Unfortunately, access to this particular listing or item has been blocked due to a Paris commercial court decision that bans trade of certain authentic perfumes and cosmetic products on eBay because of French selective distribution laws. eBay is appealing this ruling but is nevertheless required to enforce it. We are blocking your viewing in an effort to comply with this court decision. Regrettably, in some cases, we may prevent users from accessing items that are not within the scope of the decision because of limitations on existing technology.

Seems like every time I try to even look at any auction for Mac I get this page.

How long has this been going on?







Looks like Bare Minerals is blocked too.

As is Mary Kay



WTH???? I cannot even look at Bath and Body Works lotion

They are killing ebay with all this and the stupid fee hikes. But fake MAC has been an issue on ebay and people are getting ripped off. I think this MAC thing happened a couple months ago. You may be able to find stuff on e crater.

I can see over 3700 items for Bath and Body Works lotion, 2,085 for MAC eyeshadow, about 1,000 for Bare Minerals and 27,000 for Mary Kay.

Your post shows you are in Hoosierland (presumably US). Are you browsing on ebay.fr (France)?

Yes I am in USA...

EXTREME web browser oddity! I was using Opera, I got that message, I tried it using the Firefox browser and voila.... it works. I guess I panicked for nothing. That is so weird that changing web browsers would give me access to stuff I thought was totally blocked.

Thanks for pointing that out 'cause I was gonna go to work tomorrow and start on some kind of rant about how I can't even look at those items on eBay....then people would be like WTH are you talking about?

Yes, I can see items in all of the above categories, as well. No problems here, with ebay (well, not of that sort, anyway). Oh, and I use Firefox, but my SO uses IE, and both work.
