waste a time because you all need to take basic security first, randomly selected by the way links below. See how much you care for security while trying to track illegal usage.

Just check links below [Links Edited]

security first, dont just ignore bec we dont have a great portfolio on tf. many sites, demos like this and just wake up take your own security first.

hope helps anyway,

Someone needs to put “options -indexes” in their .htacess file.

Hey altinkum thanks for the heads up man, but please don’t post those links bro we all make mistakes ;) – send the author an email or contact support. :)

It seems like a problem with File Permissions, that’s easy to fix.

I posted a thread a long time ago with no responses:

http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/idea-how-to-better-protect-authors-work-w-live-preview-/23557

I was really thinking about it, I still think it will work. Tracking reffers, creating auto alerts, etc.

Also it may be a little evil but implanting a google anaylitics js in your template. So if they don’t remove the code you can see where its at.

I don’t think you’re allowed to do that. At least not here on TF.

An alternative that comes to my mind is to place a blank gif somewhere in the code, and request it from your server. Just like we track opens in email newsletters.

For WP, you could even wrap it up in a function stashed in functions.php. That way, most “thieves” wouldn’t notice it, and legit clients wouldn’t be bothered/affected :)

Then again, it depends who you’re hunting. If someone knows they’re way around, there’s no perfect security. Even Rockstar, after spending $200k on GTA4 security, had their game pirated in less than 1 month…

l think best way to protect is, give indivual costumer number and you will find bad apples first. which will help alot. which mean everytime you buy theme or templates get a uniq number some where on the theme ?
