effective solutions to reveal… the pirated products
Lol, wish that was as easy at it sounds. And how many hours per day you’d be willing to devote to that task if you had let’s say 10 digital products here? Also take into considertation this scenario – you make a product, they upload it into warez sites. Let’s take the same scriptmafia. I sent a DMCA notice for one of our HTML themes and guess what? They took it down, then someone uploaded it again and there was a new wave of downloads. Should I have left it intact, it wouldn’t get “popular” once again )
Another traveler here!
Thanks for your input and suggestions. Could you please e-mail me at email@example.com with more detailed information on the domains of interest (niches) and some examples so we could have better idea on what you’re looking for? We could use this information for our upcoming themes and it would be beneficial for both parties I believe.
As much as I hate how Envato handles our concerns sometimes, I really can’t agree on this one. The warez websites are growing like mushrooms and to send DMCA in all cases, Envato should have a team of 10+ members (experts in the field of machine learning, AI etc.. which is a very high paid job) exclusively dedicated to developing effective solutions to reveal and take down the pirated products sold in Envato and it would turn out to be more expensive then just letting them be.
I approvech this template! Close the forums.
There are many such authors I think. Elite with a few quality admin templates – http://themeforest.net/user/Kopyov/portfolio?WT.ac=portfolio_item&WT.z_author=Kopyov
Even without the ability to reply, this is still a good idea to make them visible. After reading the reviews the user can decide if an item with 3 star rating is good or not.
No it’s not. From our experience, 90% of 1-star raters don’t read the documentation nor they ever contact for support and I suspect that any of the authors here would be happy to have 9 subjective negative ratings shown against one objective, even if that last one is helpful for the buyer in some way.
In this matter, better get with ideas on how to raise buyer awareness, many buyers think they buy it from Envato directly and not some author, you might have noticed it from many support questions opened in general forum.
About $40 000. But you should rather focus on having your first item approved, as having too much expectations often leads to a big disappointment:) There are 3700 ThemeForest authors with at least 1 sale and only 1000 of them have passed 1000 sales (and it took often years for many of them to achieve this). So, with hundreds (or maybe thousands?) of aspiring authors who never get approved each year, having a 1000 sales with $58 theme is a BIG achievement. It is ok to dream big, but you should be a little bit realistic at the same time:)
But the guy apparently starts from zero so it’s 50% share initially. For $40.000 out of $58.000 he has to be an elite author.
Elon Musk – The guy behind Tesla Motors, SpaceX and Paypal. Looking at what he does brings this feeling that nothing’s impossible and even a single person can change the world.
With the current system, there’s NOTHING you can do about it. And the only answer from Envato to the myriads of such threads is the regular “We know it’s an issue but we have to rethink the whole system”. We’ve asked Envato millions of times to provide at least any means to contact the buyer back, but no. So my advice is, just forget about that, if something ever changes with this, it will be like in 1-2 years I guess, considering how the new features are introduced and prioritized nowadays…
