If you want do complaint for the theft and resale of your images to Shutterstock,
you have to tick and agree this in the form: 

"I understand that Shutterstock may provide the affected user with a full copy of this complaint, including my full name, email, street address, and any other information included in my report, and may provide a version to third parties, if requested."

"Note that any abuse of this form may result in the termination of your customer or contributor account."
But, thieves only risk deleting of the files concerned... "you may request that the content be removed from Shutterstock"

Let's be reassured, Shutterstock is very respectful of thieves >:(

lol, yes, funny + messed up. how about shutterstock gives the full details of the thief's account? ah, but then thieves would probably start filing fake dmca reports to steal  that info too...

simple solution:
a) don't allow accounts from east india/nigeria/etc - because most of the 'stolen' content originates from there. it's an accurate stereotype, because those tend to be the 'business models'.
b) if it has an east indian name, don't allow the account to be opened, again --^ see above. OR - require extra proof that the assets are indeed there's - OR - do a little extra checking before allowing such an account to be opened up.
