a concern I’d have is that if I create a video using a template bought here like apparently some of the ones listed in this thread are, that’s a direct ripoff of something that’s on tv, then the creative agency that was hired to make the video for the tv show could easily sue me for copyright infringement if/when they saw my video on youtube or other site, and of course I’d have to do a passthrough litigation/litigate against envato since they sold me the infringing content; and/or the original agency would name envato as a co-defendent. so yes if there’s any direct rips from tv show or other logos that are infringing, it could easily put envato out of business. good idea to catch these where possible. creativity is good, direct rips of others’ creative works is not.

Definitely. It’s scary how quickly something like this can get out of control. The templates in question have been fairly popular since they debuted, so hopefully Envato will pull this guy off of the market before any more damage can be done.

I mean, to be honest, I would copy FOX somehow, because their design is just awsome. But I wouldn’t sit in front of TV, pausing every frame and copy/pasting it to after effects :D

Agreed. Its one thing to use something as inspiration. But its unacceptable to blatantly copy a design.

He didn’t even change the colors!!!

The discounted package or bundle deals is an excellent idea, and should be implemented across all of Envato.

This is just… ridiculous … Did someone report the files?

I mean last weak we had Featured File that was “copyright violation” and now featured author…

There is soooo many talented author here but we must choose a copycat :impatient:

-m.

I know, its getting extremely frustrating. It seems to be happening a lot lately.

The funniest part is one of the author’s comments in that project was: “Thanks guys… we are always trying to create something different and unique…”

Riiiiight… “different and unique”. There’s nothing unique about copying FOX .

I was suspicious about that one as well… Haven’t been able to find a reference to it though.

We have a new 1:1 copycat user. Here’s the original: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plfNZDr55hs

Wow, interesting. Again, it’d be hard to prove it’s an exact copy, but that is very, VERY similar.

Definitely worth looking into.

Webtreats sold a WordPress template 5400 times :| What is the unique price for that? What would have been their loss to sell it for 900$ . Not worth it.

Those guys over at ThemeForest are simply making an insane amount of sales! I wish I knew how to build WordPress Themes!!!

My opinion is, if a client is going to spend that much money on a project, they’ll hire a designer to create something custom for them.

Buyers come to VideoHive for the extremely affordable prices. The “Unique Licence” is a nice thought, but I don’t think it would ever work, especially in a marketplace filled with $8 and $20 projects.

How many of you have actually had a buyer purchase an Extended License on any of your projects? I’m pretty sure that most buyers don’t realize that they legally need to purchase the Extended License for some of their usage, and simply buy the regular license.
