My image which is an image of my trophy cup sitting in my basement and has been online since June:

Found this image which is an illustration on DT:

Is the second image a theft or copyright violation?  Should I contact support?

Looks like the guy owns the same trophy. The light reflections are different, I don't think he traced yours.

Look at the area that connects the square base to the metal part of the trophy. Yours has a leaf, the other one doesn't. More importantly yours gets out right there, whereas the other one is round. It looks to me that they used a similar, but not the same trophy as the one in your photo.

Unless you designed and built the trophy I'd sat you're SOL. It's neither theft nor copyright violation IMO.

Would not be surprised if someone holds a copyright on the trophy design though.  Maybe both are violations!

looking at the image ids it seems that the second one is older, so...
