This paper considers a family of active scalar equations with transport velocities which are more singular by a derivative of order β than the active scalar. We prove that the equations with 0 < β ≤ 2 are Lipschitz ill-posed for regular initial data. On the contrary, when 0 < β < 1 we show local well-posedness for patch-type weak solutions.
