Congrats Enabled, you really deserve it , mine coming soon too.
Send a DMCA takedown. Be ready for the legal implications of that.
I am talking about cases where the original items are here on Envato marketplaces.
1. A new author purchases an item from an Envato marketplace and makes some small modification to it. The item is largely the same, but the new author submits it for sale as their own work after creating new description, images etc.
2. A new author creates an item that is probably different enough to be considered original, but bases it on the concept of an existing item. The new author then copy/pastes the description from the sales page of the existing item into his new items description.
In the above two cases, would a DMCA notice be the proper action to take?In either case, it should be fairly obvious to Envato staff what happened if they look at the two items because they either have identical descriptions or item content.
1. That would be easily taken down on a report via the support.
2. I do agree with you, if the Items are on pretty much the same a carbon copy description should never be allowed.
