ebay seller stole my photo for auction

An eBay seller stole my Redsun RF-1210 photo for their auction. I published the photo to Flickr with all rights reserved, and was never asked if the photo could be used for any other purpose.

Don't buy anything from cnnjseller.

Update: Here's the stolen photo on the offender's Flickr account.

Update 2: Complaints have been filed with both eBay and Yahoo/Flickr. I no longer see the auction on eBay. Yahoo/Flickr required additional information from me regarding my claim of violation of copyright, and I just submitted the additional information to them.

Update 3: Yahoo has pulled the stolen image from Flickr.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/33241845@N04/3102124650/ is the photo as the person has it on flickr. Maybe you can get them to take it down.

Thanks for pointing that out! I've sent complaints to both eBay and Flickr.
