I can't believe people who believe all they read on the Internet!
Hey, EBay has a very good marketing, so you can trust them :roll:

My comment was aimed at the seller. If he has the product he is peddling, it is illegal. Why would you sell something so blatantly illegal on such a public forum?

Because the risk of getting caught is low. Additionally, even if he does get caught, it's very likely that the only repercussion will be that his auction gets shut down and he loses his listing fee.

Just as an aside, here on the streets of New York, movies are generally available for sale as $10 DVDs within a couple days of their release. CDs are available as well, for $5 each. Knock-off designer hand bags and sunglasses, fake rolexes, etc. are all available, publicly displayed on the streets. Sometimes, the vendors get caught and their wares get confiscated, but they rarely get anything more than a ticket -- certainly not enough to make their venture unprofitable...

Never been to NY, but in Bejing it was the same. everywhere had people selling bootleg clothing rolexes etc. I never encoujntered DVDs, but my friend cam back w/ a case of them from Shanghai when he was there.

I got a badss folex there. I probobly got ripped off (~US$20), but it syioll works 6mos later.

What can I say... The car had Florida plates! LOL

I'm not going to offend anyone from Spain here, but I was once driving down towards Costa Del Sol and was passed on the Freeway by a Citroeen 2CV with cabinet sticking out of the roof of the car. he had rolled back the top to be able to fit it in! And the car almost had the same angle as the car in the picture!
I had to race him ofcourse, the car barely did 100 Km/Hr, so I just cruised alongside him. He was pissed at me, he wanted to pass me. Typical Spanish manhood I guess and pride. So I let him pass me and then I passed him and the last he saw of me was my rear end lights! LOL It was very funny.
