I am never polite to them. What I would normally say cant be put on here. I 
do start the ball rolling for a laugh by asking what camera they used to 
take the photo.

Dear Bill:

The responses to your question from various people I feel are most
polite, but, in my opinion, not strong enough. If the source of the
photo used clearly state "not to be used without permission" or words to
that effect, I would suggest: 1. Ebay be informed. 2. An invoice be sent
to those who used the photo. 3. Ask that Ebay institute a policy stating
all photos used if not the property of the user, must carry the
permission of the owner for its use.. 4. Inform the Garden Writers
Association that such as occurred and what is their position on such

This might seem 'strong' but such piracy should/must be stopped. Cheers,
John E. Bryan
