No "chicken little" in this case. It's about import laws dealing with things like wholesale sales, not the type of product shipped. Some countries have import tariff issues or other import laws to protect local businesses. That is what the eBay Global Shipping Program is dealing with. The businesses in partnership with eBay for this program are limited due to specific tariff laws in specific countries, so they must adhere to those laws or lose the privilege of doing business in any given country. Shipping as an individual and where the shipper does not know in advance what is being shipped, the shipping agent is not held accountable. Since eBay Global Shipping Partners know what "category" an item is being sold in means they are held accountable, such as shipping items sold in the "Wholesale Lot" category. It is the sellers responsibility to know that selling in a particular category means he cannot ship using the Global Shipping Program, and must instead ship directly. In the video, the presenter is biased and expressing an erroneous conclusion based on this bias and not the actual facts (soooooo common these days); that incorrect conclusion being the reason the shipment got seized is because it was vacuum tubes. Not the case; it was due to the fact the seller shipped from a certain eBay category where the Global Shipping Program clearly cannot be used.
