I looked at that eBay seller some more. Look at the few bad feedbacks: https://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=angels-smile&iid=152870213032&de=off&items=25&searchInterval=30&which=negative&interval=365&_trkparms=negative_365
The people giving bad feedbacks said the art was counterfeit or a print. The fraud eBay seller yells back that they are a competitor, implying that they’re lying.
I think they’re probably a power seller? They get special protection, I believe.
I had a power seller ripping me off about 10 years ago and all eBay would do is remove the individual auction, but they NEVER did anything to the rip-off. I tried so hard. Made phone calls, sent faxes, filed official complaints. All eBay did was send me canned messages, implying that maybe the person “didn’t know” that they weren’t supposed to steal my art.
Back then you could contact other buyers (their IDs were not hidden) so I wrote to a few who had given the thief feedback and gave them PROOF that this person was stealing and plagiarizing. Only one, I recall, believed me. All the others claimed that the fraud seller was in the right and I was the one with “problems.”
I finally fixed it by putting up competing auctions, “selling” the same artwork that she was using. I explained in the auction (in veiled terms, I didn’t know if I could call her out directly) that I was the original artist and that anyone showing the same art was a fraud. Finally, FINALLY she stopped stealing my art. Up until that time she just kept on putting up new auctions with my art, like she had not a care in the world. (And she didn’t. eBay was apparently on her side!)
But she couldn’t compete with me showing my OWN art alongside her ripped-off copies of my art. What could she do? Claim copyright infringement? I guess she could try… (she was so shameless!). But she just went on to rip someone else off, didn’t even miss a beat.
