This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Reporting a Duplicate

These 3 cheaters have "dozens" of duplicates. Now I know why they have some of the top scores on pixoto, they cheat.

Our report team reviewed these portfolios and found only between 1 and 3 "very similar" images for each photographer. Can you give examples of which images you found to be too similar - perhaps it is a definition issue?

For what it's worth, I agree with Jason. Yeah....lots of silhouettes seems to be the theme with most of those...but among those, there are differences between them. Seems to me that it's more of a style...and while eventually I get tired of seeing a certain style (like those guys behind the bull type animals with the water and mud flying everywhere), they ARE dfferent. Am I wrong for doing a lot of bird photography or night photography? You can see similarity in those. However...after seeing a billion of the same types of image, I *do* tend to start giving a serious consideration to originality over the ones I see endless times over.

There "were" many duplicates 13 hours ago. For what it's worth, Christopher, the duplicates I mentioned are not posted now. Sorry everyone, but I know what I saw.

Izhar, you are right! I had a look in his portfolio and found some more stolen photos

He mirrors the stolen photos so that you can't find them with tineye. I suppose all photos he submitted without EXIF data are stolen.

In order for the team to verify the copyright infringment they will have to flip his images. I did a search on this photo he says is his and tineys came back with no results. I then copied and flipped the image and it found all kinds of copies.

I flipped this photo and got he following results on tineye.

I hope his account is deleted soon. Great catch Izhar. Keep up the good work.

Not all are flipped, the ones I found last night came up straight away, but others didn't, for instance I couldn't find the croc and egg because it was flipped...but someone else found it.

I am sure they will get to it tomorrow morning as they are not fully staffed on the weekends. I know how frustrating it can be. I want to delete them right now...:) But He has been cheating and stealing for a while so one more day will be ok.

I will continue to do what I can to help make this site a success. I myself was an entrepreneur and had a few businesses in my life. I have a hard time not getting passionate about the things I care about in life. I thank you Mr. Izhar for your vigilance and attention to the details.
PS...You would make a very good detective. :)
