Stolen Goods on Online Auction Web Sites - What to Do About Illegal Sales

NEW! Learn how to start your own eBay Business with the Moms Talk Biz Guide to Making Money with eBay.

Larger the online marketplace, there will be more trafficking of stolen goods online. If there is a huge market place like eBay then at times, it is very tough to keep a track of what all is selling there. There are thousands of sellers, millions of buyers and then there are live auctions. It is almost like looking for a hairpin in a haystack. Hence, there is a high probability of people selling stolen goods or those that are not in accord with the eBay guidelines. Although eBay does a great job at controlling such activities, but it is not always enough. Then at times, people have come across stuff that is illegal. There are products that can still be downloaded although it is against law.

How to Stop the Menace of Illegal Stuff

There are incidents as Allen got two mails in his mailbox from eBay detailing the sale of some e-books. Although he was suspicious, he still went ahead and paid a price to download the e-books. To his horror he found that the e-books were his own and the copy he paid a price for were being illegally sold. Although Allen had the auction shut down immediately but then the damage had been done. The important thing is that more than anything else, Allen is never going to get profit for the sales of these illegal versions.

Can these illegal sales procedures be stopped? Is there anything that we can do to minimize this condition? There are a few ways of protecting intellectual property and protecting your product. You need to start with setting up automated search on major online auction services. This will ensure that whenever an online auction takes place with your name on a product or your product itself, then you will get to know about the details of the auction. There is also the facility of having them emailed to you. In such an auction if you come to know about someone illegally selling your product or intellectual property, then it is advised to politely ask him or her to stop the sale. If your advice is not adhered to then you can ask the website to takeoff the auction with immediate effect.

One such program that can help you is eBay’s own VERO program. Vero enables you to fax a form or send an email to them to stop the auction. It is important that you compare the customer service enquiries accumulated on your database. If a customer has an enquiry about your product but has not bought it from you it definitely calls for raising the alarm. Moreover, if you are thinking that you cannot catch the thief, then you are wrong. All transactions can be seen through the credit card processor.
