Like EladChai said, just google some keywords like five dollar graphic design. I’ve searched just for mock-ups and there is basically every mock-up from GR, some of them are selling them for more, like an extra service. In this case I don’t know if the proper license exists because they are in direct competition with us and not selling the files as part of a bigger project, and some even send the psd’s.

People taking on hours of work for $5 (which they don’t get all of) are most likely kids.

I found people using my products and product preview images on their Fiverr sites etc.

I found that simply emailing them saying “Look, you shouldn’t be using these products for your fiverr jobs / preview images. Either remove them or I’ll report your account”

The content gets removed pretty swiftly, these kids don’t want their pocket money stopped :):evil:

Hi guys;

It’s clear and simple we can’t stop Giraffes because we are some individual designers and if we will spend all our time fetching links and sending DCMA we will not founding time to create our designs.

But the problem is in Envato the biggest company with a lot of employers around the world and payed with our money, and really until now from 1 year when this subject is opened I don’t see any positive reaction and REAL SOLUTIONS provided for this problem like the Envato company don’t interest or he accept this the GIRAFFES method, because there are a lot solutions can be applied to at least reducing this traffic because now 95% of my portfolio is for free and my sales is down about 60% WHAY ?? we need to accept this state and continue working.

Really I respect all STAFF , REVIEWERS , ADMIN , AUTHORS ,BUYERS but I really feel that this place is not our home but is our JAIL and we are the SLAVES of GIRAFFES + ENVATO.

Really Sorry and Good luck For all.

Best regards, BaGeRa.

Bitch please BAgeRA!! Working this way is 99941545 times better than being slave of real people and a boss in office. We’re all “slaves” or at the service of somebody if you live in this planet

I recommend using the millenium copyright act thing with google. You just report the offending url and prove you own the original content (i just provided links to my portfolio) and boom the links were removed from search results. TBH in surprised envato don’t take a member of staff on to just fire these things off to google all day. Its a weird way to stop them, but they’re not in search results then people cant find it!

Lol slaves of envato, they just provide the platform we don’t have to use it. Its an almost impossible task to stop copyright theft. Look at the size of the music and film industry, they haven’t even came close to solving it. I think the problem is as long as we have an open and free internet, this kind of theft is almost impossible to police, and a complete change in the rules and values of the internet is the only way its going to change. But that means laws and regulations and nobody really wants that!

that’s my 2pence!

I also found one of my files being missused a while ago on Fiverr. After sending a warning email to the person offering the gig, it was quickly removed with some appologies.

Just type “mockup” into Fiverr, and you will find lots of files from Envato, obviously breaching the copyright issue. I think Envato should take some warning/legal action, to Fiverr at least.
