Freepik, please answer my questions.  Why should it be up to us to find the images that are being downloaded thousands of times without the copyright holders consent?  By the time these images are found, the person that originally made that image might of already lost a substantial amount of earnings.  Please tell us how you are going to go through all your images, identify all the ones that are being used without consent and fully compensate the copyright holder.  Then there's the problem with your designers making images that are very similar to other people's work instead of doing their own work.  How do you justify that?  Why would any sensible person here want to collaborate with a site that is doing that?

Im answering you, sharpshot:

We make an exhaustive analysis of the resources created exclusively for us. It isnt your labor, but ours. We do it, but its inevitable that some go unnoticed. This not only happens in Freepik but in all image banks. We are victims of copy in many occasions.

At the moment the the plagiarism is detected, we delete the content immediately. The affected author can contact us ([email protected] or [email protected]). We deeply investigate the case and compensate the author if necessary.

We dont order similar designs, and if there is any plagiarism is because we have been deceived for the designer.

Really? I would think that if this were true you might have five illustrations on your site. There has been enough "facts" laid out here that you could walk from California to Hawaii on them without getting wet. In the remote chance that you are trying to be sincere (as opposed to dodging a problem you really refuse to address) then your systems are horrible.  I hope Shutterstock takes a real hard look at your model and realizes what they are really supporting. NO MATTER how you slice it, whether it's intentional or not, your model breeds copyright violation big time.

Well, now that this thread's been resurrected, I'm still waiting on that compensation for all the images you stole from me, Blanes, and placed on your site. They got thousands of free downloads.

Shutterstock must have sent you a very stern letter...I'm having a hard time finding my stolen work on your site now. Though you're still copying other people, of course.

Not sure why anyone would be interested in working with you. And it's their very first post here. Hmmm. Seems a bit fishy.

READ THIS THREAD. (The title alone should have rung loud warning bells.)

You would have to be mad to be selling the same work on ss and giving it away on another site. Your customers are going to be so angry when they find the same work they paid for for free elsewhere.
