Have found 3 of my images on this site, ClipartFest with DT watermarks and instructions to download from DT.(24094449 + 64355378 + 24099891 ) But the images are attributed to a woman from Little Rock in USA. (Mrs Vivian Bennett)

How do I know if this is a DT partner and if it is why wrong name?

I think they just mean that Vivian is the one who posted the link, not that she took the picture. The link still goes to your image.

No, the link does not goes to our images here. They are downloadable and usable, they even ask to be credited. I've also found at least one image. Do not remember where is the link here on dreamstime to report the site, anyone remembers?

The site is www.clipartfest.com It advertises all images as free, but today I can't get onto the site without a facebook account. I wrote to them about my images but have had no reply.
Support: are they a partner?

If you find your images used in an inappropriate way, please access the report infringement tool from your My Account/Report Misuse section

You can also contact this site directly at LINK

Clipartfest is one of many, many sites that offer free downloads, but you will find they only offer the watermarked sample that is already available online. They just link to what is already there.

And of course YouTube have videos that show the public how to remove watermarks!!

Malinesh I can no longer get on to the site past the home page, as I did before, it now seems to require a Facebook account. Today it keeps redirecting me to DT's free image site Stockfreephotos. As I can't reach the site I can't supply URL.
Hope you can help.

There is an email address at the bottom of the page I gave you.

Heathse, I still can enter without any FB account, and download all images. Do you need me to help you to find your images and url?

That's kind of you but I did email them the first time I saw my images, and Malinash provided a further link. Still waiting for a reply from them.

Did you also report the site using the report tool?

Hi Malinash,
I have contacted them twice through their site and once by email. As the site seems to make its money by advertisements rather than selling images is this still an infringement? The notes at the bottom of the 'report misuse' page are a bit off putting when read with the rather lengthy notes on copyright on the their site.

Any further advice please?

Heathse, it is still infringement, because they are offering our images for download, it does not matter if they are making money or not (they still are making money by website traffic and eventual clicks on ads).

Admins, I have used the report tool, but some days after, my image is still there for download, usually how much time does it take to be solved?

I wanted to report them to their web host but they are hiding behind a cloudflare proxy so that's it's difficult to find out who who hosts the site.

All your reports have been analyzed, please take into account that we are doing our best to solve them. Sometimes it takes time and insistence to make these sites take down the images they use inappropriately.

I know what.... everybody start linking images on that site to the number one stock agency out there. When their lawyers find out, this site will be nothing but a smoldering heap if ashes.

Come on, DT, figure out how to gain market share so you have the resources to hire legal bullies. :-)
