Whatever the case, do the right thing and contact the author; even if you don’t come to a solution, don’t make this public, just contact support.

However, seeing as it got past review, it’s highly probable this is NOT a copy.

Cheers, Nikos

No offence but imho all small stuff like psd, coming soon, 404 pages etc. should be removed from homepage because they just clutter it. Maybe I’m wrong but it’s my point of view. :P

If you were only selling “small stuff” or maybe even if you only had one 404 on your profile for sale on themeforest you would think different. :)

You are not paranoic, the html is almost identical in terms on structure and labels.
Also, this author has been accused (with valid reasons, enough to make him remove the copy he made) of obivous copycat while ago.

Contact support.
I can’t understand why such authors can keep on uploading copies after a valid DMCA issue. I’m not telling that they should be blocked, but at least they should be reviewed carefully.

I haven’t checked the source, but I trusted dekciw when he said source differs between templates. :P Anyways, my apologies to manserro5 for everything said without checking first.

That’s not even funny guys, why should I do signed DMCA on same website like Themeforest??? I would understand it if for example it would be a different websites… but c’mon!

We checked HTML – almost 90% same, from Css part same, he didn’t even changed almost nothing!

You call that 90% same code? I’m blind, I guess :)
