So I tried to sell a Kay short scale Rick-a-like on eBay this week and 3 days in, they pull the auction. :-/ Now, I know they're pretty heavy handed when it comes to these items, but I was careful not use the 'r' word and IMO the Kay type really isn't that close to the real thing (unlike the hondos grecos etc). But they still pull the auction. The bit that gets my goat is the mail they send to tell me *I'm* breaching copyright. I didn't manufacture the thing but also - particularly with this variation, I really don't think they have a leg to stand on legally - it's body shape is a little bit similar that's all really. I know it's not worth pursuing it but I think this is a little over the top and I was wondering if anyone else has had Ricky shut down their auction because their instrument looked 'a little bit like' a rickenbacker as opposed to a full on copy?
