I just noticed that one of new projects on Videohive has a same name as my one. What do you feel about this kind of events when it happens with your projects? :) Also, do you think this is normal? Or do you think it is wrong to do that? I understand that opinions may differ, but I’m just wondering.

Maybe I’m a bit old fashioned, but I think it’s a bit wrong to do that. I just always try to use search before giving the name of the new project. Or if I don’t have any idea of how to call my new project, I just call it as a music track which I used in a project.

Hi Wayman

I think that most of the authors around here, try to be original at list in there title. So probably the author didn’t choose by purpose a title like yours. Probably this happened just because its impossible to know all the titles by memory. Me personally when its time to title a file, I first check with the videohive browser to see if there is something there already. Any way I don’t believe that the same titles can effect the sales

Well its true, but I never saw a case like the one you describe, or if something like this happened for sure I don’t support it. BTW I was in Greece for vacations this summer :)

I don’t see the problem here. There are 3 projects with name “adrenaline”, two projects with name “movie intro” (my items are older). I didn’t invented any of those words or phrases, so I can’t complain. There are maybe more projects, and maybe I used same name(s) of other items… I don’t know.

Mocarg is right.

Hey Wayman I just saw the file you are talking about and…. actually you have 2 files with this name. You have to consider that the author in totally new and probably he didn’t know….. I think its better to contact him.

Thanks for your opinions, guys!

I don’t want to complain, because there are no rules about names of projects. I just wondering how think about it the other authors. I think if ten projects will have the same name, this is not good, someone thinks that this is normal. :)

I just noticed that there are a bunch of people named Matthew Butler. Maybe I’m a bit old fashion but I think that it’s a bit wrong to have more than one person on this earth with the same name.

Then you’ll be needing a name a bit more like Johann Gambolputty… :-)
