Is there a way to contact Ebay over this? To say that these are being reproduced and sold without the authors permission? This was intended to be free in an effort to strengthen the Xbox community.
I was thinking about contacting Ebay about these items but wanted to wait to see what you guys think. I didnt know if DJB would rather do the talking because he is the creator, and therefore should be the only person truly making a profit for the troubles he went thru to make this bomb ass installers.

Even more insulting.... one of them says that its LIKE slayers autoinstaller.
HAHAHAHAHHAHA!!!!! whatever! Laughing

http://pages.ebay.com/help/contact_inline/index.html

This is ebay's 'Report listing violation' page. With in 24 hours the listing will be cancelled & if the user repeats the listing they will be suspended from ebay.

I did these 2 listed above, but for future occurrences you just click on "unauthorized copies of software or DVD' then click email & you will get an email form to list the item numbers that are in violation.

Damn right I'm pissed off about this!!

I'm contacting the sellers demanding they stop the auctions. If they don't I'll get eBay on their asses.

This is a joke, I'M the one who worked for months on end putting this all together, and so see some lameo just put it on ebay and sell it really makes my blood boil.

I'll keep you all informed about this...

Here is what the sellers told me:

1) #8157467692
You asked:
"Are you the author of this software? Are these legal copies?"
i bought a few from computer fair they come with covers

2) #8157571322
Hi there,no Iím not the author. All software on this CD is shareware and is available openly on the net. This is a installer that combines the software and makes it easy to install software(s) on your xbox. Contains dashboards,bios(which technically are illegal but there are no legal booting bios),xbox media cenre,disc ripping software etc. itís a menu driven system that only requires button pushes on the controller from you.

OK, both auctions 8157571322 and 8157467692 have been stopped.

I contacted the sellers and they agreed to remove it, which is nice because I didn't want to go to the extreme lengths of getting ebay involved.

Howver I have heard that there are some computer fairs in the UK that are selling it. This is information I required from a source, which name I'll keep anonymous to protect them:

its usually sold by a few people there amongst all the other stuff like anti virus stuff,etc,i mean you cant really sell xbox,s chipped but they still sell them and the one at edgabston cricket ground does them also check out www.computermarkets.co.uk ,if they sell it in birmingham they probably do it in the big one in manchester also

So, if ANYONE sees Auto-Installer Deluxe being sold at a market, in a shop, or online via amazon, ebay etc. PLEASE contact me urgently. I am making no money off this at the moment so I don't see why others should.

In the future I might set up a small service on xbox-hq where you can aquire a copy of the auto-installer by making a small $10-$15 US Donation. Please not this is not like a VIP membership either, it's only for the installer.

Anyways, thanks Custom Xmodz for bringing this to my attention.. Very Happy

Ebay don't let me sell premods, so this guy should'nt be able to sell AID, not to mention DJB made it.

Shareware, HA HA where does it say that

Word up DJB
Thats a good idea, if anyone should sell it its you. It seems your thinking the route of Linux. You can download it from the internet but if you donate to the cause you get premade discs, containers and printed documentation. This would be great for the people who dont have DVD burners or high speed internet. And Im sure they would feel better knowing they are donating to show their support for your work rather than giving money to a greedy asshat. he he, I love that word Laughing

You could sell it for $30 if you autographed it and included a "Making of AI" DVD! Wink

I'm not surprised that some tried selling it on ebay. If peole try to sell their kidney, grilled cheese sandwiches with the Virgin Mary on it, and water from Elvis' cup, why not an Autoinstaller? How many copies did they sell before BEFORE they were discovered?
