Looks like I have a copycat auction going on!!
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...ssPageName=WDVW

What should I do about that? Should I report it? Is it close enough to get pulled as a copycat auction?? Should I put something in my title or subtitle or description about mine being the original?

I don't think ebay will pull it because it isn't an exact copy, just copied my idea. I sent the jackass who posted it an email, and (s)he?? told me to "get a life" and suck her? Classy, huh?

So, what should I do? Should I put a subtitle in mine, or revise the description to say something about mine being the original??

Unfortunately there will always be people out there without an ounce of creativity who copy a good auction when they see it. It doesn't hurt to try and report it. I recently reported a copy cat auction myself. I don't care if someone copies my idea. No biggie. But this person plagiarized nearly my whole auction WORD FOR WORD. @@
