Why do you guys dare to judge if it’s a copyright violation or not ? Open a support ticket is the right thing for sure.
And for “what is artistry and what not” : that is a question everyone has to answer for them self. In my opinion art has almost no boundaries and we life in the 21st century where digital re-use and abuse and so on is a legitimate practice as long as it’s NOT violating any law, and therefore again : Let Envato or Big Fish Audio judge about that and not in the Forum !
Drop of sales ? One possible reason : http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/search-engine-for-authors-portfolio-broken-/119784
everytime my sales drop more than 50% of the average monthly income, i try to find a reason for that. In the last few months many times a “search engine” thread poped up in the forums and some impacts on a few peoples sales have been reported.
This time the search engine does not work on the Authors Portfolio, so customers wont be able to search within our portfolios (except on the ones where authors created soem sort of their own quick find solution).
Does anyone else have this problem, and if yes since when ?
This has been requested soooo many times and Envato stated it “could” be added someday. I’m here now since 4 Years
I don’t know why someone flagged my above post with the list of the 650+ files contained in the pirated package ? Htere was NO link to the site, nor any name of the site etc. So if anyone wants to check this package, drop me a pm and i’ll send the list over.
Doru – the files are REAL and no scam, and my post did NOT mention the warez site. This site does also NOT appear in Google search result if you use any of the file names.
And i won’t argue here any longer about this issue, people can contact me if they care …
Don’t want to create a faq/walktrough here regarding piracy but as trivia: certain website are located in countries where certain laws don’t apply. So sending DMCAs is pointless and a lost of time and resources for authors and envato.
This might apply to most warez sites and the posts / threads where the links to the actual files are posted.
BUT the files itself are hosted on servers from companies located in countries like : Switzerland, Germany, Cyprus etc. and do remove reported / pirated files usualy within 24-48 hours (from my experience).
And as a side note :
Did anyone ever think, how one individual can collect thousands of VH AE templates and AJ tracks ?
Warez sites are for people who will never pay for your file, even if you obliterate every next piracy site you come across. Those people are not buyers, so you should not be concerned about it. If someone is serious about their work they will buy your file appropriately and won’t even think about piracy, so you’re not using buyers, practically
You are right of course, but this is not like a warez site where i find a few occasional Envato files, but a huge collection with thousands of files for imediate download which is just not good if these are online for too long !
i know that this isn’t something new, and postings like this will be banned / blocked by mods. But i have found thousands of Envato Marketplace files on one single warez site and asking myself why these are online since quite a while without having them removed by Envato ?
I’m really concerned about the financial loss for all of us authors by this fact. There are various collections to download containing 650+ Videohive AE templates in one single file. The files are online there since 6 months and more, so we can only imagine how many times they have been downloaded and re-shared since then.
If anyone is concerned if one of your files is included there, please fell free to contact me by pm and i’ll send you a list with the files in these warez collections.
I will post any news here if i hear from Envato, or when the files have been taken offline. In case the thread won’t be closed for sure
p.s. i have sent a support ticket with all the necessary informations.
