felt_tips says right.

As for me is very impeding national mentality (or me personal)))) to disrespect others with their ideas, and as a result of weak own ideas!

So what about similarities? I’m working on a template at the moment, and when I went to search for a category for it, to my alarm, I noticed that the name, genre and the broad concept are close to work by another author. This wasn’t deliberate, but it’s possible -even probable – that I had subconsciously remembered the other work. The design and animation is completely different, but nevertheless, I decided to send it to the author in question and seek his blessing. Out of courtesy. It would have been very annoying for me, but I was prepared to scrap or rework the project if necessary.

Big words that demonstrate ethics and respect for their profession.

I just found this : [removed] which seems pretty similar to one of my projects : http://videohive.net/item/clean-moves/2475173
Is this kind of copy allowed on Videohive or should I take action?

I don’t see it as a copy.The style is just too general for anyone to claim as their own.

I would guess that that author has seen your file.

The text, color, layout and even name of the file is more or less identical, as is the graphical motif of the line. This is unlikely to be coincidence. It’s the name and the graphical motif that are the clincher.

The problem that you’re going to have, is that the design is rather minimal and generic. You haven’t gone out on a limb with a really unusual design. So I agree that the other author has probably copied your file and it is a little too close for comfort, but he/she has changed enough for you to have a hard time claiming it as a facsimile of your own design work. Funny thing is that if they’d changed the color, gone for a completely different typeface or dropped the line motif, it would have been unrecognizable.

I think this is unlikely to be detrimental to your sales.

I removed the link, as you’re not supposed to call out individual authors on the forums.
