This one was mentioned a while ago - its theft.

The images were just blurred previews off stock sites, some you could recover the original watermark.

Complaints were made several months ago.

I have not found this topic. And I'm interested in discussing how successful the thief's business is. Maybe I should blur my photos.

Years ago, and I'm not claiming I have hundreds, but I did work up a project of what I thought would make good "Blurred Backgrounds" from my own images.

If I do the 44 Blurred and Backgrounds it's 4 DLS, if I only do Blurred Backgrounds 1 for 33c

If you write to compliance you will get this: (bold is mine)
