Yeah...I wasn't really too worried about this happening so never considered the need for a watermark. Even now, I'm annoyed but as mentioned by another, what's the harm. It was my scan I had uploaded to photo bucket years ago and have shared on this forum previously.

The guy admitted that he just did searches on google images to look for cool vintage items to make into magnets. I could be flattered I guess.

In my mind, the "free advertising" I'm getting from this is a double edged sword. While it could make the ticket more popular, it could also make it seem more common. Ehhh...I'm not losing sleep over it.

I didn't bother to report through eBay. I just messaged him to get the scoop. He was forthcoming. I asked him to use his own pictures going forward. He didn't respond to that but I don't see the item listed any more.

Perhaps take it a "Imitation is the highest form of flattery", and appreciate someone is jealous of a part of your collection.

Here's kind of a similar thing....in the early days of ebay, pre-PayPal, I used to enclose my "business card" with every check or money order I sent out. I bought something from this Mike Quick guy. When he later bought something from me, he enclosed his business card. Like you, I didn't know how to feel about it.

LOL...You've got to be kidding. He couldn't at least try to change it up a bit?

At least he used his own name.

I would be ticked too and complain. And there's not a thing you can do about it now. But maybe Ebay will take it down.
