I’d like to bring attention to this issue to the community and Epic.
Apparently a lot of marketplace assets are being sold in Taobao by third party.
I’m not exactly reporting my asset , but to see these packs being distributed and someone else earning from it, Oh man.
Pirating / Torrenting is one thing. SELLING and profiting from stolen work is altogether a whole new level.
I’d like to know if Epic can do something about them. Since Epic is now partially owned by Tencent and have strong CHina presence , I assume they
have some form of legal power, China-style.

EDIT : For those who say nothing can be done is quite incorrect. Selling counterfeit item is like jaywalking. But not pirated/stolen things. China is stepping up their game on it. Including allowing blizzard to sue some developers earlier on.
this is a good example of what could happen if the right strings are pulled.
