ok, this is a good and a bad thing… start with the good… it means people want to get our templates, find them good enough to do the trouble of leeching them for free.
bad news: they aren’t being very nice doing that… here’s the link:
anyone found other links with themeforest templates being offered for free download? it’s gotta stop, people who recognize their template,take actions?
anyway cheers, Kay_B. a fellow template-er for themeforest !
Ah thats messed up! That brings up a good question though do we as authors go after the leechers or do we report them to ThemeForest?
It looks like rapidshare blocked the file downloads for illegal content so that’s good. It’s sad that people do that though. I mean seriously, is it so expensive that you have to get it and share it for free. Show some respect people, what scum bags.
I wish there was an easier way to protect against this.
gotcha, yeah its pretty unbelievable how petty some people can be out there
That really sucks!
Let us know what themeforest say’s?
It’s sad, but unfortunately something which is bound to happen. But you probably shouldn’t have posted that link on the forums though.
Sad but true, this one is the only one sample of links that contain rips. But heck, how many of us use every tool with their licence (Adobe products for instance – oh I’m clean), eh?
I knew from the very beginning that my files will be ripped one day as well. But that doesn’t discourage me of uploading new items.
Besides, if your items get ripped much; than it means your works kick ass and popular haha
Hey guys, Support has ways of handling these issues so if you send them the link to the offending site they’ll take action. We already do random weekly trawls of the internet to see if we can find any places ripping our files, but if you send us anything you find too that really helps speed up the process. Thanks!
