Don't be so sure about that. Just look at the number of stupid posts by people who can't figure out how to drop a folder on their sd card and touch haret.

Somebody should report that guy. He could be taking cash from the pockets of the developers on this site.

If you have an ebay account, just select auction and hit the report button to ebay, and they will close that auction... I did that to a few of them... When you report the auction, just be sure to include XDA web site so ebay can see that the info is there for free, and those people selling the info is fraud.......

According to his listings he has sold 8 copies so far for US$10.

Also this one selling an SD card with it on for GBP30

I am not an ebay customer, but can he be stopped? He/They are selling a copy of freely available work. Only a chef can stop them if they claim property rights.

Best way is for an ebay customer to look at who purchased a copy, contact them through ebay contact email, let them know they were conned and ask if they will give you sellers name, address and/or email, then add comments to ebay forum.

I reported this crook as well. Maybe change your thread title to "eBay Scam" to attract more needed attention.

Some asshole tries to make easy money with the work of others, and against the free license too.
