8.3. How do I protect my images from being copied?

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to stop images from being stolen by someone, especially since eBay doesn't allow us to use our previous utility that utilized javascript. There is no 100% effective way to prevent image theft on the web. A determined and computer-savvy image thief can either view your source code to grab the image from the URL, or just do a screen shot!

If someone is directly hot-linking to one of your images hosted at SSB, you may use the "Image Block" utility that we offer here:

Navigate to Images > Utilities > Image Block.

Enter the offending listing number from eBay. Select whether you want to replace the image with "STOLEN IMAGE" or simply a broken image link. Then click on the Update Block button.
