Default Are Blu Ray's High Risk Items?

Is selling Blu Ray's on Ebay now High Risk Items?

I know that dvd box sets can be but with technology turning digital (Netflix,Hulu,Vudu,Cinemanow, and Amazon fire stick's) are Blu Ray's that are brand new high risk? I know at one time they were but have they cooled down any?

Might well be.

Will depend on the company that produces said blu ray. You must pay attention to that.

You are simply referring to format.

The content on said format is still protected. The only difference is BR is worth more, so when you get caught, they can give you higher fines.

How in the world would a difference in format mean you can sell whatever you want without license, permission, etc?

Blu ray is as about as safe as a rattlesnake on a birthday cake

You stand corrected is what you mean.

We are sure you do have correct posture.

Any type of media that can be easily replicated is considered high risk.

Is there any way of selling these things and keeping below the radar?

yes if you have all the legitimate invoices and receipts to prove to Amazon / eBay, otherwise expect to be shut down very quickly, especially if its not single disc DVDs you're selling....

By taking careful steps in the operations of your business plan.

Do your homework, check your items and never think that because another seller is flogging that blu ray you will be OK.

Avoid ever assuming.

That rattlesnake cake looks tasty but that kid is so happy to have it. Rsot did you give you son that birthday treat to prove yes your point ? Lol

Media is never safe unless you want to see your acct died a painful dealth. Unless you fire products are something else and it's an occasional sale just snuck in there. Point us to not make it your main thing and be veeewe careful

It's silly indeed but of course, easily copied so that could be the reasoning

I haven't been looking for or accidentally happened upon a VHS tape for ages - do people still buy/sell these?
