Take a look at this "artist" on Shutterstock for your videos.  I caught at least three of my exact video clips in his portfolio.

How would they of gotten access to all those 4k and HD files from all those different contributors? 'Best Indian Style' Maybe an india based reviewer?

I don't know if all of his portfolio is lifted from other artists, I just know that three of mine were.  SS took those three down after I reported it.

Nice how Ss only removes those three
I guess they do tolerate theft

I looked at 5 or so by screen capturing ones that were unique enough for an image based search to match.All of them were other artists.

curious - how did you find 'your' videos/images on someone elses portfolio? did they just have the same titles, or how did that happen?

I sometimes look at my clips on the customer side to see if things all look good.  On this one clip, I saw at the bottom in the other related clips this exact clip from up top was shown.

I originally thought I mistakenly uploaded this particular clip twice -- something that I've done in the past.  So I clicked on it to get the ID so I can delete it.  And much to my surprise, it was credited to another artist.

Looking further, I noticed two others of mine.  All COVID related.

So I investigated my options and was told to submit a DMCA request.  SS then removed the three offending clips within 2 days (although they said my particular request "did not adhere to the strict statutory requirements of the DMCA").

So you see, it was total happenstance that I stumbled upon this rouge portfolio.

If there are more stolen clips in his port, I guess SS won't do anything until the original creators of the clips submit a complaint.

Which is unfortunate.

What is stunning to me is that SS only took down your three clips, and not closed that FKR's account.

Sadly thats common.  Look at the large number of image theft threads here and on their forum.
To complain you need to be the copyright holder and they'll remove the specific items.
There's no system to report an entire portfolio for theft.  Its been an issue for a few years now.

Why isn't he taken down yet? To those who've found their videos, have you reported him yet?

I reported it, but they only took down my videos from his portfolio.

Unbelievable. They really couldn't give a crap if there was other stolen content in that portfolio.

The portfolio is down to 58 from 203, so others must be submitting take-down requests.

Down to 7 now...

You would think, after multiple take down requests, the whole portfolio, and the "photographer" would get tossed.

Six...  :)

Maybe it just takes time for them to age off the server. It has been 4 or 5 days. Only two since they started cleaning.
