Waterbury flag seller pulled from eBay

A Waterbury flag dealer has been barred from selling vintage American flags on eBay because of restrictions on who can buy the flags. Mark Albino says he's been selling vintage American flags on eBay for years. He's a designated eBay power seller because his auctions have resulted in tens of thousands of dollars in sales.

Albino says eBay has a problem because he won't sell the American flags to people in France, the Middle East or California, unless they are in the military in that state.

A spokesman for eBay says the massive auction site has pulled Albino's vintage flag sales off the site because his restrictions clash with eBay's rules and policies.

Albino says he won't sell the flag to people who might disrespect it.
