Hi, Error on the link – “What assets can I use in my items?” under this page https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/203039194-Asset-Resources
I see what you are referring to – I will Leave this Marked for a Staff Reply.
They should come along soon and fix it ( we hope ).
But it is going to a Page Not Found.
EDIT I believe it should go here: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/203269510-What-assets-can-I-use-in-my-items-
Moved to item Discussions
Requirements for PPT submissions would include any assets used in the item.
Of course, only those assets that you are legally allowed to sell.
You cannot include Photographs that you don’t have permission to transfer ownership.
Screenshots of the various slides is useful too.
You can also, create a video and link to it in the description for viewers to preview.
Probably best to use the Link Generator, and follow that format:http://graphicriver.net/make_money/affiliate_program
Moved to All Marketplaces Discussion area
Personally, I find that Commercial Free Images, etc., are acceptable, with the proper releases.
As far as other people using Public Domain Images for their items, that’s another thing, that I cannot explain here.
There are various similarities within Logo Design, some pass and some do not.
On the other note: If a seller is selling in the Marketplaces, and that item is available elsewhere – perhaps they are not an ‘Exclusive Author’
If you find that the image you’re referring to are from Exclusive Authors, there’s nothing for you to do but Report such items.
For Reporting such misuse, please refer to this page: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/categories/200211980
This is my personal opinion on the matter as an author. This post/opinion may not reflect that of Envato on this matter.
