Unfortunate usage - many images of food, objects, people, graphics, etc

I came across one of my images being used in two of this eBay users items. http://stores.ebay.com/BiggyGraphics

They have since been removed and there is nothing much else I can do about the sales that were made using said image. However, there are so many other images being used and I'd hate to just let this go.

I have no doubt in my mind that the user purchased my image. However, a compliance coordinator from another agency informed me it was likely an incorrect usage and they had not likely purchased the correct license for what they are selling.

I wanted to share to see if anyone else is being infringed upon. I cannot confirm that my image was purchased from DT or one of the other sites I am selling at. Since so many of us do the same, I thought this a good forum to post in. If you happen to find your image in use and think the correct license was not purchased, you can file a report here: http://pages.ebay.com/help/tp/vero-rights-owner.html

No problem. I am in contact with them now regarding my image. I now know it wasn't purchased via DT but still worth a look if you sell elsewhere. I don't want to name the agency it was purchased from but I am in contact with them regarding correct licensing. If I hear anything else that may be of use, I will pass it along.
