    eBay seller "vendingmachineparts" in Gambrills, MD is selling PDFs of old coin-op literature, which is dubious enough a pursuit, but he's just grabbing them freely on the internet and then selling them, which is really a dick move. I reported him for the two that he got from my website, but everyone else who has scanned stuff may want to check out his stuff and see if he stole anything from you:

    ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=vendingmachineparts&_nkw=pdf

    And just to make it easier for people to google this stuff and not be scammed into paying for something I'm making available for free:

    The Mills Panoram film jukebox manual is still under copyright to AMR Publishing and assigned to Victory Glass Company (the jukebox reproduction parts company).

    Seems like that prick from Wildcard Amusements from a year ago was doing the same thing with Randy Fromm's material and Clays guides.

    ... Why would it matter if I was international? Are email charges higher to an international email address?

    Looks like he may have lifted the Maresa catalog linked to on my website too:

    Because he's stupid. He marks it as "local pickup only" so there won't be any shipping charges, but then it won't let an international account try to "pick up" something in the US. (I'm guessing if he marks it "free shipping" then ebay still wants him to put in a tracking number after he "ships" it...)

    Ah, okay. I wasn't aware that on 'local pickup', ebay blocked 'non local' people. Interesting to know.
