(Locked) Illegal resellings of Videohive templates on fiverr


#1

Hi guys,

I just wanted to ask you whether you have any experiences with people reselling or offering customizations of your templates without having proper licenses on fiverr.com ?

I had a few issues in the past, where somebody offered customization and rendering of one of my templates without haveing a proper license to do so. So you should check out the gigs at fiverr.com for copyright violations regarding your After Effects templates and report those issues to the fiverr support: http://support.fiverr.com/home

I always contacted ht sellers of the gigs and asked for their licenses - but never got any response. Then I contacted fiverr support and the gigs were pused for a while, but never were removed. I contacted the support again, so lets see.

What were your exerpiences?

Kind regards,

Roland aka graphicINmotion

That site is meant for illegal purposes like that, you get that if you read their rules. Full anonymity of authors, protection of authors etc. You will need to send a DMCA notice to have any effect but they are clearly on the wrong side.

I was successful by contacting the fiverr support and request actions against the users that offered illegal services and it seems that they banned the users - at least I can´t find them anymore. But I found a few new illegal distributions of my items already and it´s getting really annoying!

I’m a full time fiverr seller myself and I don’t sell any illegal content. Saying that fiverr is meant for selling illegal shit is just really dumb. There are very honest and creative people there and yes, also some rats that sell go and take the shortcut by selling others work.

I have a good connection with fiverr’s customer support and I can get any gig removed within 24 hours if you just give me the link to the gig, and the link of the original videohive template.

Kind regards,
Jerome

Unfortunately there are so many illegal gigs and Fiverr policy is pretty encouraging for illegal stuff that they outperform any good gigs that Fiverr might have and most people on VH hates that place. Anyway. i just e-mailed you links to 18 gigs that are based on my projects. Good luck with taking them down. I wasn’t lucky enough.

I reported them all :wink:

:slight_smile: I too reported a lot just a few days ago :wink: I am not a author of VH templates - but buy a lot and it is totally infuriating to see VH authors getting ripped off in such a mega way on Fiverr or any other site for that matter.
