Submission + - eBay fees to rise in March

ScaryTom writes: Just received an email from eBay announcing an important change to eBay's EU structure talking about how they "have set up a new entity in the European Union, located in Luxembourg, called eBay Europe" effective from March 1st, 2007. What they aren't so keen to highlight is that they are rolling out some fee adjustments at the same time. The initial changes look beneficial, but if you read some of the later tables, and look past their somewhat short-sighted example sales, you'll see that the bottom line is that selling "Books, Music, DVDs, Film & TV, Video Games and ('Media') products" will soon incur a fee of 9% of the final sale price. This changes from the current graduated fee ranging from 5.25% to 1.75%.
