RE: Thief stealing others arrangements and selling on Ebay
Yes, IT IS a crime. Music is an intellectual property and just because it's not an item you can see or touch it doesn't mean you can do whatever you want with it. He's not only stealing other people's ideas and property, he's plagiarized by replacing the real transcriber's names with his. If you are caught plagiarizing other people's work at school, you are kicked out of that school for not only cheating but pretending you wrote whatever that you plagiarized. So, yes, it is a crime, literally.

Why am I so upset over this? Not only did he steal my work as his own, I have asked Nintendo by contacting them and asking them for a possible publication of my transcriptions with them. Amazingly, they did reply and told me that they have no intentions of making any formal publication of the SMB sheets but they gave me permission to make them BUT not to sell them for profit. So it's literally illegal to sell ANYTHING of Nintendo's property, including notated music.

Only the composer, or the company that the composer sold the rights have the full authority to give permission to sell. Just because you altered one or changed the position of a slur does NOT mean you re-arranged it.

Plus, even if you DID have permission to sell them, they were still made by you and he took them and tried to sell them for his own gain. That's enough to file law suit against copyright enfringement(I think XD).
