Considering none of them have any bids, I doubt you have anything to
worry about.

I would suggest that what they are doing is probably exactly the same
as what Debian, Debian mirrors and sellers of Debian CD are doing
(redistributing 0AD, presumably in compliance with the existing
licenses) and if you have a problem with what these folks on eBay are
doing then you should have similar issues with Debian itself as well
as people selling Debian CDs. Of course if they aren't complying with
the existing license (did you check?), then you should be contacting
eBay instead of debian-legal.

As far as I can tell, what you want to do is discriminate against
people distributing 0AD from particular websites (including ebay.co.uk
but not including debian.org). This would violate DFSG item 5 (No
Discrimination Against Persons or Groups) and possibly DFSG item 6 (No
Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor). I would encourage you to
avoid this course of action.


I would encourage you to simply add a URL and some text to the website
on the game menu, that would probably be more effective anyway.
