I’m firing up the marketplace today and I see a new item approved from an author I’m follow. This item is on the same style and idea of what I’m currently working on. Even the colors and the general style.

We don’t know each other, never saw his item before upload and he didn’t saw mine. There is no copyright infringement of any kind. Nothing bad :) just strange coincidences

If I will upload the item now I’m sure some will think and believe I’ve got inspired from him.

Great
Now that’s matter of luck too, that he uploaded his project first and get approved.

What if both the guys felt the same? :D

4 years back, I was in the same situation, it was a top seller and I didn’t upload mine due to copyright fear.

Yeah, I’ve had this several times myself, both with designs and names. Like you said, it’s just an unfortunate coincidence. Time to switch things up and keep going :)

yep. And others will think you did open this thread just to make them believe otherwise. but, since you didn’t, i’d not give a single f**k about them and upload it nonetheless.

It is a surprise in any marketplace except ThemeForest; where I guess no matter what you create, someone already did what someone creates as new. :D

4 years back, you had a bestseller and we all tried (and failed) to get your spot. So you deserved it (yeah, i’m still envious about it)

well I will change the colors and the animation and the technique is clearly different since his item works in a software version where it was not possible to do what I’m doing with my template.

But I was really curios if someone had the same experience as me. :)
