reporting my stolen ebay listing.

so on occasion i go thru my buyers and see if any have resold my items. cause ive had problems with people stealing my listings. i'd be ok with them using my pics and stuff if they ask first. so i recently reported one of my buyer's cause the listing info and pics were all mine exactly the same but with a different font. it was taken down. and now they've relisted it with new pics but still some of my information. and not like normal measurements and things they could do themselves. they still are using my terms and conditions stuff [you can tell cause what they wrote is in a different font and my stuff is the same].

does the whole thing have to be copied? and should i report again? or just let it go?

let it go.. If you allow these things to keep bothering you you will lose your hair by next thursday ;)

I used to complain and report and finally just copyrighted my images with a big watermark and it did not stop them at all! Now i just let it go as theres too much else going on to let it bug me.. But thats my advice. ;)

i might get a little more upset if it was some professional seller stealing my shit but i really couldnt care less if someone used my information to resell an item they bought from me. your buyer has never sold an item for more than $25 and is pretty obviously not trying to rip you off they just dont want to sit there for 2 hours trying to remake a listing for a pair of pants and i really dont blame them.
I agree. The jeans probably didn't fit them. No need to be so anal.

The buyer also sold it for $21 cheaper than you sold it to them, so I wouldn't be too upset.

i said they copied stuff that isnt general stuff. its more so the principle of the matter. i dont care that they were resold. i resell stuff that doesnt fit all the time. just wanted peoples opinion. cause i think its ridiculous that someone cant do something for themselves. so i wasnt sure if i was overreacting. thanks.

Desiree, if you don't want people to copy your listing, maybe you should put a little note at the bottom saying that the information is not to be duplicated. It seems like the buyer, on her previous listings, had a little blurb at the bottom about not duplicating and maybe she felt that since your listing did not say that, she could copy it? I don't know. I would definitely be mad about the pictures without permission but I'd probably let the wording just go since it is pretty general info anyway

I had some of my buyers copy my listings to resell things they bought from me - that did not bother me at all. I'd rather them do that than pushing for a return of something that did not fit them.

Let it go....When people who didn't even buy your item are stealing your pictures and entire auction word for word, that's when you should be concerned. I started watermarking my auctions like Hips does, and since then, I have had no problems.

You actually take the time to go over what you're buyers are doing after the fact? Damn, wish I had spare time like that.

LOL that's what i was thinking! I agree with Hips, just water mark it and put a note on your auctions if it bothers you so much.

I completely understand how you can feel that... they used your pictures w/o asking. I would get annoyed by that because they can simply take their own pictures. I've noticed here that it's mostly an all or nothing scale. Either people on AF get mad, or they don't at all... not much of an in between.

Sorry, but what do you mean by that?? Who's mad?? We're just giving her our opinion. OP If it bothers you, that's fine, just water mark your pictures or state it in your auction that you do not want people copying your description/pictures. If they still do it, then go ahead, report them. It doesn't bother me either way .

What I meant was that people tend to either get upset that their listings are copied, or they don't care at all. I wasn't trying to say anyone was mad. My bad, I just didn't say it as clear as I would have liked.
