I have lots of pictures on the web and my position has always been that if I put them there I may as well let folks use them if they wish. I'm not a photographer, so it's not my livelihood. This is just one less thing for me to be concerned with. I never use watermarks since I think they take away from the picture and really don;t do anything but detour those that are honest anyway.
 
I don't think I have ever seen one of my pictures used on eBay by someone else. Not sure why.

I have been guilty of this as until recently I was informed that picts have implied copyrights. I truly didn't know it was against the rules. Some picts say copyright but most don't  so I think the majority of the time they are honest mistakes. Of course using an incorrect pict isn't very bright. How does one contact a pict owner when there is no name to contact?

The seller flowersforme123 has used photos stolen from my website on quite a few of her auctions.
200133350054, 200133347754, 200133348402, 200133349756, 200133513649,  200133351248, 200133351560, 200133355503, 200133355900, 200133356435, 200133505052, 200133505219, 200133508875, 200133509578,  200133513268, 200133513649,

When I contacted her initially (I thought she used only two photos in two auctions) she denied it, and then said she gets 99% of her images from Google Images!
D'OH!

Then I get this- (in part)
. it was a mistke... your the first oerson who has ever emailed me like this so i dont want to ever offend you... can i ask you a question.. why do folks get so mad at folks using their photos...

The funniest thing is, the photos she stole are NOT of the plants she is trying to sell. 

So, whattya going to do?  I can't see the problem getting any better- only worse!
Susan
