Hey I was looking my theme Bree up on google and I came across a guy who had downloaded themes of various authors and is reselling them at a price 2 times lower than the original.

You can check out all the themes he’s selling illegaly here: [removed]

I wrote to the website and envato but no response yet…

I want to let people know that this guy is making money off their products (mine too) and we should definitely do something about it…

What about all the money he made? He made thousands of dollars which should go to the authors.

This will get locked but send a support request to Envato as he is ripping off the whole of themeforest, from the files to the design.

This is getting ridiculous at this stage.

Any piracy concerns, send them to support, don’t just post them on a public forum.

Yes, i also think it’s not fair … but i am pretty sure he will get in big problems… remember that piracy is illegal… but reseling others work… is fairly worst. He will have big problems soon belive me ;)

I noticed that those authors who had the top switcher bar implemented are covered. If somebody clicks on “purchase”, then they will be redirected to themeforest with their referal…

Please report copyright, piracy, & warez concerns directly to support as opposed to the forums. :)
