Just looked at the Halloween one. Without any doubt copied, down to the shadows and fine detail. It is shocking straight forward plagiarism, so I hope Fotolia act as fast on complaints from their own contributors, as they would from external complaints.

Fotolia dont care about copyright issues. I once was told in their forum by their forum moderator that I couldnt use elements of NASA images, and that I better delete all my images before getting into trouble, yet their library is full of it. I reported it, they said they would look into it, but nothing was done about it.
