Hello, I would like to let you know about a facebook page that is using lots of stolen images from agencies, doing memes and not being willing to take them down with arrogant answers to messages. Facebook doesn't allow to file a copyright infringement on someone else behalf, so whoever's images were stolen should file the infringement request by themeselves, if interested. Here the page:

Hope to be useful

This is exactly where the agencies should act  - and do something for their 60-85% share. But they usually don't.
This kind of sites are very bad for our industry. I already lost 2-3 good models cuz of these stupid meme sites.

That's one of bad consequences of showing large previews.

BTW, why do you want to start 2 threads for the same topic?

It looks like they are equal opportunity thief - I saw watermarks from SS, DT and 123 on only a few images so there are probably many more.  This should definitely be reported to the agencies and I hope they follow up.

Yes I did... but i think it's more effective if the picture's owner report copyright infringements to Facebook so that they can close the page if many photographers report it.

good luck with that. fb has their own fine prints where they too rip off fb ppl
in where they waive their responsiblity of fb using their photos,etc..
you're asking the fox in the hen-house to save your chicken???

I have contacted the Facebook page too.

They answered me:
Noi non utilizziamo queste immagini a scopo di lucro

"We don't make any profit with these images"

Noi e 123RF abbiamo un patto
Possiamo prendere le loro immagini in cambio di pubblicit


"Us and 123RF we have a deal.
We can use their images in compensation of advertising"

Dal momento che abbiamo utilizzato le loro immagini (da un anno a questa parte), le loro entrate sono quasi raddoppiate

"From the moment we begun to use their images (one year ago) their income has almost doubled"

Then he has blocked me.

So he's a liar as well. People like that should suffer the consequences of their actions, so that they grow and become productive and law obedient citizens. I hope they get sued.

For copyright infringement, obviously.  What they are doing would not stand up as parody.  It may be noncommercial for him but it isn't for facebook - the parody exception does not apply.

what did i say about social media??? they become millionaires using other ppl's stuff
and everyone thinks it is so cool that "it's all free"...not realising the fine prints give them
all the "rights" to abuse you.

scavengers all for the roadkill who gladly let their bodies rot
, as the saying goes!

and fb's income???
consider each time you add your personal photos and dirty laundry on fb to share with your "friends'
including your geomap for burglars to know when your house is vacant when you go away on vacation
and all those family photos of your kids, to be tagged by pedophiles,etc..

you are contributing another dollar(s) to his millions...

[in green] Exactly why I don't do the "post everything I am doing" thing.  I have old friends, many professional industry photographers, and some charities members I donate my time to.  So mostly we share photos.  But you are right, one must be pretty careful on FB.  I used it for my advantage in April when my brother passed away from cancer.  A young 56 years old.  I contacted 2-3 FB friends who were my old wrestling teammates.  That connection alone got my brother 200 people at his funeral service.  My old wrestling students, our high school wrestling coaches, and people I haven't see in 35 years.  It was a good send off. 

Anyway, not to go off topic too much, FB is very powerful, good and bad.

I have found an email address to contact Facebook directly.
I don't know if it works, but the mail that I have sent did not turn back (so I can suppose that it has arrived somewhere)

[email protected]

More we will be to report this page more effect it could have.

Facebook have a procedure for reporting infringements. Every time I used it content has been promptly removed.  Just use that. There's no point contacting page owners.

I have reported the page using the "normal" instruments offered by Facebook and their answer was that there was no intellectual property issue on this page
So, then, I have tried directly by email.

Or am I missing something?

Don't try and report the whole page. Find your photo get it full screen, click "Options" at the bottom, click "report photo" from the list check "I think it shouldn't be on facebook" click "something else" check "I think it's an unauthorized use of my intellectual property" follow the instructions (you will need to complete a form). Facebook aren't going to look through the page and work out if there are any issues. Even if it's obvious, as that would be acknowledging some sort of responsibility on their part for checking the content on their site.

Yes this I have understood, but their system allows only to report and infringement concerning a personal image.

There is not the way to report a general violation of the intellectual property, as general behavior of the page owner, and this is not normal.
I understand that Facebook cannot scroll down the page to find issues, but in the case of this page Facebook does not need to check all the page to see if there are issues, because all the page is a violation of the intellectual properties, from the top post.
