(1/1)

This is my original which I have drawn in 2008:

and these are the screwed up versions uploaded to storyblocks member library:

after all; "when you are a thief, you don't mind how bad the deal is: you prefer a few cents rather than nothing, and storyblocks' member library seems like a good idea to you!"

I remember this thief because I had sent take down notices for these images before and they were removed from other places, but I guess he(?) will keep uploading them as long as the agencies let him do it..

If they refuse to take it down, simply publish it on social media, if people find out that the Storyblocks unlimited membership library features stolen content, it will be bad for their business. I'd be happy to share/retweet it.

Thanks. Oh I know they will take it down.. I just want it to be an example here for a while.

the bad thing is: the thief's profile is hidden so it is not easy to look for other stolen images.

It's not enough if they take these down.. after they remove the image, agencies usually leave the uploader alone and that's why they keep uploading them whenever and wherever they can.. It's better advertised here for a while..

they offer 20 000 $ guarantee for the content , just let someone to buy it then sue the guy , then they will pay.

Even better, they shout them out in an article:
