It all started promising with this thread, a good deal of support in the way of taking real action in this matter. It came to this point where other opinions came up. In my opinion it’s an attitude of loser to embrace defeat, when the battle is already won by justice in common law. You only need to take the step further and claim your victory, if you’re a winner. If you are a loser, get out of the way or keep you mouth shut.

You are really angry. Angry minds can’t take a full perspective of any problem.
If the last sentence goes for me, i get it. Enjoy the fight!

Note: i hope you can get the useless shield badge you can see here on the left, cos is the only thing you will win on this battle. Now i keep my mouth shut. :)

If Envato can’t represent us to issue a takedown notice, it would still be better if they can form a team of people who will actively seek for the illegal file sharing and notify us about it via our marketplace profile so that we can just issue the DMCA takedown notice to those people. Of course, this would be aimed at themes for platforms such as WP, Joomla etc. and not easily-obtainable items such as HTML templates.

Right now, most of the time is spent at searching for all those links when we want to issue a takedown notice. With such team (come on, we are paying 30-50% of our income, so money shouldn’t be a big problem), we only need to spend few minutes per day to send the notices.

this is not your private forum so either chill out or refrain from opening threads when you can’t bear others sharing a different point of view.

DNP , you sound really offensive.

I am russian, was born in Ukraine and live in Hungary. Yes, russians are tricky, but if your theme was downloaded on warez website – think the way that person gave it a test drive, then he was satisfied and then he bought your theme to get a support. Fair enough. I don’t understand why are you so angry, if he eventually bought your item?

And yeah, do you really think romanians are angels? :D My 2 cents.

Kopyov FYI : you are part of our historic brothers, we have the same blood and roots, just you have been dis-nationalized and Russified. Read some history bro.

In this thread I just state a fact that some authors here confirm. Their attitude is not acceptable and I really don’t think they want to buy, they will use for free if possible and why not try to get free support even without purchase. I really need allies in finding a long term solution.

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 thought Envato is multi national community. And I really amazed, that mods are doing nothing about nationalist post in this thread…
