ROYALTY FREE RIP OFF



July 20, 2002

One of the sellers on E-bay is offering hard drives loaded with Royalty Free images. His most
recent sale was an 80GB Maxtor firewire Mac/PC external drive in perfect condition with over 60
RF titles for $760.00.


According to regular E-bay users this is not the first time this seller has offered such a
package. Clearly this is illegal and some RF companies have contacted E-bay asking that they
cancel the auction privileges of this person. So far E-bay has done nothing.


Information about the latest auction on July 17th can be found at
