As A stock user whom always credits I am very sorry your works have been misused ... Without stock providers I would not be able to do anything!!Too Many take for granted..So I when I use your images you will always be credited!
the more u get upset, the more u will make people rebellic and they will misuse ur work. also its not fitting to the athmosphere and peace that u try to express with the pics. let those stupid people use ur stuff, u wont stop them anyways, except u stop to upload. remind them in a peaceful way, that they should show u respect and gratefulness for offering ur works for free. ur way above is contra-productive.
I disagree that it is contra-productive to ask people to take a moment to actually read my rules rather than download the picture without looking at them, even though I know it won't deter thieves. I am just acknowledging that I do notice when my rules are abused, but not to the point where I will stop providing stock. Thanks for your feedback and support of my work, though
