Check this one out. The seller is offering what looks to be a PDF of a Mystic price list and titling it as 'free' but he wants $9.95 for it.He says he will send it electronically, then talks about shipping. Makes my head hurt.

I wonder if Mystic knows this guy is doing this?

This listing should be down shortly and he can go back to selling Chinese tube socks.

I wonder if this guy's customers know they can get this free of charge from Mystic? In fact,Mystic will send them more than they know what to do with.

I think he is in the wrong but to include all of the facts...
He says the catalog is free in the description. He says he just wants to be paid for indexing it and making it user friendly.

Copyright notices are no longer required in the USA, it is implied. Although having one on the hardcopy catalog gives Mystic a bit more benefit.
Mystic could contact eBay and they would take the listing down.

Yes. The purveyor of this valuable access information is trying obfuscation perhaps?

'People may not know of the existence of this catalog.'

It's a Mystic catalog for Gosh sake. Where's he been?

Anyone else notice he is asking for extra for Paypal payment? Isn't that a huge violation of eBay policy?

"We're not offering the catalog. We're offering the info of how to access this free catalog. The catalog is available on copyright owner's website.

ATTENTION: The catalog will be delivered as an electronic download. No paper catalog will be mailed.

The catalog is free to everyone.We just spent many hours of hard labor to organize the catalog pages into a searchable electronic catalog with bookmarks of issuing years. The only thing we are asking is the reward of our many hours of hard labor.
