I opted out of the Dollar Photo Club over a year ago, but I've just noticed that my entire portfolio, including recent uploads, is available there.

I've checked my preferences and they are still set at "opt out".  I've sent them a message asking why this is, but it might be worth others checking to make sure their images aren't also showing on there.

My acct set as opt out, but yet my entire port shows up in DPC as well.  I wonder what they will claim now??

Have you had sales reported from that?

Same here  >:( - Have sent e-mail to fotolia. Thank you for the heads up!

Mine's there as well. Thanks for the notice. Contacted Fotolia.
As they pay higher royalties for subs when opted into DPC, I think they must retro-actively adjust subs earning for the time our portfolios were (involuntarily) on DPC.
I asked them to do so, let's see what the reply is...

Same here! Images uploaded to Fotolia last week are showing up On DPC, even though I opted out over a year ago. I contacted them asking if I should delete my portfolio until it is corrected.

Thanks Ruth for the information. I checked in DPC and to my dismay, my images are there. I have sent a mail to support asking them to remove them as in FT preferences, DPC is still showing correctly as opted out (OFF).

Brought up the problem on the Fotolia Forum. Maybe we can get a buzz going.

Mine are on there also, my settings have also been set to off for over a year.

Wow

Surely this is a serious legal violation? Breach of copyright springs to mind (equivalent to unauthorised use by a buyer). I can't say it surprises me much, though.

Same here and my partner's portfolio is there also.
Looks like they are mirroring the whole Fotolia portfolio again.

You might be able to send a message by starting a class action.

I despise Fotolia so much that I might well contribute, even though I couldn't be party to any proceedings, since they lost my portfolio years ago.

I found my files on DPC as well (the newer ones, I believe) and if any file has been sold as part of DPC I'm willing to sue their asses off for breach of contract and copuright infringement.

This is outrageous! How dare they, those *insult removed*.

Take a screen shot of your settings on their site.

Either this has been done deliberately, in which case I'll close my account immediately, or this has been a very sad mistake on their part, in which case I cannot trust them handling my images with care ever again.
