Did anybody contact any of the copyright holders? Might be the best way to get it taken down...

Thanks Luis for letting mw know.

The *insult removed* stole some of my images too.

Source seems to be Fotolia, since some of the images I uploaded exclusivly there.

Robert, try to involve Fotolia into this besides yourself writing to Fiverr. This might put more pressure on Fiverr.
Sorry to hear that your images were used. Hopefully this gets taken down asap.

I filed a DMCA for two of my files now.
I also informed Fotolia, maybe they can close down the account faster.

The pity is the guy shows only one example images and we cannot see the other images he is selling too.

By the way: Fiverr should really make their DMCA form much more user friendly. It's a p*** in the a** to fill out all the stuff.

Here's a really interesting one: http://www.fiverr.com/maxsmorgan/send-you-20-stock-photos-vectors-you-want

This guy claims to be a contributor. Would love to know who it is and report them, get their contributor account shut down.

Got to admire (?) their honesty chutzpah:

Fiverr gets $1, the person doing the gig gets $4.

It's ridiculous how blatant this stuff is. Some listings clearly state that they get the images from Shutterstock.

There are at least a dozen listings right now for stock photos. I guess fiverr is the place to resell digital content. The company turns a blind eye to it.

I can't believe Shutterstock isn't all over this. It's costing them money, probably more than it's costing us. It's an easy way to circumvent their whole buying system.

I contacted the guy who claims to be a contributor, asking him if he sells his image or if he can get any Shutterstock images. He confirmed that he can get any images, photos or vectors, but not footage.

Really hope SS can figure out who this guy is. He goes by Max Morgan on fiverr but who knows if that's his real name.

Fiverr seems helpful, though. Just in case I didn't find the bundle of illegally resold images I was looking for, they emailed me with some other gigs that might help:



Gee, thanks, Fiverr.

Ask him if he can make you a good deal for more images outside of Fiverr so you might get his Paypal email...  ::) I'm sure he prefers a good bulk deal.

That would have the added benefit of not only having that gig removed, but also having his Fiverr account closed!  :)

The Gig you were looking for is no longer available.

I did some searching, both via google and on SS (max and morgan and nothing that looked right) and couldn't find the guy. The image he's using is on just about every wallpaper site out there (I used Google image search) - and other than it was taken in 2008 there's nothing useful in the EXIF. These are just two of the hundreds of sites with this image

http://wallpaperswide.com/spring_landscape_hdr-wallpapers.html
http://www.wallcoo.net/nature/Photo-manipulation-landscape/html/wallpaper4.html

I found a Max S Morgan on twitter, but it's an IP lawyer from Philadelphia (who doesn't list photography as his hobbies, so I don't think it's him :))

In addition to being disgusted about the slimeballs listing stock photos for sale on this site, it was pretty crazy to see the things people will do for $5. I can only assume that none of them are very good :)
