mate, calm down. Actually I was looking now for a “romanian hooligan” video on youtube to post here but NO – that’s not the right way. But I can assure you there are plenty of them. Hooligans are everywhere and the majority of humans are animals when it comes to things like religion, politics, sports, sex or wordpress themes :-P

again, calm down, be polite. For sure everybody can understand your frustration but such things making it even more worse.

I believe pointing fingers to different races won’t solve the problem. Because not every human beings thinks the same or do the same thing. But rather instead of picking a national. And to be honest piracy is something that will exist until hell freezes unless they actually turn the internet into something else which I doubt.

So yea…All I can say is calm down and act like a professional and see for the best possible solution with the problem that you’re currently having.

Cheers

Hey Dan,

There’s some good stuff here and some bad stuff. Although i think this thread will be locked bla bla (cuz you know.. it does more bad than better, but anyway), i strongly support the fact that an action should be taken. Infuse said it pretty well, some sort of ‘author sindicate’ where we contribute for shutting down websites. I would love that and i would gladly pay.

In regards to not giving support for Russian people, i would disagree. I also had the same problem, and yes the majority were Russians, however i pay great respect to this wonderful nation and therefore i can’t generalize this or anything eles. Yes, there are good and bad. It’s your problem whom you give support and who not, but i don’t think it’s the best attitude, sorry.

All in all, action must be taken that’s for sure!!

PS: I think you’re just really nervous so i’d suggest just taking some time to calm, i’m sure you would think differently a bit more calmed :)

Thanks Marius, I take your words for good, perhaps to reconsider.

Russian is not a race, it’s a nation. I noticed just as my fellow friend and author here that they are the most to cheat, so I am calm, I am still working hard, but what for?

Let’s not slag any nation here. Every place has both good and bad people.

To answer your questions, yes we have dedicated staff members who investigate piracy. But you must remember one very important fact, we do not own your files, we only sell usage licenses on your behalf. Ultimately what that means is that we cannot send DMCA take down notices for you because we are not the creators of the files.

Piracy is a blight on the Internet and no one has yet to come up with a sure fire way of combating it. As soon as you implement a anti-piracy system there’s a work around that comes out. Just ask any major software developer and they’ll tell you the same.

Is that all Envato can do to help us? For 30-50% you charge FOR EACH AUTHOR , that is all you can do? For the thousands of hundreds or millions of dollars each month coming to your pockets from our work, that is all Envato can do? Just to remind us there is no solution yet and we have to continue to take this fight into our own ?? We don’t have to develop new items, right?

OR

ENVATO hire a team of lawyers to deal with these few websites and their hosting sites so that we can have some time to develop and not send DMCA to hosting, file sharing services EVERYDAY .

That is all I had to say, you can close the thread. Thanks

Yeah I agree with you travis, but he has a point too. We can’t just sit here and simply do nothing. Envato offers a place where authors can sell their files – so that we don’t need to setup a website, a e-commerce solution, a support-system (altough the most do anyway). But when it comes to this part every author has to fight on his/her own? If a lawyer can represent me, why can’t envato do that? Or at least TRY to find a better solution together with us authors. Or if envato really doesn’t want to invest more (time, money, energy) into this section, at least a notification to all authors should be available. Something like: “EVERY author is responsible for his stuff. Envato doesn’t take any responsibility outside of the marketplaces”. At the moment most of the authors think they’re covered anyway by envato, otherwise there wouldn’t be that much threads on the forums regarding this issue.

Not acceptable, it’s just too little.
