did anyone download any files from this site? I wonder if its all a scam or do they really let you download all these files if you pay.

I get a clearer picture of what all the fraud downloads been all about at istock anyway. Purchase stolen credit card numbers online, steal images from agencies through the cards. make websites (about 10-20) that sell these images. a couple gets shut down doesn't make that much of a difference.

Looks like we living in the digital wild wild west w very little laws to stop these thieves.

Solution is to band up and put a bounty on these guys or was that a kickstarter project ? haha.. wanted dead or alive!

I will contact Shutterstock but I don't understand how they don't saw this before me. I think it's not very new.
Not only Shutterstock is concerned, Veer, Istock... it's a little bit scary...
If you search on Google with name of the bundles (they have a lot) you find many website with multi download links. One example with a small bundle:
https://www.google.com/search?q=Amazing+Underwater+Collection+-+Shutterstock+25xJPGs&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a
I'm too little and I don't have many times to spend to clear this problem alone, Microstock website like Shutterstock have to help, I hope theyll do.
I sent a dmca notice to the web hoster (with the whois ip server) but it's only a webcache "CloudFlare is NOT a web host for this or any other website. We don't provide web hosting services for any site except for cloudflare.com. We have no way to remove content from a website."
I 'll send an email to the administrator website but I think it's for nothing , He must know it's illegal... and the problem is much bigger than this only website.

This topic comes back from time-to-time... These sites exhibit interesting content to sustain the download links at the file sharing sites. Those who share the links may earn money from those who pay for "high speed" downloads.
Fortunately the stolen files aren't licensed so the serious usage is limited. Unfortunately, many of these files are used in so closed circles that catching unfair use is almost impossible...
Several times I saw my own images distributed via this sites and I started to report the rar's at the file sharing sites. They deleted quickly the files but guess what... Within hours, new links were available at the comments... After several weeks of "fighting" I gave up.
I guess, agencies also cannot keep a workforce just to report links 8/24.
Only one question remains open for me: how these people "purchases" the shared material???

I agree, it's not a contributor fight.
Microstock websites sell our images so cheap, it's still valid for pirates to buy them because they will make more money by offering them free for download  :-\
Some links are old, it means that nobody try to remove them.
Well, it is the weekend, it is time to think of better things.
