I've recently analysed newbielink:https://www.shutterstock.com/g/Quartz593 [nonactive] and found out that this profile has stolen all vectors from flaticon.com just added few background colors and shadows and uploaded to shutterstock. This is copyright infringement of flaticon contributors and I think this profile should be blocked ASAP.

Did you report this to SS?

I don't have contributor account on SS so I wrote email to newbielink:mailto:submit@shutterstock.com [nonactive] but don't know if they will take action about this. Actually I wrote this post so someone can report this to SS. Thanks

You don't have to have contributor account to report SS. They have a compliance email which you can send email to.
I don't think anyone here will email SS on your behalf.

I think this is the correct email for infringement claims

Shutterstock responded that you have to be copyright owner to report copyright issue. I don't know what to do.
OMG this is so clear that he/she has stolen the all of his/her portfolio.

Please compare this photo with below links:

Also I attached screenshots.
Maybe someone has closer connection to Shutterstock, he can help us to close this type of portfolios. Because it affects all contributors' sellings.

No sympathy. Flaticon is owned by the same jerks as freepik. They made a killing stealing vectors from Shutterstock...including dozens of mine. Apparently they also own "Tutpad" and "Piktab." Screw em.

I'm assuming you work for these people, which is why your only three posts here are complaining about stolen work from #$@%^# who steal work from others and give it away for free. Making your URLs private doesn't work when you link to all your other sites at the bottom of your home page.

It also doesn't work when I'm still here keeping an eye on all the sites you own.
