Have you declared it as "public domain" and given anyone the freedom to do with it as they wish. Just putting your file up for download doesn't make it public domain. In his description he says he doesn't know what it is, homebrew or prototype. If it truly is public domain than anyone has the right to commercially reproduce the game and sell it for profit.

 

True, I haven't specifically said "public domain". And I'm actually happy that people do enjoy my games.

 

Does it excuse misleading others by using terms like rare and prototype?

 

I'm not convinced that anything can be done for these eBay auctions of cartridges never officially released... other than point out when it's wrong, misleading... to me, it's a question of ethics, not a legal question... or I'm just being too passive and naive about the whole situation.

If you point it out to ebay as a violation of your copyright they should remove the listing.
