The nerve of some people! I bed that their pony is really ugly and use a picture of a nice pony.
Maybe you can contact ebay about it. Send them a e-mail. I am sorry I  only buy on ebay so I am not much of a help  :(
Hope you can disolve it!

Ugh, some people D|

There's a report button on the far right side of the top of the description bar~

However if ebay doesn't remove it promptly, I'd contact the seller.

thank you so much!!
I reported it!!
It's actually a pony accessory so they prolly thought no one would notice,
heck, I've actually been watching the item for 6 days (to see if it would sell as high as mine did) and I didn't even notice!!

I would report it via the button and also maybe phone eBay customer services? I think eBay can get in a lot of trouble for that as well as the seller who stole the photo so they should remove it fairly promptly. I would also double check the sellers previous listings and see if they stole any more of your pics.

Let us know who the seller is, too, so I can mark them down that they steal photos for auctions!

How rude! This kind of thing happens to you too frequently relcelestia, it's because you take such awesome photos.  ;)

http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/image-text.html Here is the policy.
http://ocs.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ContactCS&domain=Help&query=How%20do%20I%20report%20a%20listing%20violation?&from=1459877 This should be the report page.
I'm not really on here anymore. Email me if you need my for something.

Sorry this has happened to you.  Ebay will remove it, they don't mess around when it comes to image and text theft.
 
I actually had to add the link to the rules about it to my listings because it seemed like it was happening every other day to me.  They either used my pictures or copied my template word for word to their listing.
 
But I am also curious who the seller is because the last time I reported someone it was for stealing one of my accessory photos.

I've had people lift text from my auctions before (sizable chunks), and eBay was really quick about shutting down those auctions for plagiarism when I reported it using the link to do so attached to that auction.

Glad to hear you reported it :hug:  its so annoying when someone steals your pics or text. I've had it happen to me too    :throw: 
Thankfully Ebay will normally remove the listing very quickly once you've reported the item ;)

I am just curious are any of her other accessory pictures yours?
