Ebay - Why Pick on Me Not Hundreds of Others?
33rpm Record Selling - Complaint
INTERNET -- I have been selling on eBay for 13 years. Lately I found that Unofficial pressings of records are listed by the hundreds if not thousands. I have sold 5 or 6 this month alone. So now a Pink Floyd Live recording I had listed, and it had a bid and multiple watchers, was pulled from eBay completely because of Copyright Violation. I respect this to a point. But there are a couple others of same thing on eBay currently, and they were there before my item was listed about 5 days ago. Now I can't even contact the bidder that had bid on item because the Listing info is gone, into the void. I guess it's my fault I didn't print out as I listed it, but to be removed as if it never existed, this is scary. Lastly, why am I the sudden criminal, or victim in my opinion when hundreds of other Pink Floyd " unofficial pressings are currently still on there. The email from eBay said:
"The rights owner or an agent authorized to act on behalf of the rights owner, Pink Floyd Management, notified eBay that this listing violates intellectual property rights. When eBay receives a report of this type of violation, we remove the listing to comply with the law. ".
Again, I respect music ownership, but thousands of these are out there by many different groups, and it seems being sold on eBay all the time. I'll bet Pink Floyd members no nothing about my item on eBay so who is "Pink Floyd Management?
Anyway, I should end all my listings, and close my eBay account, but this month I am selling more items then I have sold in the last 5 years!
Anyway, I feel I am a scapegoat and lets see if any of my other items now listed, including another Pink Floyd, get pulled or not.
