Did my part and reported them too. Hopefully ebay will see a lot of us reporting and take it seriously.
Note the part that I have highlighted. This is eBay's loophole for washing their hands of the situation. Should they hear back from the copyright holder, they will cancel the auction, otherwise they will let it run its course and collect their listing and final value fees.Subject: Thank You for Your Report (Community Watch)

I'll let you know if I get a reply and share it with youIs this an "Official CD". I didn't see it for sale in the parks at all and the cast members don't recall ever having sold it either (or the other park CDs you have on offer).
Are they home made compilations?
I can't find any reference on the Internet to the original (now closed)company that you say made it either.
That is the new listing that he put up the night before last. The Indiana Jones Attraction CD that was first reported here was pulled by eBay. Now, inexplicably, that listing is visible again but marked as a closed (i.e., "Bidding has ended for this item") auction.Just looked at the Indiana Jones CD and it isn't marked as closed.
It's still listed as normal.
If he's dumb enough to expose his e-mail address in the reply that you receive, be sure to pass it on to us.I've emailed the guy

Hello! Oh, Yes! If you ask any of the CMs if they remember the kiosks out in the park about 10-12 years ago, those were run by "supertrack" records. When the kiosks were closed, all of the extra stock went to various stores throughout the park, mainly Disneyana. They had a special kiosk situated directly across from the Indy Jones ride, on opening day, I was there! There were total of about 20 CD sets that were produced. They started off with the old Haunted Mansion record from the 60's, but then they started to produce NEW versions of the attractions, which, in my opinion, were MUCH better. You may have seen the HM and Pirates CDs in the parks. These copies are what was sold at the kiosks, NOT the special Disney records versions of those two attractions, which are now also out of print! Thanks for looking at my aucitons, Bill

If cargosupplyhq is a member here, or if one of our members knows this guy, I suggest he gets the CD-Rs off of eBay pronto. I'm going to go ahead and buy a couple/few. "Bill" is really not going to like what happens after that.I'm also sorry to see that at a certain point Ebay will wash their hands of it and let the license holders do the chasing down. Like Jay said, we all know how long Disney waits on these things. This guy will make a lot more money before anybody cares enough to stop him.
Not to mention a name, address, and telephone number for "Bill."Nothing like getting some solid evidence.
Now, I have a question about this. Once GNP supplies Ebay with the Verified Right's Ownership form...then what happens? What I mean is will Ebay then suspend all of his auctions of that material, or will they do as they've been doing by just suspending one, and "Bill" is free to list another one? How will they police that?I have received a reply from GNP Crescendo Records concerning cargosupplyhq's Star Trek CD-Rs. They will be sending eBay a Verified Rights Ownership (VeRO) form in order to get the listings pulled. (See my [post="30279"]post[/post] above about eBay's policy concerning recordable media and copyright owners/licensees.) I guess GNP operates faster than Disney.
I would imagine that now it is on GNP's "radar," they will hopefully keep an eye out for this guy.Now, I have a question about this.
