Here is another example I dealt with today, after the seller received a takedown notice from Etsy, following my DMCA report:

Seller: Hello,
We just received your copyright complain regarding your photo and we do ave the license for it. We licensed your photo via DepositPhoto and here is the information
Photography ID: xxxxxxxx
License ID: yyyyyyy
Please let us know if you need any information and we are looking forward to resolve this issue.

Me: Please let me know the type of license you purchased and the date of the purchase
Seller: I dont know how to look at it, I bought in yyyy.
This is how I saved the file. From DepositPhotos.
Date: mmm dd, yyyy
Photography ID: xxxxxxx
License ID: yyyyyyyy

Me: I can see this photo being purchased 3 times on mm dd, yyyy.
However, none of these licenses is an extended license.
To resell prints, posters, etc, you need to purchase an EXTENDED license.
For more details check this license comparison:

Seller: We do have adobe stock images can you please send us the direct link for adobe or we can license it directly from you for a lower price

15 minutes after I sent him the link, I was able to see his Extended license purchase from AS.

It's sad, but true. Nobody reads any license terms in this day and age.

Yes, probably it was an honest mistake.

But despite the point raised by the OP, and the popularity of similar "poor-me-it's-not-my-fault" or "terrible-greedy-American-capitalism" marxist posts in this thread ::), no government, and no additional laws were required to solve this dispute.
Just do it, take action, instead of sitting on your hands complaining.  :P

Did you send the DMCA report to Etsy or directly to the Seller ?

Hello Zero Talent,

I personally don't have to complain or take action as I am not affected in this case.

But the factual situation is this:
If you discover portfolios on shutterstock that contain stolen images, you can contact [email protected]
The result is that the images that are used without permission are deleted. That's it. I have not heard of a single case where the rightful contributor of the images was compensated. In my view, if the stolen image was downloaded 100 times, the rightful contributor is entitled to the money for those 100 downloads.

In my view, this is also the case with Etsy, FineArtAmerica, Art and whatever other platforms are called. All agencies simply keep the money for themselves, although it was acquired illegally. That's what annoys me the most about it personally.

If you get caught for speeding, you can't say you didn't see the speed limit signs. You will be punished in any case.
In my view, the same must apply to disregarding license conditions. These are the legal foundations of the business.

I used Etsy's form: https://www.etsy.com/legal/ip/report

You can add multiple listing in one report.
