If I may put my two cents in, if you have a theme that was stolen this means that it is good enough and I’m sure there will be people who will buy it. How once bobocel has said, it makes you publicity.

What i dont get is, even if you knew when or where your theme was activated, how would you know if it is stolen or bought?

Exactly. Even if you found a site using your theme there is no way to tell weather or not the person paid for it. I guess you could email every single person / site you find with your theme on it asking for a license number but chances are most people would just tel you to f-off anyways. You could protect your live previews from being ripped but when it comes down to the theme there really is no way to know.

I am not sure about the TF forums but I know a lot of WordPress plugin devs on CodeCanyon including myself have been pushing Envato for a built in way to handle theme / plugin activation and updates through the Envato Network.
