Hi,
I found a link where a bunch of paid files from themeforest are being redistributed. One of them belongs to me, but I would like to report all that page or website (is it possible?). So what can I do? The DMCA form only applies to a single file, right? I don’t know also the links for all the other files.
Thanks… Let’s put these bastards down :)

The thing is that I think they prefer that we do it using a DMCA form. I’ll just wait for one of the Staff Member comment…

Sending a message to support is a waist of time for this.

Lets face it, you spend your time messaging support and all you do is get a copy and paste answer.

Stating that you should send a take it down notice (DMCA) to the website or hosting company, with some links you already know about (at the bottom of the email).

So in turn you have waisted 2-4 days waiting for a reply in which you already new the answer too!

Unfortunately, all you can do is send a DMCA and to tell the truth a lot of these websites are hosted in areas where the DMCA can not touch anyways :(

DMCA is the way to go and I found it pretty much always worked for me, but you will have to go with single files.

Best to alert the authors, alert support, file the DMCAs for your files.

I’m going to lock this as per the forum rules – these threads to more harm than good.
