more that I did NOT need this week *sigh*

Reader Tammy just alerted me in comments that my photos & ideas are used in an ebook for sale digitally on eBay that include resale rights. I suspect this is the same joker that was doing the same thing 2 years ago just not on eBay. At that time that person had stolen ideas from all over the web & was selling as "sell this ebook to your users" in forums, so the person who alerted me by a cellphone call when I was in Scotland spread the word back then. Since my content is free and out there for so many years, I figure there's only so much I can do. Unfortunately with the Marauder's Map mess, I only joined the VeRO program for ebay.co.uk, not US, so I've go to go through the whole darn fax crap all over again. *sigh* I did the "ask seller a question" link telling the seller I'm reporting them since they're using my images without permission.

This is exactly why I don't have my decoration how-to's on my website, and why I'm working on my own real book instead. It makes me steam to see the greedy, opportunistic ones making money off people who generously provide their ideas online. That is not right in the least.

Thanks, Tammy, for letting me know. I'll shut this person down in eBay if I can, since I know I'm not the only person they stole from, then I'll get back to having a Happy Halloween...

Edit: there are 4 active listings for the ebook, so all 4 are now reported by fax...now it's up to eBay...
