At this point RIM is getting all of the good press and buzz they could want regarding the BB9000 and going after a site that legally purchased the item without knowledge it was allegedly the "property of RIM". If RIM wants negative press they can certainly go after him or just refund the cash and go after the seller.

Anyone ever thought that those 9000 were planted there by RIM knowing what would happen when it hit the net? RIM could be testing the waters and be able to deny any knowledge of the leak. Could be a market research tool. OK OK so I watch too many spy movies but hey maybe.

In a word... what? how could the seller/buyer NOT know it was property of RIM. Who the heck else would it belong to?

It was clearly purchased in good faith, and I read the eBay auction and no where did it say the phone was the "property of RIM" and that the buyer accepts stolen property. At the end of the day RIM could just buy it back or face the press about it. They should also do a better job of controlling their engineering samples, but then again this looked brand new.
