Tom, as far as I know, currently an eBay seller can cancel any auction at any time, for virtually any (or even no particular) reason. Doesn't matter if there are bids or not.

This is different than the policy was a year or two ago - eBay probably figured it was too much of a hasssle to try and police. They just want money - lots of it preferably! They still get the listing fee if an auction is cancelled. They now get almost ten percent of every transaction (if it goes to completion and PayPal is used for payment...).

Anyone know differently?
