hi Jim, thanks for checking. actually my ebay account got suspended yesterday since i sold "unauthorized" cd items according to ebay. those were off the sky/jason corder (databloem/Obscura) items. i see no reason why i couldn't do that ???
last auction the same happened to me with the Umbra Busso de la Lune discs and Keith Berry discs.. several warnings about the same issue..

now i'm up for restoring my account, but how the hell do i know some cds out of millions are illegal according to ebay's policy..?
i hope this problem will be solved quickly.
regards.

Could it because they're CDRs rather than CDs? It may be that eBay has some sort of blanket policy forbidding CDR sale, whether or not they are proper label-released CDRs. Just a thought.

Dont think so. I bought "millions" of cd-r's
from Ebay. So that could not be the point.
Perhaps you should just write "non silver cd"
in the item description. Saw that many people
do this that way.

SiF and Undershadow, thanks for your thoughts!
well, i read that cdr's are not against their policy.
descriptions should be of your own, however i admit i copy them from other sites.. is there the problem then??
also the Baghiri/Nimh - Entities cdr on Silentes wasn't accepted in any possible way, no matter what way i described it.
and about the Busso de la Lune cdrs, some were accepted others not, all with the same information, track titles only.. you (eBay) tell me ???

It's a copyright issue with CDRs; I went through the same thing a couple years ago.

Apparently, you can only sell CDRs if you own the copyright, even if the recording is an official release, and was never released as a regular CD.  I had my account frozen for selling my own CDRs, until I clearly stated in the description that I owned the copyright.  In the case of other people's CDRs, you have to avoid descriptions that state "CDR"; use "non-silver cd", or something else that clearly states it's not a 'real' CD, but that won't attarct the attention of eBay's automatic searches for violations of policy.

Yeah, it's a pain, especially when you see listings for things you KNOW are CDRs, but them's the rules...

I remember the ol' forumite "Caspian" once sold a bunch of cd's through the forum, and I picked up a couple of them.  Maybe you could list what you have and people can e-mail you with an offer there, Jim.

Post by: jim02 on July 09, 2008, 03:16:36 AM
SunDummy, yes you are right about the cdr policy, i checked it again and you need to own the copyrights to sell cdrs.
now i'm not sure whether a description of "non-silver" gets through their automatic scanning..
but i'll give it a try next time, if i still dare..  :-\
i hope there will be no more problems for me once this matter has been resolved, i can not even bid, all is frozen  :-[

much appreciated about your feedback fellows!

jim - can you send me the list of discs you are selling?

How timely:

Today I found a listing on eBay for my "Final Thaw" cdr.

Title:  "Sundummy FINAL THAW nadja oophoi steve roach alio die"
 (that's pretty good company, methinks... ;))

Description:  "Sundummy FINAL THAW non-silver CD released on DISSONANCE RECORDS, in a limited edition.
CD and inserts are in excellent condition."

So this guy is selling the CDR against policy, but he'll get around the filters using "non-silver CD" instead of CDR.   :-\

Sundummy, thanks for letting me know! yes, i noticed his listing because of the Paul Bradley items. it seems that the description on non-silver CD works!
i hope my account gets restored by the end of the week, but maybe it's even better they delay.. so they can hold me off spending around my money.. ;D
and Jim, thanks for your help again!

Ebay must have an automatic search program for "CDR" because I described one of my items as PREVIOUSLY on CDR, even though the current item was a standard CD, and I got tagged with a warning and I had to relist it.  I have sold CDR's many times (all official with artwork/labels, etc.) and nobody ever complained, most people who know this music know the more "obscure" items are CDR's. I've used "non-silver" once or twice and it works but I generally don't bother, nobody's trippin' over this issue, at least not yet. P.S. Please don't report me to the Ebay police...
