I received a canned response stating the the takedown notice was sent because they were not using officially approved images in their webstore

So they sent a DMCA takedown because the webstore was not using their product photos?

How can not using a photo be a copyright violation?

No, they claim that when using a photo, the photo must be an officially approved photo, i.e. you are not allowed to use your own photos. This claim is still preposterous and clearly goes against fair use, be it copyright or trademark.
