Hi!

It is well known that software piracy is highly affecting all of the envato marketplaces. I too have found some of my items on various websites for free download. I usually file a DMCA complaint and they take it down in a day or two. The google webmasters DMCA report tool works well as well.

There are however sites, that will not take down your file no matter what you do. There was this one domain called [Link removed. Please do not post piracy links to the forums] which I could not contact, but I have found that it’s hosting numerous codecanyon and themeforest items including mine without permission. So what the hell, I did a whois check and contacted the domain service provider. After explaining them the situation I refered to a point in their TOS where was clearly stated that they would suspend domains that point to illegal content and such.

Suprisingly they did respond that they will contact the domain owner, and if by 48 hours the content violating my copyrights does not disappear I should contact them and they will suspend the domain. Whoa. I waited more than 7 days, then contacted them, and after a day I got an email that the domain was suspended. What an awesome support, damn. I have never thought this is possible, it is.

I have to thank you too. I sent over a dozen of DMCA complaints to the domain you mentioned without any reply. I’m glad it’s down now.

Thanks for your hard work! I can finally remove them from my list. I am also struggling for months with another warez site which also doesn’t respond to any DMCA complain. I will try same approach…

You are really a hero, man. After I red this thread I also looked for contact emails by whois for 4 different domain who didn’t answer for my continuous notices before. Just got the same email as you from one of those (from the domain registrator), they will suspend the domain (rapidgator) if the domain owner doesn’t remove the illegal content. I’m really curious for the next days.
