DMCA take down notice. Ebay will likely follow it. By the time the
person has decided if they want to risk taking the matter through the
court the auction will be over.

As for how it would work out in court? With material under the GFDL
their position would be rather hard to defend. No GFDL no excuse for
use they lose the case.

Under CC-BY-SA it boils down to the reasonable to the medium and means
clause which is a rather more defendable position.
