    I wouldnt worry about it,it really sounds like a scammer chancing his arm,theres more and more morons on ebay these days,,3 times in the last couple of months,I sold 99p auctions,no payment, but immediate feedback from them saying "fantastic item,fast delivery,great packaging" etc,all from people with 0-10 feedback,,obviously some sellers give feedback once the item is bought,,these people are hoping Id do the same,so they can build up positive score,the more feedback they have,the more chance they can fool a buyer when the start scamming.Ebay have closed two of these accounts since then.Anyway,Im going off on one there lol ,back to your daughters situation,tell her not to worry and carry on,if the image is hers,and she can prove it,let them get a solicitor to send her a letter..I bet they wont.Its just some dumb dumb trying it on.

    Or maybe your daughter should design him a (copywrited) Penguin, all for him. Maybe with a large penis in the middle of his forehead.

    Just seen your reply to my earlier question. Thanks for taking the time to expain the background.
    As everyone else is saying, this is a scam.
    Although it is an irritation and a worry just because this 'merchant' has selected your daughter
    to have a go at, you've both done your homework and HE is the one who is now on the defensive
    because he knows you've rumbled him. well done to you both.

    Good for her. IF, and it is a 'KIN BIG 'if' they decide to sue, it will have to be through a small claims court and they will have to pay up front for that. You will get the chance then to counter claim. I did it once and won.
    I would really, really doubt that nayhting will come of this......I know it's a worry, but he is just 'sabre rattling'!

    Still, rather than all that crap, I'm glad it's sorted and she's not worrying about it!

    Graeme, well here is the funny story not funny but as in pathetic, gets a email late Sunday night, badly written, as in lower and upper case in the wrong place etc, now like I have taught the children not everyone is litterate so ignores all that. They threaten her with court etc VeRo and everything else, so she replies she sorry and will delete the item. Ok, but then she sitting there thinking and says you know what I didnt copy that one, I designed it, she really good at designing and she studying advertising at Uni, so she a real keen eye. She draws and adapts a lot, not got her talent from me .. Anyway to continue the story, she really annoyed about it and upset, she googles the item, and finds it on Amazon, complete with her watermark on it, so it definately hers. She then emails his representative she thinks back and says if your copywrite then how comes you displaying and selling my design complete with my watermark on on Amazon. She then says to them if you demanding 500 from me and 50p an item then I will do same, as on Amazon he has put designed by and his name. Monday morning gets two mails back, one is that he would have fogotten all about it had she not threatened him! and the other to say he spoke to his solicitor and he taking her to court. He also says he suplied the image which is similar to Amazon. So she asks him for his phone number to discuss rather than them both pay a solicitor, not that she would. He dont reply. She then looks on Amazon and he changed the image. .. Now in her mind if he right why would he change the image. She phones Amazon and explains the situation they want to escalate the situation as they can see he changed it. She says atm I am busy writing an essay for my future do I need to bother with all this, not really. Anyway this morning finds her image again on Ebay, complete with the watermark in his "me" page. She phones Ebay, and apparently he no right to site VeRo there is nothing he can do. VeRo mostly deals with big companies like designers, and if they spot something that is stolen from them they have to follow procedure by going through EBay who then investigates it. The guy on the phone says it doesn't seem legit that he hasn't contacted ebay, he's done it through emails which is the equivalent of our next door neighbor knocking on the door saying we done something outside their door so they're going to sue us.
    The guy on the phone said he's seen it before where people have done this just so that their rivals take items off of Ebay. However he says that if the guy wants to sue us he can, it's outside of Ebay, so they can't control that. But the situation doesn't seem legit to the guy because of the way he's gone about it (not informing the proper people and trying to take care of it personally). Apparently if he did have a case it wouldn't come under copyright anyway, as it's an image under question.
    He said that if anything more comes of it we can contact ebay and report the guy, they would then be able to look into it further and analyze all the information e.g when the items were listed e.t.c but until we actually get a letter through the door he says that there's no point worrying over it or looking into it more.

    So she now happier and gone back to doing her essay which is far more important, proud mum as she got an A in the last one ...

    Thought this would interest some as Graeme asked sorry if any of you are bored
