MPAA. They'll assrape him, or ignore it completely.

Oh - if you decide to do this, make sure they don't decide to come after you, instead, since you're admitting to illegal possession of their IP (by their view)

What to do if you receive a bootleg

So, you've done all your research, but, despite all your precautions, you received a bootleg. What do you do?

Well, the first thing to do is to contact the seller and confront him with the problem. I always give the seller the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps he was unaware that the DVD was a bootleg. Give the seller a chance to rectify the problem. You should seek a full refund, including shipping charges, and return shipping. Remember that it is reasonable for the seller to request you return the item prior to receiving a refund.

If the seller is unwilling to make amends, then you should use every means at your disposal to get your money back, to get the seller removed from eBay and to possibly bring charges against the seller. Below are some resources to accomplish this:

1. File a chargeback through Paypal (if used). When filing the chargeback, make sure you quote the Paypal User Agreement that the seller is in violation of:

Your Information and your activities (including your payments and receipt of payments) through our Service shall not: (a) be false, inaccurate or misleading; (b) be fraudulent or involve the sale of counterfeit or stolen items; ... (e) infringe on any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other property rights or rights of publicity or privacy;


2. If Paypal denies your chargeback, you can then file a chargeback through your credit card company. It is important to file through Paypal first if you used Paypal. Failure to do so can cause you to loose your Paypal account.


3. Make sure you file an online fraud report with eBay after 30 days through the following link: http://crs.ebay.com/aw-cgi/ebayisapi.dll?crsstartpage


4. File a mail fraud report through the United Postal Service: http://www.framed.usps.com/postalinspectors/fraud/MailFraudComplaint.htm


5. File a fraud report with the National Fraud Information Center: http://63.222.159.194/repoform.htm


6. File a fraud report with the FBI's Internet Fraud Complaint Center: http://www.ifccfbi.gov/cf1.asp


7. See if the Copyright holder is a member of eBay's Verified Rights Owner (VeRO): http://pages.ebay.com/help/community/vero-aboutme.html. If they are a member follow the instructions for reporting in the appropriate "About Me" page.


8. Notify the Motion Picture Association of America at hotline@mpaa.org. Or call 1-800-NO-COPYS


9. Finally, leave appropriate feedback for the seller.

Sorry to hear that you got ripped off, but why is this posted in the General Firearm Forum?

My ebay acct was suspended a couple years ago for selling a bootleg music video. Stupid.

Oops! That was a mistake on my part. Can we get a mod to move this to General Discussion
