It’s not that “It’s an unnecessary waste of time and money.” and nor do they ‘Not care’
They don’t own copyright of files here. Claims can only be made by the copyright holder i.e. authors
The big networks have their own ways for dealing with cases like this and believe it or not weather it is a single auhtor or a global business’s legal team - the same process will be followed.
‘Less scrupulous’ sites distributing files just don’t care nor bothered by DCMAs or legal threats.
The envato legal cover idea is great but authors will get frustrated when their cases are not successful as there is only so much anyone can do.
I am all for stopping people breaking the rules and in no way am i justifying it but it is simply not that straight forward and exactly the same with all other marketplaces
I am still waiting for someone for examples of marketplaces doing other stuff some people dislike here and the same goes for this - are there any examples of sites which fight auhtor copyright for them?
