    eBay seller stealing our photos

    There is a seller on fleabay who is selling seeds of various CPs and they are using photos from people in the CP community. I have found two of my photos used (which have now been removed) and I seem to recognize several other pics of Drosera and Nepenthes. You may want to take a look and see if this seller is using your photos. You can contact them directly and request deletion (They will comply, but be prepared for rudeness from the seller) of file a DMCA take-down form with eBay and let them handle it.

    See: http://www.ebay.com/sch/antlermagic6...p2047675.l2562

    Is it sad that I can't say I am terribly surprised?

    I don't expect anyone should be surprised by this -- its been going on for many years now. Intellectual property misappropriation is a persistent theme on the Internet and eBay has been - in my experience - a hotspot of such activity. Sad, yes. Surprising - not one bit.

    He used my burmannii pics, so I asked him to take it down. He/she was quite polite, and promised to take it down with no further trouble.

    /me laughs. Perhaps he got all the rudeness out of his system when dealing with me!

    Nobody likes getting the legal smackdown, Paul. Perhaps you tamed him!
