i found this Ebay seller called Scubatoys1 out of Australia selling scuba equipment. I think they are even stealing the images from the Scubatoys website? I don't think Scubatoys has opened a store "down under". Get 'em boys! Do not buy from a seller on Ebay who copies Scubatoys!!

Wouldnt be the first time someones done this. I hd someone steal my image before. But it didnt bother me much. I just told myself maybe they didnt have a camera. But you should ask permission first.

Its one thing to take a personal image (you still should always ask), but its worse to take an image off one business then use it for another, thats just wrong.

Looks like Joe and Larry fixed it... The seller has changed their name.

Thats funny. I'm surprised they changed there name. I would think getting someone to change a name would be more difficult than removing a picture they stole.

Something like that could be VERY bad for business...nice to see Joe and Larry were on top of it so quickly.

Do you think that ebay has seen what Joe looks like and were scared? ;)

Scuba Toys - often imitated, but never duplicated!

You should check out this link. If you post your photos online anywhere....

It cannot stop people from stealing but at least it gives you recourse if you wish to...
