I didn't really need to cos
a) they pulled his auction
b) it'd have shown on my closed listing

Anyway, I think if you're clever, you can direct the picture to be sent
to an alternate picture. I think it requires you to have a hidden
(something beginning with a dot) file in the home area of your website
to redirect unrecognised requests to an alternate picture (e.g. by
auction number)

Well, the shister only went and relisted exactly as before. Reported
again and removed.

Then, he bloody well did it again. Thankfully ebay were listenening.

Are there any sanctions placed by ebay if you are found to be copying
another listing?
