They know about it for few days ("We will of course take action right away and check this account, it will be closed if the images are stolen.")

I encourage everyone to check the site. There are a big number of thieves and stolen images. I found couple of mine there and send the site message to investigate.

He has many images which look stolen and a bunch of another ones (maybe with himself as a model) which look soo poor and ludicrous that must be his.

If your stolen images are in different portfolio, do you mind to post a link here?

There is another thread about another thief on CB. It would be good if the admin merge them.

Assuming that the thief has plenty of sales, why go to all that trouble otherwise, is there not a business opportunity to be had here.  Using services like Pixsy to litigate against the agencies that continue to allow known thieves to sell on there site.  Obviously, the thief will get away because of the difficulty in pursuing these matters in certain countries, but the account will be shut down and the agencies will be forced to take more care with the images they accept.  It maybe that the action needs to be taken against the customers, but will that then make them buy from more reputable agencies?  Again location maybe a problem here. Anybody out there take this route already for good or ill, I would be interested in the outcome.

The images are still there! Not sure what the issues they see are, but from where I sit it looks as if they just don't care at all that they are offering works to buyers which they have no authority to license

They removed only the two example images I sent. One of which is by Yuri Arcurs and was part of group of images from the same shoot:

If CB is a serious company they should remove immediately such accounts. Everything is so clear, images with very popular models by very popular photographers. They obviously want to have these nice photos in their collection and don't hurry to delete them. But meanwhile they infringe the copyrights of the authors and every buyer who downloaded some of these images actually don't have a legit license to use them.

CB is simply greedy scumbags. Their actions, or lack thereof, simply show who and what they are.  A revenue machine with zero tolerance for copyright law.
