Don't let anyone copy your auctions to sell fake bags!

  1. here is HTMl that you can copy into your autions to stop anyone from stealing your pictures/description in order to sell a fake bag

    In the description box click on HTML paste this in at the top after you have finished doing your description, if you go back to the standard description box you will have to return to the HTMl & enter this again as it seems to disappear. It completely disables the right click/copy function

    Hope this is helpful:

    <td><script language=JavaScript>

    //Disable right click script III- By Renigade (
    //For full source code, visit Dynamic Drive DHTML(dynamic html) & JavaScript code library

    var message="";
    function clickIE() {if (document.all) {(message);return false;}}
    function clickNS(e) {if
    (document.layers||(document.getElementById&&!document.all)) {
    if (e.which==2||e.which==3) {(message);return false;}}}
    if (document.layers)

    document.oncontextmenu=new Function("return false")
    // -->

  2. Hello, thanks a lot for your information :smile: During this time, I always put my poupette beside my bag when I take pic to sell it as I'm affraid of stolen pic case and to be honestly, I'm not too familiar with photoshop and it takes a long time to loading pic if I use photoshop onto the pic but now, I know we can do this steps :smile: Thanks
  3. Great info, thanks :flowers: I was going to do a search on code, you saved me a ton of time :yes:
  4. Welcome everyone :smile:
  5. Slightly off topic, but it involves using someone else's pictures...

    One of my buyers emailed me to ask if she could use my pictures to re-sell something she bought from me. (An article of clothing that she felt didn't suit her, as she had hoped.) She was such a nice buyer with such excellent feedback, that I told her she had my permission... just make sure it was allowed by eBay. Is that allowed?
  6. Hi, I ever saw someone use pic from L-T or authentic_lvlady as they bought from L-T or lvlady but think to re-sell it. I think it's ok as long as your buyers get your permitted and state in their auction that they bought it from you before ( the reason they use your pics )
  7. Thanks for this! I now just use an image editor to write my eBay name onto my pics, because one time I had someone steal pics of a Bbag I was selling!!!

    Luckily another Ebay member contacted me and told me, but it happens a lot!! Use the HTML code girls!
  8. That will work, but there are ways around it. An auction just ended for a Chanel flap-bag using pictures from our website. . . stolen pictures! We contacted eBay, who 2 days later invited us to join their VeRO program (that helps a lot! LOL) and we contacted the seller who said she was sorry but our pics were better than her's. Maybe because our pics were of a real bag and her's is fake? We don't know. There is currently a Chanel on eBay using the descriptions, word for word, from our website site. Really, there is little one can do. =(
  9. This is great - thank you
  10. Good to know thanks!
  11. Good tip BagAngel! Unfortunately there are ways around it, but it's a good deterrent. Also, watermark your pictures with your username!
  12. great tip but i as a buyer is pissed whenever sellers use this kind of protection especially when im browsing since i cant click the back button
  13. yes, allowing people to use your photos if you give permission is fine. it's when they DON'T ask your permission that ebay cries foul. if your pics are used without your permission you can report them for stealing them (and this stands for your description too but they're way pickier about that- if someone changes just about anything they won't consider it stealing) and their listing can be removed.

    i just had someone who bought something from me and used my pics and desc without telling me (she even used a bit of my html) so i had to tell her how that works.

    i don't do anything specific to stop people from stealing my pics- i don't watermark or disable right click- but my pictures are pretty branded to me (read- very easy to tell their mine) plus i look at the brands i sell all the time so if i don't catch someone stealing one of my friends or customers usually does...
  14. Thanks for this. I do think though that a lot of the time images are used innocently. I heard a colleague at work telling her friend who wanted to list something at lunchtime not to bother to wait until she got home to take photos as she could easily find some good images in other auctions to use. She is not a bad, mean or devious person, she just thought it was the same thing as searching google images when she puts together cards, messages etc. Not an excuse for the bad guys, but I do try to remember that most people out there are good, if sometimes misguided otherwise I'd go mad and never enter EBay again!
  15. girlie, i owe you a beer for this one!!!!!! great info!!!!!!!
