Saw a thread started by cooledition today that’s been deleted and a few other threads recently that have just been deleted with no notice, no nothing… it’s strange, you guys used to lock threads, now you’ve started deleting too?

If you’ve got a piracy problem, deleting threads isn’t going to help, it’s not going to “delete” your problem…

Yeah but warez sites keep showing our work for free.

So, it means that Envato support does nothing to ban those members which are well known and easy to spot (hint: 1 sale items).

What else can we do?

I’m tired and sick of sending 50 DMCA ’s every day.

Ok i will be straight and frank what i think. Its not because of the W or the P Envato dont want to see and let us to discuss about this problem here in the forum. Envato needs more authors more items uploads, eg. more sales / off course they need. thats their business, and im ok with that.

I dont tell that they dont care with us. Off course they do. But! Let to be honest with ourself. If we would keep talk about this things here maybe it could have a serious effects on new author’s decision, and those who keep uploading files as well.

But If there is more authors, more sales, it can be compensate all those drops what the P and W cause here. Im sorry to tell that, but this is not a solution for both side. You and me, we have serious drop in sales i think its not only because of summertime.

And im not alone with this opinion, im sure in that. I also like to see here more authors with great works, im sure if somebody knows me, they know it im not a jellous person. I do love poeple here. But honeeslty it will not help us at all, if the Author number’s will grows too high, and the same time the quality just falls.

And the best items just appearing in 10 minutes in 5 different sites. Why we can not talk about this issue in a private forum? Out of the search engnine’s eyes. Why we can not see results? I agree that this subject should not be in public. But Excuse me, its our work, our items, our business, our case. Ok we can not talk about this here. Then? where? Thank you in advance for closing this thread as well…

You have to see it like this, Im a new user, I find my self seeing an item I like, I head over to the forums and see someone mouthing off that they see there file all over the internet for free, this give me an idea and search for the file I wanted, at that point I find the file and dont need to pay for it.

Now if you dont want to send DMCA requests theres 3 things you could do;

Forget about them, If people steal they steal or Dont sell your items here or Pay someone to do it for you.
