Talk about images being ripped off, why would anyone want to even be part of this:

Hi,

Sounds like a good time to leave Shutterstock. But then, microstockstock sites don't really pay anything anyway. I'm getting ready to pull all of my images from microstock sites. I gave it a try for two years, with most sales giving me $0.35, and a couple at $5.00. It's not worth my time to create the images, upload, title, keyword and so on. The only way to make money on microstock is to enter their contests where you compete with 250-1,000 other photographers for $100 to $1,000.

Have Fun,
Jeff
