Is the script still working?. When I visit the statements page I can not see anything regarding Dashboard plus.

UPDATE: it works fine with my Chrome but not FF

Hi there,

Now one user is asking me for the updated version of the script and provided me with his purchase code

Although this purchase code was validating ( according to my records) it is no more validating and also checking the user profile page it now gives not found

what does this mean ?. Should I send the author the update?

Hi mate!
  • You can use this tools :
  1. FreshKiller – Let’s group together and give them hell !!!
  2. DMCA Sender – free plugin helping you protect your products
I used the first one it’s working good.
But i can’t understand how the second one working.
Good luck!

Thanks for the advice. FreshKiller seems promising but unfortunately I’m not a Windows user.

DMCA Sender seems to work well but it lacks some features like logging and better user interaction but at all it gets the job done.

DMCA Sender – free plugin helping you protect your products

Not so difficult: add your Envato items through the interface, setup your data and then add links.
The plugin will send DMCA, of course is not possible to check them automatically, but is a good way to keep trace of already reported links and check progresses

I quote also Firsh about Google SERP

I have tried and it works in sending DMCAs. but I found no log to check what was sent to where. or list of hosts emails. but I received replies from hosts that they removed some files and found the hosts list among the plugin files.

Thanks for the awesome plugin :)

I have a feeling they submit your files and then send you their own link saying “look what we just found”. If you show any interest, they’ll keep doing it, just so they have “something to remove”. You can battle the organic results if you wish. There are some sites that don’t comply to DMCA. The best would be to file DMCA directly to Google with Chilling Effects, though you need a company if you don’t wish to publish your personal information (notices to Google are public).

Thanks :)

Hi authors,

Every now and then, I get quotes via email from guys that promise to keep removing violating links by sending DMCA daily to found links

Have you ever tried any kind of this service? what do you suggest?

I’m lazy in these kind of jobs to do myself

Hi authors,

Some days ago, I have noticed by chance that there is a PHP script listed at CodeCanyon that is very similar in functionality to one of my wordpress plugins.

I have suspected that this script may have used some of my code as the script behaviour was too close

I have downloaded the item and viewed the code and found that the user copied/pasted lot’s of my code and adapted to his script

I rushed to send a DMCA notice to Envato and they put the file down. days after I got a notification from Envato again that they will get the file back as they received a DMCA counter notice where the author swear he didn’t copy/use my code

I provided a very simple screenshot that I expect it may clearly shows that code was copied, but Envato told me they are still obliged to return the file back and I must hire a lawer and take official measurements

Here is the screenshot I have sent

Larger Image

Do you think that the code was copied? or am I blind?.

this is not the only copied code but just a shot

one funny thing that the user didn’t remove the code to strip shortcodes. his script is not a wordpress plugin and so he don’t need to strip shortcodes. is not that an evidence

If this user has asked me to use the code, I won’t mind but I’m really disappointed to see my work stolen and used in CC itself

I have fight various violations outside Envato but I didn’t expect this case.

Have you ever meet this case before with one of your items? should I accept the case? I will not definitely hire a lawyer for such a case.
