Ebay not letting you buy/sell an Android Box...
I used it to watch Netflix and don't need it anymore since my last TV upgrade.
I read their Policy ( https://www.ebay.ca/help/policies/prohi ... cy?id=4302 ) and found no reason why it would be prohibited. It doesn't transmit or receive signals, nor is is "surveillance".
Ebay's policy states:
So I called Ebay, and asked, exactly how did it violate the policy? I can't see why.The following types of electronic equipment are not allowed:
Electronic items prohibited by government agencies, including cell phone, GPS radar, and other signal jamming devices. More information on Canadian regulations can be found here
But once you remove the brand name, Ebay allows the listing. Weird, since the same brand name makes other junk.
Anyone have this experience? Who do you think is really behind this? The government? Or did Rogers/Bell/Telus say it's unlawful and Ebay just took their word for it without verifying with government?
What next, DOCSIS or DSL modems being banned from sale because they weren't sold by incumbent telecoms? Terminal equipment covers a ton of things, including "Voip", "modem" and "other", but not Set-Top-Boxes.
I guess Ebay doesn't care if Aliexpress eats its golden goose...
