Original Post

someone is using the photos that i took of my items ... it is general item like my wires that i am selling but it is still the photo that i took myself.

the other photos like product shots i get from my suppliers and i can use it with their permission because i am an authorized reseller of their products ... like the beadalon items and tornado crimp beads and snapeez jump rings etc.

it is not cool to just grab photos without asking right?!

No, you can't use them without permission.

Correct. If you think someone is using your photos without your permission, you could contact them and ask them to remove the photos. If you are still having trouble, you can contact sarah@etsy.com to take a look at the pics on Etsy.
