What a messy end to a PayPal account the following story is. A problem which could have been corrected by someone at PayPal actually bothering to read the site/items in question. This mess just shows that PayPal doesn’t care, its a total automated merry go round of stupidity. It really is a must read, has some very interesting twists such as the banning of a family member’s PayPal for basically being associated with the victim seller in this case.
If you read nothing else on this site at all read this

A site that has alot of advice on how to fight eBays VERO program and DMCA ( ‘MURICA!!! :l ) notices they don’t work in the EU, UK, Russia or other sane places so no worries there anyhow, but they may affect your web hosting.
The VERO take down the ultimate weapon in big companies who don’t want you selling there goods 2nd hand or not could only exist in the world of eBay. Basically a huge company might not want you selling there items so they contact eBay, eBay then remove the items (genuine or not it don’t matter to them) with no proof or consultation, they then wait to here from the so called rights holder if its ok for you to sell that product of course thats not going to happen you just get ignored. I myself have fought off Microsoft twice, eBay don’t care though… no where else could a company force you to not sell goods/items you legally paid for as 2nd hand or used.
Luckily a site called Tabbers Tempations lists cases and issues and contains alot of very useful advice worth a read if your in that situation.
