Bills and an eBay question

January 24th, 2012 at 02:01 pm

Yesterday I paid a dentist bill -- $72. It was for a December visit, so I couldn't use the FSA, which is done for 2011. I charged it to my new Citi card, to help get the spending up to $2000.

My water bill came as well -- $27. And I sent my monthly rental to the antique mall - $84. I know I have sold something -- my BFF reported to me that a toy tractor was gone -- so I'll pick up a check next time I get down there.

I sold two books yesterday on It tickles me; every time I put new books online, I get a sale or two. The old ones just stay there. Guess they're not hot items. Anyway, these two books both came to me free, so it will be pure profit. Each is less than $2, but, hey, I'm happy with anything.

I attempted to put an item for sale on eBay, but didn't have a picture. So I guess I'll have to take a picture and get it on my computer. Does anyone know if it's illegal to use a picture that is already posted on line? There are already so many pictures of the same thing, and they are clearly sometimes the same picture.

    As a buyer, I would want an a picture of your actual item that you are selling. If it is a book, cd or dvd pictures can be posted from ebay's stock photos. It's part of the listing option.

    Likely you could use the photo you are referring to, but I'm not entirely sure on the legality.

    Yes - I often used other photos. It's fine. IT sure beats "no photo."

    I've done it--especially on books. Other items--not so sure.

    Apparently it isn't legal to use photos that are already online without getting permission from the person posting the photo. I've tried it and got warnings from Ebay stating "unlawful copy of copyrighted image". Ebay strongly recommends the seller taking actual photos of the item(s).
