Just quote:

“Hi guys, have downloaded your template for free, can i use it as my own site? What’s the consequences? I dont have possibility to buy anything from the web, because i live in a 3rd world countury, so tell me please how to get the licence or what’s the consequences using it without regular licence?”

Did you ever receive anything like this? :bashful:

Yeah:

Hello, we purchased your theme Era WP on link [~] but file is corrupt. Please fix to avoid problems. Thank you.

The ~ link was obviously a pirated version of my theme, and it didn’t even contain the actual theme’s ZIP file.

We had a message from someone that had pirated our new theme saying how we should customise it for him because he does not have the time; ever so glorious.

Or, even better: “Hey, I just stole your car; I kinda don’t like the color so, would you come and repaint it for me?”
