Because the sale of any endangered species item may increase demand for such items, even encourage poaching, I would like to stress that these items should not be traded publicly on auctions such as eBay. Therefore I ask that you please add your signature to this petition today, asking eBay to adjust their User Agreement policies to forbid these items from being sold through their service. These items should be prohibited regardless of whether produced before or after the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA) as it's not possible to confirm that an item is eligible for trade under the ESA during an online auction. According to Provision (F) of Sec. 1538 of the ESA, eBay could be held liable if illegal items are sold via their service.
