    Hi all,

    I am glad to a part of the community now! For my first post I would like to ask the question, how many Items I see on ebay these days are original?
    I feel that there are lots of copys out there, and I notice inparticular for golf products, that if you look closely enough you'll find that a number of different sellers all have the same photo posted in their listed Items? That looks really suspicious?

    Cheers,
    Hellipad08

    '...It is not necessarily the item for sale that is a copy but often the images are.

    If people are selling something they don't have an image for and can't be bothered to photograph their own, they will either 'steal' one from a website or off another seller on eBay. For this reason, you should watermark your original images'.
