Maybe you want to contact the author in question first and try to get to an arangement, like him taking the theme down or him paying you a percentage of the theme or a flat fee. Directly involving lawyers and a court seems a bit excessive to me and wastes court time better spent on other cases. I understand your frustration but talking first seems like a better approach. Maybe he really didnt see your item, i didnt check the popular files for half a year and i sure would be grateful if someone would contact me first in this case instead of directly giving me the court hammer.

Yes seeking advice always seems to be a waste time. I believe that to be sands in the eyes. This why we compromise on so many things. I strongly don’t believe he didn’t see my template.

I believe he saw the template. Even new users follow the top sellers charts. But that is my opinion.

Let’s call that a sense of mine. So i will seek legal advice.

Let me tell you a story dear friend. I had a problem with a mobile communcation provider. Everybody told me it will be a waste of time to seek legal advice and that i will not win. Well guess what, i did seek legal advice and i won. I was paid back, including damages.

So this is not a waste of time. I will try to consider the human part and contact the author, but if the approach doesn’t work i will not back down.

Thank you for your time to comment.

Good luck waiting like months to decide such a thing. And, if crying here is all you can do, that’s pretty bad. If someone stole your template, fill in a DMCA to envato support and stop crying on the forums.

Nobody is crying FinalDestiny, oh by the way you wanted to make Synergy with me for WP. So related to the post dear friend. Is it a copy or not. Is it too similar or not. Do you have the time to answer that?

Cheers,

Alright feel free, just thought you could do this through envanto not a court of law.

Seeing as there are thousands and thousands of close templates

Not like this template and Synergy. That is way to close to make it thousands. The court will decide that. :D

The buyers will give you, Ben and also the author exactly the sales you will deserve. There is a circle in this life dear Ben that pays everyone the way they did things. And by this i am supporting all authors that create things on themeforest and work for it, spend months for improving and development.

And also, i am an author here on envato and have almost 3 years of experience here and i can see when someone just copies an idea or as in your friend case or your partner copies an entire template and makes 20% adjustments.

Good Luck with Sales. I am betting that the template won’t sell as it should :) See you after 1 week of sales. :)

Supporting all authors that work hard on all the templates and fighting against all other authors that just seek rapid growth by copying others.

He is not my partner, I am not in anyway affiliated with him.

If you think he’s stolen it, report him, stop bitching and whining about it.

Don’t patronize me I understand the work that goes into a template, and I would never steal a theme, I was just giving you a different look at it, that you obviously don’t care about.

I do support all authors that put the hard work in, but it’s a lot easier to support them when they have a good attitude.
Yes I’d be more than annoyed if someone stole my theme and tried reselling it, but if someone suggested going to envanto support instead of crying about it, I wouldn’t attack them.

Hi Ben,

I am not worried, dear Ben, already purchased the template, and i will seek legal advice. My right is to sue a person when i think have a strong reason. This is my right and no person can take that from me.

I have purchased and make screenshoots, also recorded the screen to have a point in animations and the similar functionality and will seek legal advice.

If i am right or not the court will judge that.

All in all this boils down to which attracts buyers more and which has more popularity. Which is why I mentioned every authors wants a piece of the pie chart, but in the end if you plan on just wasting time to get just that piece then you’re wasting your time really. Instead of just recreating a clone try to come up with more features or something else :).

I follow your comments with great interest on other posts and i am really proud when i see other users against this hunt for the piece of the pie chart with copies of other templates.

In the end the buyer will filter all of this authors and I am sure that the ones that put effort in creating something ( not copying ) will remain here.

“We’re Making” could also mean they’re discussing the individual themes they’re making personally, calm down, Ben is only trying to offer some opinion. Contact Support => That is always the best way for things like this, not attacking forum members! :)
I am not attacking, but first Ben said that he knew the author and the author created from scratch. That is a sneaky lie. If i am wrong then so be it.
Please don’t call me a liar. All I know is that he sent me revisions of the theme he was making and it started off and it wasn’t even working

I have, however I do know the author and I know he’s made it from scratch, I kept giving him little reviews through the process, however I don’t know where he’s got his ideas from

I think you are kidding, from scratch? If Synergy wasn’t in Top Weekly Sellers i couldn’t say anyhting. But my template has been there for 2 months, exactly from start so i say it is a very big chance that your so called “friend” made a copy of my template in terms of design and animations.

Anyway i already contacted my lawyer and i will sue him. I need to know what is the procedure for themforest.

I’m not joking, I only know him through here and we talk on facebook about new themes we’re making.
He showed me it a month ago when the homepage didn’t even work
I’m not saying he didn’t copy you, I’m trying to stay very safe here, he might have taken your work as an idea and worked with it in mind.

I think suing would be the wrong idea, you could just contact support with enough evidence to get it taken down? Think if every author that thought their theme was being copied sued the person? There’d be more lawyers than authors on this marketplace

“We’re making” – So you are involved too. That is good to know. That is why you are defeding him. And please spare me the comment “created from scratch”. Synergy template is in first 5 places for 2 months already and i hardly believe you didn’t know about the look alike.

Hi Guys,

There is a template in the first row on Site Templates that is copying without a shame my template:

1) Start animation of menu from the left to the right
2) Home – Same structure page as my Home Layout 2
3) Portfolio – After you click the thumbs on both portfolio’s there is a similar resemblance of his preview with mines 4) Gallery: Similar preview animation and positioning

The whole feeling is just is poor copy of my Synergy template. Can you please take a look and tell me if i am right? It is now in the first row of Site Templates. I need help in what to do in this case.

Thank you!
Cheers,
Mediacreed

Am i right? or is just my feeling. Have you looked at the my template and the one in the first row from on Site Templates?
