Any idea what is that and why they are trying to sell our photos in very low prices? I found a lot of my photos and don't see that somebody buy it here in extended licence for resale.

This keeps coming up again and again, so I'll leave this up for now:

The site you have found has no official connection to iStockphoto. As far as I know they don't actually have any files available at all. What they do have however is a site that appears to scrape the thumbnails and some meta data from iStock. That's basically it.

It seems to be a site intended to con the people out of their credit card details as obviously there is no way that iStock would be giving away $70 Vetta files on a site like that for $3 or whatever. So please, don't panic and certainly don't link to any potential such scam sites on the forums.

The iStock legal team are aware of this site and are taking appropriate action.

If you have any concerns over files being used outside of the licensing agreements, then please contact support. There are more details about reporting suspected abuse in the Help forum thread here:


FILE MISUSE


Thanks.

Istock is aware of the issue and they are investigating, you should delete the link to their site to avoid directing any additional traffic there.
