It looks as though it is possible to get your photos removed from Wallpart. Another photographer had success with reporting violations on their site, so I tried it myself.
First, I recommend opening a private tab or private window in firefox. If you use chrome, open an incognito window. If you use Safari, open a private window. If you dont know how to do any of that, open your browser and simply click on the file menu to choose the appropriate option. Don’t use internet explorer. Thats a horrible browser.
Now, what you’ll want to do is go to the Wallpart site, search for your images, and click on the image you wish to report. Then, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the “Report violation” link (see red arrow.)
This is where you’ll want to politely notify them that this is your photo, you didn’t upload it, and you would like it removed. Be nice about it. Why risk angering someone that the law can’t help you bring to justice?
The “Page URL” box will already be filled out for you. When I filled out the “email” and “name” boxes, I used a very old email address of mine that I use in case I’m worried about spam. I did use my real name, because I didn’t see the harm in that. Besides, I’m already telling them that its my photo, and in most cases, our names are in the name of the photo listing anyway.
After entering the captcha, and hitting the “submit violation” button, this is what you’ll see.
If you’re lucky, you may find that your stolen images are removed within 48 hours. I hope this continues to work for the rest of you.
I did notice when I clicked on the East Coast Road Trippin photo from the first image, it went to a 404 page. That was one of the images I had removed. So maybe its possible they still show up in the “You may also like” section, but it’s not actually listed for sale anymore.
