Please Check out this user profile: [name removed] , his last Coming Soon Template is all the same as our earlier published template. Exactly 1:1 stolen, what do you think guys?

Maybe I’m wrong.

You should feel good. It’s a great feeling to be copied, because that way you know, that you’ve done really great job.

On topic: source is different, design looks almost like an identical copy. Tho, dont know if you can do anything about that :)

IMO, all Coming Soon Template have common features. It’s difficult to come up with something new in this.

One thing is when you copied, the other one is when you work is stolen and sold. I think he might do that, but then he should buy an Extended Licence.

So are layouts of 2 of your themes. In that case your last template shouldn’t be approved as it’s layout is same as layout of carbonneutral. You’re just being paranoic :P

Well maybe because I’m an author of both templates?

It is clearly a copy of the visual look. What to do is up to you. Depends on what you want. Contact the author and tell him your concerns or contact support to file a DMCA. As a buyer I am becoming more concerned about these copyright issues as it seems as an illness tot the Forest :-(

It’s because they are different, so is [name removed] template. Just because layout looks like layout of your template, doesn’t mean it’s a copy. If you take a look at templates here on TF, you’ll see that many of them have similar layouts and that is normal. Just chill & have a beer ;)
