That SOB totally stole your TF template. If you take a closer look on the post-it on his template you clearly see he erased the “lorem ipsum” you placed there. Plus some of the elements that he placed there (live support online) look like they were thrown with a shovel.

Probably he did this to make you lose your credibility and your clients (envy).

I think your client should talk to the web hosting company and let them know what that joker did.

Hope this helps.

EDIT :@layeredpixels, first dcma and d-bag then contact your customers hosting company and send them the link to the material here as well as your business info explaining that the customer purchased the templet from you and its your work

Probably a “web designer” modified your theme for this guy and he never told him that he was getting a commercial theme.

Jonathan01 can tell you more about this he had a similar situation a while ago. :)

He has probably bought the template and wants to be the only one using it. So he makes a copyright claim, the item is removed from TF and he is now the original and somewhat only owner of the theme at only 15$.

I have another copyright issue story to tell you also about one of my GR items. But I’m waiting on Support’s answer first. It will be mind-fu.. oops …. blowing :))))
