Hi a store on Etsy has been stealing my art I have had to issue over 25 image take downs. This artist on Shutterstock also has work for sale on her site she is selling digital files which is just disgusting.  Check her work if you are an illustrator that does graphic images. I have one taken down she edits my images to remove details and up go 5 more, rinse and repeat all week long.
I do not know how to put the links in properly I hope they work and I hope this artist finds out.
Shutterstock artist let them know if you know who they are

I am so frustrated and angry she just keeps editing my work and producing more garbage as if something really important is broken in her brain.

Well I guess I freaked her out by telling her I reported her to SS she took down the other artists work but not the crap she built using my art she just keeps on going. I think that she is too stupid to understand that she is stealing she says her husband is a cop well I guess cops wives in Memphis should give this jerk some shame I am so angry. And there are so many idiots on Etsy willing to rip anyone they can off.

Ironic that she adds watermarks to her products on Etsy (so that nobody can steal her stolen work ;D )
I'd contact Etsy staff.
Sorry that your images got stolen!!

I did contact the Etsy staff they are really evasive about how many times a store like hers has to steal art until they shut her down, I used an attempt to get them to act like humans, I used plain old truth like they are raping my art and allowing someone who has stolen from me again and again and again and yada yada yada they don't care, I think Etsy knows theft is a part of its bottom line it calls profit I mean 25 times they know she is a thief and they do nothing about it, so scum bags just like her.  :-[

Sorry this is happening to you. I would be upset too.

Etsy is REALLY good at removing copyrighted work from sellers though. Just file a report.

I believe if Etsy sellers get 3 copyright infringements, the seller gets dropped. Have you reported them more than 3 times?

If someone frustrated me that much, I would make it my mission to search there site, find out other stolen content and try to get in contact with those artists to report her.

On side note her work is also terrible and looks like it should be scrawled on the walls of a padded room.

Etsy does nothing I emailed them to question the fact that she has had so many infractions they said that they take repeat offenders seriously, and then they let her keep her store. So I am thinking they do not take serial offenders seriously they in-fact know and did nothing except remove the images as she uploaded them, so proof is in the Etsy pudding.
So I am mad I am beyond frustrated. She shut her facebook page down as she didn't like me saying that she stole most of her products from me. She blocked me. I searched found out her husband really is a cop, go figure cops wife into ripping people off.  I hate Etsy

The week before I had 7 images removed all different pieces of my series ripped off edited add a skeleton here @ https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/ValdonImages [nofollow] oh if you draw black and white images your art may be there too, so it is that stupid lady but more over it is Etsy who makes it so easy for jerks to rip people off.

Oh man, what a b**ch. Sounds like she has no conscience. Name and shame - that's what I'd do. It's good that you called her out on her Facebook page. I would go even further and launch an all-out assault on her through social media. Write posts on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit etc about her low life, thieving ways. Expose her for the crook that she is.

Tell her your husband/wife is a contract killer, and he/she provides a very generous family discount. Might speed things up a bit.

It is said "This shop is taking a short break." hmm maybe Etsy, however, is blocked her?

That's the "vacation" setting.  If you're not going to be around to deliver purchases, you put your shop on hold.
