I found a still from my stock footage used on this LinkedIn slide site
The "Keys to Success" that Angela Lee Duckworth or Hubert Koh (unsure who is responsible for the slideshow) must have low to no ethics attached to them.

LinkedIn have a copyright violation link at the bottom of the page but failed to do anything about it. I have no idea if the other images were stolen too.

Does anybody know if Pixsy do stills from videos?

I don't know about the stills from videos but I do know Pixsy is not much use with LinkedIn takedowns.  I had an image on sale in Alamy used in several places on LinkedIn and this was picked up by Pixsy which was very useful.  However, a Pixsy case requires confirmation from the agency that no licence has been sold and that you remove the image from sale which may be too much of a sacrifice just for a LinkedIn use. 

I took it up with Alamy who said they were unable to act with social media sites (no explanation why) but they were helpful in getting payment from a large media group who had also used the image.  I completed the LinkedIn copyright violation form myself and promptly received a reply saying they would deal with it under their publishing rules.  Nothing happened and the images are still used in LinkedIn.

I read her presentation and it gave me cancer.

She spent 30k$ on courses. Lol. Do people still fall for this?

Don't worry man, it's punishment enough for her that she's... well, her.

Key to success: steal from people.

67 Golden Rules to be successful in life and business? I find unethical people are best at selling this kind of BS, but worse is that others believe them. Like people who write books on microstock photography as well as put on workshops, promising success. As long as you pay them.

But golden rules, stealing photos for their program and success. That's perfect for true believers who are suckers for these pitches.

Excellent. FWIW, I also sent a DMCA notice to Ducksworth. Her PR people replied that it wasn't part of her presentation and was probably Hubert Koh's.
