This time I totally agree with Doru – this all badges we have seems to mean nothing.

Anyway, it’s good this thing is cleared. Powodzenia Kuba ;)

No, this thread is like “look what crap can people do to you if they are jealous of your income” :)

no is not and let me explain why.

let’s say me and you start a business together, we share the same office and we make money for more than 3 years with no problem.

but one day some random dude enters the office and say to me how a bad, bad person you are and how you stole his duck. So what what should I do at this point?

Variant A – Scumbag me:

Throw you out from the office and then take my time to verify if the duck of the random dude is around. Then, when I’m sure is not I let you back to the office. No hard feelings, friends like before.

Variant B – Normal person:

Look around for the duck, no duck, kick out the random dude from our office.

I see your point, I wonder why so few people took part in the discussion…

First I did a little research and I found this http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/115/64/a-dmca-takedown-notice-has-been-issued-against-my-item

My question is if Envato immediately takes the item down or it does some basic research before?

Is there in the DMCA something that forces you to take the item down without questions?

@mpc do you get a copy of the DMCA ? Shoot an invoice for lost sales to the DMCA initiator lol. I thought there were some serious problems you could get into by issuing an incorrect DMCA notice.

@doru that has to be the worst analogy ever.

No disrespect but ..

With regard to DMCA . and @MPC so you know who filed the complaint ? Weird if you do .. but if you dont , then perhaps that person had a genuine grivance or concern.

I am not defending such things, but Envato cannot step in and police the matter.

Surely, the item MUST be taken down for general purchase and circulation pending an enquiry, irrespective of the effect it has on you financially. Thats the way it works. For the very same reasons, that say AUTHOR B ) releases a virtual copy of an item you made, and you complained to Envato.. you wouldnt want a hasty decision made that could affect you too.

I think a week or two is very quick to come to a decision, in this case positive for you. But in many instances I reckon had you not been a MOD , and a prevelant author, you may well be looking at considerably longer, and you have come out of it relatively unscathed. ALbeit a few sheckles down!

Least you have your integrity intact.
