    Would You...

    ...buy a multi CD set of bodybuilding videos on ebay?

    I'm thinking of making a compelation of bodybuilding CD's and putting them on ebay. The usual list of The Unbelievable, Blood and Guts, etc.

    One problem though, can't register on ebay. Don't have a credit card or one of the e-mail exstensions it asks for (.freeserve.co.uk, etc), anyway to get round this?

    Why would I buy what I can download?

    Also, you do realize that you are breaking the law by doing that right?! Those videos are copyrighted and therefore illegal to duplicate, and ESPECIALLY illegal to sell after you duplicate them.

    Oh I guess that makes it o.k. then.

    BTW--Could you send me a link to a ebay auction that features duplicated copyrighted videos? I am not saying they don't exist! I just can't seem to find any at the moment.

    I'm not your personal shopper.

    If you need proof though, go look around the "Dragonball Z" cd's, hundreds of copies there from what I remember when I was into it.

    You are the one trying to prove a point though. A pretty flimsy one at that.
    Back up your stance with what you've found, kind of like a contributor to the board posts refrences to the material he/she has uncovered.

    You may have the time to go through a few hundred auctions to find something to prove a point, I don't.

    Mammoth: Taking steroids are braking the law, what makes it (in your eyes) that makes that OK butnot copying a cd?

    Not a flame of any sort, just curious.

    Ok, I am going to make an educated guess as to what you just said so here it goes.

    To me copying for your own personal use is, in my eyes ok. Its the fact that you wanna copy something and sell it for a profit that bothers me. I know that taking steroids is illegal, but that is not the issue here. Yes, people can call me a hypocrite for saying that, but I am not stealing steroids from anybody. The government has its own agenda for why steroids are illegal. I just personally think that copying something and re-selling for your own profit is a shitty thing to do.

    I agree...people who try to do that on ebay are a disgrace IMO....I download tons of shit off of the net (software, movies, porn, music), but I would never even consider selling it. I always just give it away to those who want it.
