I’m currently creating a demo for a new codecanyon product, i usually buy stock images for this purpose but with this specific product i need screenshots from mmorpg and fps games.
My question is, if i personally take these screenshots can i use them in the demo? As an example, i’m not going to use images with included logos of brands such World of Warcraft, Call of Duty etc. but real screenshots of these games.
What do you think? Thank you.
I just saw this question in the New Statements & Invoices (February 1st 2015) post from CodingJack:
Now that we’re the sellers, is it ok if we post a “Disclaimer” at the bottom of our item descriptions? I’d like to add something like what’s included in the MIT license: THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED “AS IS”, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AUTHORS OR COPYRIGHT HOLDERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, DAMAGES OR OTHER LIABILITY, WHETHER IN AN ACTION OF CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, ARISING FROM, OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOFTWARE OR THE USE OR OTHER DEALINGS IN THE SOFTWARE.
and the Collis answer:
Interesting question, let me check with the legal team.
I’m really interested in having an answer to this question because I would like ( as soon as possible ) to include a similar disclaimer in my items. ( because now authors have responsibility on their item, right? ).
Would also be great in my opinion if we could have “ready to use” disclaimers ( written by envato ) and apply them to the items sidebars ( without bloating the item page with this additional content ).
Basically i don’t want to sell a piece of software to many people, for few dollars, and be liable for damages or similar stuff.
An answer from the staff would be appreciated. Thank you.
In my opinion the only option now is to go back to the previous gray layout, you can’t fix this this one, is too bad.
With the “new white layout” + “the new badges” this marketplace honestly now looks a little bit more like a marketplace for amateurs and not a marketplace for professionals.
Thank you for the answer Damir, i think that a white background can really improve the experience and our sales but the problem in my opinion is how this update has been realized. I mean, there are parts of the marketplace that look really bad and there are also flaws.
I created these screenshots, so you can see exactly what i mean: ( please open them at full size, i used IE 11 to take these screenshots and as you can see the font rendering is awful and the overall layout looks really bad )
Please revert back in few hours/days, this update is embarrassing.
You have so many resources, i just don’t understand how you can come out with this mediocre design.
Thank you WebSmacker for supporting my theory, mine is that with the new badges we ( authors ) look a little bit more like amateurs than professionals and this decreases the perceived value of our products and as a consequence the overall value of the marketplace.
The same “decreased perceived value of our products” effect was achieved in the past when the item ratings were exposed and not hidden under the “more information” trigger.
I’m not sure what this post means. Are you trying to say that, when the new badges were introduced, your sales dropped?
Yes, i was trying to say that the popularity drop of themeforest, the popularity drop of codecanyon and the drop of my sales started on the August 21, exactly when the new badges were released.
