Hi ppl, I’ve been a part of this community for almost 4 years. Its been wonderful. But lately I’ve been losing faith here. I feel insecure about uploading my works here. I feel like our works are not protected enough.
As soon as we upload a new template. Its available everywhere. I mean pirated sites. Where they give it away for free. There are soooo many. How many can we stop?? I’m tired of fighting piracy.
I recently saw my templates being distributed for 5$ on fvr*.there were so many. Unbelievable! I managed to make some of them take down. But only some. One particular author, I must share this. Said he doesn’t care. Even I report it. He said he has already made more money than me, using my work. The beauty is he said I didn’t even purchase my templates. He said he got it for free!!.
Yeah. Envato can’t stop them all. But at the same time, as long as we sell our works in the form of templates, its not safe. I have a new project on queue as we speak. But I think that’s it. I’m done with envato. I must look for other options.
