    Default What is with MP3 Music Packs for sale on Ebay?

    Hey Guys,

    I searched for this in the forums but didn't come across anything.

    What's the deal with Ebay sellers putting up collections of 100+ new house/tech/prog/etc. MP3s up for sale? It seems to me like this is illegal, but ebay doesn't pull it down. I always want to support the artist, so I am assuming I would never purchase these. I wanted to get some other peoples take on them.

    This couldn't be simpler.

    If you're against it, don't buy any.

    If you're not, do.

    Other people's opinions shouldn't effect how you choose to buy music.

    Just a discussion piece mate.

    I am in no way swayed by other peoples opinions (probably a lie. I cant help my subconcious sometimes). I have always been the one getting weird looks from my friends because I choose to purchase all my music.

    But in follow up to my post, why would Ebay not pull these down?

    Flag the auction for piracy and they likely will; eBay is a big site and they miss little stuff all the time.

    That is the one thing I really dislike about digital music though. There is no clean and legal way to resell it. I buy a lot of used CDs and vinyl for next to nothing ($0.10-$0.25 per disc in bulk), but I'll never have the opportunity to do that with digital.
