eBay stops digital download auctions

April 3, 2008

Today eBay announced a new policy to stop the selling of eBooks, mp3s and software. This is, in my opinion, a good move by eBay who have been criticised in the past for allowing the sale of digital downloads. There have been instances of free software such as being resold on eBay, clearly this is not right and the action taken by eBay should, hopefully, stop anything like this happening again. It will be interesting to see how legitimate amature authors, who sell their work on eBay, react to this.
