@Dzicn, so could you tell me why every time I contact support they say me that I should send a DMCA? I don’t want DMCA, I want intervention from staff. ;)

Staff cannot intervene without DMCA. I also don’t like the things happening and the copy pasters.

There should be a small report button on every item’s detail page, displayed for authors only. Authors could report any theme and add a small description, maybe a link to the copied item. Then reviewers would decide if the report is justified and if yes, suspend/remove the item. There would be only a few justified reports a week, so reports would have the highest priority, reviewed every single day.

The some authors would be pressing that button on every second item claiming that its similar design to their items and it will end up adding so much extra work for the reviewers.

Staff can’t intervene? It’s Envato’s website, they have the right to remove any design with any reason they want, they don’t have to justify anything.

Same as they were able to disable whole accounts without any notice for having a picture of Angie in a theme demo. The only difference in this case is that it’s completely justified.

The DMCA process is the current standard. There’s a good reply from Collis here on why Support needs to go through the DMCA process – http://codecanyon.net/forums/thread/a-question-of-ethics-or-contributory-copyright-theft-/81015?page=4

That doesn’t say one important thing – why Envato (company from Australia) which is dealing with authors from all around the world ( from Mexico through Greece to Nepal), is using United States copyright law.

It’s because their servers are in the US they fall under US law same goes for any author who’s hosting is in the US (edit: I forgot to add OR any countries with copyright treaties with the US)

Lets be fair, DMCA is the only proper way and so it costs little pain equally for everyone involved (including Envato).

However from Envato’s side, there is a way to drastically reduce internal copy-cats. If Envato asks for identity proof to become an author, 90% of copy-cats wont even open their accounts. Problem solved.

When somebody replicates 1:1 the look and functions of an existing popular item, to use completely different js/css/html doesn’t make the thing less harmful for the original author.

Frankly speaking, what this issue has to do with copyrights and DMCA notices ? Authors here are afraid of losing money due to copycats (as in design) rather than code ripping.
