Only eBay can stop this in a heartbeat. All they have to do is ban people from selling new graphics cards or game consoles or whatever for 6 months. That’s it. People need to wise up and boycott eBay altogether until they wise up.
Ebay makes far too much money to ever do this willingly.
What are you talking about? You can't copyright a video card. Ebay is not doing anything illegal allowing video cards to be sold on their site, and there is nothing Nvidia can legally do to stop them.Ebay is making money off the scalpers there is no reason for them to stop it. On the other hand Nvidia and it's vendors are dealing with pissed off customers and losing sales with tie in sales. I suggested a solution to this issue one call from one of Nvidia's lawyers letting ebay, stock-x, Facebook market place know if there products are sold on there sites all sellers will need to be authorized resellers. or they can expect legal action seeking damages for copyright infringment

So what you're saying is that if I look for sold listings, the system does not discriminate between sales that were purposely closed and actual sold listings?I am sure that many of the auctions are closing with a false sale that creates the impression of very high prices. The sellers do this when they don't get the high bids they want (actual bidders only willing to go 20% above MSRP). They have a shill bid up a sale to the target price and close the sale. Relist, rinse repeat.
Honestly in this climate MS and Sony should just stop selling their consoles for a loss and sell the consoles for a higher price themselves and keep the profits vs allowing these low life scalpers (aka leeches) to make a quick buck.
GPUs are a different story though, what needs to happen is for all the Cryptocurrency servers to be shut down in China and where ever else they are currently running. Kill Crypto and this whole thing goes away. There is absolutely no reason from Crypto currency ponzi scheme to exist.
Retailers could put a lot more checks in place to help stop scalpers, I heard Scan who sell the FE cards in the UK are only allowing one FE card per household now, not foolproof I'm sure but it helps. Not that most retailers are bothered, many are now scalpers themselves.
I agree, Ponzi scheme is the wrong kind of scam to describe bitcoin. People are being tricked into paying money for an imaginary asset with no intrinsic value.I understand the anger but crypto currency is not a ponzi scheme and I don't see how shutting it down could be a legitimate option (if it's even possible).
