First ask the Broker to remove it from Zillow, which he has the ability to do, if in fact it is illegally being advertised there.

Pillow.com does not offer any home listings... the Domain Name is owned by pillows.com and redirects to pacificpillows.com, also owned by pillows.com, formally Pacific Pillows.  All they sell is "pillows", bedding, and home & bath accessories.

They primarily target hotels by offering hotel suite packages.
They also offer a "shop by hotel" to allow retail customers to order similar product to pillows and bedding they liked in some of the hotels and motels they visited.

So, one doesn't need to prevent Realtors from advertising listings on Pillow.com, as none of the Realtors are able to put any ads on Pillow.com and any price.

I would send them a cease and desist email with  bcc back to yourself for falsely advertising my home without permission. Give them 3 business days to comply with removing all advertising. If they don't comply with your request, file a complaint with the FL Board and sue in small claims for damages for $500 per unauthorized advertisement.

Your FSBO is yours to advertise. No agent would allow a private person to post unauthorized advertisements of their listings. As the owner, you have the right to say no too. Unfortunately, some agents have no respect for FSBO's and they overstep the professional line. If you don't defend your rights, you lose them.

Flag hijacked listings so Zillow (not pillow) will remove them.    (Click on "report problem with listing" at the bottom of the home details page).

I have no idea how you can stop unscrupulous Realtors.  Contact their managing brokers and complain, contact the local board of realtors.
