The dude with a website only selling depecialized and grindhouse, how is that legally allowed. I mean why does Disney allow it. And how about that UK seller almost exclusively selling 4K77 and 4K83 discs with DNR and non DNR versions, and the Mandalorian and the Holiday Special, and Harmy Empire Strikes Back. And Ebay just allows it.

When it’s just a handful of people, it’s not worth it to Disney to go after them. More money and hassle than it’s worth. There will always be a few jerks doing this sort of thing. That’s inevitable. It becomes an issue for us when they go unchecked, so more people do it, and then more people. Then, suddenly, there’s so many people selling fan projects that it becomes worth it for Disney to take action.

And who do you think they’ll go after? Not the sellers. Suing each of them individually is too much effort. No, they’ll go after Harmy and Adywan and all of us who participate in helping bring their projects and projects like them to life.
They’ll shut down this site and sue the brains off of the creators. Easier for them to take the issue down at the source than try to go after every basement-dwelling jerk pawning them off on ebay.

So that’s why we have to try and take down as many of these listings ourselves. eBay doesn’t care on their own. But if a listing gets enough people reporting it, they might take it down. If the listings get taken down, we might just be able to keep the amount of sellers at a level that Disney won’t care about.
