just found activeden items on a website…

i can’t understand chinese so tried google translate, no much luck
but here’s what i’ve found out:

they have custom modified preview of our items
they give details which are only available in help file (purchased item download)
they offer a credit based ?? download link

i’ve seen some of my items but also recognized other author’s work (like ranfirefly and barisintepe)

i won’t post links here for obvious reasons but if someone (better if can understand chinese) would like to help investigate
i can provide site details by email, just drop me a note using my profile form.

i will contact admins about this issue but i would like to provide more details

contact support and leave it. You’re not the first to start a thread about this. Piracy is inevitable. C’mon, it’s the Internet.

yeah, i know, but this is not the usual wz size who offers rs links or torrents download.
seems to me like they are rebranding our works.

but since i can’t understand chinese i just wanted to be sure at first.
however, i’ll follow your advise and just drop an email to support… but….

i don’t want to work today…. and now, because of you, i have to find another excuse…

Doubt that someone can do something against chinese law. Also could be a scam. Also :) what if they bought the extended license, that let them resale the product?

that does not allow to just change the name and resell the very same item
however, i haven’t opt in for ext. license

sent.

i do have some script based automatic google query to check this things.

query is on my name, filters take care of removing known sites like envato mps, adobe cfusion, softpedia, etc.
i manually check the rest: most of the time, buyers also upload item sources instead of just swf/resources.

Just wanted to pop in and reiterate what Arik said. Contact support and leave it. By posting threads like this, you could be doing more harm than good.
