I see that on Fiverr there are a lot of sellers that resell stock footage and pictures, that come from "all you can download" accounts, especially of storyblocks, but can come from any stock agency with low subscription plans.
We are all involved because they can access to yours and mine contents too.

I periodically make a search for them and report to the stock agency where they take the videos for the account to be banned and I report to fiver too.

some examples?
go to www.fiverr.com
and search for "videoblocks" , "storyblocks" or "stock footage" or "stock images"

not all are violating the terms because some are selling their own stock videos, but you can easily find the fake ones or contact them to investigate where they get the videos...

please help me to stop this behavior that is taking down our sales!

and beware to give your contents to an "all you can download" collections !

Yes, this is yet another reason why we need far more organisation from our side as contributors. We need to have the power to opt into or out of subs sales at all agencies. We need to get control of our work back again. Within reason, of course. The agencies are still important partners.

fortunately i don't submit to any unlimited subscription plans,and i find pretty obvious what is happening....people pay 20$ for a month subscription download as much as they can then resell it.....that's another reason to stop selling on this unlimited subscription plans that are destroying the entire industry....

This is where most of fiverr money comes from. It's not only photos they allow music, video and templates piracy too. It's also happening on gumroad but on fiverr it's blatant.

Visualab,
they change the AD, because sometimes they get banned,
we just have to monitor Fiverr and report the fraud AD to stock agences and Feverr too

Storiblocks is the most used because of unlimited download, but they can take the content from subscriptions account of Pond5 and Shutterstock too
I've reported them in the past but I don't know if they have investigated it, I just see that these AD changes and reset, so probably someone else is reporting them to Fiverr.

Fiverr checks manually every advertising before publishing for errors and wrong categories, so we need to report them all the resell activities and maybe one day they will be able to stop them before they are published.

to find a resell action just search for some stock keyword or videoblock and read the ADs to understand if the guy is selling its own videos or "millions of videos" or "any video from" that obviously are not of him.

examples:

i find hard for them to resell from subscription plan like ss or pond5 because it would cost to much(you pay per clip/picture)...it's clear that those resellers take the image from unlimited subscription plan like storyblocks envato etcc......
i personally wouldn't want to be in the place of artists that feed those agencies to see my content bought for nothing and resold...
it's pretty clear where those agencies are driving this business to!!!
shame!!

When I see people like this - no link just his text - I can see that fiver doesn't really care of check.

Hi

I have membership on all paid websites. So I'm reselling images and videos here for those who can't afford full packages.

The price per image is $5 and it's fixed. So please don't bargain.

I provide stock images from these following websites:
❥ Shutterstock Creative
❥ Shutterstock Music
❥ Alamy
❥iStockphoto
❥  Depositphotos
❥Dreamstime
❥Bigstockphoto
❥Adobestock
❥123rf


Since 2015! Why don't they shut these people down after multiple violations.

i agree with you...
the only way to avoid is at least not submit to unlimites subscription plan agengy...
the link you quoted it's far from dangerous for us because he has to resell higher than what he payed...other links show people reselling from unlimited subscription and that's could be bad since they can resell for peanuts seen what cost a monthly subs plan at storyblocks or envato...

Fiver sometimes takes these AD down when someone reports to them...

but the agencies have to remove their accounts too and take legal actions or they will make another AD again.

It's important that WE ALL monitor Fiver and report any violations because they resell pictures and videos from every agency, not only storyblocks !
so we all are hit by this !
