I understand you perfectly. That is why I have asked for advice from much more experienced authors.
I know, I dont owe rights on instagrams logo. But if I have created animation with particular timing and style, and there is nothing similar like that on videohive, isn’t that my intellectual property on videohive. What’s the point on being author if everyone can copy that and take what could have been maybe 50% of your sales.
Just please consider this :
My old file : http://videohive.net/item/short-instagram-promotion/12470214
My new file: http://videohive.net/item/quick-instagram/16205916
Other authors file: http://videohive.net/item/instagram-slideshow/16541858
First logo animation, beginning exactly the same like my old file, same timing, same place everything. Than it transforms to my new file, same place for profile image and text, with exactly the same ring around the profile image with continuous loop ( I am saying this because there is nothing like this anywhere).
Then images wich is authors unique style, that is not copied, and the ending really similar.
Please, you have to understand my frustration. I am ok with losing sales to files wich are different and better. But this is not cool.
Again, thank you for your opinion, I am aware that I could be wrong and this is all for nothing.
