Someone noticed this and pointed to the portfolio. Pretty bold and maybe you will find something of yours there? Claim is these are all stolen images? 300 of them.

Wow, they dealt with that quickly compared to Shutterstock:

Yes they did, but I'll remind everyone:

If SS acts fast and closes down a potential offending portfolio, they are too fast and didn't investigate. They didn't notify by mail. They only gave one warning for repeat submission of rejects, or using stock elements from software...

If SS doesn't close down and account fast, because someone emails them... they are dragging their feet.

Doesn't matter what SS does, someone is going to be offended or complain.

Now the FT case was so obvious, I should have taken a screen shot. MrNoName yeah right, wasn't that some kind of sign? I wonder how long he was selling other people's work from his collection of 300 illustrations. Do they ask for the money back and give it to the rightful artists. (nope because the logistics are impossible) I didn't find it, someone on SS did. Nice work blinkblink whoever you are.

This isn't just SS or FT but some places seem to find duplicates and similars when they aren't frauds and are coming from the real artist. Why can't DT, for example, find the creeps and thieves when they start uploading stolen work?

How many other sites does MrNoName have this same collection of 300 stolen images? He could be selling on the top ten and no one would notice unless a member does a search and reports it. Sad!
