    Hi guys.
    On this website - http://assetstore.unitylover.com/unity_asset/solar-system there is download link to one of my assets. I can bet you find a lot of assets there and it is illegal to sell or distribute our work without authors approval.
    Unity is there a chance that legal action can be taken against this dodgy website?

    Submit a DMCA notice to the website. If that is ignored then submit one to the website hosting company, a link to their DMCA takedown procedure is https://www.choopa.com/legal/tos/

    Great, thanks.
    I am surprised unity legal department have not done it already as there are thousands of packages for download for free. It must be hitting publishers and unity financially.

    It’s publisher’s responsibility not Unity’s. Plus for all Unity knows, that site has the rights to sell those assets.

    Also Unity would rather not do more work than they have to.
