Piracy

Dear authors and Envato team!
Today I got to the site where I found all the latest items from Codecanyon and other Envato marketplaces. All of them are available for download.
Products that authors have spent part of their lives on are immediately available for free. Are there any measures being taken to correct this?
Thanks

Have you sent a DMCA notice to the website?

Envato will not be able to help you with this. The DMCA law states only the “copyright owner” or an authorized agent on their behalf can submit a DMCA notice. You own the copyright, so you must enforce it yourself.

First, make sure to send a DMCA takedown notice to the website or its host. Instructions are here: How to send a DMCA Takedown Notice (just 4 steps!)

If they ignore you or deny your request, you can send a complaint to search engines like Google to remove the webpage(s) from search. This will prevent your potential customers from finding it. This is usually easy to do, e.g. Report Content On Google - Legal Help
