I have a feeling they submit your files and then send you their own link saying “look what we just found”. If you show any interest, they’ll keep doing it, just so they have “something to remove”. You can battle the organic results if you wish. There are some sites that don’t comply to DMCA. The best would be to file DMCA directly to Google with Chilling Effects, though you need a company if you don’t wish to publish your personal information (notices to Google are public).

My solution can pull photos from a Flickr group, if that’s community enough :)

same here, and i’m also this week featured author in audiojungle… :-/

I’m also featured but it didn’t change much. I believe buyers don’t like VAT.

On my account I have a team of developers who share a split commission. From each sale of a theme for example I’m only getting 40% share, so I’m little uncomfortable with having my name on each invoice for 100% of the amount. I just get the sinking feeling this going to cause me trouble further down the line. Before this, the only thing which had my name on it, was one payment slip from Envato which was an accurate reflection of my income. What is Envato’s opinion to make me feel more comfortable with this new invoicing policy?

Thought you had a company :) Why not open one?

My Payoneer card got hacked in mid 2014, just under 4 hours after I got my Envato payout. The ATM withdrawals were minutes apart and originated from Russia then Mexico. ( I wonder which airlines travels that fast :)

I have cards issued by local banks that work internationally which I use frequently but it was only the Payoneer card that got hacked… Even though I only use that card for emergencies (once a month or less).

3 months after filing a dispute, I’m now been offered a $280 “good will” gesture out of almost $600 taken. $600 is a lot of money where I live.

I’m disappointed. Now I have to rely on bank transfer which means Envato payouts are now further apart and fees are higher…

A concern of mine is what if the cashier is a super smart human who can memorize all the numbers and letters on a card when I give it to them at point of sale? They could then use the info for online purchases. Also, when paying at restaurants (in the US), they may take your card away for payment then bring it back later. During that time they can write down all the info or take photos. Also security cams could record images of your card and if they catch both sides then bam anyone who watches the video feed can pay using it. Also, when stopped by the police in a foreign country they can take photos of your card, and if they are corrupt or some 3rd party accidentally finds those pictures then bam again, they can spend your money. ATMs can be spoofed so your card info gets stolen then later copied, maybe you just used your card at the wrong place at the wrong time :/ Anyway, be careful with whom you show your card or where you use it. As far as I know google wallet with a google NFC phone can be a substitute for any card, then you could use it instead of your card at any POS terminal that has paypass. That’s probably a way how thieves copy cards.

If you will be finding a middleman be VERY careful about who you do business with, there are lots of money transfer scams. Not sure about relatives but family can also be dishonest, especially distant relatives and with this amount.

If that was true then you’d only be allowed to use such icons on non profit content. Most sites and apps are for gain in some way. I don’t know though.

You can customize basically any gallery to do that, to display the target image anywhere, instead of a lightbox.

Those emails have a “reply-to” specified, the mail will not go to Envato.
