I have lost completely faith in Envato HQ that they really want to address this problem and violation of AJ authors. I have no intention to contact support as I have done it so many times. Empty words is not enough, if they wanted to fix this issue they would have done it by now. They simply don’t want to, or are not willing to prioritise this extremely awkward issue.
Maybe they simply want to keep customers inside Elements to support the sub model itself. Either way, of all the disrespectful actions against the authors I think the lack of crediting music authors is at number 1. It’s such a shame that I have no words to be honest. Placing the responsibility at Videohive authors does not help either.
I guess it boils down to what we can do ourselves as authors here, because years of silent treatment speaks for itself.
The only thing I see we as authors can do is actually to create a description/picture how customers can search for the music tracks themselves when they are browsing Elements (via VideoHive). And then post it in every topic that is about uncredited music.
“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime…” That way they could be somewhat self sustainable in finding tracks at AJ, without the hassle of going to the forum. Which is not a very effective way to find AJ tracks.
Thoughts? Anyone who has some decent photoshop skills for a simple explanation?
I think this could at least help some customers with a work around and help them shop at AJ more then just for a single track.
