I will add this to my item preview images, so i need it in good english, if you can write it in good english, it would be great for me.

“if you download this file from a different place than graphicriver.net, you are committing a crime and you can be punishable by law”

ty in advance :)

Personally I would not even put that message there.. and here’s why. Pretend you are a buyer, and you have just stumbled upon your file page, and want to spend money on the file. Now you start reading that message that it may be possible to download your file from somewhere else, for free.. since you are now telling your buyers it’s a possibility, it may actually give people the IDEA to look for your file elsewhere and not spend money.

See what I’m getting at?

+1, wanted to say the exact same thing.

Avoid talking about that, that will cause your item (and the marketplace) more harm than good.

yeah, i was not sure about this idea, but piratery is affecting me a lot :( All my new files are being pirated in less than their first week… I send no less than 40 DMCA emails PER WEEK , and that number is just growing up and also the time i spend sending that emails…

Gosh, really, theres nothing i can do? So sad…

“if you download this file from a different place than graphicriver.net, you are committing a crime and you can be punishable by law”

This statement seems a bit threatening though, since most buyers are honest and are willing to spend money. Rather keep any mention of piracy off the Envato network, and do your DMCA take outs behind the scene. The reality is piracy is a big problem for all digital items online, so I doubt that message will have any effect, it will most likely do more harm than good, but I can see your reasons for doing it though! Just my 2 cents

Yea! DON ’T DO IT , it will spoil your sales.

Remember the PIRATES are “buying” your files and giving you sales, I them scan all the pirate sites and send DMCA notices and have them taken down, and trust me there are some popular sites which respond super quick to DMCA notices. So, in the end WE WIN .

Why am I saying this? We have to live with it, no matter what happens there will be a pirated site popping up somewhere or the other.

You don’t need to tell people what they already know. Doing this just you advertise the thing.

Don’t do that. I recommend you to add something like: “exclusive on graphicriver”, but nothing else. Don’t tell people on the preview image that the same file can be found for free.

It’s really sad that they have to pirate something for as low a few bucks. Man this is really sad and the worst thing is that nobody can do anything about it.

Wondering how many wordpress themes will get pirated now that they prices went up ;). Those people make big money out of our work and they are just to cheap to spend a few.
