I'm amazed it took this long for action to be taken. 10+ years overdue ??

eBay has tons of listings for XXX in 1 boards, cabs, etc. Back when I first started noticing these on eBay (must be well over 10 years ago now ??) I reported them as auctions for "counterfeit merchandise", and eBay took absolutely zero action as far as I recall. They never even bothered to send me a reply. (IIRC, they also took zero action on MAME ROMs CD / DVD auctions on eBay).

Taking action against 1 business in the US will do nothing to stop the flood of cheap boards being made.
