Ticket ID: FQL-465-90853

If he think that i have copied his design(but i have not copied his design) first he should send a dmca notice in my email. But without this he directly send a wrong dmca notice on envato.

If you file the counter, your item will be back online in a few weeks if the other author doesn’t start legal proceedings. I doubt he’ll take you to court for it, since it isn’t a clear case (basically it’s a Metro design, and lots of people use it), and it’s not worth it even if he wins (the item is for sale on CodeCanyon, and has only made ~$7000). Not sure what jurisdiction it would be in (your country, his, or Envato’s), but in the US where I’m from, it wouldn’t be worth it to file that case because it would cost more than you could win.

I know that i can’t win because he is elite author but i am sure i haven’t copy his design. However i have decided to remove my widget design. First he should be send me a dmca notice that’s my owe.

That’s a shame to give up so easily. Remember that he would have to actually take you to court to continue the dmca claim, and the court doesn’t care about elite status. Here in the US courts only care about what you can prove, and he can’t prove you copied just because the design is similar.
