Almost every single theme gets put on behance for referrals, if you want it removed you need send a DMCA takedown to behance.

I saw this account before and recognized the themes from ThemeForest, I always thought she was a freelance designer who worked with top authors… and thought wow she is good :D so I guess not!

Tried this as well a couple months ago but got some crap email from them asking me for proof of copyright despite the links to my themes…

On a second note, i’ve just wrote comment on my latest theme which was there and it seems that the author removed it.

:D

Don’t think we should complain about it. This person does not gain customers by presenting others work as his own. All he does is creating links to our items.

What really bothers me is fellow authors, to be precise, one in particular. He bought a successful theme, took all the interesting and unique features, all of them, i mean the code, and now he is selling “his” themes, he already has two themes based on the one he bought, here on ThemeForest. I’m a customer of the original theme, so i’m 100% sure what i’m talking about.

I think this issue is much more serious than Behance affiliate links.

EDIT: The email reply I got from behance, this was after using that form to report an item.

Hello,

Thanks for getting in touch.

•    Identification of your copyrighted work that you believe is being infringed;
•    Identification of the material on our platform that you think is infringing (including its exact location or URL so we can find it);
•    Your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address, so that we can contact you with any questions;

Are DMCA requests against affiliates that promote themeforest items allowed? according to http://themeforest.net/legal/author

25. Other authors and affiliates’ use of your item: An Envato affiliate can use your item thumbnail previews in their promotion of the Marketplaces and no compensation is due for these uses. A fellow author may also use a watermarked preview of your item in a preview of their own Marketplaces item without requiring your permission and without compensating you. The other author must credit you by providing a link to your item on our Marketplaces.

If promoting items on behance is ethical or not is a different problem and is up to behance to allow it or not but this is not a copyright breach to use DMCA.

I welcome any affiliate to use any of my items to promote them anywhere they wish if it doesn’t break any legal terms or does not bring any prejudice.
