Copycats are at it Again

I recently had an enquiry re some goldtone Flaming bomb vintage buttons I have, and my customer asked if I had any more or if I could source more for them. So off I went and did a search and found a picture that I knew instanly was mine and was most surprised when I followed the link to find this site http://www.lnbbc.com.cn/vintage-button-cufflinks-flaming-bomb-p-8975.html  not only are they offering my cuff links they have also used my description word for word, but the difference is that they must have a minimum order of 50.
I took the following paragraph straight from their site....  grasp the market!!!! more like Steal, made me Flaming Mad!!!!!

"Our creative team not only have the abilities to grasp the market、the demand of customers 、the design and innovation 、the material and technique ,and hold rich production resources. In addition, we also focus on design and customers’ feelings and develop marketable products according to various sale-channels, to increase the added value for the products and greater Competitiveness and profits for the enterprises."

I am not alone as I have seen many other handmade products on this site and they are blatently copying and reselling our work. I sent them a mail but doubt very much that I will ever get a reply.

Don't you have any recourse regarding copyright? I would be talking to a lawyer but if there isn't much you an do - post this on you tube warning other companies not to sell to them. This is awful.

Not really Mary unless you watermark each picture then it's there for the taking. I am not alone for sure. Maybe I should buy some from them as I don't have any more buttons like these:) Joking of course !!!!
