As a new author on CodeCanyon, I’d like to know how copyrights work on the Envato platform. I just wanted to check with the community to figure some things out for the future.
Is it possible for another author to steal my work and put it on Envato? If so, when their item is submitted, are the files checked for copyright or would I have to report a request for them to look over the stolen script?
If copyrighted material is found, what actions are taken? Would I need to be the one to take action, with something such as a DMCA takedown notice or will Envato do something about it?
Thank you in advance for your help. Just want to be prepared in case this would ever happen in the future.
