@Parker – I think I will contact the Author.
@campuscodi – Thanks for a detailed answer. Things are much clear to me now.
As an exclusive author here, i need clear rules to take my decisions
I expect envato to enforce them and take any necessary action against those who break them.
i can provide shots or code to backup my claims but being requested to send a DMCA takedown notice sounds pretty much like “let’s take us out of troubles first” kind of behavior
Yesterday, I found one of the recently released themes using some icon/graphics that I had custom created for one of my themes (already released). I have contacted the support staff along with clear proofs of the plagiarized icons. The staff has requested a signed DMCA notice so that they can take down the item and freeze the funds.
I was expecting the staff to tell that Author to remove those graphics or take down the item if not followed upon instructions. The DMCA notice is something I do not want to jump in. Further, I do not want to stretch the matter to that extent when it can be resolved within the decision power of Marketplace Authorities.
What should I do next? Should I contact the Author and ask him to take down those icons? Do I have to resolve this on my level?
Congratulations and welcome Siddharth.
Congrats Monika. Thanks Jami for providing this opportunity. All the best.
I am looking for someone to draft me on Dribbble. I have tweeted you a sample. Hope I get selected.
I tweeted you about this. Did you checked the @mention?
