Default Not sure how I should feel about this?

So I own this ticket...

image host

Just noticed there's a guy on eBay selling magnets of this exact ticket. Same section, row, seat. He apparently swiped my picture to create them. If you click on his picture, it doesn't even look like a magnet. It looks like my picture. A little annoyed...Not sure if that's all I should be.

If you read his negative feedback, there are complaints about the quality of his product, which I guess explains why he's using my picture and not a picture of his magnet. I know I can report him for that, but what will that accomplish?

Thoughts?

I would report him. He shouldn't be doing that. Who knows if ebay will care, though...

I would report him too. Even if eBay does nothing, which is most likely since you did post the picture somewhere for people to see and it is not copyrighted and in the public domain, BUT it is still the principle of the issue that is at the heart of the matter.
If you ask a question of the seller about the item on the eBay listing page will it show on the listing page ? If it does I would ask him why he pirated your picture for his product , and also without your permission .

He can use the image to make the magnet-- except perhaps due to the Rams logo--, but shouldn't be allowed to use the picture of your actual ticket for the sale.

Only if the seller checks a box for it ebay to do so, which he almost certainly won't if someone is calling him out for swiping their image.

Some guy used my photobucket account years ago to sell all kinds of Nebraska Indians items. There is also a guy on ebay right now by the username Skurfan who swipes images from other people's auctions and sells them as "postcard copy". He racks up the negatives for it, but ebay doesn't care...and he continues to list these in the postcard category.

It's an invasion of your privacy, so I understand that you are annoyed. And it seems unethical for a stranger to profit from a photo of something that you own without cutting you in for some of the money. On the other hand, you must have posted the image on the net knowing that almost anything can happen to an image on the net. You probably didn't copyright the image. Was a law broken? What harm have you suffered? If anything, he is making your unique ticket all the more famous (and valuable?). If I were you, I'd demand that he send you a dozen free magnets and let it go at that.

as all the artist who post online will tell you add a watermark

also is the picture yours or did you copy it from who you purchased it from?

eBay wont care. I have a 2005 NY Jets Team signed football that I posted online showing it off and a seller swiped the pic and argued with me that it was his football. I reported it to eBay. The rep even sided with me but in the end, his (or my) football sold for over 200.00 and the pic stayed up the entire auction.

I've had a similar issue with photos I've posted on this site being copied to another site. I'm totally cool if a board member copies a photo for their reference (as I've done many times), but not sure when a business site copies pics for their website. Do photos posted here become property of Net54?
