Pirated copies of Artuira selling on ebay
« on: May 06, 2010, 03:45:06 pm »
Theres a seller who is repeatedly selling Artuira software for 9.99 and has been doing so for months now.

I've got in touch with ebay many times but they still don't ban this guy.

I've also got in touch with Arturia but I never received a reply.

I don't know what to do next.

It makes me sick that some joker is making money off other peoples  hard honest work.

I suggest everyone reports this guy to ebay, then they might actually take notice.

here are the listings.

I agree. It's frustrating when you pay for software while others rip off the software company. I just ordered and paid for the V2 Collection and am awaiting it's arrival myself.

The part I find interesting though, is that most pirates wouldn't give you $10 for software they can download for free. So how is this guy selling the copies for money? Then again he only has 137 feedbacks. Either way he should be shut down and yes, he's still in operation. I just went and looked. I also find it interesting that those that were dumb enough to buy from him posted feedback as well, so EBay could not only bust the pirate, but all those that bought the hacked software off him.

I guess legalwise, there is nothing eBay can do. There is no clue that it is not original retail software....

Of course the price should alert everybody....

We already reported this seller to eBay.
When you view such a listing, click on "Report item" to let eBay know this seller is offering counterfiet/pirated software.
If eBay gets enough reposts, they should shut him down.

Thanks,
Sean
