This is more of a feature request.. Is there any way we can build something into files so that it identifies which user originally purchased it? Just thinking out loud..
Someone who is promoting [link removed] is distributing apps from Envato… I checked my demo chat logs and someone from that site is promoting the warez.. his ip address is [name removed]
Who flagged this and why? It wasn’t even remotely inappropriate… it was probably one of the pirates
I flagged it because it contained a link to the website with pirated content, and that is not so smart on public forums
Don’t worry, someone from staff will check it out sooner or later.
My opinion on your question: you can’t stop pirating of items, it has been discussed many times. You will only hurth real buyers and those that pirate are not your buyers anyway, even if they can’t pirate it (which is pretty much impossible).
As long as the information gets to the right place.. Thanks for shedding some light on the subject
Hi Endat, Personally I understand the frustration of authors AND buyers regarding such links. I just bring to Envato support thousands of illegal links (dozen of thousands?) that come from illegal websites. In my investigations to help the community, I even came across a file with 2500 direct downloads links still valid (Graphicriver items). And another list with 600 direct links to download illegally VideoHive products. I really do not like this kind of reporting, but I think such lists are truly **... Even if this “fight” seems useless. I think it is only an appearance. Something more smart is to find those who redistribute. This is more efficient, isn’t it ?
This is what I stated in the original post.. that determining the origin would be helpful at finding the users responsible.
