That said, Ebay might put the brakes on, although they seem less than vigilant in pouncing on obvious offenders of similar ilk on Ebay Australia.
eBay will definitely cancel the auction if they are asked, and almost certainly won't if they're not specifically asked.

A while ago I caught someone ripping off one of my listings, I reported it, eBay promptly removed it. I then realised that all their listings were ripped, so I reported the others as well. eBay refused to remove them unless they were notified by the copyright holder, not just a third party.

Which I find interesting, because if a copyright holder was to sue them for publishing copyrighted content, their defense would be that they didn't know and can't possibly police the site. Which is fair in general, but once the infringement has been pointed out to them they can't claim ignorance, and are willfully publishing copyrighted content.

Can't speak for other Ebay countries, but suspect it's the same globally.
Yeah, there are slight policy variations between each division but in general one countries eBay is the same as anothers.

Most major companies are in the eBay Vero program. They are their own judge and jury....they just notify eBay of infringments of copyright, and the listings are pulled instantly. eBay will not negotiate, and don't even check (I've often heard, from the inside). They trust major companies.

So it's different from one of us complaining, where there is an investigation. There is a presumption of guilt if you are accused by a Vero member.
