Pinsdaddy Copyright Infringement

Are you a blogger or online writer who likes to use images for your articles? Do you observe due diligence when selecting free, non-copyrighted, stock images to use in those articles? It was brought to my attention today that Pinsdaddy is promoting people's copyrighted images for use as stock images. These images have been taken, without permission, from various online sites and posted on Pinsdaddy.

It appears that Pinsdaddy is akin to a content scraper who scraped copyrighted images from Pinterest to use on their website. You see mention of "Pinterest" in the titles of the stolen images when you click on them to come to the download page. Very concerned how Pinterest has been an enabler for content theft and copyright infringement!! I never was very keen on Pinterest just "taking" our copyrighted images for posting to their website and garnering the genuine traffic that our websites and blogs with OUR copyrighted images should be receiving directly.

Shown here is just one of many of my copyrighted images being used without my permission on Pinsdaddy http://www.pinsdaddy.com/jaguarjulie-pinterest_gkiiz3R7BbA2IibC5mVlOgvUYAlR3d0GITH%7CNC5ln84/5

In this copyrighted image of mine of Autumn Beauty Sunflowers that I grew in my sunflower garden, you can clearly see my copyright at the bottom of the photo.

Shown above is a composite photo that I assembled with some of my copyrighted images being illegally used on Pinsdaddy. As you are looking at the copyrighted images revealed in a search on Pinsdaddy, many of the same images repeat multiple times which makes the viewer think there are more images there than there are. As I searched on September 25, 2017, I was not finding certain copyrighted images of mine that I had found the day before. Something is faulty with the Pinsdaddy searches or they are changing the search tags to HIDE stolen copyrighted images!

Pinsdaddy Ignores Copyright on Images

In the above photo of a sunflower I grew in my garden, you can clearly see "Copyright Jaguar Julie Ann Brady" at the bottom right of the photo. Clearly, Pinsdaddy is blatant in its arrogant disregard of people's copyrights!

Pinsdaddy Took Images From Pinterest

Checking for my images on Pinsdaddy, it is curious how this website is attributing Pinterest in the filtered results: http://www.pinsdaddy.com/jaguarjulie-pinterest_gkiiz3R7BbA2IibC5mVlOgvUYAlR3d0GITH%7CNC5ln84/


Pinsdaddy Incorrect Photo Attribution on Copyrighted Images

And, when you click on one of my copyrighted images, it brings you to the download page with the stolen image and gives you a guide for the attribution of the stolen image!

Looking at the supplied photo attribution information, the copyright owner is not the attribution, but blogspot.com!

UPDATE: After filing my DMCA take down notices on September 25, 2017, I returned to the Pinsdaddy website to do further searches to find my copyrighted images with different search terms. It seems something was not working with their search function!! All of my search terms were truncated to 3 letters; e.g., searching on "brady" I got "bra" which was obviously not what I was searching for.

DMCA Take Down Notices - Some Stolen Copyrighted Images

Compiling the data from Pinsdaddy of stolen copyrighted images and matching that up with my official publications with my copyrighted images is time-consuming and not particularly rewarding. Here are just some of the stolen copyrighted images:

#1 Photographs of autumn beauty sunflowers taken from sunflowers I grew in my Jacksonville FL garden from seed that can be viewed at the URL below. There are a number of my copyrighted images that bear my "Copyright JaguarJulie Ann Brady" which were taken without permission to post on Pinsdaddy -- it appears they took ALL the sunflower photos that I have been posting to my Google blog!

  1. This makes me so mad. I just found a bunch of my images on there as well. Ugh. Thank you for the info! Were you able to get a resolve?

    1. Anna-Marie, I'm not sure I could say that I got this awful problem resolved! It seems these copyright thieves are hell-bent on continuing along on their merry way of stealing from other people ... it is high time they stopped the stealing and maybe get creative with their own stuff.

      Delete
    2. Just found 1 of my flickr images there out of context, no proper attribution or link back to flickr in breach of copyright.
      image of kilted (male) cyclist under page suggesting kilted biker girls.

    3. Gareth, it surely seems it is pretty pervasive on the content theft by pinsdaddy!! You'd think a class action lawsuit with damages has to be in the works!!!

      Delete
  2. This also happening on flickr.
    I am a photographer and using flickr finding some of my photos on there again no proper accreditation not back link to flickr. Context of the photos also lost and distorted.
