Yup, now that I hear this bloke has gone onto social media, I'd hope SS would sue him.

Was hoping I could find his tweets but no luck so far. :)

Bumping this thread hoping for an update from the OP. Was this ever resolved?

So after this joker wastes tons of Shutterstock's time and resources following up on this nonsense and entertaining the insane possibility that this claim has any merit, and possibly after this guy even attempts legal action (which it sounds like he might be motivated enough to do), can SS then sue him for all of the lost time and money spent on this? Or what about txking? The other guy is tweeting and posting about this, I'm assuming linking to your images. This might do harm to your reputation if it spreads far enough.

Just seems crazy to me that someone can simply fire off an email and begin a process that costs everyone involved, and then walk away without penalty after it will undoubtedly be found to be a frivolous claim.

As if photographers don't have enough to worry about these days, now you have to worry about someone suing you for taking pictures of your own face.

This is one of those things I'm afraid of. Somebody suing me for images that they mistakenly think they own. So much fraud and misuse goes on with our images I think it is only a matter of time.

Claiming someone is acting illegally/fraudulently, which claim can be proven to be untrue, can lead in many countries to a criminal charge of Crimen Injuria ("unlawfully, intentionally and seriously impairing the dignity of another.") against the original claimant. This can also lead to a civil claim for dames caused by this person's untrue claims.

No word yet. I'm at this point left in the dark as well and hope I can get some sort of information as to what is going on.

I'm hoping the person who is making this claim didn't just silently drop it

If they do drop it, I hope SS will at least let you know that it's a dead issue.

There is some resemblance, but clearly you are a much more versatile model.  ;D

Glad you got it sorted out, and thanks for getting back to us with your update.

Has your port been offline since your OP in July? (actually, reading back, I'm not sure if you said it was offline even then).

are you taking self potrait? or other photographer took those photos? it is quite strange the other guy will mistake other faces for his own face.. and if he is not even model for photographers.

anyway, to me it is a story that can make into a movie, so u better go out to sell the story.

do you think the person and you lookalike? i never really see a person look like me at all, and i wonder will two strangers really look alike?
