A user pointed me to a site that is selling mine and other ThemeForest items on their site for a lower price. Unbelievably they also bundle them with hosting services..I’m not posting the link not to advertise this cheaters though. I never cared about fighting “old-fashioned” piracy for many reasons, although this is a bit too much to me, what do you guys think I/we should do other than reporting this to Envato support?
You can’t do anything apart from report and DMCA them
There are a lot of websites providing everything from Envato for free, and you will never be able to stop this, I personally taught of a lot of “solutions” to provide a code snippet which will secure scripts, using the purchase code and so on. But a smart person will always be able to bypass those kind of things. The fact that business people will always buy stuff directly from here rather searching them for free will never change, only kids will probably use the free versions rather than getting them for free.
Maybe I wasn’t clear, this is a marketplace selling our items along with optional hosting services. Other than being much worse than giving away them for free (which I said, I wouldn’t care) this could also cause problems to exclusive authors like me as people (and Envato) cannot know if authors are involved in this.
@djwd: Are you talking about the mojo ? If yes, contact them and they will remove it.
