Remember this?  Fotolia D-Day (Deactivation Day) - May 1, 2014

It was a 64 page thread.

And something like seven million images removed ... and now apparently back again.

My portfolio has also reappeared on DPC despite being opted out.  I HATE THIS.  Writing Fotolia support now.

I completely removed my port from FT as part of that protest and haven't regretted it.

This latest slap in the face to those who stayed and took FT's word that they would remove your images from DPC if you asked is just more proof of what a sleazy operation FT is.

Can anyone check if there has been a sudden influx of images on DPC recently? Apparently all my files have been (re)mirrored again.

Maybe that is the reason why some saw the views on their images rising? Maybe that was when they started integrating our ports in DPC?

I wish I could say how I really feel but Leaf would ban me.

Smells like a class action lawsuit to me.

Wonder if they beefed up number of images as part of the Adobe deal.

I was hoping Adobe to kill DPC, but look what they are doing instead! To sell our content without permission is a Epic Fail and a crime!
Obviously they won't make any positive changes to FT!
I will deactivate some of my images and stop uploading! The next step will be deleting my portfolio!

I also thought that Adobe will somehow deal with the flippin DPC. Is this their way to deal with it? Unbelievable  >:(

I've sent mail as well.

BTW, is there a way to see "rejected" or something files?

The more I think about it, the more criminal this looks.

If any of our images on DPC have been sold without our consent, but we're opted out of DPC, they would not only need to remove our images, but also pay us an extra amount of royalties that was promised for those who remained opted in.

I'm willing to contribute financially to a class action lawsuit.

Mine are there as well. This is so dissapointing. Do we really need another deactivation shitstorm to make them understand that this is OUR content?

Are they really that desperate for content? There should be enough people who dont care where they upload...

Yes a class action could be a good investment if fotolia has to pay a compensation. We need a fond for class actions.
Investment maybe 100$ per person.
Is the action successfully the compensation will be distributed to the investors.

Amen to that, martha.

OT: click on the little monitor icon on the top line when looking at "my files", that let's you choose to see deleted files.

I can not sign in to the DPC site.

Thanks.  I don't know why they call them "deleted" if they're "refused".  And I have no idea why they are "refused".

Butting in as someone who is not involved, but hates to see this sh*t, does anyone who is involved think it might be worthwhile posting about it on whatever Adobe groups are relevant to buying images - to get the word out that work is being sold at prices artists opted out of?   ...
Or would that draw even more attention to the DPC?
Maybe only on groups/forums/whatever which promote the DPC? They are at best 'hijacked' but more realistically 'stolen' images.
