Exactly, I am holding the auctions. I only want to grant eBay' 
servers the right to grab a picture off my server. I just want to 
prevent someone from grabbing all the graphics off my server. If they 
want to do it one at a time, fine.
Here is the scenario.
I sell on eBay. On my selling page I have my graphic. That graphic 
lives on my server. When eBay creates the page it requests the image. 
Hence using .htaccess I can prevent mass downloads.
Unless i am confused here.
