Yup. My file got pirated.

As many of you know I am an aspiring author on the Envato marketplaces. If you're unfamiliar with Envato you really should check it out. In short I produce high quality websites and components that if done for a client would cost hundreds/ thousands of dollars, but instead sell for a couple bucks on the marketplace (I mostly produce for Activeden aka Flashden).

Earlier this month I saw a hugh spike in my files' traffic, and that usually translates into higher sales, but sales actually went down. I couldn't figure it out; until today that is.

It seems that my top selling file has been leaked to the darker/ shader side of the intertubes. Yup that's right. You can get one of the best bits of flash code I've produced with a simple click. So put on your best eye patch and pirate away.

You can preview the file here, and it's still available for purchase here.

And if the price tag of $15 is really going to break the bank and you just can't stop your swash-buckling-self you can venture to the darker side of the web and get my file here. (As a heads up be careful where you click and what you click. Sites like the one hosting the illegal download of my file are often traps for "banner ad hell" with misleading banners and promises of faster downloads with a monthly fee. Please don't sign up for anything I think it's got to be a crock. I think the link you're looking for is the "slow download").

I don't know how long the illegal download will be available (I've emailed the sites asking them to remove the file) so get it while the gettings good.

Seriously, $15 is going to break the bank? Honestly. I hope your sales are back soon.
