Premium plugins leaked

  1. Hi all,
    there are some websites that allow everyone to download almost every premium plugin for free.
    I would like to know if we developers can do anything to prevent this from happening, I already contacted some of these websites, and I am awaiting an answer, but I don't think they are willing to remove my plugin.

  2. Can you do things against it? Yes, things such as a DMCA takedown might help.
    Is it worth your time? Usually not.

  3. If you contact admins on the site about it. They'll take it down. They're extremely passive aggressive.

    Not really. If it's just been uploaded to a file sharing site, a DMCA has a better chance of working. It it's somewhere like blackspigot, probably not.

    Also, why do you have a link to a service that isn't even yours in your signature?
  5. There isn't much that will work, as if you send them a message they likely won't respond. If you have any rights or protection of the content then you can persue legal action, however it likely won't be worth your time and money.
