It sucks current items are never aloud… Pretty much my entire portfolio falls into this competition and I don’t get a shot at it :(

Hidden items get removed from your portfolio page making it impossible to download a current copy of whats on the marketplace to evaluate any issues there may be with the download package.

There should also be a download button on the hidden items pages for authors to download a copy of an item that has been hidden.

Looks awesome, the creator of the Leaftlet App seems to have abandoned it. No really good stats / commenting features and it’s not iPhone 5 ready!

Could this be something like a MailChimp integration plugin?

http://nofra.me/8 Does it break out of the frame for you?
Doing it wrong, you would insert the URL of your demo not the entire ThemeForest URL. Then edit your item to use the noFrame URL as your live demo url.

I was doing it wrong because there were no clear instructions for me to do it right :)

Anyway, there’s another thing about frame breakers, that authors should be aware of. As far as I know (someone please correct me if I’m wrong), reviewers (soft)reject items submitted with a live demo URL that breaks out of the frame. Remember, Jonathan ? :)

Maybe that’s changed now?

Not sure what their stance on this is, I know about 95% of the elite authors on ThemeForest do it though, and the URL can always be changed after approval ;)

Thanks for your message Tyler.. I understand the risks, but how does this apply if i’m not a citizen of the US? I see only two options: either they come in my country to open a lawsuit against me, either my country extradites me so that i can go on a lawsuit in the US. Wouldn’t this be a bit too extreme in this case? Anyway..i’m removing the file now :D

Ok this is where it gets complex.

I am no expert, but the lawyer that hit us with a cease desist and turn over writ, stated that because our domain ( tis was purely based on an aged domain we owned ) in fact had owned for 11 years and they contacted us when the site they were protecting became prolific, and 11 years after we had registered our domain.

He demanded we remove the domain immediately, and turn the domain over to his client. I will mention the domian ( of his client, because he was a complete tool. That being fark.com )

Anyhoo, he also stated if we refused to hand over the domain, then we must prevent our domain access to countries his client had IP in.

We refused , and were hit with a multi million dollar lawsuit. We still refused on the grounds that we are in Australia, and his client in America, and that constructively creating a legal case based on the increased popularity of his clients site is not dilluted by the fact we own a similar sounding domain.

They would not back down, and embarked on an aggressive campaign to pursue their legal rights.

3 months later, and sleepless nights we backed down, having got legal advise from a lawyer, who stated internet IP is a minefield, and not something we should take lightly, it doesnt operate on the same plane as crimes in a another country ( normal crime ) where extradition applies, moreover if your site / file etc is accessible within the country of origin of protected IP, then you can be hit for damages and legally held accountable.

We didnt want to take the chance.

@revex it does not matter if they had it for 20. I believe the way domains work si if someone owns a trademark or copyright, or even IP to something involving the domain before the domain is purchased, your in trouble. There was a guy on WickedFire a long time ago who claimed to have copyrights to something like 10,000 domains all on park pages. He would wait for people to register the newer TLDs and country TLDs (usually much more expensive) and then threaten them with lawsuits if they did not turn the domain over to him.

I believe if their lawsuit was accepted into a court you would be forced to travel here at your own expense or face contempt, in which case I think they would move to extradite you for not showing up and jail you until the trial. It all depends on what country your in, but Mega proves that no longer matters and if the opposing person has a big enough bank roll they will get you.

I would go and get a lawyer immediately and I hope you have an LLC. Not only is this a very serious law in NY (I live here) but they can take a shit load of money for it. Seeing as how you have made part of $250,000 + while using his name he probably sees you as a large enough target to squeeze for money. Im not saying your guilty of anything, I am saying that because you are a big enough fish they are either going to sue you or make you an offer to settle ouf of court for $$$$.

I’m curious if any other authors got these, there are tons of people with sliders on CodeCanyon using the Ken Burns name.

When I first started slinging ads on Facebook it was around the time a lot of people got busted for using Oprah’s name in diet ads. She had nothing to do with the people or the product but because they used her name as if she somehow did, they were all found guilty. Some people even got fined into the millions. http://mashable.com/2009/08/21/oprah-lawsuit/

You can’t frame youtube itself but you can embed a youtube video and frame that page

Yes, this is more direct though and removes the need to create a page etc. The frame also breaks Facebook tabs (not a huge issues for most but I know of a few popular CC items that link to them that appear broken because of the bar.) and some other popular sites people use for video demos. I remember coming across a lot of them last month, not sure if envato knows this – maybe its time to create a White List for domains to not use the bar on?

NoFra.me also stops a lot of the in-browser proxies like HideMyAss.com from messing with your site as well.

Was just an example, there are many other cases where removing the frame is handy and this removes the need to make a frame buster for your site.
