EBAY is an auction. not flat out reselling copywritten materials which you have no LEGAL claims to.i.e:A copyright is a bundle of rights, including the exclusive right to distribute, sell, duplicate, publicly perform, and create derivative works from the work. Copyright for newer works lasts for at least 70 years, depending upon whether the author is a person or a company. The length of copyright protection for older works is often difficult to determine.The fact that a work is old doesn't necessarily mean that the copyright on it has expired. Until the end of the term of protection, a copyright owner has the right to sell, transfer, assign, or license one or all of these exclusive rights to someone else.
Unless you are the person who owns all legal right herein you cannot resell copywritten items for profit. An auction is viewed differently, its a bidding war basically. Real Estate does it, so do big business...but if you wish to go ahead and just think people are stupid or whatever then that is fine that is your opinion.
