Nothing wrong with someone trying to earn money off their hard work, and the theme does look very nice. Besides:

Free version will be available after 4weeks when the final stable version is released, only payed version owners have access to pre-release versions starting today.

From his DeviantART page - If any of those deviants or some other deviant asks you for a copy of your paid version you should directly inform me about it and report him to deviantart!

I have a zero tolerance policy to piracy and I'll take every pirated link down with a DMCA claim if I have to.

If you want it for free download the FREE version above.

I'm sorry, but that's so funny, did Microsoft give you permission to distribute their copyrighted works? You are distributing shellstyle.dll owned and copyrighted by Microsoft. It's listed on the properties -> details tab -> Copyright Microsoft Corporation. All Rights Reserved. You are also distributing shellstyle.dll.mui, probably owned my Microsoft as well, but I don't know about that one. I'm also pretty sure if I cracked opened the theme file itself I'd find tiny bit of Microsoft copyrighted code or a bitmap or something, but I don't care enough to actually do it.

Look, I don't care if you sell the whole OS and claim it as your own, but to get all high and mighty about DMCA bull****, while doing the same yourself is a bit laughable. You start reporting people for DMCA, and you'll probably get one yourself. You know something about glass houses and stones and something or another.

Nice theme btw, using the free version right now... maybe I'll pirate the paid version later.... ha ha just joking. :) or am I? :shiftyninja:

If the Content is a tool, an application, a piece of software, a brush, a texture, a wire frame, a template, a vector file or a similar functional or applied item for use in the making or production of other content, the personal right for the Buyer use the Content in the production of any work intended for any form of distribution including a commercial distribution or sale;

If the Content is of a type for use in the personal customization of a webpage or website (such as an avatar, skins, themes and backgrounds), the right to use the content on any number of webpages personal to the Buyer or as a personal identifier for the Buyer on the Web or within a online environment such as a game or X-box Live;

Seller and Buyer acknowledge that deviantART is not a party to this Agreement. Seller and Buyer agree to resolve all disputes arising out of this Agreement by themselves as fairly and efficiently as possible.

Yea something else doesn't seem right also:

*Will be free in most cases, for very advanced modifications there might be a small price, in that case we can negotiate about it

If I don't add that line people would have the right to get a whole different theme made and call it a modification.

I'm willing to make modifications but making a whole different theme is not something I want to do and that's why this line is there ;)

Unless you sell the images and a program that automatically patches the system files you are redistributing copyrighted code without permission, and profiting from it.

I imagine Microsoft would have something to say about it.

Nope I'm spreading microsoft copyrighted code but only asking money for the custom image resources, the copyrighted code still aplies to the microsoft license and is free to download from microsoft.com.

sure make sure to include your neowin username and/or email you want it to be send to.

It's no use pirating something with a free version which has for most of it the same.

The paid version only has some extra styles which might be worth pirating (if you like those styles more then the default style) but the extras like modifications of the theme aren't pirateable :p

When you buy my theme you buy the images not the existing files, those still cling to the original microsoft windows license agreement.

That would probably cover you, but you are packaging your theme in a .theme file and a .msstyles file, both I believe are protected by a Microsoft copyright. You are essentially selling a repacked Microsoft protected file. Your images will also be covered under "prior art", I think, since you are basically just editing existing files to make a new design. I know you are (probably) making them from scratch, but you are using their window metrics and design style as a guide/template, and that would probably be enough for Microsoft to claim it was copyright infringement. I am kinda basing these ASSUMPTIONS on Apple v. Samsung rulings, I am NOT a lawyer and am not trying to bother/scare/bore/mess with you in any way shape or form. I just found you invoking DMCA a little strange and funny, so I offered my two cents.

Below license doesn't break any laws or intellectual properties...

The license of my theme:

It still doesn't/won't protect you from a take down notice, just so you know, if DA gets a letter from Microsoft it will get yanked and your account frozen/removed (if they still do that?). I doubt you are making enough money to hire a lawyer to fight the take down notice. Big content (riaa, mpaa) use the same strategy to remove stuff all the time, they simply file the complaint and wait for a fight/reply, then elevate to court to see if anyone is willing to hire a lawyer to keep fighting.

Just so you know, I am NOT for anyone pirating your theme or anything else for that matter. I know it's hard work to make themes look good and work properly, because I attempted it years ago and it was a complete and utter disaster.

I am really using your free version of Glow and it is very nice, keep up the good work.

      WindowBlinds 10.87
      by Razvan Serea



      WindowBlinds is a software utility that allows you to completely change the look and feel of Microsoft Windows. It works by applying new visual styles, also called skins, across the entire user interface (i.e. start menu, window frames, title bars, menus, buttons, taskbar, scroll bars, ...) of the operating system. As a result, you gain complete control over the way Windows looks. Select from the many skins included with WindowBlinds or choose from thousands of skins available for download at WinCustomize.com.

