Hey everyone! I know that you were hoping for immediate action and I’m sorry that that’s not what you got. I did look into it and I think there’s potential, but we haven’t had time yet to really dig in deep or make actual changes. I know that this is important to you and that no one wants to feel like they’re being put on the back-burner. For that I’m sorry. I don’t have a date for you yet, but please know that I haven’t forgotten. Thanks for double checking either way!

Okay, this is a big one. Let’s go. :)


ONE I buy a single Extended License for 12 different Audio Tracks, making 12 Extended Licenses in all. I combine these Extended Licensed files to accompany a Video for sale to unlimited customers in various formats, including Hard Copy DVD, and Downloadable MP4, for commercial gain. The music is unaltered, and used as is, to accompany the Video. The Visuals for the Video is not Licensed from Video Hive, and uses no other content from any Envato Market Place except the aforementioned Audio Files. The Video Visuals are either original or licensed appropriately from elsewhere. The End Product, or Larger Work – being the final commercial Video DVD or Downloadable MP4 – will not be for sale on any Envato Market Place, but will be made available for sale through multiple other sales, none of which are governed by any other License. They are just Outlets, such as websites, and stores.
So basically like using music in a movie? Yes, that’s fine.
TWO I buy a single Extended License for 12 different Audio Tracks, making 12 Extended Licenses in all. I combine these Extended Licensed files to accompany a Video for sale to unlimited customers in various formats, including Hard Copy DVD, and Downloadable MP4, for commercial gain. The music is unaltered, and used as is, to accompany the Video. The Visuals for the Video are sourced from an After Effects Project File, Licensed from Video Hive, with an Extended License, but uses no other content from any Envato Market Place except the aforementioned Audio Files and footage adapted from the edited After Effects file. The End Product, or Larger Work – being the final commercial Video DVD or Downloadable MP4, will not be for sale on any Envato Market Place, but will be made available for sale through multiple other sales, none of which are governed by any other License. They are just Outlets, such as websites, and stores.
Same as above. :)
THREE I buy a single Extended License for 12 different Audio Tracks, making 12 Extended Licenses in all. I combine these Extended Licensed files to accompany a Video for sale to unlimited customers in various formats, including Hard Copy DVD, and Downloadable MP4, for commercial gain. The music is altered, through the addition of overdubbed additional audio content, such as Sounds or Speech. This additional Audio Content is not acquired from Audio Jungle or any other Envato Market Place, but is either original or licensed appropriately from elsewhere, and the resulting sound track is used to accompany the Video. The Video is not Licensed from Video Hive, and uses no other content from any Envato Market Place except the aforementioned Audio Files, and is either original or licensed appropriately from elsewhere.

The short answer to this one is no, you can’t. Here’s the explaination: http://audiojungle.net/licenses/faq#faq-section-audiojungle

Hey guys! I’m glad that most of you are happy with this change. Let me add just a little bit of detail for clarification.

Does this apply to footage? Nope.

Will Envato add the watermark to previews? No.

Why did you remove them? First off, we really don’t like rejecting your files. We know how frustrating it can be, especially when it’s something so trivial as a forgotten watermark. Also, watermarks are to prevent theft, but in most cases, you can’t really steal from a AE Project preview. For example, in a logo revealer you couldn’t just swap out the logo without the source.

Will I get rejected if I add watermarks? Nope. This is just an option to make things easier for authors. If you have one that you worry could get stolen without a watermark, you’re more than welcome to add one.

Hey guys. Sorry this is taking so long. As you probably know, when it comes to legal, changes happen slowly, but don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten. The legal, dev, and growth teams are all hard at work trying to make things happen. We’ll give you updates when we have them.
Hey Lance, this sounds like you are actually working on new licenses. Is that correct or are you “hard working” at something different?
Working on licenses. Sorry I wasn’t clear. :)

I’m glad that most everyone is happy with the change! I see that a few people have mentioned that their file prices haven’t changed or if they have, they’re still under $5. Please note that this change only occurred on the vectors category, not all GR items. Also, even though we won’t price new items at $3 moving forward, there are some items that went from $2 to $3. That’s already a 50% price increase and we didn’t want buyers to have prices on items double in a day. It just didn’t seem fair.

Yeah, the regular license is fine in this case. You’re not reselling the final product, you’re just making it for your client. This is no different than a freelancer selling a final business card design to a client.

I apologize for my shameless bragging. I’m just really proud that my wife and I both made it through. http://www.spartanrace.com/utah-obstacle-racing-spartan-beast-2013.html
Congratulations Lance! I was at the Utah Beast too. It was a great race. Which one is your next? I’m doing the PA in less than 2 weeks.
What’s the PA?

Thanks, everyone!

Someone just pointed out the Broadcast Packages were missed. That was my mistake and I’m fixing it now. Sorry!
