So you're the type of person that wont do something if it's illegal?
Pack one up...
I guess you're right, most of my frustration is with getting shut out, as I'm all about getting this print up on my wall. Of course because I made only a "mental note" that they were going on sale on Thursday I totally spaced the release on Jim's site... then when they went on sale on EB I went to the EB store and saw the print on the front page... I had to make an account... 2 minutes later when I had finished... gone, gone, gone.
I must say that I give props to Jim too... he could easily put a $75 or $100 (possibly more) price tag originally on these, and they would still all sell. Instead he gives the rest of the profits he very much deserves to those with the best memory, quickest internet connection, those with friends they can coordinate... etc.
Just imagine the value of these prints if 90% of them went directly into the hands of someone who doesn't want to turn around and sell it. The demand would be even higher forcing higher selling prices to those that do.
I don't mean to rant, nor am I trashing selling prints on ebay (I've gotten my share there for cheaper than they were originally priced). I guess just because something isn't illegal doesn't mean you should do it.
I don't fart in church just because I wont go to jail for it.
