I wonder how many times does the bank allow him to do that? He could create an account for each theme he purchases, ask support for 3 months build his website, ask his money bank and then start over.
Maybe envato should also block certain cc numbers and paypal emails not only accounts.
Are DMCA requests against affiliates that promote themeforest items allowed? according to http://themeforest.net/legal/author
25. Other authors and affiliates’ use of your item: An Envato affiliate can use your item thumbnail previews in their promotion of the Marketplaces and no compensation is due for these uses. A fellow author may also use a watermarked preview of your item in a preview of their own Marketplaces item without requiring your permission and without compensating you. The other author must credit you by providing a link to your item on our Marketplaces.
If promoting items on behance is ethical or not is a different problem and is up to behance to allow it or not but this is not a copyright breach to use DMCA.
I welcome any affiliate to use any of my items to promote them anywhere they wish if it doesn’t break any legal terms or does not bring any prejudice.
Competition is very big and authors that live in countries with low cost of living afford giving a lot of services for the little price of a theme, this is globalization and it will not change.
Think about it like this, html is not just a string is markup (code) and you need to keep it clean for easier maintenance so unless you have a very small html with one or two tags then always keep your html separate like in example 1.
Php was born as a template language for html, to add small bits of dynamic content to html, so inserting small php code into html and not the other way around is by design, it’s in his dna.
Congrats! Hope it didn’t happen like this
I have an ikea desk http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S99869218/ and I like the adjustable legs and the simple design.
