Hi,

As some of you know I manage to get some Pay Once Watch Forever for SKy TV cheap, and put them on ebay,

I sold two and got two left.

However Sky has reported me twice to ebay and both listings have been removed.

The first report was all about copyright, and in the listings I did copy and past most of it from Sky,

So I relisted more appropriatly, and claimed in the adver that i dont need it, as it was given as a present, with nothing else and a link to skys website

also took my own pictures instead of theeres, but still got reported and ebay removed with the following email:

Dear r4za129(ebayaccount@ulldin.com),

Thank you for your recent Fixed Price listing on eBay. Unfortunately, your item(s) breached one or more of our policies and had to be removed from the site. Any associated fees have been credited to your account and any bidders on this item have been notified.

170294492233 - Pay Once Watch Forever - Sky Box, Dish, Digital TV

because BSkyB Limited (British Sky Broadcasting) reported it to us for violating their intellectual property rights. When eBay is notified by a rights owner of an intellectual property rights infringement, eBay must remove the item in order to meet certain legal requirements.

Why did we remove your listing?

You may not list unauthorised copies of media on our site because selling them is both illegal and against eBay policy. Unauthorised copies include (but are not limited to) backup, pirated, duplicated, or bootlegged copies of software, video games, music, films, television programs, photographs and books, both published and unpublished.

Copyright owners possess the exclusive right to reproduce their copyrighted work, to distribute copies of their copyrighted work, and to perform or display their copyrighted work publicly.

Guideline: If the product you are selling is a copy of another work that you aren't authorised to copy, don't list the item. You may not list pirated or unauthorised copies of media material on eBay. Selling pirated or unauthorised copies of media material is a breach of copyright law.

Although there may be similar items currently listed on eBay, please be assured that your listings have not been targeted in any way. We review all listings that are reported to us by eBay members and participants in the VeRO (Verified Rights Owner) Programme, and we rely on these reports to help keep eBay a safe and reputable place to buy and sell.

What do you think? have there got a point, or is there a way around it.
