I need your help regarding a License and Piracy Issue.
One Author included my Item WP Quick Booking Manager Pro in two of his themes and giving away my item as free item with his so called theme, without asking for any sort of permission from me even without purchasing any License. Then I asked the Support team to take necessary action. Then that Author purchased an Extended License for my Item after my complaint. After that the Envato support member, tells me that the Author purchased your Extended License so it is fine . How Funny is that ??? A Thief just paid for your Stolen Thing ??? He even knows that the License has been purchased after my complain still he says, it is Fine.
Should The Stealing Author would get punished ???
This is simply Piracy.
As I have NOT given the Written Permission, so I want to see, what the Support decides eventually.
But, of course, I believe Envato will understand and Punish that Author. Otherwise, anyone will start Purchasing the Extended license for Trending good items and Make a Bundle in the Name of a Theme or Plugin and sell it away. And the Original Authors of those items will get no money at all.
Please let us know your thoughts regarding such case.
