I searched the ebay forum for an appropriate thread before opening one but my special question seems not to be there ... How is Ebay's reaction about a reported picture and text theft - a.k.a. a rules violation in your country(s)? Let me specify: I'm a seller in Germany. This was my auction Transformers - God Ginrai/Powermaster Optimus Prime bei eBay.de: Action-Figuren (endet 23.01.11 19:51:42 MEZ) And this is the auction in question with two of my pics and part of my text Transformers - God Ginrai/Powermaster Optimus Prime g1 bei eBay.de: Action-Figuren (endet 06.03.11 20:00:32 MEZ) First I grumbled, than I reported to Ebay. Asap I've got an automatically generated message with the advice to contact the seller and talk to him/her nicely. In almost every issue that would be enough to get the seller to remove the stolen pics/text. Ebay wouldn't interfere. (So, practically I have to take me a lawyer ... ) I grumbled more and send the seller a nice message. All that came back was ............................... (yep, a lot of dots, I interpret that as some not so nice thoughts ) and my pictures and my text are used further. I'll let it be (and feel suddenly love for watermarks), but I'm interested if any of you have experiences in such a case.
