Good Business 101: Never EVER allow products with same name.
+1 There is also a theme called “freshface”. So we are now working on a theme called “aeroalquimia” and it will be super ugly :evil:

I laughed so hard at this. I miss you’re comments freshface.

Guys, just don’t call your themes with simple common words, you can’t own a common word. Give your themes an original name and then will be harder to see a new theme with the same name… and if then happens would be easier to dispute the intellectual propery of the product name.

I’m calling my next one “Theme – for WordPress” ;)

I posted about this over a month or so ago now – using the same name as someone else’s product for the same marketplace is so unprofessional – it’s bad enough that we have products that are quite obvious rip-offs of other items for sale but to now start “borrowing” same or incredibly similar names is just ridiculous.

The official word was to check before uploading and leave it to authors (which I believe is a simple corporate bs of getting away from simply checking themselves before approving a product – after all it’s their site) – I personally take this “trend” that is going on just a joke and proves the number of people here now for one thing only – to make a quick buck off the back of long established and hard working authors – searching for a theme you want to buy will now bring up the competition, it also muddles search engine results and also makes people believe the same author may of created it.

All in all it’s just an underhand way of crappy self marketing.

I personally had one where they used the same font and logo (which I created) and name but added “icy” at the end and complained and nothing happened – in fact it was the same result I have ALWAYS received from support – no reply ever…. enough said.

Sorry for sounding like a grump but stuff like this really grinds my fears ;)

Hey guys,

There seems to be a lot of hinting and name dropping here at items which as you know is not allowed. If you have a copyright concern about one of your items please contact us at support and we’ll be happy to look into it.

@Jonathan – I do feel the need to defend support here, I’ve just checked your ticket history and we’ve replied to every single ticket you’ve ever sent in, so you may need to check your email server settings/spam folder.

Thanks guys!
