Can someone from Envato please clear this for me once and for all. If someone buys an extended license on CodeCanyon can he sell his version on external marketplaces without notifying and permission of the original author.
Simple answer is no.
From our License FAQ:
Can I purchase an item to use as a small element within a larger project that I plan to sell as stock or a template? For example, could I purchase a button graphic for a theme I plan to sell?
Use of items in larger stock projects is not allowed under the default regular or extended licenses, but there are exceptions.
Exception 1: When you purchase an extended license and get written permission from the author. Keep a copy of the email giving you permission.
Example: A CodeCanyon author has a slider and gives permission by email to a ThemeForest author to use the slider, under the extended license, in a theme.
Hope that helps
Can someone point me to the “mother thread” of discussion about the new badges, since both existing (and active) threads were locked a few hours ago?
Hey Simon. I think we’re going to take a break from the badges threads right now because I believe we have enough feedback to move ahead with future changes and there was just way too many personal attacks going on in those threads. Like I said, I don’t mind having a reasonable and constructive conversation, but those threads felt like they were bringing out the worst in people. I think we all need a bit of a breather
