A call to any vector artists out there. Please could you take the time to look for any of your work in this person's Etsy shop that is full of stolen vectors?

I have sent DMCA take down notices for my work many times only for the shop owner to reply with a fake Counter Notice and relist the items. I don't even know if it counts a strike against them when the send a counter notice.

Etsy dont give s**t and the seller claims to be in Russia so I cant really pursue legal action.

If enough people report them maybe their shop will be shut down.

Their shop:

Etsys reporting form:

If you find anything it is also worth doing a general search of Etsy with keywords plus PNG and SVG as you can add multiple listings to the same form.

It looks like mostly the same old clip art everyone has.

I see a couple of silhouettes that *might* have been traced from one of my photos, I'll have to look closer.

Which ones are yours?

I am anonymous so dont want to say. They have quite a few of my vectors not edited at all (I do both illustrations and photos). Some of it is just clip art, some is actually very good work and is made to look cheap by being stuffed in these huge sets. Zoom in on some of the animal sets and you will see what I mean.

Here's an example as I have just been looking for one for you. Not the best as they have changed the colors on this one but you'll get the idea. In this set:

The eagle second from right first row under the red banner is this one:

Just black (If anyone knows the artist's contact details could they please let the know?)

First row above red banner second from left in the same file

I figured that. I think I've seen that Eagle or hawk a number of times. I wonder if it's a robbers favorite?

Thanks for the link. I found two set of my artworks being stolen by this guy.
Report made to Etsy already :)

Thank you! It is probably worth doing a general search on Etsy when reporting because often there will be multiple people stealing the same piece and you can just add all the listings to the end of the same form.
