  1. This contributor has several of my videos in his portfolio. For example this ... https://www.shutterstock.com/ru/video/clip-1063378141-stack-gold-bars-bullion-precious-metal-investment My original videos were HD and this thief converted them to 4k. This is my original video https://www.shutterstock.com/ru/video/clip-5057402-gold-barsingot-loop-finance-3d-animation Please look, maybe your videos are there too ... And the second question! Why is my video footage visible in search results? My Video Portfolio has been disabled since November 2020... And obviously I will ask the
  2. The same story repeats again and again - portfolios with completely stolen content. I don't know where their "authors" take our footage - most likely, they download it from torrents - this is not a question. The question is - why such portfolios are not immediately deleted from Shutterstock, when it’s absolutely clear that they consist entirely of stolen content? When there are hundreds of complaints from the real authors... For all those complaints, Shutterstock asked us to send a complaint, made according to the certain rules. The authors make those complaints and provide a
  3. Illustrators, check this set. I found my illustration in it, you might find yours too. https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/cupid-icon-set-love-valentines-day-1755009611
  4. Today, thanks to some free time, I searched for my most downloaded photos... And I surprised some of them I found them "downloadable" in versions with very low resolution, for free, ... on many sites ... Now, how does this thing work? is it legal? can I intervene? or do I have to accept that all this is normal and uncontrollable?
  5. Regarding U.S.A.-based contributors, was wondering how many of you register your images with the U.S. Copyright Office/Library of Congress. I'm asking in light of all of the theft that has been detected of late. If you do not register your images, is it something you simply opt not to do, or something you have considered and just have not done yet? If a stolen image is used in a product campaign or packaging, most photographers would opt to sue. As it stands, the law favors those whose images were registered at the time of the infringement, or within three months of first publication.
  6. Hello, illustrators. Etsy Problem again. Some people resell vector files (EPS etc) from microstocks. I already found several of my vector images. Take a look at those Etsy shops, maybe your vector illustrations are also there. https://www.etsy.com/shop/6DogArts?ref=l2-shopheader-name https://www.etsy.com/shop/DigitalPoliArt?ref=l2-shopheader-name https://www.etsy.com/shop/BKAWorkshop?ref=l2-shopheader-name https://www.etsy.com/shop/ALEXANDRARTES?ref=l2-shopheader-name None of microstocks' licenses allows to resell files, it's infringement. Let's find
  7. I just watched this video on youtube, it is an interesting story of a stolen photo , it was used as a commercial image, a lots a prints and followed by an expencive lawsuit.
  8. Thought I would use google image search to see where some of my images were used, as others have suggested and found https://avopix.com/search/premium-photos/.../popular are offering my images and other shutterstock images for free
  9. I was somewhat surprised when a photo I know well from Wikipedia/US Airforce (and on SO MANY wallpaper websites) etc just turned up on Shutterstock for sale... Orignal at Wikipedia... https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockwell_B-1B_Lancer#/media/File:B-1B.jpg His photo: https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/fighter-aircraft-715330369?src=LsM4R2yBJEt3kIIxjT1YuQ-1-18 The account is full of photos that are definitely not his... especially the aircraft ones. They all from Wallpaper websites... As well as these photos not being his, why were they accepted as non-editorial? I have g
  10. Hi all, I want to hear your opinion. This is my photo in SS:https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/yellow-drop-resin-on-tree-cherry-401133304 Is this a stolen photo?: http://www.jituwang.com/tuku/201609/677908.html
  11. Today, by mistake, I found one of my photos stolen by a contributor here. Check it because maybe you are in the same situation Original photo which belongs to me:
  12. I found two of my images at Colorbox, in a portfolio under the name of Sunny Sergio. I think he is the same moron that did the same thing at Canstock about 6 months ago. Here is the link to my forum post from the last incident. http://forums.submit.shutterstock.com/topic/88355-is-this-guy-stealing-your-work-too/?hl=stolen It appears that all of the images in Sunny Sergio's port are stolen. Let's all work to get him shut down. I have contacted Shuterstock infringement, but if they get a lot more complaints for specific images they may take action faster. http://forums.submit
  13. Hi everyone, I'm sure this happens a thousand +1 times a day, but I couldn't just let this one pass without confronting the scoundrel and raising the issue here. I came across some guy on twitter blatantly asking for help on removing the watermark from an SS image. I replied to the tweet and copied it as a DM to SS, but I doubt any action will be taken. He even had the nerve to say how he'd done it! Here's the tweet if anyone else wants to add their comments too. https://twitter.com/89o/status/748753156486553600 Best wishes, Jennie
  14. Hi This guy stole some of my vector images, flipped them around, combined them into one vector and then gave it away for free on the site: http://www.vecteezy.com/members/zhaolifang Their admin removed the infringing image, but left his/her over 3000 images still on the site. It is a Shutterstock partner site where you can buy (as alternative to the free images) Shutterstock images. Much help if they are already given it away for free. Would advise Vector creators to visit his portfolio and check it.
  15. I found out that this website http://www.gfxxtra.com/ sold images from my portfolio. I already wrote to support but i dont know when i get the reply. Or what should i do with that? You all should check this site, there are many stolen vectors i think.. my was only vector illustrations. I find it so I was looking my vectors through the Google images. thank for help.
  16. Looking at another stock site, I found 2 of my images being sold by this guy. http://www.canstockphoto.com/stock-image-portfolio/serka#artist:serka He uses the exact same key words and description as I used. Check his portfolio to see how many of your images he has stolen. It's time to go after him. Let us know if any of your images are here.
  17. Dear Contributors, I was searching for one of my popular images through the google's new image search option. I came across 4-designer.com where my images was posted. I clicked on download for my image and I GOT IT.. for free, and high resolution... I wanted to let everyone know, so that if you are a victim as well, you may want to contact the website admin... Email address to contact is at the bottom of each page.. They mention that they will handle any complaints/copyright infringement, first time you contact... I've sent a cease and desist email... Hopefully, it will
