Can’t imagine doing anything else. Though it’s not easy, don’t be afraid to jump with both feet, it’s worth it. Never look back to regular jobs.

I heard some loud music nearby and I was wondering the other day what that was. I had no idea how could I find out. It was probably a public gathering organized around the World Cup finals, but it doesn’t matter now.

Another time I was visiting LA and had no way of knowing what public gathering I could attend, all I knew that e3 was held back then.

Facebook has events but in my understanding you have to be invited (or spam invited) to know about them, or find them linked somehow. How could I just browse ALL events the world has to offer? Probably as an “events around me” when I look at my phone and by location and time it would find all events, anywhere. Not just places like foursquare (that’s already pretty good), but actual events (held at places or public squares, parks etc) what you see on Facebook everyday. I’m not talking about news events, but conventions, parties, concerts, public conferences, meetups. Without having to know the name of the event or knowing someone that attends. If an event is not invite-only and relies on people spreading the world, why is it not accessible to people walking nearby, trying to find something fun to do? They could walk by not knowing that there was an interesting event a few blocks from their location. Is there some app like this? If there is, it could be so small that is not used by everyone already. That’s why it should be on Facebook or related to Facebook in some way. Does it offer this in some way I don’t know about?

Rating could be higher. Nuff said.

Simple answer is – If you’re an Exclusive author you can’t give your item away for free to anyone by any means. That includes other sites, your own site, email, by carrier pigeon or any other way :) So it would be a ‘no’ to each of your questions.

The amusing thing is it quite clearly says on http://codecanyon.net/author_guide in the rules:

Do not buy your own items or engage in other conduct with the intention of defrauding the Marketplaces or other authors.

So according to KingDogs interpretation it’s not possible to use your own items yourself because as an exclusive author you can’t use your own items for free on your own site and you also can’t buy your own items… go figure.

Gosh xD So those few days have passed, we would like to see some official reply, no rush but duh. Hi Scott!

If that’s the case, then the ToS should be updated immediately accordingly, because what’s saying in the Knowledge base is basically that you cannot sell it on another site, while what you’re saying is a whole different thing with way much more restrictions.

I agree. It would be nice not having to find legal loopholes.

So what we can do is let them purchase via affiliate URL (if it doesn’t work you lose 30% but it doesn’t matter) then paypal them the amount. No loss and it’s free to them in practice, while techinally it is not as long as Envato gets paid. Well they don’t, if the affiliate thing works. Sigh.

I guess the official word for this is rebate. The bright side is that each user increases your sales count. And you can offer the rebate publicly (it’s your money that you are giving away/back, and you are not messing with a license).

The “on another site” bit is important, so if it’s not done on a site but via email then I’m allowed? Yeah Gewora it seems like person to person is good!

As an exclusive author, is there any way like one of the following, in which it’s allowed to give away a copy of my product?

  • - Charity (some non-profits approached me)
  • - When building a site for a friend can I use my own product without buying a license
  • - As a sample to other developers to help them build compatibility
  • - In exchange for an unbiased review (bloggers)
  • - As a prize of contests relevant to the product (held on the preview site?)
  • - To let someone who really wants to briefly try it, before purchase?
Have you ever done this?
