You can’t fight them this way – others outlined why.

Plus, I can’t remember any marketplace that does this to its buyers. Even for nasty buyers, is there a place where this idea works?

Maybe if it were like Paypal, where your account is connected to so much personal info… otherwise these ‘sharers’ would just do as it was mentioned.

P. S. : I simply love your like to download, awesome job on that :)

I this is a good idea, especially for those competitors who buy my items for “inspiration”.
It will not make much difference, they will just open an another account to do that, also not a big issue to consider anyway. The worst problem I see is if competitors enter into item comment section requesting some alien features, repeatedly! There is an easier way to handle though, it is just saying big “Not Possible” :)

The worse scenario already happened, a user purchase, makes a ton of support requests, then give you lowest rating, and finally request withdrawal.

Such users should be tracked and taken down.

Take a look at IP.Board, they have own DRM + some files are encoded with Zend Guard, actually 99% of hosting companies have installed Zend Optimizer module so I thing that Envato should have own DRM too.

Thank you :D

Yes this was just my two cents, I know there are a few Envato buyer accounts on here that I would love to ban from my items but it’s obviously a pipe dream, just wanted to stir the pot :reallyevil:
