yes unfortunately law in the uk is a bit weird... IF... someone takes a copy of something onto say DVD and then sells it.. they must also destroy or cease to use the copy.. (although under uk law depending how you read it the 'backup' is also a bit dodgy)
the auction now reads: "This auction is for the last two issues of The Crimp magazine which I am selling off, pending the publication of the complete run in the next few weeks (book form).
These two issues are no.39 and 40 and contain many card routines, cartoons, comedy and commentary..please be warned that some of the material will not be suitable to all readers.
Quite recently, a BAD MAN has sold off a near complete file, having illegally copied them on to a cd -rom, and I will therefore be issuing the complete run in book form so as to make capital of my own material, before these illegal cd-roms can spread too far. The book will also contain new material to help counteract the pirates.
Please note that I accept paypal only and buyer pays shipping."
i dont see any reference to James Badman saying or hinting at he's going to illegally sell or distribute the CD's thats certainly unlawful, and james badman would be within his rights to persue JS if he was named directly (he's not he's only referred to as 'a badman'.. also if jerry believes thats whats happening then he's within his rights to ask ebay to pull the other auction.
i'm happy to buy the book version though :) :)
