Submission + - Ebay seller sues Autodesk for $10 million dollars

jonniesmokes writes: Tim Vernor mostly sells comic books online, but when he found an old copy of Autocad R14 at a garage sale and tried to sell it on ebay, he incurred the wrath of Autodesk. They would like to make sure people buy new copies (at $4000 each) rather than get an old copy and so they use the DMCA to have ebay pull the listings. Tim decided, after getting kicked around by Autodesk, to kick back a little. Read about it here here and here.
