Downloading Premium WordPress Themes for free: Seriously?

There is a movement on the Internet that loves to distribute Premium WordPress Themes that are not created by themselves but by the leading WordPress theme companies. They promote downloading Premium WordPress Themes for free, in other words, stealing somebody else’s property. And while I could say I don’t understand it, I actually think I do. For the simple reasons that some people just do things they shouldn’t do and think in the long run they can get away with it. Well, I’ve got news for you.

Downloading Premium WordPress Themes for free is risky

Downloading Premium WordPress Themes for free is as risky as it gets. I recently spoke to one of the leading companies that release and sell premium WordPress themes when I reported a website in some obscure country that was giving away their WordPress themes for free and if they think they could do something about it. To my surprise they had to chuckle a little and I asked why. Because, wasn’t this bad for their brand?

The answer was that yes, it wasn’t that good for their brand but there was little they could do about it. So I asked why the guy chuckled. He told me that with not a single exception these premium themes contained malicious code which can be recognized by the search engines, so they were merely killing themselves by downloading these premium WP themes. Besides that, they will have numerous problems with the themes when they work with them and this is costing so much time, that downloading premium wordpress themes is basically more expensive than just buying the real deal.

Stealing is stealing and is something that is frowned upon to say the least. But I must say it made me feel a lot better to hear these thieves are shooting themselves in the foot. And probably more than once. I also saw it in the SERPS, because Google even started leaving notices, stating they are not showing certain results because sites are distributing illegal copies of Premium WordPress Themes.  Which makes me a lot happier about the whole thing. Or as they say in English: he that mischief hatches, mischief catches. 🙂

NOTE: I am talking here only about Premium WordPress Themes that are sold by companies that sell them. There are of course also websites like WordPress.org that distribute perfectly fine themes for free.
