@ xstortionist: Repeat after me: He stole Acumen on some torrent site. Glad we’re on the same page now. There are dozens of examples of Acumen-only code:

All you have to do is remove the frame surrounding the preview and steal it there.

Oh dear lol.. PHP is executed on the server.. by the time your browser has loaded the page the PHP has already been rendered and all you see is the HTML output. So no, you can’t just go and copy-and-paste somebody’s PHP code.

@GravityDebt I totally understand your frustration, but you really should be putting your case in front of Envato support instead of fueling a scene here. I can’t speak for the code because I haven’t seen it – my original post was just stating that I didn’t feel they looked similiar on the surface is all.

@ pau1winslow: Yes, obviously. Have you heard of MegaUpload? It got shut down for hosting copyrighted materials. There are thousands of illegal download sites just like it. All it takes is one evil person to publish an entire item (HTML, PHP , CSS, JS, documentation, images) and anybody can go download it. How can you be so naive?

Clearly, ‘mebozo’ did not purchase Acumen. Clearly, he has access to the source. It’s called stealing and I don’t understand why you’re defending it.

Envato Support has been notified, and I’m not happy with them either.

Wasn’t referring to PHP .

@GravityDebt

My post about stealing PHP was in response to beetlesales who claimed you could stroll into a demo and copy it out – that’s why I quoted him in my post. If you calm down a bit you might have spotted that. I’m fully aware how torrent sites work, cheers.

@GravityDept

After checking your references, honestly, your complaints seem pretty legit.
Don’t damage your author image here on forum, as you will receive all kind of answers. Contact support again, and if you are completely sure about the copyright, just send a DMCA .

My 2 cents.
