    I just made a purchase of a Miles Davis "Think Different" poster from eBay. Actually, I didn't win the auction, but the seller offered to get me another one for $20 shipped. I thought it was a good deal and took it. I received it this past week, and it's obviously a reprint.

    Obviously illegal, right?

    The quality is ok. As a poster from a few feet it looks fine. If you look closely the fine lines are a bit blurred.

    It's 18 X 22

    This eBay "guides" page might offer some insight on the subject -- Fake Apple Posters

    It is a "bootleg" and is illegal by Apple and eBay standards. Ask for your money back (without bothering to return the poster) or you will report them to Apple and eBay.

    The seller should do so without question...

    Curious

    Did you give good feedback, and are you thinking of reporting to eBay ?

    I didn't give feedback and don't intend to. It was purchased outside of eBay, even though the offer was made after I lost a bid for another one. I probably won't mess with it.

    If you're happy with a $20 repro - I guess it's better than trying to fork up a lot more money for the real one. Still not legal though... me being a passionate collector, I choose to not deal with these people...
