Hi Guy's,

There are some bootlegs on Ebay these days. We just see this guy now selling a few of them konus37 also known as Juice.

 

If this is the way we are going, I'm afraid we will be forced to stop making new games and share the roms.

 

So we need your help to stop this. Please report and bootlegs you will see starting here!

Thanks for your Help!

So, am I correct that the selections to make when reporting these items are:

 

Report Category = Copyright and trademark

Reason for Report = Counterfeit item or authenticity disclaimer

Detailed Reason = Counterfeit, fake, or replica items

FYI, the design of the board was downloaded from the Pixels Past website. There was a stack of about 25 blank boards he showed in an unrelated picture.

I'm not too much worried about, though

The CV fans will keep supporting their community and avoid those type of auctions

 

I keep saying that Juice should concentrate his efforts on something new for the community

 

A.n.y.w.a.y............

Sorry J-F .  I never chimed in when all that stuff was going on I just kept thinking to my self this guy is bad news.  Reason never seemed to calm him down he kept attacking and attacking.  I think he has shown his true colors he never came here to do something for the community, he saw a hole to attack and used some fake sympathy for people to gain some extra money.  He is a true loser who only came in to cause trouble.  Now that he got kicked out he is a spoiled brat attacking people that never even attacked him. You think if he truly felt attacked he would be duplicating Opcodes games but instead he is just attacking the whole community who never even attacked him.   

 

Too bad my job isn't mob enforcer or something then I would go visit him  ;)

was only able to file on the two left that are open. one has ended and was sold.   Sorry to see this happen to Collectorvision, it just ends up hurting the community by losing future games :(

The guys that last in this business, are the guys who fly straight. Low-key, quiet. But the guys who want it all, chicas, champagne, flash... they don't last.

One of his auctions was being used to allow people to download unreleased roms.  The link no longer works, but he tried:
