> Howdy,
> we just noticed that a theme author has copied our theme almost 1:1 and
> uploaded it to WordPress.org:
> https://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/19505
> That theme is a 1:1 copy of our theme which you can find here:
> https://wordpress.org/themes/mh-magazine-lite
> Please have a look at the authors theme screenshot and then compare this
> to our theme demo:
> http://www.mhthemes.com/dev_magazine/
> It seems some people really lack any kind of honor, honesty and in this
> case even creativity…
> What can we do to resolve this situation? Is the author allowed to upload
> this copy?
> Thanks,
> Michael
