Well, I do not expect any payment :  there was only 1 of my images in his port, an image of a frog.  But as the main keyword "frog" was removed (why did he do that??), I'm sure it was never sold.  If he did the same with the other images, his business will not have been very lucrative.

He had one of mine too but his keywords were different. Mostly relevant but including some spammed keywords. perhaps he thought he wouldn't get caught with different keywords?

Four of mine were stolen by this Adam Fier. I sent an email to Alamy on Sunday morning (my time) and received their response on Monday morning (their time). So congratulations to Alamy for swift and efficient response.

I am wondering whether this Adam Fier bought these images cheaply on another site, re-keyworded them and uploaded them to Alamy, hoping for a quick profit????

As noted above, I saw several of the files on 'dubious' sites, so they might have been downloaded from these.
It would be nice to think he had at least paid a bit for them, so he didn't profit from Alamy and the originators got something.

I just checked the:
http://mystockphoto.com/photo and was amazed how many stolen images they have online.
They have many images still showing shutterstock name and original image number.


A quick search did find some of my images, but clicking on them brought me to MY Shutterstock image page with just a referral link added to the address. Not stolen, just someone racking up referral income. Might even argue they're directing more customers to our shots. A bit different than someone uploading stolen images in their own name. But good find none-the-less, keep smoking out the thieves!


Agreed, this site simply looks like a referral site to Shutterstock.  No big deal unless I am missing something.


Maybe the Shutterstock images all point to the SS site.
However, at least one FAA user reported on their forum that mystockphotos.com is showing her FAA images as free pictures, still including the FAA watermark in the right lower corner
