Not too happy about this:

My bike in my kitchen portraited by me!

And then they are promoting for their rubbish counterfeit frames.

At the very least they have the decency to offer free shipping of it back home to you :)

They take pics from my flicker account all the time. It's amazing anyone shops with these sites at all.

I used to have people do that to ebay auctions I had years ago. They would link to my pics... not even take them.

That's when I'd find some really horrible porn pictures and upload them to my FTP server with the same file name as my previous picture. Instantly they'd have that image all over their stuff :)

I had somebody steal entire ebay listings to sell the same product. No matter how many times I reported to ebay all they would do is cancel the stolen listing, but then a few days later a new exact copy would pop up.
I ended up sending the lister an email saying I would launch legal proceedings if they did stop steeling my IP. They stopped soon after that.
(We were both located in Melbourne Australia)

I like the changing of image trick - even better would have just been "all items including displayed images are fake" for the images.

True. But, I was in college... what can I say? :) My choice of action was more entertaining at the time.

I do understand this "concern" if you have a 500 bucks price tag for the Sidi Wire and 70 bucks for a Conti 4000S tire.
