Talking about Ebay Rights!!! They didn't worry about my right when they suspended me. I put 127 diff. fabric fat quarters on to sell. I received a vero notice on one with no reason given why the item was pulled, so I, thinking there was a problem with the title, changed the title and put the fq fabric back on...nope....the problem was the fabric itself....so I find out through email Ebay has suspended me. I emailed the Vero Member and she tells me that the fabric is illegal. Seems there is a pending lawsuit between the fabric manufacturer and the Vero Member for making a fabric that has an image of a copyright from the vero member. What about my rights? I charged on credit for fabric to get my small business going. Now I am at a loss because of something that is between 2 other companies. I bought this fabric retail. Should not the shelves have been pulled BEFORE I purchased it? I feel I have been wronged by Ebay and the Vero Member, Chalk & Vermilion.

Great article! I hadn't heard about this anywhere, and it was cool to see the issue so well covered.

No shoes, no shirt, no service.
Ebay has the right to deny access to their site, as would a brick-and-mortar company.
Ebay could get their lawyers to include a caption on their terms and conditions page that states:
We have to pay for our bandwidth. Therefore, if an individual, company, enterprise, etc. is using Ebay's site, and Ebay has to pay for people to visit their site, they should be able to allow access as deemed necessary or make companies abide by their TOS (but put it in legal terms).

I feel Ebay should be protected from Auctionwatch & others! What Auctionwatch has engaged in is unfair business. They should be allowed to view Ebay for free but their interactions should be regulated (no access to Ebay member e-mails).

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
