Maybe the fly-by-night cowboys should concentrate more on making the site
more functional, than ripping people off for their photos.

BTW, this is opt out, not opt in.

Sigh. So that'll encourage people to use stock photos, rather than showing
the dents, scratches etc on the real item. I wonder if sellers will be
surprised when they get more returns.

That explains why they have been 'encouraging' sellers to use images at
least 1000 pixels wide and high even though they only display in the
listing at 600 x 400 (or similar, I forget the actual numbers). I wonder
if they will be including hosted pictures or only those specifically
uploaded to the eBay gallery slots ?

I wonder how their new rules stand up to the copyright laws ? I would
have thought it should be 'opted out' by default not 'opted in'.

Cheers

You've probably given eBay a licence to use your stuff when you sign up.
Otherwise it would be rather difficult to display listings. Usually these
things are worded to allow the service a very broad range of powers to use
the information you submit to them.
