totally illegal in your view yes?
Hmmm, I dunno. I mean, yes, you're right in as far as he cant be bound
to the original t&c, but then the sale to him in the first place is
technically unlawful, so maybe that takes precedence.
I disagree - Ebay most certainly *do* take that seriously, because
they always cancel all auctions that are reported to them as being
unlawful. Too right they dont bother setting up traces to find them
themselves, partly because they cant be bothered and partly because
they generate an income from successful sales, but they do cancel if
notified. TBH, I didnt bother reporting the auctions because I simply
couldnt be bothered - I was merely pointing out that the OP's apparent
generosity in passing on something he had was actually him trying to
sell something he technically had no right to sell
Yeah, okay, strike that last paragraph. It was a particularly poor
If anyone can be bothered to read them, the Terms and Conditions
relating to Glass's products can be found here:
On a quick look all the restrictions and penalties relate to the
subscriber so if you can distance yourself from that contractual
position they probably cannot touch you. The usual copyright etc.
restrictions still apply but as someone mentioned earlier the
straighforward sale of an unaltered document isn't usually a breach of
sorry, not so. read a few copyright statements. I suspect that in the case
of Glass's, there's an additional condition precluding reselling, but
general copyright doesn't preclude it, as per my other post.
You're not allowed to *duplicate* things.
