Maybe I should do this over and over again to help me get my head around this.
As a company we purchased 15 legitimate Windows 7 keys for use on our office machines. Consequently, we downscaled offices and only used 4 of the keys. The rest of them are still valid for use on other machines. We thought we might just as well sell them as there are no use for them, and what better place to sell than BoB!
Subsequent to the auction, we got a couple of notices from the BoB Community watch regarding the sales of illegal items and then a Warning for the sale thereof. The item was deleted by BoB (Auction ID 23782523), motivated by Microsoft South Africa. I do not understand why, as the keys are legitimate and the reason for selling the keys was not purchased with the intention to make a profit, but it so happened that they were being resold due to unforeseen circumstances.
When I contacted BoB Community watch I was told that all the Microsoft items were being removed in accordance with Microsoft South Africa's piracy rules and regulations. After my auction was closed, other auctions still continued and closed to successful bidders. Even more [FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']intriguing is the fact that there are auctions running nearly a week later, selling exactly the same items!?!?![/FONT]
[FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']Can someone please take the time and explain this to me as I am dumbstruck by the fact that what the proverbial "Goes for the goose, goes for the gander" apparantly doesn't![/FONT]
