Protecting Your Copyright 004

We all know that piracy can feel like a major problem for those who create digital content. Content owners, like our Marketplaces authors, have different philosophical approaches to the piracy issue. Some seek to fight all piracy they come across, some want to find ways to motivate users of content to pay for it, and some choose to focus on what they do sell and not change the ways of users who want all their content for free. Ultimately, this is your personal choice (and there’s more below on the path Envato takes on the piracy issue). Continue Reading

GoogleAuthorship

Many of you would have seen that when you search for something on Google you might see some results with the image of a person next to it. For the uninitiated, that is Google Authorship in action. From a visual point of view, Google authorship gives you the photo and byline next to your website’s results on Google.

This is one of the rich snippets that is shown in search results, and it allows Google to associate a person with the content on the page. Traditionally, Google has always been good at identifying good content and passing on authority for quality content on to the domain it’s published on. It never really associated that content to the person or individual who created it. Google authorship is slowly changing that.

Whenever I get together with Ciprian Turcu (CleanScript), the first thing we talk about is, “How are your sales?” We’ve known each other since we were kids, and he introduced me to the Envato Marketplaces, telling me about “a ThemeForest for music”—AudioJungle.

He’s always been an inspiration for me, a person who absolutely refuses to compromise or let himself become distracted from his passions. Most of our talks are about all things Envato, so I decided to turn one of them into an author interview. We met up in one of (our hometown) Alba Iulia’s many chic cafes, and then took a walk around the city’s newly restored citadel.

IdEA-at-Prambana-Temple-660x399

Born of a need to express themselves more freely in their native language, the IdEA group began as a thread on our forum which then lead to an ‘unofficial’ Facebook group with more than 1000 members currently. One of the organisers, Budi, contacted me about their meetup in Indonesia, and I asked him if we could share his story with you.
