Hi guys,

Today we were just exploring some creative web templates on themeforest as well as another marketplace [name removed]. There, we are astonished to see the exact web template which is being sold well on themeforest under an ‘exclusive author’ profile (surprisingly an elite author).

No offense to the author (indeed we like their work). May be some person is cheating this author by stealing his great work and uploading it on the other site. There are chances for this.

But if it is not, we wonder, if there are people who does NOT care about Exclusive Agreements, simply tricking the entire system of exclusive authors on themeforest. Or, is this way of selling is permitted here nowadays??

Hope to have some thoughts from you guys.

Aaaah..to make things serious, the same person (on other marketplace) is selling another most popular web template from themeforest (which is also done by an exclusive author, but another guy). This seems to be a case of stealing of popular templates from themeforest and selling it on another popular marketplace (not any warez sites).

Envato staff should really check this. They can only prevent it because we are not the author of these works and we are not having any rights to file a DMCA.

If envato support team need more info about this, please let us know – we will send you the exact URL and template info privately.

There are also some other authors, they are unbelievably releasing the same design almost every time. True story. When I say “the same” , I mean it. Really.

We agree 100%. There are things happening like this :( Envato should do something to stop them.

Yes, they are stealing my (our) money, releasing exactly the same design over and over again every week, crowding the marketplace.
