Default No themes on E~Bay?

Please Login to Remove!

So I looked today..mostly cause I was bored and always trying to find new or different themes for my Blackberry, and saw there were no Blackberry themes for sale on E~Bay..which I found odd. Are Blackberry themes prohibited there or by some sort of licence agreement?

Why would anyone want to buy a theme, when you can get almost any one you want custom made by one of our prolific creators here for free.

Just curious

rcbjr .

Was just an observation more then anything else. After seeing the great work here the last month or so that I have been registered, I totally agree with you! I just found it odd that on E~bay there wasn't anything, since you can find everything under the sun (except body parts!) on E~bay (lol). Then my overactive mind began wondering just *why* there wasn't, figuring it must have something to do with sofware agreements or something and thought I would ask .

It could also be very possible that maybe its against the law to sell copyrighted themes, or to sell themes created by software that is copyrighted such as plazmic.

its not against any TOS or copyright to sell themes created with the Plazmic software. the only reason anyone should even think about purchasing a theme is if the icon set used in it were made from scratch, and a copy of the theme's project files and the icons were available (in multiple formats for the icon, such as PSD).
