What happens when you steal images from Shutterbug?

You will only be given one warning. If It is unheeded, I will proceed to the following steps after I have gathered definite proof of your copyright violation:

    I will report this copyright violation to your web hosting company and attempt to get all your websites suspended. If you switch to another company, I’ll report you as well.
    I will report your website as spam to all the search engines in order for you to be blacklisted. This will destroy your search rankings. It’s not worth it.
    I will let every social network or forum you are a member of know that you are a content thief. Say goodbye to your reputation.
