Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us with this information. I understand how this situation could be of some concern.

I have reviewed the information that you provided regarding image and text theft, but at this point find that I do not have enough evidence to show that the member has violated any eBay rules.

Unfortunately, we will only be able to take action if the owner of the image or text writes to us. In some instances, certain members will allow others to use their images. It is also possible that they acquired the image from a mutual source. Therefore, we often cannot remove listings based on the representations of third parties whose credentials we cannot verify.

We do understand the potential for further issues in this type of situation. That is why, if you feel strongly about this issue, we recommend you contact the seller(s) to advise them of the information and recommend they contact us directly. Once we hear from them, we will take appropriate action.

We appreciate you taking the time to contact us with your concerns. Thank you for your participation in the eBay community.

Regards,

Landan
