Ok so, i’m going to tell you what have i done to temporarily turn off one of those websites.
First off you’ll need to find the host provider - and for that you’ll need this little fella here: whoishostingthis (not going to include the full link to avoid considering spam).
Then you’ll need to contact the DMCA department and show them a specific case, in my case i’ve shown my project being illegally shared ‘for free’ and the legit Videohive project page.
And as soon as i’ve shown this they immediately told me that they don’t review themselves in such clients like this one and that they were going to get in contact with their client in order remove the project or the website woulb be shut down for 15 days.
And that happened but the problem is after those 15 days only Envato could go further and act legally on these guys and it’s right here that i feel like envato should have a Lawyer department and do something.
If as a simple internet user i was able to shut down one of these well known websites, how can’t Envato try to do something? Am i so wrong about it?
Because i’m still feeling like the only answer is from Envato is ‘There’s nothing we can do’ and i don’t think so.
