I know this has been discussed to death, I know there is tons of verbiage for me to read in the licensing FAQs, and I know it depends on a lot of different factors. I just want to know if anyone can quickly give me a definitive answer to this question:

I snapped a picture of the skyline of NYC. There are no people in the photo, and it is a zoomed out photo of the whole city (with a lot of gaussian blur to boot). My question is, can I provide this photo as an available background in my theme download package to the end user?

Not trying to bypass PhotoDune and be a cheapskate (as I have made plenty of purchases over there for other areas of my theme), I just happen to really like this one photo I took and thought it would look good with my theme.

P.S. If I can provide it, what do I tell the theme reviewer? Do I just say “I took this picture” and that’s enough for copyright purposes? Thanks for any advice!

Let me get those TimTams! I think I only live about 3 hours from you (Indianapolis) and I would literally drive to Chicago for a pack of those. I finished mine the first day I received them.

My only complaint (besides the vegemite) is that I can’t get the rubber smell out of the little travel mug lid and it makes my coffee taste like rubber.

Congrats man!

I provide both an XML and a SQL file for the user to choose how they want to import the data, so yes, you can provide a SQL file.

What is “Quickstart”? I’ve been looking for better ways to provide one-click demo installs for my customers…

Thats great news, so thy closed the account of the violator then? Glad to hear its all worked out for you.

Yes they closed the account entirely, and then apparently that user created a new account and posted a forum topic complaining about it which got 74+ replies within the first 5 hours. I just woke up this morning to see that and I had only read the first page when that forum topic got deleted too. I have no idea what the next 7 pages of replies read but I’m soooooo curious to find out. I wish I could have read what they were talking about. Oh well, justice has been served (until that user creates another account pretending to be a different person trying to sell the same theme framework again… ugh)

I think they solved your problem, I saw another post in the forum about a closed account and couldn’t find the theme.

Ah, I see now, awesome, thanks.

So I submitted the DMCA Notice almost 48 hours ago and I haven’t heard anything from Envato, nor have they taken down the theme. I’m just wondering if this is a normal time to wait – does anyone know? I was thinking it was supposed to be within 24 hours but I don’t remember where I read that…

Hi IndustrialThemes,

I will check up on this matter and see what I can help out with.

Thank you for your patience.

Thanks for looking into this. Wondering if you found anything out yet? Thanks!

Considering this user contacted me prior to releasing their theme telling me they had used my theme framework to make their theme, that they were aware I owned the copyright for it, and asking me if they could release it, and I did not give them permission, I would say, yes, it’s a pretty blatant, intentional copy. :)

I’ll let Support know. Thanks!

Thanks! For anyone else who comes across this, support responded to me and told me the exact same thing @ThemeFusion told me: issue a takedown notice. Here’s a helpful article on it: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/114.

Thanks @ThemeFusion

But the user is a fellow ThemeForest author, do I really still need to do this?
