OMG How ironic is this eBay talking about 'unfair trade practices'
Ya eBay it totally fair, they do not force to use there own payment system (so they get paid twice for each auction). eBay also do not ignore sellers braking eBays rules and blatantly lying (well unless that seller is making them a tump load of cash) Yup this is totally how the competition law should be changed!
***Original: DEMAND AN END TO UNFAIR TRADE PRACTICES ***

eBay was built on a simple idea – that we could empower people by building a global trading platform where practically anyone could buy or sell practically anything.
This idea is now under threat from brands who are trying to block the sale of their products on online marketplaces and other websites - regardless of whether such items are new or second-hand, genuine or fake.
We are therefore calling on the European Commission to amend EU competition law to stop these unfair trade practices. But we need your help to persuade them to take action.
