eBay Members & Copyright Theft
Many eBay sellers, including dealers continually infringe our IP (Intellectual Property) rights by using our copyright images. We invest considerable time and money in our photographs, and do not appreciate their misappropriation by eBay members or others, especially when they are using our effort to compete with us.
Please see our "Copyright" page for further information.
Copyright Thieves on eBay
We already have a page naming and shaming dealers using our images without permission. It's time we did the same for eBay, although if we include them all, this could be a very long page.
This page only contains 3 items from 2007, although we did not start naming and shaming until late in 2007, and it is incomplete.
eBay Copyright Thieves - Other Years
Dishonest eBay PowerSellers
Is this tautological?
You might be surprised at the number of eBay so-called PowerSellers who are dishonest and lazy enough to steal our images instead of taking their own photographs. According to eBay, their PowerSellers are "the pillars of our community". Pillocks more like!
But then, the more we see of eBay, the more we think of a den of thieves.
Seller ID. There is nothing to stop eBay members changing their "Seller ID", or opening a new account.
Item Number. We may have shown only one out of many similar items.
Date = End date or date added to this page if item still current.
Description = Description as used by the seller as his item title.
Price = Final selling price if known, otherwise "Current Price", or "Starting bid".
