Banned by Shutterstock?

(1/14) > >>

blvdone:
I've heard many contributors were banned by Shutterstock last year when they changed the royalty structure.  Why were they banned exactly?  Did they write bad things about Shutterstock on their forum?  Were there another reasons they were banned?  If you were banned, let me know what exactly happened.

Be sure not use "please" in a message asking...
Who are you since you are a newcomer?

Banned 🙋‍♂️. No reason given, violation of TOS but that can be anything. Cancel Culture at its best, they probably didnít like my public dissatisfaction and posts about their thievery so I got the boot 🥾 #shutterstockcontributor #shutterstockboycott #sstk #shutterstock #boycottshutterstock shutterstocknow

If you were posting about 'their thievery' then that would be the reason. However much you or I disagree with the change to their royalty structure, they have every right to legally make such changes, and if you accuse them of being thieves then that would be defamation.

cathyslife:
I wasnít banned because I deleted all my images and closed my account.  ;D

But people who spoke out and tweeted about the thievery were banned. And some people changed their avatar to be something negative about SS (like calling them Shitterstock :-) ) and I think they were banned too.
