Hello! I’m Boians Cho Joo Young.
The official answer to the illegal sale of the copyright property of 856 cuts of Boians 3D content of Fotolia have come in 14 days . Since Fotolia is a foreign company that has entered Korea , I sent a protest about Korean. Boians have been providing content with Fotolia for the past six years . It is currently in the state of withdrawal.
Adobe Stock / Fotolia’s official position is sighing. The heart of this case is that Adobe Stock / Fotolia sold Boians 856 Cuts of copyrighted material without permission. I have not received an apology, nor have I been promised financial damages.
Adobe Stock / Fotolia is currently generating revenue from selling copyrighted products, A company that is responsible for the protection and management of copyright works. If you sell unauthorized use of authorship rights of others, and you are not responsible for apologies and damages, on what basis will your company sell the images to customers?

우선, 작가님의 저작권을 침해한것으로 말씀하신 Pavaluca 판매자에 대한 콘텐츠는 더이상 판매되지 않도록 조취되었음을 알려드립니다.
더불어, 작가님께서 Fotolia 에서 판매하셨던 콘텐츠들은 Fotolia 에서만 독점적으로 판매하였던것이 아니었던 것으로 확인되며, 다른 경로를 통하여 콘텐츠가 도용되었을 수 있습니다. 작가님의 콘텐츠가 Fotolia 를 통하여 유출되었다고 볼 수 있는 근거가 없으며, 당사의 해당 콘텐츠 도용에 대한 책임이 없습니다.
Adobe Stock/Fotolia 팀 드림.

First of all, I want to let you know that the content for the Pavaluca sellers that you mentioned infringing on your copyright is no longer sold.
In addition, the content that you have sold on Fotolia has not been sold exclusively on Fotolia, and your content may have been compromised through other channels. There is no reason to believe that your content has been leaked through Fotolia, and we are not responsible for theft of that content.
