A good thing I think. I used to hate all those useless listings that would pop up when searching for something. Plus it becomes harder for scammers to expand their feedback.
Just hate eBay (spits) laying down the law arbitrarily as usual, pretending they really are doing anything to help buyers when it is all about the bottom line.

From 29th April, well be banning all goods that can be digitally downloaded or transferred electronically from being listed in any format on eBay.co.uk and eBay.ie. Were doing this to prevent bad experiences and preserve the integrity of the Feedback system.
While they are a small portion of the marketplace, listings for digital goods often lead to bad experiences for our buyers and contribute to a perception that eBay allows unauthorised or illegitimate items to be sold on the marketplace, such as electronic copies of books.
Unfortunately, these goods also create the potential for Feedback manipulation as they are often reproduced and then bought and sold at little or no cost to the seller and buyer.
This new policy will come into effect on 29th April 2008. We encourage any sellers who think they will be affected to read the Downloadable Media policy and review their listings accordingly.
