If anyone has videos on Storyblocks you may want to check to see if they've been stolen by others and resold elsewhere.

There is a growing number of fraud portfolios cropping up on Shutterstock selling video that clearly isnt theirs and tracing the videos they all seem to originate from Storyblocks.

The SS facebook groups have people openly uploading these as well.

No idea how they're GETTING them off Storyblocks but ive identified 20 different original authors in about an hour this morning having work end up on SS and resold.

Although quite a few of the videos are on multiple stock sites the one trend is they're *all* on storyblocks and descriptions are identical to the SS ones.

It might be worth checking to see if you have video used elsewhere (made easier by the fact the thieves are copy/pasting descriptions so it shows up easily in a search).

Ive contacted some of the authors to let them know.

I think this is always ongoing somewhere when you upload to those unlimited download sites.  Somebody can just download thousands of clips in a week and sell as their own somewhere else.
