I second that!! The download location doesn’t seem to allow resumed downloads, so I’m not getting much joy using the download manager. I’ve tried at least 5 times now to download the file, and it keeps stopping at various points. Latest 72% in. Very frustrating!
I’ll be honest I haven’t read every post in this thread so I am sorry if this has already been brought up, but what happens to all the people who are selling wordpress plugins then?
As far as I know, plugins have always fallen under the GPL ?
Haha well done! I’ve still got a long way to go
I think this is a pretty cool idea. I’ve played around with F connect, but didn’t think about adding it to a theme. Great idea tpncorp!
Mine isn’t so creative Just a leet-ish version of my real name, David.
As an author I would be against a general license allowing others to use my files. For non exclusive authors, permission based usage is fine, but in general the rights of my files are still licensed to me, and I would like it to stay that way.
Well if he created and owns the rights to the file you want to use, then if you get his permission to use it, I don’t see a problem.
Exclusive authorship benefits all the groups involved. Firstly, Envato get to be the ‘Go To’ place for themes that can’t be found elsewhere. So if they don’t follow up, they’re hurting themselves more, trust me. So no reason to get upset.
Secondly, authors get higher commissions because of this. It’s the same in any field. You need to work out what’s more beneficial to you as an author. Most prefer the simplicity and ease of use of just one Market Place – and so prefer to use Exclusive Authorship on Envato. If you’re not a fan, then don’t be an exclusive author. It’s what works for you personally.
For buyers, it offers a single place to look for some of the best files on offer around the web. Exclusivity means that buyers are more likely to find what they want on Envato Marketplaces. This in turn means more authors spend their time submitting exclusively.
It’s win win, and if you don’t personally like it, you’re not forced to have to use it. Weigh up your options, and make a choice that’s right for you. Don’t hate the system that has been put in place to benefit you.
Mastergreed is right, you’re not allowed to resell or distribute files, whole or in part, in any way unless the author has given you permission to do so.
