Does anyone know how to report an AS account for selling entirely stolen content when the reporting person is NOT the copyright holder?
Quite a few have now appeared on the FB group, as usual from Pakistan using videos stolen from iStock Exclusive and others.  10s and in one case, 100s of videos.
How do you go about reporting this account?  DMCA isnt going to work as you're required to be the original copyright holder.

SS deal with it via their infringement email but how do you do this on AS?

I saw that in the FB group too. Someone bragging about their AS sales and they posted a screenshot of their bestseller which shows an iStock exclusive video.

Something you can do - is find the original copyright owners - and send them a message - saying 'hey, did you know your content is stolen? here, here and here - send an e-mail to [email protected], tell them its your content that is stolen, and request that they take the content down'...
