I’d just email him and tell him what you have to say.

A lot of developers / programmers just copy somebody else’s idea, and that’s perfectly good.

I’ve released a Plugin here on CodeCanyon and after a week somebody came up with something similar ( as an idea, not to be arogant, but his code was horrible compared to mine ). And it’s not a problem, because I love competition because it makes us be better.

@DeanDev consider sending a DMCA takedown request but be sure that it is indeed your item

I’m talking about stealing ideas, not code. Stealing Code is totally wrong.

The same thing is going with me, I also no have solution for this.

Someone is selling my codes as a plugin on his personal website

I contacted envato support team, they say they will look if they can.

You can also send a message to the hoster of this site with a claim. They must warn their client to remove this item or close the site (if this is the normal hosting company of course).

This article is about what to do if an item sold on Envato infringes on your copyrights; but this is actually the reverse scenario :)

@DeanDev, you should follow that process but send the DMCA to the site distributing the infringing content, not Envato of course – don’t want to DMCA yourself by mistake ;)

Granted :) I was referencing it to give him a bit of an introduction to DMCA process so that he can file it with the other site.
