The POLICE is stealing images - Very ironic!

"Crime stoppers" have stolen one of my images, the images is not online on any other site, then on Dreamstime. And that particular image has not been sold.
Should i report it? I got discouraged about all the legal stuff and so on the report system here on DT, Fee's and so on.

Have you reported any stolen images?. What was the outcome?

It is a bit ironic, but please use the report tool instead of posting it on the forum. You have their contact details here. It was probably a mistake of a person in charge with their twitter account (not necessarily a police officer).

We don't charge any fees for reporting misusage.

i can`t see a watermark in the "stolen" picture. Maybe there is a mistake or a delay on Dreamstime???
Or it was sold by an Partner-Agency of Dreamstime and it takes some time before you can see, that a licence was sold?
I had this problem with an other Agency and a Partner-Site of them, which needs over 6 Months for sending a List with sold Licences...

Maybe, but I haven't got any money or any indication that this images has been sold. Its not up, or have never been up for sale on any other site then dreamstime.

Dreamstime may have a delay, the sale statics on the forum is wrong for example. i have more then 9 sales---------->
