YES! A PowerElite author got caught RED-HANDED selling our theme AS-IS by rebranding under a NEW Name, SERIOUSLY!
It’s hard to believe but TRUE-STORY! Yesterday a PowerElite author published our theme under a new name and got caught. The good news is that awesome folks at ENVATO (I love u guys) reacted promptly and it has already been disabled.
Now some of you are like how can you be so sure? Well they not only had the same code along with the same bugs but they couldn’t even clean it enough to remove the same COMMENTS in the code

Our team works so hard and sacrificed so much to get where we are today in the last 2 years and the shocking part is that a POWER-ELITE author can do such a thing. I will request you to investigate and see if they have done the same with your product as well as they have over 130 themes.
I have recorded and posted videos on Youtube (Cridio Studio) with detailed description comparing it side by side.
I am thankful to Envato for taking this matter seriously and I would like to request Envato to take serious action against such authors to set an example or else authors and customers will lose trust. I have also sent a tweet out to Collis and senior management at Envato with a recorded video.
Thank you, everyone!