      Features:

      Apply skins to your desktop Add backgrounds, textures and colors to skins Customize title bars and buttons Choose your own skin fonts Choose from thousands of FREE skins at WinCustomize.com Windows 10/8/7 support And more! WindowBlinds 10.87 changelog:

      Fixes the reported issue with UIS2 skins and not painting the text in the tree and the gap for some UIS2 skins with new explorer windows. Fixes an issue with electron framework apps (like Skype) being excluded when they have a standard caption Fix for Chrome losing frames in some situations. Firefox no longer has an issue with the min, max, close buttons clicking when Firefox is allowed to skin but the titlebar isn't set to be above tabs. (It will not use the WB skin in this mode) Firefox, when titlebar is above tabs now, paints the caption text correctly Thunderbird no longer paints black in the top right corner and the main window is excluded from WB Chrome / Edge paint the titlebar correctly on initial launch now PDFLite / SumatraPDF no longer has a missing tab bar. Due to the way this app works the titlebar with the tabs is excluded EM Lite app is now excluded as it is entirely custom and was experiencing issues with WB skinning Skype may now animate with WindowFX Start menus with animations may no longer show under the start menu when used with Start10 and WindowFX animations. Please note menus that use blur will not animate with WindowFX. Added dark mode support to WindowBlinds config UI. Force this via the top right cog if on Win7 or always want dark mode regardless of OS setting Worked around incompatibility with OpenShell/ClassicShell where it does not disable its taskbar skinning and so stops WB skinning the taskbar Auto excluded electron app main windows Note: Adobe Acrobat, when in-app container, mode no longer renders without frames on Windows 10 (It cannot use the WB skin however as it is sandboxed) Disclaimer: Neowin's relationship to Stardock.

      WhatsApp users can now set different wallpapers for individual chats and themes
      by Anmol Mehrotra



      WhatsApp has introduced a new update that gives users more control over their wallpaper preferences, allowing them to set different wallpapers for individual chats.

      Previously, WhatsApp allowed users to set one wallpaper that was applied across all the chats. Starting today, WhatsApp will allow users to set wallpapers for individual chats. The announcement came just after the company introduced new wallpapers for the IM app.

      If you are looking to set separate wallpapers for individual chats then you can follow the steps below:

      Open WhatsApp and select a contact Click on the three dots on the top right corner and select "Wallpaper". You will now see your current wallpaper. Click on "Change" and select a wallpaper from WhatsApp's gallery or click on "My Photos" to select a custom wallpaper from your gallery Click on "Set Wallpaper" at the bottom of the screen and then select "For this chat" Click "OK" and the wallpaper will be applied Along with wallpapers for individual chats, WhatsApp will also allow users to set different wallpapers for both light and dark themes. Lastly, the company also introduced a wallpaper dimming option that will allow users to select the brightness of the selected wallpaper. If you switch between light and dark themes on WhatsApp and want separate wallpapers, then you can follow the steps below:

      Open WhatsApp and select three dots on the top right corner Navigate to Settings > Chats > Wallpaper and select "Change" Select a Wallpaper from WhatsApp's gallery or use a custom one from your gallery Click on "Set Wallpaper" at the bottom of the preview wallpaper screen and the wallpaper will be applied to your current theme If you want different wallpapers for different themes, then you can go to Settings > Chats > Theme and toggle between Dark and Light theme. Once done, you can follow the aforementioned steps to set a wallpaper for the selected theme.

      WhatsApp users can try out the new features after downloading the latest app update. Android users can download the new update from the Google Play Store while iOS users can head to the App Store to download the latest update.

      Debian Project selects “Homeworld” theme for Debian 11
      by Paul Hill



      Debian 11 “Bullseye” is due sometime in 2021 and in preparation it has selected a theme called Homeworld that will be prevalent throughout the operating system. The Homeworld theme was created by Juliette Taka and is inspired by the German Bauhaus art movement which has its beginnings in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

      Users will come into contact with the Homeworld theme in several places when they use Debian 11. One of the first times will be in the Debian installer where the banner carries the Homeworld artwork. Debian 11 also includes a Homeworld background and a Homeworld-theme login screen.

      Following a call for proposing themes, a total of eighteen choices were submitted. A desktop artwork poll was opened up to the public and it received 5,613 responses which ranked the different choices. The Homeworld theme came out on top and will be used in Debian 11.

      If you’ve ever run Debian 8 or Debian 9 on your system, you’ll have come across Juliette Taka’s artwork already, she was the author behind the Lines and softWaves themes which were used in those two releases.
