I don't think it's sketchy to sell on your own website. Or even having a Buy it Now eBay store. But the idea of placing something like that directly onto eBay seems wrong.

Yeah, I'm on board with that.

Would there not be some sort of legal issue here? I'm sure the record companies wouldn't be too thrilled about this

That's what I was thinking. The record company gave it to them and allows them to charge whatever they want for it, fine. But it seems like putting it straight on eBay goes against...something. I just don't know what.

Well I'm sure that getting people to pay them a premium helps them more financially than selling it for suggested retail price and then watching the buyer turn a profit on ebay.

I'm sure the record companies don't enjoy seeing albums being sold used online, either, because they don't make any money on resale (especially knowing that the sellers have very likely ripped it into their computer), but that doesn't stop people from doing that.

I'm not sure where I was going there, but I'm half asleep.

Well, I mean, I don't care if the record store is purchasing the album themselves and THEN putting it on eBay. It should be illegal to resell albums, but for whatever reason, it's not, so more power to them. But if they're receiving it from the record company and then immediately putting it on eBay, how does the record company get there money?
