We know it is easy to just copy and paste images or text from our site, but copyright law restricts your use of copyrighted material to "fair use" conditions such as product reviews, parody, news reports and academic lessons.

What to Copy
You must not mimic the general appearance of our site, such as the brown title bars. Otherwise, people will think you have an official connection to our site.

This is necessary so other people don’t think it’s OK to just copy our work without permission.
We may withdraw permission at any time, for any reason. If we do that, you may continue to use the text or images in auctions that are currently running, but you won’t be able to use it for any new auctions.
