If you follow ebay auction 161638140583 you will notice bids of a user with name "0***l (678)".
This user is the same! So he bid on his own articles to generate a higher price.

the named accounts are all of the same person. So most likely used in combination.

Here are the details:

Homebrew Games / eBay conduct regarding homebrew games
« on: November 12, 2014, 14:15:14 PM »
We got the information from ebay, that it is not allowed to use the wording "homebrew" in our offers as this is automatically an invitation to use unlicensed software. this is not supported by eBay so they block any offers.

It seems the homebrew scene is automatically guilty for copyright and license violations according to that statement - a fact I personally do not understand but is obvious if you visit special websites supporting those violations in trademark and copyright without any notice.

As game vendors pays to be allowed to offer legal games on specific platforms (like PS3/PS4, XBOX etc.) it make sense to block those offers allowing to bypass the protection system. But to block offers only containing links or praise the scene for homebrew titles is not ok because these talented guys also offers game for system which do not deal with licensing of the protection system nor does all systems contain one to lockout developers. On the WII there is a homebrew scene which is allowed to offer games online for example. So what happens if I offer a WII with the text "supported by homebrew titles"?

Finally eBay is not right to assign homebrew programmer automatically to the gray market scene and associate them with mod-chips and copyright/trademark violations.

Homebrew Games / Homebrews & Copyright
« on: April 15, 2014, 14:40:37 PM »
is this an official game covering trademark of "smurf"?
I'm asking because on every location there is only a link to the coleco 1982 copyright and this game ads together with the upcoming smurf movie.

yesterday I found an ebay user which offers plenty of unknown coleco, intellivision and atari titles. Most of them are homebrew titles. Auctions starting at $40 up to $200 seems to be quite normal here.

Why are the homebrew title so less promoted? Are the programmer so badly organized? Do they harm copyright and legal of others? Titles are so difficulty and expensive in production? (which can't be if well organized).

Specially as development of a title requires a long time and good knowledge of a system I do not understand why after you have fruit in your hand you dump it for about 10-20 copies.

Any hints?
