    I was looking on eBay to see if there was any HTEP on sale (there are some, really expensive) and saw other CDs. I see "Rare HT CD...", I ask myself what the hell is that, and check... Here's the tracklisting :

    System
    My Reason
    Wake Me
    Hole
    The Down Syndrome
    She Shines
    I just want your company
    It’s Going Down
    The Morning After
    Crawling (Different Lyrics)
    Forgotten (Different Lyrics)
    In the End (Different Lyrics)
    In the End (Rare Mix)
    Papercut (Lightfluid Mix)
    Part of Me (Different Lyrics)
    Point of Authority (Different Lyrics)
    Forgotten Live & Sweet Child of Mine (Live Cover)
    My December (Live)
    Crawling (9/11 Mix)

    And there's an other CD.

    Now, problem one : 6 tracks are not LP songs
    Problem two : They are selling their own compilation and make money with LP's songs. It's worst than sharing.

    Isn't that illegal?

    This is, in my opinion, pretty stupid...

    I guess it has to be legal seeing Ebay has continued to let these types of CDs sell since the appearance of Linkin Park. Back when they were just starting out, there was the Under Attack CD, which most of us know by now, and it was a huge rip off... And seeing it's continued to sell to this day, I guess it's legal.

    Personally it's dumb to want to waste your money on fake crap that you could easily get off the internet at no price and burn to your own CD or have someone burn it for you...

    Just my opinion.

    Yeah, I agree, but these people are making money with other persons that don't know if it's real or not...

    offtopic: the original movies havent been put out on dvd officially, so a bunch of singapore guys make fake DVDs from old copies on laserdisc or VHS, they suck at it. there are other people who make better copies, but put them on the internet. i just dont have access to the nice ones on the internet. :D

    Man, thats horrible, people trying to pass off Gray Daze and demos as 'rare'. The funny thing being, the people say that they're factory pressed cds and come factory sealed. Total bullshit. If you're selling something you shouldn't be able to lie like that. That should be illegal. Besides, all they're doing is burning CDs and selling them. Why isnt the RIAA on their ass? Leave sharers alone, we just want to listen to music. Go after the idiots who are selling it.

    Well, it's either the RIAA is playing favorites, or we must be missing some legal-deal with these CDs...

    Those six songs that "aren't Linkin Park" are actually songs Chester recorded as the vocalist with his old band, Grey Daze.

    you're getting ripped off. buying that cd in no way profits LP and is only helping deepen the pockets of the scam artists using Linkin Park's name to make money.

    Man those people are SO stupid...I mean, do some homework before you publish fake CDs over the net if you want people to buy it...
    I mean, if it's a "rare" HTEP, it means it was taped back over 1999 more or less....So how come It's Going Down and System (both published around 2001-2002...I'm not sure...surely not on 1999...!!) are on it....?!?!?

    Why waste your money and all (FAKE) tracks you can just download and burn onto a cd, and resell on Ebay just like they did.
