Many authors, steal other authors ideas/concept and give him for his work. I want to encourage them to try to be more reasonable, please respect yourself! GR visited by thousands of people every day, and if they will see that each job is very similar, we will have a bad reputation. The point, personally, I have not the money, it is more important to be human. Please, respect yourself!

Sorry for my language.

Exactly what i was thinking about today… in the last week i had to file 4 DMCA complaints on users who was “over-inspired” off my fliers designs, and sometimes they have have used my assets that i created as a design element in their work!!

Luckily Envato support were great, and all 4 items was deleted :) its pathetic how un-creative, and lazy some people can be.. they just look for the top selling items, and try to make a copy of it, without putting any thought/morality into the the whole process..

Please guys report these items. Sometimes it’s hard for us — with so many submissions — to determine whether an item has infringed any copyrights, luckily Support is very diligent with this kind of issues. :)

True say Todik, but many copy and many will…no such thing as respect these days. Everyone is after the money, even if they say they aren’t. Best solutions is to report, and keep on making unique items.

I get inspired by a lot of you guys work, even the ones I don’t comment on, but that’s were it stops. I hate to really copy or trace anything so, it would bore me to death to attempt it anyway.

The ones that steel are usually so blatant. It’s great that we can report this in order to keep the community at a high standard.

I remember one guy thought he could upload an item that someone close to me was giving away as a free item on the web. As soon as I saw it I notified my peer, and he reported it. Item deleted!

I’ve seen this so much on here. I wish people would be original, its all good to be inspired by an idea/design but to straight copy it isn’t cool, originality is key if you wish to be successful, don’t be a second rate version of somebody else.
