I think it boils down to an issue of perceptions here.  Caliban is
suggesting bullying actions on Mythic's part, where Mythic TOLD eBay
to stop BSI's sales.  I'm assuming, and I think Marian is as well,
that Mythic NOTIFIED eBay of the fact that BSI's actions were in
conflict with Mythic's EULA.  eBay, not Mythic, made the decision to
shut down BSI's sales.  Perhaps even at Mythic's request, but eBay
made the decision.  I could notify eBay that Bubba is selling stuff
that makes me teary-eyed because of the memories it brings back.
That's not going to cause eBay to choose to shut down Bubba's sales.
Even if I request that they do.

In short, eBay appears to agree with Mythic's claim.
