What I still do not understand is:

if I buy an extended license of a codecanyon item, should I ask for author’s permission before using it in a theme to sell on themeforest?

I asked some codecanyon authors if they will allow me to use their items in a theme for themeforest, but no answer yet…So… should I just buy the extended license and just use it, or I need the author’s approval first?

For use in stock, you need approval. Keep in mind that some CC authors put a blanket statement allowing anyone to use their items on their profile page.

Which app template are you referring to? There is an Apps category on CodeCanyon, but that’s for personal use. If it’s not in that category and there is an extended license option, yes, you are correct.

No, a single regular license is fine based on what you wrote. The reason: ” It is one site. – It is on one domain. – It is one Wordpress installation.”

Ok how about this usage

I buy a jquery module extended license. I now use the full script unmodified and just create a backend for it so that the slide can be used and maintained in a Joomla, Drupal DotNetNuke or similar portal system

Is this allowed or not because I have seen a few around but if I read your license explanation

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. it seems this is NOT allowed am I correct?
Correct.

I sent out an email to every author who sold items primarily on the Tuts+ Marketplace, but have less than $50 in their account telling them how to get their earnings. If you are one of those authors, but you didn’t get an email, first check your spam folder, then shoot me a message.

As it states in the FAQ, you only need the regular license. I’m looking into the incorrect advice you previously received. If you can send more info via my profile page, that would be much appreciated.

Question: If I buy brushes or styles, for example, why can´t they be used to create a logo – not even with an extended license (IF I got that right)? Would have thought that would be covered with that one? Makes them partly useless for me. Got to think about buying elsewhere now….
The license for brushes is the Tools license, not the regular or extended. The rules for tools haven’t actually changed. They just got moved to a separate license to make things less confusing.
Many thanks for the explanation, LanceSnider! I think there should be a link added right beside the items (tools) in question – right now, when I click on “regular” or “extended license” I won´t easily find any hint that there is another special license applying to that item. Which isn´t less confusing, if you ask me… My two cents: Don´t make it too hard for people who are willing to respect a license and spend their money here to find and understand the rules. I think all the related links and a short explanation of the special terms for the item should be right beside the item description.

We felt that it would be confusing to have a link to the tools license from items that don’t have a tools license. If you go to brushes or any other tool, there’s a link right to the license right next to the price.

We had a glitch with the email and no one was notified. Thanks Zeplix for pointing that out! I’ve sent another email to all Tuts+ Marketplace authors to inform them. Sorry!
