That would be great to be done by Envato too, it has alot more power than all of us and takes quite a large share out of our work.

Yes of course it would be great but you know how things are changing at the moment. I guess the focus are more on other “parts” at the moment. Authors can take that in their own hands – Envato could also contribute to it. But such a “foundation” could also have some more advantages. Many big companies or branches having such a system already – it’s called “union” (company union, worker union,...).

But however, it’s just a thought… :)

I decided to NEVER provide support for Russians and Russian speaking countries, because piracy is beyond my power.

:(

They all admitted they downloaded from file sharing first, and said they purchased for support, and support is not guaranteed in any case. Very bad.


I think Envato has a guy or two fighting piracy on regular basis, can anyone from Envato shed some light on this?

As you can see, it’s not enough.. I mean how does Envato business work after all? Few reviewers, few devs and a ton of cashiers… and one or two guys fighting piracy? I mean come on… Envato should be the KILLER with all the zombie sites, and all hosting companies should know us, and filter their websites or even change their policy to only allow good content and not piracy.

I don’t like we act like losers with the real losers who are the cheaters and their counterparts..

I was expecting great support from Envato, but we only get this..

All the 155 million native speaking Russians admitted to have stolen your themes? :O That’s very bad indeed! How bad people are these Russians!

All people apologising for bad EN, they are Russians, they all admitted downloading from warez, and purchased for support. It’s so easy to find them.. just 2 or 3 questions. I don’t know if 150mil Russians are like this, but my conclusion is about to get final.

As a Russian speaking person, I apologize for my bad English then. And as you can see I have a badge that says that I have purchased up to 50 items, and no, I have not stolen any of your themes. :)

You didn’t need one yet. It goes like this: I have some clients who purchased multiple licenses for many of my templates, I have great respect for them and I even provide more advanced support in their case. I have never had such a pleasure with SLAVIC / Russians people so far. I tend to think that is not possible, it’s just their culture.

I beg your pardon?! Are you implying that if I needed one of your items I would steal it just because I speak Russian? I was born in Moldova and I speak Russian, and I ensure you that in our culture they do not teach us to steal. I needed many themes and other templates for my own sites, and as you can see on my badge, I bought them! Please be careful about sayings things like these.

U’re being nationalist. What about Russians that buys your theme and asking for support? He won’t get one only because there are a lot of thieves from Russia?

What would you tell to him? “Sorry, I don’t like your culture so I won’t give you support”?
