hello everyone,

I found one of my images on following website and successfully downloaded it for free: newbielink:https://pngtree.com [nonactive]

Im not aware that it is in line with licensing terms. domain of this website is registered in china.

I found there picture at least of one other shutterstock contributor:
newbielink:https://pngtree.com/back/down?id=MzE2NjQ3&type=1 [nonactive]
newbielink:https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/fantasy-tree-house-forest-166606811?src=3Oxgv9z0T_zQlIZT4X5auw-1-17 [nonactive]

Is this website legit. Do you think I should report it somewhere?

Hi, if anyone is interested I have update.

after I contacted them they deleted content from website and blocked user who uploaded my work. also they offered me to become contributor on their platform  :)

this is their answer:

"Hi, Dear designer
We are glad to receive your email about report the suspected artworks. Now we have deleted it and we want to ensure one thing, Are you the artworks' original author? If yes, we are glad to invite you to be our contributor, because this is good for protecting your own copyrights. Our platform is the third party platform, we can not confirm which artworks are faked by people own. If your artworks have 1 thousand downloads then we will give you $50 salary. And if you found someone fakes your artworks then we can calculate this artwork downloads number to your own account. Make sure the salary of your artworks will not give it to others.

1 thousand downloads then they will give you $50, what a stinky deal, you get 5 cents a download instead of the worst sites where you will get 25 cents SS, 28 cents IS, 33 cents FT. or more. 200 downloads gets you more than that $50 anywhere else.

yes, actually when I clicked the link on the webpage they offer only 15 usd for 1000 downloads.

Which is worse than $50. 1.5c per download? If that's true we're at the bottom.
