    Exclamation Is this legit? More ebay madness...

    Hello all,

    I'm new to posting on this forum, although I've been following it for a while now.

    Anyway, I was looking through ebay and I came across another one of those "promotional" copies of a Giga sample library, this time it's Gary's GigaHarp though going for a buy-it-now price of 14.99. I figured I should bring it up here and see if such a thing exists.

    Here is the link:

    Best Regards,
    Ric Zimmerman

    Nah, doesn't look legit, but Gary is the best person to answer this question. If it was promotional and not for re-sale what the heck is he doing selling it?

    Verdict: Illegal

    This is strange. At $14.95 the price is way too high!
    Seems fishy. I tried the link but it didn't work. Maybe it's been pulled from ebay already.

    Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

    Aw, Gary, then I got jipped - I paid $15.95 for it just last week - I want my dollar back!

    It's too bad to see this kind of stuff going on on eBay... eBay has such great potential, but everything has to be clouded by fool's like this. Thanks for posting.

    Gary,
    I know of a sample maker who, when he sees his samples on ebay, bids a million dollars to halt bidding. Then when the seller tries to collect (giving up all his mailing/personal info) he offers to sell him a legit copy as an option to turning him in.
    Just a thought.

    The auction for the illegal GigaHarp has come to an abrupt and premature end.

    Take this pirates:




    Whenever there is piracy and fraud...
    whenever there is sample oppression and rights trampled...
    whenever musicians are in peril...

    Take heart that GPO Man and MIDI Boy will save the day.
