Check and see if your images are being sold and or given away for free on this site. Mine is on the index page "Ghost House" it was stolen from my listings on ebay. (My member ID on ebay is "Lcjtripod"). I have tried to get the site to delete it and the person posting it. No luck, no replies to me at all. On my ebay listings the title of this image is "Haunted House"

I have found many stock photos on their site like Penguins, etc that i know belong to folks on MSG.

Check for yours and if you can close them down .... bless you!

This site is much like ebay. I tried putting in several of the titles of my photos, and I got nothing. I'm not sure how we can search for our photos, since I don't see a stock photos section. Do you have a link directly to the stock photo section? I couldn't find that either.

Every time anyone lists the urls of the thieves in these threads, they are just contributing to more traffic going to their site and helping them out. If you want to list the url, maybe everyone can type it www dot listia dot com or something like that.

Search for "Free Photos" The thieves give the stolen images new names.

Good luck!

I searched for free photos and got a listing of items - books, physical goods - that didn't seem to have any stolen microstock images on them. I tried changing the categories to "Other stuff" and "Arts and crafts" and that didn't improve things.

If you have some specific suggestion for how to search to find images sold as prints or whatever made you say "by the thousand" perhaps you could help us out by saying.

I went back and checked again and the woman that was giving away my photo ("Ghost House Photo") is no longer on the site. I guess someone got her kicked off. BUT my image remains on the home page. That gal had hundreds if not thousands of images for free. To earn site credits or whatever.

Some photographers are able to contact the ISP and get them to do something about stolen images. I do not know how to do it. I emailed "customer service" many times and never got a single response out of them.

Oh well I guess it is true that every image on the web WILL be stolen many times over.

Any suggestions?
