General Stock Discussion / Shutterstock acquires Turbosquid
« on: January 26, 2021, 07:38 »
Shutterstock is acquiring Turbosquid:
https://blog.turbosquid.com/2021/01/26/shutterstock-to-acquire-turbosquid-the-worlds-largest-3d-marketplace

Since some artists are contributing to both Shutterstock and Turbosquid I think this may be of interest.

You have to be a bit careful about classical music sheets - sometimes the score is not the original, but has been corrected, modified, adapted or arranged in some different way, and this might establish a new copyright of the publisher who did this. To be on the safe side use only original, unmodified music sheets.

Also, more and more countries exchange data. You never know if your income from a stock agency isn't one day reported back to your tax authority.

I looked at the site's WHOIS entry and see that all registrant information is hidden through a proxy service.

Code: [Select]
REGISTRANT CONTACT
Name:PROXY PROTECTION LLC
Organization:PROXY PROTECTION LLC
Street:417 ASSOCIATED RD #324
C/O FIVEDOLLARPHOTOS.COM
City:BREA
State:CA
Postal Code:92821
Country:US
Phone:+1.7147064182
Email:[email protected]

Also, there is no imprint on the site as far as I can see.

This is a BIG red flag.

Sending your valuable content to an anonymous party would be a completely silly thing to do.

Good luck.

Isn't 4th July a holiday in the US? So it is a long weekend and there will be no one available so sort out this mess until Tuesday?

I think I am missing some images, too. I sent them several emails about his.
They must be getting some ten thousand emails now from angry contributors.
Hope their servers break down.

I see that you are based in Australia. How do you handle VAT for customers in the European Union?

When I looked in to her/his shop, the shop consists completely of vectors printed on shirts, bags, pillows......
The shop  has almost 1400 items and had over 100000 sales.

Can you post the link, please? I want to check it out.

How does it handle European VAT requirements? This would be important to know before even looking at it.

17
However, I needed to have a minimum portfolio size for uploading,  and those images needed to be not in the micro world

What was the required minimum, if I may ask?

Total Commander has good renaming possibilities:

If you have the copyright on the design then the proper way to handle this is to send Turbosquid a DMCA request.
