Just got mail from Fiverr, how nice to promote "Bank of shutterstock" by logovala.

That's a doozy isn't it - it's one of the gigs I mentioned in my blog as it was so flagrant. When I reported a different gig to Shutterstock I mentioned that there were others, so I hope their compliance department will shut this doofus down soon.

It really does make it hard to take Fiverr seriously as an ethical business - when they're promoting one of these image thieves.

...I'm not as P.O'd as Mike, but it's getting close :)

Haha... I'm probably not as angry as my posts sound. More amazed, really, that this kind of insanity not only happens but is basically endorsed by Fiverr. And that Fiverr isn't your typical piracy site. It's a legit company attempting to do legit business, with staff, a Park Ave office, etc. It's just unreal that they are so not interested in doing anything about this.

What can they do other than look at each gig selling images that is posted and then check to see if those images are for sale by someone else? The man-hours required make that a non-starter for any business trying to make money.

@Jo Ann Snover: You can be sure that those email inclusions are generated by some sort of "others that purchased that gig also purchased" type of script. Completely automated.

I'm not defending them, just giving my opinion of how things are. Does anyone have any ideas that a company could realistically implement to stop this type of thing from happening?

That's almost like having people who download a full size image to check for imperfections, copyright issues, model releases and other things.  Crazy talk!

I find it unbelievable that agencies want the copyright holder to contact them, or else they cant do anything. Such bvllshit !!

Its like reporting a murder to the police and the police saying only the victim can report it.

Jaysus, when do the agencies pull their finger out of their asses? They take 70-85% of your earnings and let you rot in hell as a reward.

The sort of thing you do is select out the likely problems with software - a scan of the text of a gig, guided by the category. Computers are good at that sort of thing. You then review those with a high score, not every item. You then refine when problems are reported

You also have a policy to ban offenders - just as the stock agencies usually do

You need to have the equivalent of public executions (account closure) to let all sellers know you're serious

Sure you'll still miss a few, but you'll be much better than the current "not my problem" train wreck

So you don't have to spend 5 $ or 10 $ per photo, you will get 25 stock photos in this price.

no problem with copyright issues.

That's insane. Surely here we have a business who are facilitating the sale of copyrighted material. Without the proper controls and procedures in place, surely this would place the company in a questionable legal position?

Outside of the legal route, the other alternative is go give the company such a bad reputation that there site will be "flagged" or "downgraded" - much in the same way that sites allowing the download of movies get their IP blocked. That wouldn't be easy or quick, but if they continue to allow these infringements to happen; to my mind they are in the same business as those MP3 and movie sharing sites the governments are so keen to block.

That sites mentioned in the Webutation reviews site for Fiverr.

I don't use Facebook - anyone who has can leave a review for the company here:
http://www.webutations.org/go/review/fiverr.com]
[url]http://www.webutations.org/go/review/fiverr.com
[/url]

When Google raters (they exist) rate web pages, this site is one they check out. Not somewhere you want a bad reputation.

I don't get paid to do this stuff, following one guy trail is quite easy with google, sites and more sites with gigs...

Well, you can send a DMCA to the ISP and they have to take the site down. But that indeed can only be done by the copyright holder. All we need to do is set it up. Someone asks for someone else's photos to be downloaded and you have them by the balls. I am not sure if entrapment is legal in this case.

Just has to be enough to "rattle" the business. Not all publicity is good publicity. "Oh yeah, Fiverr - that company which acts as fence for criminals!"....

Dangerous thing the web when crossed...

Just realized - "fence" might be a bit confusing outside of the U.K..
