I sent DMCA to one forum, two months ago and file was not deleted.
Number of downloads on this ONE warez site is more than number of sales at codecanyon.
Additional my item is selling bad because everyone can download it for free. :(

Hey Matthew – unfortunately the type of people who download free files probably wouldn’t have bought the file anyway. BUT, if you can find out the web hosting company that the forum is hosted from, you can send the DMCA notice to them and they must abide since the file is on their server.

If you message me the link I can try and find out the host provider for you.

And if someone is reselling your files and using PayPal to charge the customers, you can file a DMCA with PayPal and have the resellers PayPal account closed.

I have created a large list of resources & tools for sellers to use in order to help prevent piracy, if anyone is interested in joining the private group let me know. We share tips, tricks on how to increase sales through fighting piracy.

Don’t let people make you believe that you can’t do anything about piracy.
