My dear fellow authors and valued buyers. Let me tell you a story…

Somebody stole part of our template/theme branding (our “M” template/theme) and created a “brand new” theme which he sells on the other marketplace (the one with green mascot).

Although the 99% of his template is different from our design, he shamelessly used our “M” item logo and our description images. The funniest thing is that he didn’t even used his own hosting for those images, he just copied the URLs from our item description.

We just couldn’t resist:)

If you have decrypted “green monster” marketplace name and our item’s name, you can look for it live (if it is still up there).

For others, here is the screenshot.

So there is no necessity of DMCA or any take down efforts. ;)

But you can contact the author and ask them to replace images with something else!

Once someone copied my item’s title (of around 50 letters) which is an unique name with more than 6 words. I requested the author to change it slightly but nothing happened! :D
