Im not gonna bother with the form for now.
Just know that there is a thread over at Pixelsquid about more and more artists recognizing their work being sold under this user's page.
I guess some others might go through that process if thats the only way you will remove him...

Adobe cannot do anything about this if it isn't reported through the form.

I see in the PIxelsquid forum several people reported.
I hope we dont need to go through every single object he stole and Adobe would just realize that 100% of that account is stolen.
(altough - if say only 5% was stolen, is the guy still trsuted to continue selling like nothing happened?)

Terrible, but sadly not unusual. Is it YOUR work? I ask because Adobe seem to only accept official reports from the copyright holder.

Some of the things there are my work, Yes.
Others belong to other colleagues from Pixelsquid.
