    Maybe a note to the ebay police will get his account pulled for unethical behavior / violation of their user agreement. I've seen it before and that will leave a mark.

    This is true, but ebay is no dummy either. If they do shut him down, he'll have to get new credit account numbers, mailing and email addresses, company name, and pay pal account (since ebay owns that too) and start with a seller rating of 0. Not cheap and a big pain in the butt. Cheaper for him to make nice with the original copyright holders. Just my thoughts thought.

    He is hoping he does just that

    Well I for one did thsi work for the benifit of the community to use for free and not to have it re-sold.

    I even said to the guy that if he put a link up to Media Car.org instead for my skin I would be happy with that... ( at least for my skin ).

    The full transcript can be found here.... http://www.digital-car.co.uk/forum/s...ead.php?t=8276

    I dont have time to start making new skins at the moment for any app but if I did I would defintly think twice before I posted it.

    I have ALWAYS given my work away free to be used not to make profit from and ALWAYS credited those that helped me.... he didn't even do that in this case either.

    The ad is very misleading too... it looks like your buying the software when in fact your buying hardware & a custmisation service so you dont have to.... thats defintily wrong. How ever after last time I found the EBAY system hard to report through so bar mailing these people, rooting them out and making it publically known its difficult to deal with. Its worse from CC's point of view though because its not just 'a' skin but hours and hours of work which is why I feel its appropriate that we all stay vigulant and let the developers know when some thing comes up.

    I posted some sections of the license agreement on http://www.mediaengine.org. If anyone goes there that bought the product, they will see it too.
