Hi folks,

I have few authors who are stealing ideas and features from my scripts everytime I release an update.

So for example, If I add X feature on an update, the author gonna add the same X feature with same name to his project.

Is that allowed in Envato?

Please advice.

Regards,

Hi @DoughouzForest.

You can’t say that is stealing. It’s merely competition. But i totaly understand what you are feeling right now.
But if he is using your own script and not changing names or the script itself, or is not using an extended license…that could be really a theft…

Best regards.

Get used to copycats!

It’s a good thing because you’re followed! So you set a trend somehow.

The original will be the best always anyways, which is you in this case.
