    If the seller doesnt respond in short order, contact ebay, they've been known to be ruthless with deleting auctions when they're contacted about copyright/trademark/etc violations, which using your picture without your permission would be.

    I've had several auctions removed from ebay, usually takes about 24 hours from report.

    I just got this email from him .

    Do me a favor and stop emailing me, as your picture did not contribute to any
    sales, if this is even your picture. In addition, you could probably sue me
    for $1, and you would lose.

    Stop wasting your time.

    In that case, contact Ebay, tell them that a user of theirs is stealing your intellectual property, and also became abusive when asked to cease and decist. Also that you are in talks with your legal dept, and will hold Ebay as a co-respondent in this matter unless they take satisfactory action against that user.

    Should get him shut down cocky little @sshole.

    allenruble,

    To be honest you were a LITTLE agressive in your e-mail if this is a direct quote of your original e-mail:

    I hope you are going to give me some of your profits.For useing a PHOTO OF MY CAR in your sales at ebay . And you did not ask me to use it and I could sue you.
    I personally don't think that threatening him with legal action in the original e-mail was a good thing to do. Within your rights, yes, but a little hostile. Maybe that's why he responded like he did.

    Either way, if it really bothers you have e.Bay cancel his auction. If you were to try and sue him I have the distinct feeling this would be a case of "No Harm/No Foul" as he did not deformate your character or cause you to loose a profit.

    Shut him down. eBay sellers who steal photos are dishonest by nature. You'll be doing everyone a favor.

    They usually won't send an e-mail unless they need more information, or if it looks like it's going to cost them money/and or bad press.

    They will just quietly pull the auction
