so??? write to Yuri or anyone of the top sellers and see how they feel about it  ;D
it's been like that in every business. eg Willie Dixon vs Led Zeppelin; Robert Johnson vs Cream (Eric Clapton,etc). It's hard to prove you invented the wheel

you really can't imagine that is a copyright infringement, i mean the idea looks the same but there are really different photos it is not copied per se. And what make you think that the original is "original"? If you make a search you will find dozens of photos with the same idea, not only those 2 contributors.

It seems to be easy for making money. I just go to popular page and copy their ideas and adjust it a bit or just make my  photo by copy from them then I can stand in popular page and get more income.

Wowww thanks for good idea
 ;) ;) ;) ;D ;D

I think so. 8)

Don't worry what you should do.
Contact Shutterstock and they can decide whether they should start a conversation with the copycat. If they feel it is too blatant they will put a stop to it. They will question the other artist and let you know what they decide.

Agreed, I'd just let Shutterstock know about it.
Thank you very much Leaf. :-*

have you contacted the artist directly? Same concepts for sure but not exact enough to be considered a copy.  Just a slight change is probably enough to get out of legal trouble. Sad but that's reality...  :-\


 

I try but can't contact him. :(




I sent a message to him but no response. :-\

one thing is to be inspired by an idea and make one different photo yourself...other angle...other design...that from my point of view is OK. it is NOT ok to just copy a photo make a few adjustments, change 2 colors and draw a different graphic on it..and than claim that is your idea.

Please tell me that you made that photos from your OWN mind and haven't looked at the existing shutterstock database with concepts close to yours BEFORE making that "new concepts".
I understand I did not made the masterpiece.
But my images made before him.Please see ID:number.
What should i do for this case? :-\

Contact Shutterstock, some of those are way too close to be acceptable.  SS should be protecting you from people stealing your images along with copying them.  You are wrong if you think an image has to be exactly the same, a carbon copy, in order for it to be infringing on his rights.  Good luck. 

I also don't see any reason to contact that contributor unless you do it through a lawyer.
I think you have a good reason.
I will do it. :-*

why don't you sue all the 256 pages with this similars then?

man...you are really blind. if it is not exactly the same photo used with other vector graphic on it it can't be copyright infringement, if it is please show us how you registered the copyright for the concept. pathetic really. i hope you understand what i mean.

You made me confused.
So I should understand that things are normally right?. :-\

Without looking at each image in minute detail, i am assuming that all originals are yours and all copies have later sequence numbers on shutterstock.

By all means contact him but make it clear that unless he takes these down straight away, you will report to shutterstock.

If not resolved, then give the detail to shutterstock.  If there is any justice in this world, the volume of this activity should at very least cause them to remove the images with the possibility that they close his account altogether.

If you feel like it, miss out contacting him and go straight to shutterstock.

I hope you get it resolved.
Thank you all very kind from this forum :)

I wonder what would the stock image company do in that case...Even if is not considered infringement I take they might not like that...

I found this article by some lawyers that addresses the copycat,  copyright infringement versus plagiarism...

they address this issue Is in the middle of the article look for the title  is "Copyright Infringement versus Plagiarism" ...

bellow is the link.....

http://www.wisbar.org/newspublications/wisconsinlawyer/pages/article.aspx?Volume=84&Issue=6&ArticleID=2098

What do you guys think?

When it comes to clipart vectors, there are things that happen when it comes to similar...when people use the same techniques.

so confused :o
