Ebay, a place to buy original art?

Recently I discovered an "artist"..? in the U.K. selling copies of my paintings for hundreds of pounds on Ebay and whilst it was a shock to discover this fraudulent behavior, its made me think about Ebay as a vehicle for people to access art especially now that bricks and mortar galleries no longer hold the monopoly on art they once did.  Fine art galleries were once necessary for most creative artists, being the most reliable way to make art accessible to the public, but the cost of that service to an artist could be anything up to 60% of sales...
