Yeah, those are all bootlegs. Don't buy them on eBay. The sellers, and anyone who sells live material like that are major scumbags.

If you're interested in DVDs like those, traders at Dime a Dozen post U2 DVDs often. They're free and perfectly legal, as long as you don't sell them (like the ebayers are).

They cost a lot, too... Some people have no conscience. But the first one has a really nice jacket design. Bootleggers + Photoshop, brrr...

And I thought eBay's rules prohibit the sale of bootlegs and pirated stuff.

Excellent idea. How do you do that?

Oh, and check this out - the seller's is a certain "captain-vinyl". And someone's actually bidding, too. Hmph.

You can get a lot of that stuff on U2torrents or through trading and stuff. Don't buy that shit off Ebay, it's just some guy with a DVD-R burner.

(not only that, but the artwork is LAME...there's some really great artwork posted for some U2 DVD's around the net)

Yes, they are bootlegs. Don't buy them. Some nice person who has them will probably make you a copy for free and just charge you the price of shipping and the cost of a blank CD whatever. Which is the way it should be.

I can't remember where I heard this, but hasn't Edge said that the band don't mind people swapping bootlegs but (in a threatening sort of tone) they'd better not charge for them.

Oh, and one other thing... the artwork to the first one is quite good (although the pic of Bono kneeling like that has become somewhat overused and clichéd) but the rest are rubbish.
