eBay Photo Policy change

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by BruceF, Aug 16, 2009.

  1. I received this email. My natural instinct was this was just a new urban legend, but it checks out. I found it set to yes on my page (and promptly changed it). And here's eBay's info: http://pages.ebay.com/sell/July2009Update/faq/index.html#2-5

  2. Thank you!!! As an interesting note since I have account sin both US and canada, this option is not available in Canada....
  3. I just changed my status. Thanks for the heads-up!
  4. Wow - thanks for the heads-up!

    I'm in Canada, have never registered with eBay.ca, yet I can't see the Share Photos option either.

    Thank you, Bruce. Extremely well articulated instructions, and most thoughtful of you to post this. I changes preference to "no" in under a minute using your instructions.

    Thank you!!! :m42:
  7. Can't see this on the UK site. Probably only a matter of time.

  8. Interesting.

    Except for the primary product photo, I never upload photos to eBay. I edit listings in HTML and include images hosted from smugmug. I assume such images do not fall into the policy since they're not uploaded to eBay?

    I prefer using hosted images. I don't have to pay eBay extra for them, and I can yank the images at an appropriate time after the listing has ended.
  9. I don't see it that way. The eBay link I posted says (emphasis added):
    I read this as any photo you use in your listing, regardless of where they are hosted. It's just another way for a corporation to get photos for free, IMHO.
  10. I probably never would have realized this without the notice here ...
    Thanks for bringing this to out attention, I changed to no with the easy instructions given even though it's been a while since I sold through ebay.

    Thanks, Mike

    wow thanks, i opted out but did notice that they do credit you with the image
  17. Thanks! I hope that everyone sends a message to eBay letting them know what they think of:

    1. No notification of such a change
    2. The scummy nature of defaulting to "opt-in"
  18. Thanks - just changes my settings easily.

  20. Thanks so much for this. Damn right I don't want my photos used by other folk....among other things it will take down the quality and honesty of eBay listings another notch...not to mention my rights as a photographer.
