    Well now how nifty ebay pulled one of my auctions ... great huh ... I can't even find it where I can revise it to relist or anything it's like it was never there ...err how irritating ...

    The auction was for a security camera made for your home or business ... supposedly it was pulled due to the fact that it came with a built in mic ... here was what ebay said .... :lol:

    I did tell them ... I listed like an ad ... it was along the lines of ...
    Do you live alone?
    Do you want better security ?
    blah blah blah .... if you answered yes to any of these questions then this auction is for you ... blah blah blah ... this is a camer with built in mic ... blah blah blah ... and then I listed the features ect. and noted again that you can not only record the criminals but also hear them brag about their crimes and that is was great for any home or business. That's why it was pulled because it has a mic on it ... probably some crook didn't want it being sold if the truth be known lol

    That's BS! I've, just last week, put "Nanny Cam" in eBay search and unless they cancelled all of them there are quite a few out there! Granted not all had mic's but quite a few did! (Also searched variations of security camera etc)

    when I was in Phoenix, WALMART had a mini security cam WITH a mic in it for sale... $78 if you must know. So apparently it's not illegal to own it everywhere.

    I do know, that video is submissible in court, but audio without a warrant is not. It's wire tapping, so I understand what they are attempting to do.

    I know here in Canada it is illegal to record anyone without their knowledge.

    Well I think we all remember monica and bill and they let it be permissable in court! As my understanding as long as one party knows that a conversation is being recorded it's okay. This is an outdoor security camera day/night in color and it has a built in mic ... so how could I relist it and be able to sell it? Now that ebay was so kind to tell me I couldn't?

    Hmmmm could you sell it as a video and "throwing in for free audio"? Or something like that?

    Ahhh so if this is so illegal how come there are a zillion shows on television with just this kind of thing on them? Police, stores etc.
