I guess it raises the question of where all the other images (person, grass, buildings) came from as well.

Now you get my Point! :) If people start looking into this profile will discover a lot of picture from themselves.  >:(

Without being able to find the source images, I find it suspicious that the balloon thief's portfolio has composite images where the image parts are not in the portfolio too. For example, there's a series of diet images that have a cupcake, hotdog, doughnut and pizza slice in them. None of those food images are in that portfolio.

I found the cupcake, and at least the frosting is taken from one of Ruth Black's images. The thing is, he is taking just small parts of the images, changes the shapes and removes small details so the searching tools (tineye, yandex, google.images) wont work/detect them.

If you send a DMCA, any agency should remove the image and wait a counter notification from the guy who stole it. It means that he will have to declare that he is the owner/creator and that he has some files to prove that. Which wont be the case, because you have the raw files. :)



Anyone can point me to a site where I can read the German regulations for drones and the commercial use of the images/footage made with it? I have found some myself, just not sure about the right ones?

Thank you! Maybe an official site?

In the past few days, someone is buying my clips like crazy in Fotolia. I've had sales spike before, but this Something really unusual. All purchases are 4K, all kids of subjects...

If it's a card fraud, you will probably get some refunds. However, let's hope that the guy who bought your videos won't upload them as his own on other stock agencies.
Otherwise, clients who are buying massively do exist. They are rare, but they exist. :)

Is it legal to buy a stockphoto, using this photo for a photoshop-composing and upload this version on a stockphotoagency?

The licence is a royalty free.

No, it is not legal. There are some CC0 license sites where you can find free images to use for your compositions. However, except for NASA, I wouldn't recommend such sites because even there some people upload files taken from other authors. And you never know what you get.

I have found Iselee's images on some of these sites, and this just an example.

It means you have uploaded some images news worthy and they were chosen in the News section.
