I believe you can sell used officially released material

None of the items mentioned above were officially released.

Sorry for the confusion. I was answering kimberlycable's question.
I agree that ones you found are illegal.

Just found this one on ebay, wondering if this is the kind of thing to report or not.  How do you tell if you should report it?

Yes.  This is not officially released material; rather, it is a collection of audience recordings that should not be sold on ebay or anywhere.  If any of it is sourced from official releases, then that is almost worse, and is similarly not allowed.  The only things you can sell are original copies of official releases.

I keep forgetting to include the item number of the items I am talking about.  Anyway, I reported this item on ebay just now, I do believe it is the kind of thing to report. Correct me if I am wrong.    Item #280156941333

Hmmm...not sure about that one, Kim.  If it's a legit promo CD then there's nothing wrong with it as far as I know. I know that the links Phil provided in the original post are not authorized and need to be reported.  So far they're still active.

Are we talking about the same link?  I was looking at the item number Kim gave as 320159554638, which is an auction for the "3 CD Rarities Set" http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320159554638&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fsearch.ebay.com%3A80%2Fsearch%2Fsearch.dll%3Ffrom%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dm37%26satitle%3D320159554638%26category0%3D%26fvi%3D1

No, I think we're all confusticated again.  Here's Kim's item that could be legit (not sure):

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280156941333&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fsearch.ebay.com%3A80%2Fsearch%2Fsearch.dll%3Ffrom%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dm37%26satitle%3D280156941333%26category0%3D%26fvi%3D1

I didn't realize that the "Rarities" auction had ended but it should have been pulled by ebay, same as the Slim's show and the Hammerstein show.  I wonder why they didn't pull them.  They're usually pretty good about taking care of it once they're reported.

Sorry everyone!  Somehow I did not get to that listing from the item number provided.  Anyway, I think this is fine to sell, and would not report it.  The official eBay policy on radio promo items is a bit hazy, but I personally own lots of promo versions of singles that I bought on eBay, and they have been officially released at least to the radio stations.  I think the key auctions to report are those where people are simply burning copies of audience recordings to make a profit, rather than re-selling an original copy of a released CD, even if only promotionally released.

As for this particular concert, according to Simon's spreadsheet, this is from the show of Aug. 19, 1994, at St. Dennis Theater in Montreal.  Simon also has this radio show listed, albeit with the date of June 19, 1995.  The CD itself says "The Week of January 16, 1995," but who's to say when it actually aired or when it was recorded by his source.  The more complete version is seeded here, http://www.crows-town.com/showthread.php?p=90#post90, although without any seeders for some time... Anyone out there? ;)
