Search Help tips
Item Description and Picture Theft

eBay members are not allowed to use another eBay user's pictures or
descriptions in their listings or About Me page without the owner's
permission. Listings that violate eBay's Picture and Description Theft
policy may be removed early. Multiple violations of this policy can
result in suspension.

The following examples are not allowed on eBay.

A seller doesn't know the best way to describe an item. The seller
copies a substantial amount of another's description and pastes it
into a listing.
A seller takes someone else's picture and includes it in a listing
since it looks very similar to the item the seller is offering.
A seller likes the way a competitor's About Me page looks. The seller
copies the look and feel and a substantial amount of the text and
creates an About Me page.

Report another member who is using your text or images without your permission

Mark, 'Report' in the line of text above in the webpage hyperlinks to
a Report Form.

They will force him to remove that picture from his listing and stop
the auction early. Eventually if he does it again his account may be
