This isn’t directed at any individual, just my own thought.
Repeated copyright infringements open Envato up to legal action/lawsuits from copyright holders, so it’s very important that authors RTFM and not break copyright laws, especially repeatedly. If it were my company I’d terminate an author for first offense and not even give a second chance.
IP rights and copyright issues are very serious, people get fined huge amounts of money for breaking the law in the USA/Canada/Australia/UK, so content sites like this one are required to monitor and police their content to avoid DMCA/copyright related claims, legal issues and other problems.
I think Envato is very clear on what’s allowed and what’s not, they’ve taken a lot of time to do that. Authors how many times do you guys need to be told, copyright is serious, and copying / taking other people’s content is Bad. And a fireable offense, as it should be. Just sayin.
Also from a buyers’ standpoint, I don’t want to use a project I’ve bought here, and then get a DMCA/legal takedown notice from a copyright holder of someone who saw a video I made unknowingly that had copied content. If I got any hassle like that from an original rights owner, I’d need to pursue legal remedies from Envato. So Envato’s correct in terminating repeat offenders of copyright violations.
Authors is there any other “Dos and Don’ts” guidelines you need from Envato, that they havent’ already made crystal clear? Or, do you want to play the “hope I don’t get caught” game, and then whine when you get caught and fired? Be honest. And ethical. Respect copyright 110% or it ends badly…
and trying to start new accounts, everything’s IP tracked right? so everyone knows what’s going on
I’d be sad since I already have a sony 55” one…
i think bundles are bad; I used to buy them but realized I didn’t use most of what was included anyways. prices are already low here, maybe use bundles as a bonus, like “spend $200 and get a free $19 bonus pack included” or whatever… in general though i don’t think they’re good

+1 thx, trying to get a handle on new compression techniques, it helps
hi felt, thanks—good idea re clearing the cache, I had a recent bsod so it likely has some corrupted cache files, good catch… I’ll clear it and defrag, hopefully that’ll clear it up.. and/or test making the cache on a different drive, to clear the buffer/location… the png outputs are fine, just mov/avis are corrupted now… thanks as always
Could Envato really try something new except of the bundles?! VideoHive authors asking for some crucial features since 2010. E.G. Video Rollovers, better and improved video player,...etc. “Inventing” something like a rollover (mouse) player shouldn`t be a nuclear physic to you guys. All your competitors sites have that feature. And you should pay more attention to the authors themselves and they requests, not only $$$. Peace.
hilarious, there’s some funny videos now:
(that’s not my petition, I read about it on the adobe forum).
Action item: if you don’t own CS6 already, I’d buy it ASAP since they may very well likely take it off the market soon, with no warning. Buy CS6 now. (remember I said this, we’ll check back in a couple years on the forum and you’ll see)
