Hello,

I’ve been contacted by a user to let me know one of my templates is being sold illegally elsewhere.

What course of action would you recommend? I’ve sent a DMCA to the site in question (the email bounced) so have sent one to their host.

Does Envato provide any guidence on this?

Thanks

I wrote about a tool for obfuscating HTML , JS and CSS code a while back.

I think it’s useful for the previews of HTML templates sold here.

I don’t think so, my template is being sold as an social engine addon. (I’m not familar with the platform)
