Hi everybody!

I came across two web-sites with articles with pictures and one of them is mine. They posted it in high resolution and basically it's free for everyone to download it through right click. I went few times through Shutterstock licenses and I didn't see that it's actually forbidden but then when I wrote to the support they said that if I provide a proof that the image was bought from Shutterstock they will investigate. So, that made me think that, actually it might be illegal.
I contacted web-sites' support as well and now one of them simply deleted the whole article and another one never wrote back and photos are still on their page.
It's super difficult to understand license's language if you've never been in a law school, so I thought that I can get help here to clarify this matter.

If they licensed the image they can put it online at any size they like, as far as I know.

Which is why I'm asking what the actual concern is ... ( note, some places have size restrictions )

What size did they post your image? Try reading through their license restrictions very carefully.

here is the link: newbielink:https://hostelblog.hostelrocket.com/top-ten-places-visit-venezuela/ [nonactive] through right click you can get image over 6mp resolution. Later I've found few websites who share "free" wallpapers by simply linking to pictures in high resolution, and my picture was linked to this website. Tough they deleted it once I wrote them that this image is actually for sale. So, I mean, it's super easy for anyone to use it as he/she wants.

And what's about getting info where they purchased this image - they simply don't reply. I guess it might matter to write to hosting or domain name registrator so they can get this info from them (if they will decide to do so).
