Hi there, Iam working on a pvt ltd company here as a graphic designer Here i found some of channels using videohive files are using for their promos I have found that they are dowloading them from filesharing websites and displaying it on their channel. I can prove by capturing the channel videos. Is it leagal. Because here we videohive authors spends lots of time for projects and they are downloading and put it on air with out extended license. I would like to take other authors advice before contacting the support plz comment on it

some of my colleague said he has seen that the person in that channel every day searches for the new videohive files and downloads it from the file sharing sites like rs,fs, and so on and the company does not invests that much of amount for the extended license i know that because iam from the same field.

Go to that person and try to explain it to him. If your aproach is correct he will get it if no, then you will need something more drastical.

And ofcourse open up the support ticket about it.

Hello Bobbaanil, unfortunately there’s always going to be people that try to game to the system. Regardless of how rock-bottom our prices already are.

Either way, we don’t actually allow the discussion of illegal file usage and piracy on our forums. I’m going to lock this thread down to prevent any further messages. But urge you to create a ticket through our support system and provide any details and information you have regarding the issue and let our support staff see if they can somehow rectify the situation.

Thanks!
