  • This really tickles my tit!

    Just because someone buys something from me, does that give them the right to copy my listing and use my photos without asking?

    Item he is selling....

    No WAY!!!

    I'd say that is totally unacceptable!

    I would either use one of these...

    or send them a strongly worded message telling them to ...

      I am furious about this! Have you ever tried taking a photo of a coin like this? It takes bloody ages and a lot of patience to get it just right!

      Right now I would love to try something like this....

        Too right that it takes an age to get the pics just right... much time is spent like this...



        Hope that BoB will have a strong word with the very naughty seller

          Can't you report them? I doubt BOB would allow copying your hard work!!

            Well, I did report it, and all that I have done by creating this thread is increase traffic to the sellers listing containing my images

                  Hi BumbleBee. I had the same thing and have now included a "copyright" note on my profile. If it is now copied, I report to BoB and have the copied listing removed. Save yourself the &%#)! and include the wording. You'll have a stronger leg to stand on with BoB. I've also been that route with them and found my own solution. COPYRIGHT IT GIRL!
