Once more, big thanks Ibrahim!

That’s a very important issue for all of us and any effort to help on this is really appreciated.

By the way, Terrassa!? What a coincidence!! Nice idea, Envato could start thinking about organizing a Meet-up in the sunny Barcelona: Good weather, good food and good people… what else can you ask for? ;) And yes, I’ve been living in Barcelona for 3 years. But now I’m moving to the peaceful Mataro for a while: my stuff packed again, all is full of moving boxes, I can’t find anything… sometimes moving can be a nightmare!!

And leaving aside my crazy moves, thank you very much again Ibby for keeping us informed updating this post.

Best!

Try going through the Content guidelines. Everything under “Authorship and articles” is a good read for you. Might help give you better ranking for content that you own and combat copy cats.

It all comes down to you linking your g+ profile with content you own.

If you want your authorship information to appear in search results for the content you create, you’ll need a Google+ Profile with a good, recognizable headshot as your profile photo. Then, verify authorship of your content by associating it with your profile using either of the methods below..

BTW, not sure how much it will help with your copy cat problem but it’s better than not having any authorship at all :)

My pleasure PrismaDesign! I’ll keep you updated on a possible meetup. Maybe we can start with a small one before or after summer. I’ll see what I can do :)

Cheers!

Hey guys!

Just a quick update, we had unexpected changes on the article “How to remove illegal results from Google Web Search and other Google services”. Google just changed the interface and some of the steps we added to this guide, I have already updated it, the changes should be online soon.

My apologies for the inconvenience.

Cheers!

Can You please take a look at it?

Thank You

Jan

Hello

First of all, thanks for bringing this up again as a constructive discussion. Here are my points that i have experienced and some general thoughts about piracy :

Seeing Authors from Themeforest coming up with suggestions like “Envato should ask $5 per item per month from authors to handle DMCA for them” really annoys me. Especialy speaking as Audiojungle Author where money is earned the hard way.

Hearing that we, the authors are responsible for taking action and sending DMCA’s out is not the best way to motivate authors. I can assure you, that i invest 20-30 hours a week into my work for Envato (AJ, GR and VH) and earn approx $1’000 per month. Putting another 10 hours monthly into keeping my portfolio looking nice and tidy, plus doing some promotion for my items. If i have to invest another few hours in sending DMCA’s out brings me to a point where i have to ask myself if it’s worth the immense amount of work for $1’000 ?

If i as a individual send out a DMCA to a hosting company does for sure not make the same pressure as if Envato, a mutli million dollar company sends out DMCA and Warnings on a regular base. Especialy as most of the pirated files contain “Grahicriver” or “Videohive” in the filename, it is easy to send a compiled list with hundreds of items per DMCA, which i as single author can’t.

The EU just released a new law, where providers and hosting company can now be forced to shut down accounts and company servers where illegal content has been distributed. This is brand new and we should really make use of that. I anyway don’t see a reason why any of these companies are still online (at least in the EU and US) as 99% of the content they host is pirated material. Who else uses services like this to store files ?

And here some general thoughts to people constantly claiming “it’s 2014 and piracy is a fact, we have to life with it as fighting against it is wasting your time”. I don’t know why people constantly think that a year, or decade is responsible for that situation. Because it’s human greed and egoistic behaviour that creates this situation. Everyone thinks digital content should be free and it’s nothing bad to download pirated stuff. If we all keep acting like this, i can assure you that we will loose many, many more jobs and this will affect EVERYONE out there in the long term. And everytime you download illegal stuff, you should be aware that you are putting your own job in danger as our economy is a cycle and everything affects the other over a period of time. This is not really hard to understand, but as egoism and greed is the driving force behind many individuals, they simply ignore this until the day they will loose their job because no one has money to buy their services are someone else offers a cheaper solution.

Thanks for reading all this :)
