This guy stole my theme – http://codeking.org/ My Theme url – http://bit.ly/5u3abB

I sent him a message here – http://twitter.com/mustafaquilon/status/6269268098

and an email

Was that right? or what else should I do? This sort of adulation is kind of new to me :P Seriously, please guide me on how should I go about it… :s

P.S: It just struck me that I should contact support… :)

What makes you so certain he stole your theme and isn’t one of the people who purchased it? (Or perhaps had somebody purchase it for them on their behalf)

If you look closely, he even mirrored my GA code, which is used only on live preview. It showed in my GA stats :P

From now on, I’m planning to add some comments here & there in the live preview so I can recognize its stolen even if they remove the GA code.

I wrote to support, however, I guess it’s night in Australia :)

Just send out a DMCA immediately, when somebody is to greedy to spend 10 bucks he deserves it.
