    I had my listings removed recently because I was using "copyrighted" content (removed under the "VeRO" systme)

    I have no idea if the party complaining is the actual copyright holder - or just a competitor - but my listings were gone within hours after they went up.

    How would someone have know so quickly (whether legit or not)?
    Is there a way to use Google Alerts to track keyword postings on a specific website only (in this case, ebay)?

    eBay offers a auto 'saved search' function. You can get the results of this search auto emailed to you as frequently as daily. Some REAL VERO owners do this and pro-actively contact ebay with the VERO form.

    HOWEVER, if you believe this was not the real owner, you can fill out a counter notice - it took me two weeks of b*tch*ing n complaining all the way up to the ebay executive officers email addresses to get someone to tell me this. EBAY SUCKS AT SERVICE - but we all know this.

    If you fill out this form, the other party has 10 business days to get an attorney to sue you. If they other paryty doesn't do this, ebay reinstates your auction.

    I had a FALSE FRAUDULENT LIAR put a claim against me and i fille dout the form and got my auction re-instated.

    The sad thing is, if you go fill out a VERO claim against someone selling tennis shoes because you claim you now own the patetn to every shoe made in the world, EBAY doesnt ask quesinos - they dont give a crap - they just remove the auctions.

    VERO is supposed to stand for VERIFIED Right Owner NOT BULLSH*TT*NG Pretending to be a rights owner.

    But ebay doesnt verify anything - u fill out a form and someones auction goes down - that it

    Thanks. I had no idea that existed (im new to ebay in the "selling" aspect). That's probably it.

    Sorry to hear that. I've read 100s of such stories on the net. It kinda turns me off from ebay. The trouble is - after fucking around with SEO, affiliating, emailing, etc for 3 years - the though of just throwing up an auction in front of people who are already in a buying mood (or at least open to the idea) - sounds very fukin easy and very appealing.

    Ebay's blessing (easy traffic) is also it's curse (cutthroat competition)

    Did it list the vero company's name in your email and ask you to email them if you have a problem with the takedown? If yes then its the actual company rep that is after you and not competition. Vero is not fair cause they could remove everyone's listing if they were.

    FIGHT VERO HERE:)

    yeah, it was the company's email address.
    Sucks that they found my ad because it was an awesome listing.
    Most ebay listings are all shitty - this listing used video and sales copy and everything fit for a bonafide sales page. It had infomerical video and shit. Would've made me some serious loot.
