I was wondering if ebay allows the selling of promotional cds and vinyl?
It seems with all the research i have done on it, selling promo cds on e-bay is a very grey area.
Even on the e-bay message board it is confusing as to what is and what may be allowed to be sold. Even the rules that e-bay has set in place to do with this matter make it more confusing as too what is allowed to be sold as far as promo cds are concerned.
Nobody seems to know if selling promos on ebay after the outcome of the UMG vs Agustino case is allowed.

Just wondering as a long time collector.

Thanks in advance and hope this is posted in the forum:)

Go 'head. I've never had anything taken off because it was a promo.

Yep e-bay suspended my account 3 years ago for selling promos. I would like to auction a bunch off that i will never listen too, mainly black metal and death metal. Somewhere around 400 or so. Its part of my clean up as my apartment is too small, i will also put up another 400 retails. Promos are mainly BM and DM, but also have everything from thrash to prog rock as well.

Cheers
