Perhaps when the creator of an auction item adds a picture, they can type
the URL of an image, instead of uploading one from their machine, eBay would
then be making the request.  Not sure.

I can't help you with that, good luck.

I don't think you've thought this through.  If a user can see your images
when browsing your website, they can "steal" them.  For example, what's
stopping them from saving the pictures from your website and uploading them
to eBay that way?  Suppose you found a fool-proof way of preventing the
"Save Picture As...", do you think you could stop a screen capture?

You could always sue for breach of copyright, but you might need to
demonstrate you're out of pocket if you're also after damages.

Can't you mark your images, and treat it as a rather fortunate marketing
