    Hate it when people do this and you've took the time and effort to take good pics of your items.

    theres a report item button under the listing info on the right hand side

    If you are hosting the photo change it to something 'good'

    If not, send him a bill for use of your copyrighted property

    Thanks. I am just so annoyed about it. There are not many of this item on eBay and I am the only person who bothered to take an actual picture of the item instead of just using stock photos. This lazy git comes along and just steals my photo and uses it in their listing. I emailed them and politely explained that what they had done was against eBay's rules and could they please remove it and I got back a load of foul abuse saying that I don't own the photo and to mind my own business. I replied to them explaining that it was my photo and they had no right to steal it and said I was reporting them and I got another email back saying not to keep harassing them!

    what was the photo off?

    No, I don't host but I think I will start watermarking my photos. Not sure how to do it though, will have to look later.

    That would be hilarious but I don't host pictures. Maybe I should start. How would I do that?

    Be the highest bidder then email saying you don't. Feel like paying as you can pay what u want and stick a load of abuse in

    Anyone know how long it takes eBay to remove the picture / listing? Their auction ends tomorrow morning. Last time I reported someone, eBay removed the listing almost immediately!

    You just need to create say a Photobucket account (Free to use) , upload the pictures, and use the direct link to paste into any image box.

    Thanks, I have done this. I uploaded my photos and added text with my username so no one can pinch them again. I was going to change my pictures over now but then thought I had better wait for eBay to investigate.

    They better end their listing, not because of the fact they stole my picture but because of the attitude I got!

    whats the item number, i'll bid a stupid amount at the last minute

    I guess so

    no because thats illegal i think what the DLM meant was sometimes he copies pictures of auctions if they are not someone elses eg generic pics of dvds blu rays electrical goods etc which is fine

    I do it anytime I use eBay
    It's only a picture

    I remember some bint around here complaining about the same thing, only it turned out that she'd also ripped the photos off from someone else. eBayers, man. Always causing bother.
