Some other shop is using my photos

What can I do about this? I have my store logo watermark on the images in question and they are still readable. I'm a supply shop and we sell some of the same items. She cropped in on the images I TOOK. Should I report this to Etsy or go further with it if she doesn't take the photos down?

Send her a cease and desist right away and then file a DMCA notice with Etsy to have them removed if she does not.
Ug so annoying when people do this! Lazy sellers! I work another retail job and some other boutique took the photos we took as well for their own site!

Lazy business owners don't go far, but you should definitely still send a message and everything like Tracy said!

By the way adorable charms and findings! I'll be looking towards your shop for future purchases :)
How lazy can some people be..? I have never had that happen however there is someone here who is using a photo of my dog taken off google and is using it as thier avatar....I don't care because she is a cutie and she pops up when I least expect it.
Nice shop :)
Someone has stolen both my photos and shop listing, and my pdf sewing pattern from my Etsy shop and they are selling it on DaWanda. I have notified that site but they have not acted on it yet. Is there any way for Etsy to protect our photos and listings against this?
Thanks for all the feedback! I figured I wasn't the only one and my shop is only a little over a year old so I'm still a newbie I guess. I will definitely take the advice here...thanks so so so much you guys!
