Shutterstock don't take stolen work seriously

(1/12) > >>

Julied83:
It's the second time I've  got a vector download and then modify a little bit and uploaded by another contributor. I contact Shutterstock infrigment department and even with proof, then don't take it seriously. I got that answer :

As you may know, ideas cannot be protected by copyright, only the expression of the ideas may be protected by copyright. Upon reviewing these images, it appears that while the ideas between your images and the other contributor's images are similar, the expressions of the ideas are sufficiently different.

 >:(

As anyone else had this issue and this disapointed shutterstock answer ?

deepvoice:
This is unreasonable for a site like shutterstock, can you please post those stolen pictures to see the difference, thanks

panicAttack:
not only that, this user is using 2 worded keywords for all of his keywords on all of his work without any consequences, reported it long time ago.

daveh900:
Please post screenshots of the two images.

I've had many of my ideas ripped by other contributors, but I have never seen a direct copy of my work.

Because 50 terrible keywords isn't enough, they wanted 100.  ;D

Sorry, back to the original.

Yeah, simple ideas and concepts can't be protected. Complex setups, in a photo, might be.

But no way anyone should be able to make a copy, small modifications and upload as their own. That stinks.
