I do not think that Nelson and Billie hold the copyright, or trademark 
rather... I cannot remember who it is but I am sure Terry will ring in 
here with that info as we were discussing this a bit ago.

True, but they will sensor people from selling WTC items even though they 
were for sale prior to the terrible devastation... And I am sure if you 
tried to sell Rembrandt's they would kick you off or ban you, etc.. The 
point is, eBay only governs its system when it suits eBay... The thing is 
this guy is defrauding the consumer, and eBay lets him do it.. In fact 
none of the bidders contact info are revealed, so no one can warn them... 

One other thing to look at is that this persons that is pawning these 
fakes off is also selling fakes of Shawnee, and Disney items... I am sure 
if Disney got word of this eBay would here it.

I know what you mean.. The hell of it is there are people out there that 
are bidding hundreds of dollars just prior to Christmas on fakes.. I have 
had an email conversation or two with the guy doing this and he is not 
very personable, and quite defensive... He tells me that all the McCoy 
items he has listed are "in the book", and that "I'm crazy"... I asked 
him for an ISBN number of the book he is referring to, and have yet to 
hear back from him.

Sad, very sad...
