I am able to click on the thumbnail and an image comes up with licensing prices and an option to DL.  I hope this means it has been fixed for you.

You have 100K+ files at SS?

no wonder they were upset at being closed down! Roughing losing from $600 to $1,000 a day (business day)!

Yes, this is upsetting and also a warning for other contributors that they can be terminated anytime without any explanation and notice. Its unsafe business now.

I see this here:

I remember it being a very popular photo on SS many years ago... The "Author" listed here is zcool.com.cn

My portfolio is back online. 2 days ago i had over 197 000 files. Now i see only 84000, but i hope the rest of images will be back soon.

I'm still not able to login to my acount, but photos are on sale, so i think it'll be back soon.

Unfortunetly i'm not earning on my portfolio 600$ dayly at SS, and after may it's not even half of this. But SS is still best erner for me.

If you have 197000 images of people and you're only earning $300 per day, something has gone very wrong. Perhaps you need to look at your keywording?

I figure you should be making this daily via formula below-

$.1 per image per month = $19,700 

$19,700/30 days- $657 (rounded to the nearest day)

H'mm I reckon it doesn't matter how many images you have its costs out vs income in that matters and as I have no idea of your business model I can't have a valid opinion of what you should or should not be making and nor can anyone else.

I'm impressed by your numbers, but honestly, I wouldn't put up all those nudes and soft porn.  You're just asking for trouble.

On all-free-download I got a popup window with a shutterstock thumbnail in it. Clicking you go to SS with a search, and looking at the URL it says the source is:

&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=Nguyen%20Duy%20Phi&utm_source=38874

Does that mean that Nguyen Duy Phi is the person behind this portfolio on all-free-download?

Actually, that means that's the affiliate account name (odd that it's a person and not a site) - so that's the account that generates the kickback from the Shutterstock affiliate program and thus probably the person behind all-free-download. You could complain to Shutterstock's Global Director of Affiliate Marketing...

I am in the same situation as author of the post ( BDS ). The same day my account was disabled - the same reason. They found stolen images sold under thief name.

"Shutterstock has discovered that you are submitting images (119134195) to which you do not appear to own the copyright (http://www.dfiles.me/food-images-high-resolution.html [nofollow] and http://itop100songs.com/food-wallpapers/ [nofollow]). "

I sent e-mail explanation that I have raw file with camera serial number written but there is no answer up to now.

I found many stolen my and other photographers images.

Meh. It just goes to show that SS thinks it can simply disable accounts "no questions asked" and rob the copyright holder of a few days of income without any compensation afterwards.

This is what happens when companies focus on money instead of people. They are so big now, they just don't care. Rake in the dough and don't worry about where it comes from...legitimate photographers or thieves...money is money.  >:(

This is so scary! I see a lot of my work being given away for free. I spent so much time and energy fighting these websites I eventually gave up... It is so hard to stop these illegal websites. I think "regular" people don't realize it is all illegal too.

Can you link to your portfolio on any other sites please. It make it much easier to investigate. As you've seen if you have nothing to hide this forum can actually help you gather evidence.

Sorry to be paranoid but there are literally hundreds of threads on here with people complaining about account suspensions or closures and I can only remember about three including the OP's turning out to actually be wrong calls.

I see their site also includes a link to freevectorfinder.com, and sure enough, there's my stolen work. So it's not just photography.

Link to my site:

Thanks, what are they playing at! Again you clearly have the same props in many photographs and I can't find anyone else with the same images. I hope SS reinstate you right away, if you have the RAW files I don't see how they can't.

Have the thieving warez sites hit a new low DMCAing legit contributors when stolen work is put on their sites? If so SS needs to wake up like yesterday and side with their contributors. How can they even be referencing warez sites when emailing a contributor?!

How can they accept all the spam junk in other threads and suspend decent huge portfolios without even asking for evidence from the photographer.
You have my sympathies.

By the way, I can access your portfolio no problem now so have they reinstated you to?

Looks like that leads to Vecteezy.com, founded by Shawn Rubel, who lives in Kentucky.
