Hello everyone,

I’ve received an email from one of my buyer about a weird copyright issue ; I don’t know what to do, this is why I would like to share with you guys the email and I’m seeking for suggestions.

Hello,

I am emailing you regarding another person claiming they own and have copyright of all sales of MAC Hosting template, after talking to him he states to me you stole his idea. He also stated you used to work for him and when he was designing this idea he submitted it to you to look at and you stole everything from him. But after me looking at all of his websites the quality does not match up-to the quality of this template.

He has contacted my hosting provided because i was using the template i purchased from here on my hosting site and has had it suspended due to copyright reasons claiming he owns 100% of the images and code.

His Website is: http://www.waterfieldinternet.com/

Email me back ASAP !

Regards Liam Norris

The persons claiming they own and have copyright of all sales of this template is not telling the truth. I don’t know this guy, I’ve never worked for this company and nothing was stilled from this company. The code is 100% mine, the template is 100% my own creation.

Item URL : http://themeforest.net/item/hosting-company-template/63506

Cheers!

I think, he is just wanting to make a full you and earn some bucks from you. Here’s WHOIS info about this web site: click here. You see, it’s a dummy text. I think he buyed your template or downloaded it for free, made some changes to layout and tried to make some money.

So nevermind that and relax :)

Regards, Alex

Ask that @$$hole for the purchase code he got from TF. He most likely downloaded it from somewhere else and you can sue his ass (if you want to).

Also, tell your buyer to contact his hosting company and show them that he bought it here, because that phony douche has nothing to prove it’s his work.

And by the way, Simon, when will you update the slider on this theme? You know… the IE issue… :)

Good luck!

Probably he downloaded the template from your preview page – one more reason to use html encryption. Will do that very soon for my items.

Perhaps you can contact the the hosting company of the idiot thief and make them shut down HIS hosting account for stealing the item from you:-)

Eye for an eye:-)
