HI,JUST A SHORT PIECE ON THE "PUBLIC DOMAIN" FARCE THAT IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE PREVALENT BY THE DAY ON EBAY.

IF YOU ARE NOT AWARE OF THE "PUBLIC DOMAIN" SCAM THEN THIS IS HOW IT HAPPENS.

1. A SELLER COPIES A FILM (USUALLY OLDER FILMS) OR TV SERIES ONTO A DVD-R .

2.THEY LIST THE FILM OR TV SERIES AS BEING IN THE "PUBLIC DOMAIN" AND HAVING NO COPYRIGHT THEREFORE THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO COPY IT AND SELL IT.BUT THEY DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO SELL IT.

3.PEOPLE REPORT THESE LISTINGS BUT EBAY DON'T REMOVE THEM BECAUSE EBAY READ THE "PUBLIC DOMAIN" DISCLAIMER AND BELIEVE THIS BULL****.

4.THE SELLER MAKES MONEY FROM SELLING ILLEGALY COPIED FILMS AND TV PROGRAMMES.SOME SELLERS ARE MAKING A LOT OF MONEY FROM THIS .ONE SELLER HAS OVER 15000 FEEDBAKS BY DOING THIS AND ANOTHR HAS NEARLY 7000. TIMES THIS BY AT LEAST £2 A TRANSACTION AND IT COMES TO A FAIR BIT.

SOME OF THE FILMS I SEE AS LISTED IN THE "PUBLIC DOMAIN" ARE RIDICULOUS.HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES-

1.FAWLTY TOWERS (THE BBC TV SERIES) ,  2.THE BASIL RATHBONE SHERLOCK HOLMES FILMS,  3.ROOTS (TV SERIES),   4.THE YOUNG ONES (BBC TV SERIES),   5.THE 4 OLDER ST.TRINIANS FILMS,    6.ABBOTT AND COSTELLO,     7.HITCHCOCK FILMS,,,,                  THE LIST IS ENDLESS.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHO ACTUALLY OWNS THE COPYRIGHT TO THESE FILMS/TV PROGRAMMES THEN DO A BIT OF RESEARCH ON GOOGLE.IT'S EASY ENOUGH TO FIND OUT.

I REALLY DO THINK IT'S ABOUT TIME EBAY DID SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.IF YOU AGREE WITH ME THEN GIVE THIS REVIEW A VOTE.
