I have reported an author recently, who use many scripts and graphics from other Envato authors and obviously without extended licenses… This author is still in the marketplace and always uses the same process : sell an (unlicensed so illegal) script and remove it few days after, always in saying “I remove it because the users were very disrepectful”... Envato is aware for few days now. And he can sell today.
Hi SportTipsWorld, These “authors” are disrepectful with others authors and also buyers. I’m a buyer and I would buy ONLY original script and no ripped scripts… But all are not like me… We must report these authors. But what about the buyers who buy thinking that they buy an original script with licence and use this script to build their website with? They got an Envato licence and what is done is done… In France (I can only speak for this country sorry) a such case is the responsability of the marketplace which can turn against the seller.
Hi Endat, Personally I understand the frustration of authors AND buyers regarding such links. I just bring to Envato support thousands of illegal links (dozen of thousands?) that come from illegal websites. In my investigations to help the community, I even came across a file with 2500 direct downloads links still valid (Graphicriver items). And another list with 600 direct links to download illegally VideoHive products. I really do not like this kind of reporting, but I think such lists are truly **... Even if this “fight” seems useless. I think it is only an appearance. Something more smart is to find those who redistribute. This is more efficient, isn’t it ?
