I'd like to read Amazon's mission statement and annual goals. "We will be everything to everybody at every second".

They sure do know how to keep their share of the market and make it so easy for us.

With as much $$ as I spend on Amazon a flippin email would have been nice to let me know about this new service.
I guess it was just a matter of time.


EDIT. I mean amazon...I can't believe I wrote ebay... ugghhhh

According to artists I know, if you join, they are allowed to copy your item.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

That hardly seems fair. Where did they hear this?

It's fine print in the agreement.
