In order to improve the overall quality of the Shutterstock image collection, we are updating our policy for review of similar content. We avoid accepting Similar Content because it creates a poor user experience for customers and contributors by having large volumes of nearly identical images or clips. Browsing through large volumes of repetitive search results is time-consuming, and prevents customers from purchasing relevant content that fits their needs.
We are outlining tighter guidelines for what we consider to be similar content and this policy will now also apply to footage submissions. You can review the details of the policy changes and check out visual examples in the Contributor Support article Why was my content rejected for Similar Content? This policy will go into effect starting on August 12, 2019.
As a result of these stricter guidelines, some of you may encounter rejections of some types of content that was previously accepted. Please take the time to review explanations and examples provided in the support article and contact us if you have additional questions.
And as always, thanks for your continued support and participation in our marketplace!

You may encounter instances in which your work was rejected even though there is similar content already exists on the customer site. Our collection is frequently evaluated and content that does not comply with our guidelines is removed. Intentional disregard of any of Shutterstock’s policies can result in account suspension or termination. Review our Terms of Service for more information on our account regulation procedures.

Für die Kunden ist es nervig aus vielen ähnliche Bildern auszusuchen. Für Videos gilt das Gleiche.
In dem Support Artikel steht sogar dass Bilder gelöscht werden, die bereits akzeptiert wurden.
Schönen Abend euch.
