My sales have been awful this week. I’m not sure if it’s related to the buying system but it’s strange coming off of two good weeks.

Authors make themes that sell well and corporate portfolios have proven to sell the best. This isn’t about being the most creative author on ThemeForest, it’s about making money.

I’d also say that the corporate themes you mention are some of the most versatile out there. They may be made with businesses in mind but most can easily be adapted to suit many other needs.

Mark, so what you’re saying is you’d be okay with it if I bought all your themes, started a portfolio, put all your themes in there claiming them as my own with live previews made by me all saying “Designed and developed by Alex Pascal”, tricking buyers into hiring me for their work? Only because “I know be reselling the theme”? I’m sorry, but I don’t think you thought that one through. Buyers can’t claim your work as theirs. They can buy the theme 100,000 times. It will still be yours.
No, if an buyer changes the copyright thats up to him, but when a buyer places an screenshot of somebody’s file in his portfolio well thats stealing, you cant take credit for stuff you dont created.
That’s what we are talking about in this situation. The buyer has put credit at the bottom of the theme (which looks largely unchanged) claiming he designed and made it. I accept that they may not have broken any laws or terms and conditions but ethically it makes them fraudsters. If a design company wants to take a short cut and use a template or theme for a project I say go for it. But don’t then pass it off as all your own work, especially, as is the case here, when you have only changed the background.

I just checked some of my old designs. Most are okay except for the differences in fonts and it doesn’t handle PrettyPhoto very well.

For what i know when a buyer buy;s an theme of yours he can change the copyright line to anything he wants. I have a couple of buyers who have done the same, i dont mind, they pay me for the theme. Dont forget about this…...an buyer often dont want a strange name on there website, so they will put there own name there.

welcome in the world of templates ;)

Be smart and give the buyer support, it will increase your name!
Removing the credit at the bottom of a theme or template is not the same as replacing the real designer’s name with your own. If you didn’t design the website, don’t put text at the bottom saying you did whether you paid for it or not. It’s simply a lie.

Dude let it die, do not support IE6 ;)
I fully support this post. I haven’t supported IE6 for some time now in the hope that by not doing so I can contribute to its decline.

I can forgive someone who has not used WordPress for asking me for help with a WordPress related issue but what I really can’t stand is when a WordPress rookie, in their infinite wisdom, sends me an email or posts on the item discussion flat out proclaiming my theme doesn’t work despite the 380+ other happy customers and the live preview suggesting otherwise.
