Ugh my favorite part of all of this if they installed the custom one like the one you linked the first thing that comes up this can’t be bought or sold so they didn’t even edit the files lmao

Sorry mate - I have no idea what you just posted.

On the NJC custom set the first thing that pops up before the menu it says this must not be bought or sold it’s ironic because most of the time NJC set is being sold I just find it hilarious

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? 
Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Star Wars is the least of the problems ebay is going to have now with an “Other Formats” section where people can just put files on dropbox and sell them.

The MPAA is busy demonizing Kodi boxes as the new evil of the world and letting something like this go on?

I’m old enough to remember when the MPAA demonized VCR’s.

Maybe it’s time to fight dirty.

What do you mean fight dirty?

There is no way that i am aware of to fight dirty. I imagine that SilverWook is just feeling frustrated, as are many of us.

The only possible fix is to make it easier to download the source files for free, but that is legally fraught.
And if you look at any of the njvc threads, you can quickly understand that burning blu-ray discs is a not-so-easy task for the average user. If you don’t know what you are doing, or go cheap on the media, you will burn through lots of money before you do it right.

So then the only possible fix is to go around handing out high quality, pre-burned discs, for free. but that is also legally fraught.

so, in my opinion, there is nothing to be done.

Plus any other format that the MPAA/RIAA and their international equivalents considered a threat, including pressuring DAT machine manufacturers during the early days to cripple their functionality and limit their availability in ordinary retail outlets.

Also worth a double faceplam is the fact young Michael has managed to sell 12 copies of those Despecialized MP4s.

Bloody hell, if anybody reading this wants an MP4 of Despecialized that badly I’ll send you one for free or show you how to safely download the MKV for yourself.

Bloody hell, these people, just bloody hell. Argghh!

Shorter URL’s as demonstrated above work. Everything after the item number isn’t need to link to it.

I like the description on that last one - “BRAND NEW SEALED”!

He is back at again https://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-Original-Trilogy-Despecialized-Edition-3-Blu-Ray-Set-SEALED-BRAND-NEW/162758337109?hash=item25e5272255:g:FvoAAOSwIFtZ~TN1

Look what name they call themselves on EBAY!, Team Blu video. Is Dark Jedi’s Team Blu still active? ( not saying its the same people ).

From what i remember Dark Jedi was aware of this seller selling Team Blu’s amazing work. The seller must have recently changed his name on EBAY to Team Blu Video.

Well you’ve got to admire the commitment to their craft. Those blu-rays appear to be sealed very nicely in plastic and the whole range looks completely authentic and on the up-and-up. The casual shopper likely wouldn’t realise there was anything dodgy going on at all. It’s all kinds of wrong.

Making money by essentially stealing other people’s hard work and skill is deplorable. I hope Karma catches up with these scumbags one day.

No longer available - seems someone must have reported them.

Should be interesting to see how long it is before it re-appears back on ebay for sale again…
