jdbullion Repeatedly Using Stolen Images on eBay

ebay user jdbullion item 112078755927 cropped

jdbullion from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada stole our 1874 Victoria Young Head Shield Sovereign photograph to use on eBay, without our permission, to try to sell his own. It is totally dishonest. Image theft is endemic on eBay, and most sellers appear not to care whether their buyers are deceived.

eBay Copyright Thieves

Many eBay vendors use our coin photographs to sell inferior quality coins on eBay. These eBay members are dishonest and should be avoided.
We believe eBay profits from IP rights infringements (copyright theft), and does so knowingly, only removing infringing items reluctantly, if at all.

What’s Wrong?

We invest a great deal of time, effort, and cost into creating some of the best photographic coin and gold bar images on the internet. We strongly object when lazy and dishonest people decide to use them without a by your leave or thanks, doing so in competition with us. It is always possible, even likely, that sellers who steal photographs do not own a similar item, and have the intention to totally defraud potential buyers.

Copyright theft is dishonest. We recommend you avoid doing business with dishonest dealers. The vendor is not only cheating us by stealing our copyright images, he is fraudulently or ignorantly misleading and deceiving all potential buyers. Gaining pecuniary advantage by deception is the definition of fraud.

Under section 107 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 it is a
criminal offence to possess in the course of a business with a view to
committing any act which infringes copyright, an article which is, and
which you know or have reason to believe is, an infringing copy of a
copyright work. The sentence for this offence is 3 months’ imprisonment
and/or a fine of £5,000. It is also a criminal offence to communicate a
work to the public in the course of a business, if you know or have reason
to believe that, by doing so, you are infringing copyright in that work.
The maximum sentence on indictment for this offence is 2 years or an
unlimited fine.”
