My question is somewhat relevant. How do you guys deal with people removing the “design by me”?

Well, in this case all support questions are referred to the ‘designer of the theme’.

Just kidding :-)

Many theme buyers are professionals who create websites for their clients. I don’t mind if they change the copyright. They paid for the template, and they can do whatever they want with it.

The other thing that happens all the time:

  • Buyer buys theme
  • 1 hour later comes an email: how can I change background color in CSS (or similar)
  • The signature of email: John Doe – Big Words Web Design Professionals Company

:P

So long as they don’t actually e-mail you asking how to remove it haha. Good luck on getting me to respond to that one.
