- The Leegin Ruling, which eBay wants to get over-turned is currently protecting manufacturers who want to protect the value of their product with MAP (minimum advertised price) They should have the right to protect the value of their product.
- eBay wants the government to repeal the ruling because they can't even prevent some of these manufacturers from abusing the VeRO (Verified Rights Owner) program. Which is their job.
- eBay is courting large Internet 500 retailers to begin selling on the site and offering deals on fees, while not offering anything to existing sellers except for lip-service.
- Now the video above is blaming Big Box Retailers for wanting to shut eBay down.

eBay is Afraid of Big Box Retailers!

Who is running this company?
