I have emailed you to see if I can help.

Be sure the Author you’re complaining about has this icon on their profile:

If they’re missing this icon, it means they’re non-exclusive.

@martinjamez:

I think I have seen (probably) the same person doing exactly what you described. I put in a support request with links to their GR portfolio, their Dribbble account and the other marketplace in question tying it all together and haven’t heard anything back – it’s been about 5 days now. Each day that passes they’re getting more and more money from the 2 places, so I’m a little upset at how long it is taking, to be honest.

But yes, if you see things like this, you should be doing it for the envato rules, not for the new badge ;)

Martin, if it’s not too much trouble send me the links too. Not that I can do anything but I’m curious to see what they are trying to pull off :P

But does he sell the exact same items? Or just other items? If I’m not mistaken exclusivity means that the items you have on Envato marketplaces can’t be sold in other places. But you can sell other items through other methods/marketplaces as long as they aren’t on any of the Envato marketplaces.

Exact same items from what I can tell. Personally not going to purchase them both to check ;)

That’s what came to my mind and when I checked, he had exactly the same looking items in both the places. Of course, you can always change the names of your items and add/reduce a number of features but you still can’t sell anything that looks exactly the same as here.

right, but that doesn’t give the rest of us following this thread any closure. It’s fine if you don’t want to, I was only curious ^^

You’re supposed to wait for more than a week, if Support ever replies to you. Because not all the time do I have a reply, when contacted Envato Support for a copyright issue :).
