Hello everyone,

I cannot tell you how sad I am right now :-(

First of all, these type of accusations should not be posted on the item wall, dragging me, Themeforest, the community and Mediacreed themselves through the mud. It is beyond unprofessional.

Second, I have NOT copied anything from Mediacreed’s amazing Synergy template, the themes have some similarities, but they serve the exact same purpose, and are of the same style. For instance, why would I move the sidebar to the right or top, just for the sake of it, not to be accused of?

There are tons of completely different features and styles between the themes, Synergy is HTML5, Asgard is not. Asgard is crawlable, Synergy, I assume, is not. The inner pages are completely different, I have masonry layouts, Synergy doesn’t.

And honestly, I have seen tens of themes like these two, even on Themeforest, cannot see why all the fuss is about, resolving to some members like Virtuti directly abusing them! That is beyond spiteful, to say the least.

Finally, even if there was an issue, this is between Mediacreed and me, nothing to do with others, if they feel so affended, they can sue me, I will support my work, I have worked tons of hours on this, and will not tolerate such accusations.

And last of all, Mediacreed, you have even purchased my theme (I have NOT purchased Synergy), check every bit of my code, I am sure you won’t find anything similar, I have developed this for scratch. End of story.

PS: Ben Sheppard is a friend on Facebook, he is not an affiliate or anything, he simply gave feedback through the development progress.

Dear copy user,

I did not contact virtuti. You are very wrong. Virtuti did what she thought and she posted her own opinion.

Also KBR Media posted his own opinion. Now it is clear to me that you used Synergy as a reference and tried the easy way by copying as much as possible.

How is that the Gallery Preview is the same, How is that Portfolio Preview is the same( except the buttons ) Show me another template like that pretty please.

Anyway as i posted on my comment:

<quote>But you did flagged my comment. Why?

You didn’t copied the code but the design and look and animations you already did.

Anyway the item will prove if it is worth it. There is a compensation law in life. How you do is how you receive. Life and buyers will give you exactly what you deserve.

Good Luck with sales. See you in 1 week.

Cheers,
Mediacreed

Visually, it certainly looks like a copy.

I don’t think it’s a copy. There are many themes that look like each other on Themeforest. As long as the code is different, he can even use the same animation.

If you are concerned, file a DMCA.

I never said you contacted Virtutti, she own her own account bashed me and my work, and harassed my clients. That is beyond ridiculous and unprofessional. Never called you on that.

And if you keep calling me copy user I am done talking to you. I will not accept to something I have not done, and If you want, contact support, or sue me. I am not afraid to support my work, I am an honest man.

About the Portfolio and Gallery preview layouts, you really think you invented the wheel, don’t you? I have seen tens of themes like this.

My theme has so many features yours doesn’t (and of course yours too), and you’re cherry picking some similarities that are actually staple for this kind of template.

Hello KingDog,

I have nothing to fear, and have copied nothing. Please take this to support, I am being harassed and being dragged here.

Thank you, Nikos

Nikos, you crossed all the borders. Well, let’s wait for a while. He who laughs last, laughs best.

I’m sorry to say that but this is a copy alright.

Not as badly copied as the clockwork theme was before (which was removed since then) but it’s clearly a copy.

Even if the author copied it only by looking to get “inspired” and did all the coding work himself. That still makes this a copy. Which is not acceptable.

If the author did the work he could have been smarter and modify the look more. Now he risks his reputation.
