Update Ebay does NOTHING about Bootleggers

Update on Bootleg copies of my art on EBAY

As of the time of this writing 10:30 CST, Nov 19,2011. Mr. Stellar393 continues to sell my art on Ebay. Ebay has done nothing, they said it was under investigation and they did plan on Sanctioning him. The owner of the original( Original was sold on Jan 3, 2008 in an ebay auction the auction ID number and details were supplied to Ebay personally) has contacted both the seller and Ebay along with 23 other (those that I know of), his reaction was to list 4 more "ORIGINALS" and raise the price at that! Here is a sampling of the bootlegger replies:

for last 3 days I had 5 eBay members stating what they own original of this particular painting, so I do not know how to comment this facts, - I do not know who is painter - I am purchasing my art from private collectors and reselling them..

they were mass bought at a flea market and he's a reseller & has a right to sell them.

"I never stated it is MY artwork - I'm reseller. I purchased it on flea market and simply re-selling it. You have no proof what it is not an original from somebody else collection who sold it to me to do reports..

Ebay's response...They issued violations and warnings to several of the people who wrote to them on my behalf saying they personally knew the artist and he was selling bootleg merchandise. They no longer return my calls or emails.

I am so very disappointed that Ebay, whom I have had a sellers account for over 10 yrs would put it's own profit over legal rights.
