Hey NoizMan, from extended license, item 8:
“You can’t re-distribute the Item as stock, in a tool or template, or with source files. You can’t do this with an Item either on its own or bundled with other items, and even if you modify the Item. You can’t re-distribute or make available the Item as-is or with superficial modifications.”
Reselling/redistributing a music track on a music CD or compilation is not permitted as this would be a redistribution of the item files as-is, be it commercially or not. In fact the example on the license page specifically says “For example: You can’t license a number of audio files, and re-distribute them as a package on a CD.”
Hope that helps!
Thanks everyone for the initial responses and feedback. As this project is already underway I’ll be closing down this thread, but it will remain here as a notice.
As mentioned, please refrain from calling out price changes in the forums to keep these tests as organic and meaningful as possible. If you have concerns about your individual items relating to a price change, please bring them directly to Envato support so we can assess and respond to them as effectively as possible.
Again rest assured we will be tracking marketplace statistics very closely, and will keep you informed of any major developments to pricing in the future. Thanks!
^ wait, what else is it? If it’s not part of your “test” why don’t inform authors and let them opt-out of this promotion?
Hey @revaxarts, the current discount on email templates is a promotional marketing initiative. The ongoing pricing tests we will be conducting as discussed in this thread are NOT promotional in nature, but are part of refining our longterm pricing strategy for the marketplaces.
In other words, assuming the current promotional event is a huge success, that does not in any way mean we would then roll out a permanent 30% discount across the entire marketplace. These initiatives are completely unrelated in nature and purpose.
If you have specific questions on the marketing promotion itself, it would be best to direct them to Alex in his related thread. Hope this helps clarify!
Hey everyone! I just want to clarify that the current marketing promotion is NOT part of the aforementioned pricing tests. As mentioned, we will not be publicizing these price changes to maintain the integrity of the tests and outcomes. Apologies for any confusion.

We’ve made a small, but important, change to our Tumblr pricing structure that now prices Tumblr themes with exceptionally advanced functionality into an elevated top tier of $30-35, according to our Review Team’s assessment. All Tumblr themes currently priced at $20 will rise to $30, and those at $21 will rise to $35, effective immediately.
We believe this price adjustment reflects both the high quality and demand for these themes, and hope the updated pricing encourages authors to continue building the awesome functionality that buyers are looking for.
