serves you right for trying to flog it.

notice the name of the forum is filesharing not legal tips, people here have no idea what it is best to do in a situation like this because they are not solicitors.

I suggest you either contact one and terminate the ebay auction immediately.

I agree. This is a filesharing community and people who try to make a profit out of this community are the scum of the earth. I hope this teaches you a valuable lesson.

There is a certain moral ambuguity in sharing files, but trying to make money from other people&#39;s work is, and always will be, wrong.

I would not reply to them but cancel the auction, by replying you will be admitting guilt and may leave yourself open to a well deserved round of legal action.

Trying to sell a downloaded dvd is bad <_<

Selling it on e-bay is just plain stupid :lol:

Serves you right I say&#33;

And telling them you weren&#39;t actually going to sell it,just cash in the money wouldn&#39;t really do you good either.
Then they&#39;ll just sue you for fraud. :smilie4:

You&#39;re right this is the kind of shit that gives us all a bad name.

I met a guy in the pub a month back and he was fucking proud that he used BT to download and sell films. Asshole. I think his IP address would be a prime candidate for Peer Guardian and the like. <_<

I&#39;d like to think he won&#39;t be doing this again, he&#39;s hardly the master criminal after all. Though if you look down he&#39;s been after making DVD&#39;s for a while...I dread to think of the quality. :ph34r:

The way it should be. :01:

I get a lot of people asking me to get stuff for them (and offering me money) but I usually tell them that I can show them how to get it themselves but I&#39;m not in the business of cheap knock-offs.

this shows us the evilness of making profit from something that we didn&#39;t pay to receive
