Can't sell OEM disks on tradme.

I've got Windows '95 and Windows NT OEM still sealed.
Trade me cancelled my auction saying you're not allowed to sell OEM.
Seems odd as I don't believe it's actually breaking the law.
Either way it seems to be TradeMe being anti collector again.
Who wants to pick them up in Wellington? otherwise rubbish they go.

Unless someone else really wants them.
I'll take them when I pick up the Sanyo.

What the bloody hell? It's not TradeMe's job to enforce Microsoft licensing, and since those products are well and truly beyond the end of their service lives I really don't see that Microsoft would have a problem with it either.

What version of NT?
Just the local Commodore hobo and middle-aged PC hoarder.
eisa on Trademe. A lasting reminder of a Compaq fetish when I was younger.
