The following websites have been found to purposely remove copyrights from the new Halloween V3 theme. Too bad they weren't smart enough to remove the link to CZ as well!
[ Register or login to view links on this board. ] //Edit - this website replaced the copyright
[ Register or login to view links on this board. ] //Edit - this website replaced the copyright


In both instances, the image is still the same, and the link still there, so that means they intentionally blanked out the credit line. It's not just an issue of a missing image or anything. This is something that was done on purpose to take away the credit from CZ.

Also, I found this site that has removed the copyright from the Halloween V2 theme:

Considering the number of people who have downloaded this FREE theme I guess only finding a couple of rippers so far isn't bad. Until the day that we stop offering FREE themes. When that day comes, you'll know who spoiled it for the rest of you.

It is getting to the point where we WILL deactivate all free theme releases and any more seasonal themes will be made commercially available instead.

It takes more effort to remove the copyright than it does to leave it in. Why make that extra bit of effort when it will spoil the oppurtunity for others to obtain such themes.

I am the owner of the uQ site and i was sent the theme by a friend, i also wasnt aware there was a copywright missing which has now been replaced. I apologise for this as it wasnt an intentional act.

I am thinking about using the H2 theme for halloween. To make sure I don't rip you guys, am I allowed to edit the header graphic as long as I leave the copyright in the lower right corner and leave the code alone? I haven't installed the skin yet but, my site's at [ Register or login to view links on this board. ]

I also know of a site that is well known for ripping peoples work off. I won't post the URL here but if you CZ folks are interested to see if they have cheesed anything from you, PM me and I'll give you the URL.

Thanks in advance!

Tom

Hi Tom,

You are more than welcome to edit the theme in any way you wish, as long as the credits in the source code and the credit line at the bottom stay intact.

Thanks for asking!

Let me know when you're done, I'd love to see what you do with it! icon_razz.gif
