Did you ever realized this??
I am sure that you will find your port there as well as i found mine.
Cheap websites (smell quite bad like "SEO" and definitely is Duplicate Content for Google) selling your port?

Some questions to SS:
1: If they sell our images for 23 Cent / much do you keep and how much does a contributor gets? 8 Cent?? 4 ???
2:How many of these "partnersites" do you run?
3: where in our sales-statistic do we find these sales?
4: How can we prevent to get our images "sold" over these "websites"??

Cutcaster / How to get a file deleted?
« on: October 03, 2013, 12:17 »
does someone knows a way to get a accepted file deleted?
Looks like you have to write to the support, right?

That would be a reason for me to cancel my account.
They dont sell anyway.

4 / How to get your account closed

Unfortunately the world is more and more packed with people who only understand "brute force" and who are resistent to any kind of reason.

Here is a way how you get rid of stockphotomedia

1: tell them by mail that you forbid them to sell any image which is longer than 6 month in their database. Put your lawyer in CC and tell them that you step into legal action without any warning if they sell one
2:  tell them by mail that they have to delete your account latest 6 month after your last upload . Put your lawyer in CC and tell them that you step into legal action without any warning if your account is still active after that date
3: Edit your profile and write "Dear Customer, you should better buy our images at SHUTTERSTOCK or any other serious agency"
4: Create a mail signature with a part like this: "DONT SELL / BUY IMAGES AT" , link to this thread and tell them that you gonna leave that in your mails as long as they leave your account active.
5: use a bulkmailprogramm to ask them in very small intervalls for a confirmation and send this mail to as much stockphotomedia-accounts you can find. short down the sending-intervall a bit every hour.

in our case they confirmed quite early.
we only had to ask around 800 times until we got the confirmation.

And folks - i know much more of even worse legal tricks to annoy people like they are.
I definitely hate these "wannabee-Bonapartes" with their mean hostage-strategy

5 / Watch out - they take your images as hostages

We made, as many others , in the beginning of our "microstock-career" the mistake to try many agencies, just to find out that many of them are highly unserious and dubious .

Stockphotomedia, for example, does not close down your account.
They expect you to delete every single image with a singular click on to a delete button.

We, for example, have some thousands of images in their database and it will take us a helluva time to get these thousands images deleted
This is their way to make you stick to them.
This is the most unserios behaviour i have ever encountered amongst 50 agencies .

Stay away of stockphotomedia!

Another reason of not sending them your images?
They do not sell!

SS in one month = between 200 and 500$
Stockphotomedia in more then 7 months = ZERO !!
With the same material!
