   "Good artists copy, great artists steal". Pablo Picasso....  As one of the great artist to live might say, get       over it. Everone copies , everthing has been done..Just do more...Be great and make more art.

Stock is not art

And contributors are "artists" as much as masons, carpenters or house painters  :P

Plagiarism is very common in microstock when you get a million images a week.

If you do not want to deal in such things then better try macrostock or direct selling.

do you think that asking some justice directly to the agency wouldn't be the right thing to do?

By the time this post started and everyone has bitched and moaned about having their images copied I have shot 100 images. Just shoot and make new images and leave everyone on in your dust.

Just imagine how many more you could shoot if you stopped posting to threads you care nothing about.

Happens often.  Here's an example from my portfolio.

I created this in May of 2016:
https://www.pond5.com/stock-footage/61523334/super-popular-social-video-counter-counts-1-billion-views.html?ref=odesigns

After it started selling, I saw copycats like this:
https://www.pond5.com/stock-footage/73031793/beautiful-3d-animation-close-video-counter-quickly-increasin.html?ref=odesigns

So blatant.  When I complained, the agency said unless they take my actual file and re-upload it, not much can be done about it.

The only consolation I have is the fact that my file, for the time being, has a higher placement in search results.
It's amazing. A writer without conscience.
Such copies should be criticized.

How would that stop someone copying your image and selling it on micro? (unless you were only direct selling prints offline and the copycats couldn't see your images?)

Exactly!  and copying an idea and executeit your own way is allowed!...problem is that the editors shouldnt accept blatant copies of ideas and this is one of the reasons why micro-stock is in such a mess!.....I bet if you removed all copies etc some 60% of images would go straigt into the bin!

I bet if I reviewed all of the folks on this form site most of your images have been done before. There is just X amount of ways you can take a pic of a baked potato. Just keep taking pics and make them better than the other baked potato's. "You can do it"....SNL quote.
