Title: UQM on ebay
Post by: Krulle on October 31, 2019, 10:21:47 am
Someone (Matthias (http://www.star-control.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1338)) on the PoNaF forum pointed to an e-bay sale:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/123752048451

They even brand it as "MT Software Solution".

I tried reported the item, but I don't have an e-bay account, so e-bay does not let me report this item.


BTW, Matthias also cannot complete the registration procedure for this UQM forum.

Interesting, they state that only the installer and the screenshot are GNU GPL, the rest is their "protected IP"....
Which is simply not true,
MT Software Solutions is a British company...


Since under EU law they have to pay for the returns, we could massively buy the product, and return it unopened, and have ebay refund the stuff.
But as I wrote, I don't have (and don't want) an ebay account.

Alvarin on the PoNaF tried to report this item, but they refused to handle the complaint itself, as he is not the IP owner...

Paul Reiche III is on this forum (https://forum.uqm.stack.nl/index.php?action=profile;u=6934), and he can probably be reached through other channels as well. Has anyone tried to report it to him?

I don't think they check here for any value of regularly...

Also, can't message them private messages on their twitter account twitter.com/Dogar_And_Kazon ....
Don't want to send the  an e-mail to TfB....
