I found another person copying my theme and actually allowing people to download it. He’s pirating other themes from themeforest too and I bet the theme for his blog is one of the themes from here.

This time I’m definitely sending a DMCA takedown notice.

I cannot mention the name of the site yet, ofcourse, to protect the themes. Like last time I don’t expect envato to take up this issue. So, I need your help.

I’ve read up on how to send a DMCA and stuffs but I wanted to ask..has anyone of you faced this issue? Have you sent a DMCA ? Can you send me a sample template or tell me on how it went? Any help would be much appreciated.

The themes that are being pirated there are:

http://themeforest.net/item/the-virtual-business-card-vcard/71184

http://themeforest.net/item/vcard-portfolio-template/65564

http://themeforest.net/item/smart-software-solutions-in-6-colors/69978

and a business template which I’m not able to locate now. I’ll be contacting the authors shortly and will ask them to send him a DMCA too.

Btw, this guy is from Romania. Any authors from Romania here?

Thanks

Thanks! I’ll mail you if I need any assistance.

I want to know if anyone else has sent a DMCA here? FYI , the domain registrar of this guy is Go Daddy and hosting Hostgator. So, whom do I send the mail too? I know too many questions but I want to be really careful…thanks.

Envato really needs to a WIKI section briefing us on how to go about it. Asking us to take a legal advise is like adding insult to injury sometimes…I just need to learn on how to send a DMCA takedown and to which parties and I should be good.

I do not understand these two point:

Specifically, your notification must:
  • Be in writing;
  • Be signed by the copyright owner or agent; your electronic signature is OK;

Wouldn’t an email suffice? or a tele confirmation? or the like?
