I know “forums is not the appropriate place to discuss this”, but what shall I do when support doesn’t even read my message but just replies with “remove the content”.

I did not “steal” anything (in terms of using other peoples content) and I have enough proof for it, but you anyway never asked for it.

So the question is just, can someone claim copyright on very basic technics like extruded 3D Logos???

Can I now go ahead and let envato remove all logo packs on videohive that have been uploaded after my first logo pack has been approved? Because it is MY IDEA???

(actually it isn’t, but maupa didn’t invent extruded logos either)

This is not right, this is not a discussion between me and envato as you don’t give me a chance to explain myself, this is simply an order and I still don’t know who filed this order. I’m not talking to persons that have anything to do with videohive or are motion graphic artists or know anything about after effects techniques (so it seems), they are support people who just do their job.

In the end I will have to remove the content you don’t like, as there is no option, but this is just so sad.

doesn’t really matter anymore, maupa contacted me and he sees it as “his file”. I agree, it’s quite similiar, cause it is a very basic 3D Extrusion Logo. Didn’t know someone could copyright that, but it’s like “first come first serve”...

There’s definitely a grey area here, especially with authors claiming similar-looking files as “copyrighted”. Because of my Elegant Extrusion project, if I claimed that I had a “copyright” on extruded logos and asked for them all to be removed from the marketplace, that would be crazy, right?

I can see the similarity between your project and Maupa’s. But I can see a similarity between Elegant Extrusion and every other extruded logo project that came into existence afterwards. But I don’t think that gives me the right to claim copyright infringement. Seems to me as though this copyright thing is getting out of hand.

We reviewers are simply authors who have access to the queue. That’s about the extend of our influence! :)

You might be wrong with that :) I asked support to include you reviewers in the discussion about the item in question and they already told me they have handed it over to you. So now you DO have influence :)
