I really appreciate for this thread!
I want to share the details of the story with you. I’ve found a web site that has a good location on google search results, it’s been directly sharing our files and hosted by godady. Sent a DMCA and the site is suspended now!
I’d like to share my methods with you;
If you found a web site that directly shares your files from it’s own server space, you need to find it’s hosting first to send your DMCA . To do that; - go to http://www.iptools.com/ or a similar one - use “Resolve Host” tool - then use Whois Lookup (IP) tool - When you find the network name or hosting provider domain name - use “Abuse Contact Lookup” form to find the abuse contact address of the service provider
If you found your file on a download site; They usually hide their abuse contact address and wants you fill a DMCA form. Visit the web site and find the form, it might be in contact, abuse, dmca, support etc.
If you think the warez site that you found, generates income from google AdSense, use this form to report google https://support.google.com/adsense/bin/request.py?hl=en&contact_type=violation_report&rd=2 They usually reply back in about 10 days.
Here is the format I use, have copied from the freshkiller and sending by manually for each link Download .DOC file
Any additions, corrections are highly appreciated!
Please just keep fighting!

DanyDuchaine saidIt seemed fine to use it for our themes. But it’s a resource hungry script and it give us a lot of support requests. We ditched it in our new theme. Forget about it. I did not use optionthree but i think that add_image_size function works just fine with any uploaded file inside wordpress.
About timthumb, is it so bad to use it? What would be the best solution to resize an image uploaded via optiontree?
forget the timthumb! I’m removing from all my themes by one by. timthumb = too many support request
<?php if ($slide['image']==true) : ?> do that <?php else:?> else do that <?php endif;?>

Hey Guys, I would appreciate an invite
It’s a great tool! I’ve integrated my framework for testing and worked well, but i will wait for a while to update my themes.
Also I’m not sure it’s the best solution, I always thought that simple notification by sending email to buyers after theme is updated would be enough.+1 for sending email notifications
