I know this is supposed to be a forum to talk about purses, but I just wanted to share and vent... I design and sell personalized invites on eBay. And today I noticed that my new designs were being watched. Which is usually weird because they were for different events. So I did a search to see if my competition were watching my listings and sure enough I catch another seller trying to rip off or knock off my design. I emailed her and told her that it was pathetic that she couldnt come up with her own stuff and that she shouldn't knock off my items beacuse I could just as easily do the same to her and steal her business. Her response was as follows: Hello, the design you are inquiring about was a custom design for an existing customer who described in detail what she wanted, and I passed this information on to one of the artists that I work with. While your email took me aback at first, I went and looked at your store, and I do see some similarity between it and your chic bride design. I, do, however, wish to assure you that it was not a copy of yours but a creation of what a customer asked for. You must admit that there are many, many bride in white gown with bouquet designs out there. I am sorry you are upset. I will modify the background if you'd like, as I assume that is what your beef is with, as the rest of the design I could find several of out there. I'm really annoyed because she was inventing someone else to blame and the design in question cannot be knocked off by a description alone. Does anyone else buy her BS?
