Default Stolen RP photos being sold on ebay

Came across this link on another forum and so far two of the images on this thief's page have been identified as being on RP:

I'm sure some of you will be able to identify a few of the others.

David's shot comes with FREE shipping, but Russel's shot is the last print of it's kind left!

Thanks for the heads up - makes you wonder if it's that easy to sell your own prints? I suppose RP res is good for 8X12.

selling 1024x-size originals printed at 8x10!!

there's a "report item" button - hope someone is making use of that. I tried, but I do not have an ebay account.

Good luck dealing with eBay. A few years back, there was someone selling tee shirts and mugs with my photos on them. I complained to the appropriate e-mail addresses at eBay and they were never answered. I found them to be completely inept.

File a DMCA complaint on them, by law they HAVE to respond within 24 hours... you get monetary compensation if they dont

Here's a link to everything this seller has listed for 'Trains.' Several images look familiar:

I like the way the seller says "only 1 left", as if he can't crank out a bunch more.

BTW, have any of the photographers actually verified that these prints are unauthorized?

This one gets around! I shot the photo below in Sauraha, Nepal (the gateway to Chitwan National Park) at an internet café-travel agency type of place.


Anyone know who the original photographer is?
