waves Hi Kate :D

Hi!

I was in the office when everyone signed the ball, some days I’m working from my home office so it was really good timing :)

I saw most of the HQ support, community and quality staff sign it, and a few of the marketplace developers.

Hi Jan, Thank you for the post. I did some investigation into the Action items that don’t come with an .ATT file. I’d like to get your feedback. I will be in contact with you via support shortly.

Kind Regards, Kate.

You can use PSD, but it must be made with neat and tidy scalable shapes and not a raster image. I’ve used the drawing tools in PS and Ai, and Ai is much easier to use once you get started :)

Goodluck, I’m sure your sports flyer will be great even without the logos. :D

Unfortunately, no. It’s still considered an infringement because the trademarks are the property of someone else and you need their permission to use it.

The Copyright, Products and Trademark Usage Help Guide flowchart is a good place to check for Copyright and IP questions :)

Hi Everyone, I read the same article :)

I researched the usage terms for the Getty Viewer. It is intended to be used for non-commercial web content. For example, if you wrote a personal blog post and wanted to include an editorial image, you can use the Getty viewer to embed a non watermarked image in the post. It also has an artist credit that you cannot remove. The Getty Viewer can’t be used in stock items and you cannot use the photos in your preview images.

Embedded Viewer Where enabled, you may embed Getty Images Content on a website, blog or social media platform using the embedded viewer (the “Embedded Viewer”). Embedded Getty Images Content may not be used: (a) for any commercial purpose (for example, in advertising, promotions or merchandising) or to suggest endorsement or sponsorship; (b) in violation of any stated restriction; (c) in a defamatory, pornographic or otherwise unlawful manner; or (d) outside of the context of the Embedded Viewer.

If you’re looking for photos to use in a preview, we allow authors to use PhotoDune images, provided you credit the photographer/author with a linkback from your item description. You can find more information here – http://notes.envato.com/authors/using-photodune-images-in-your-marketplace-files/

Hi Everyone, As part of the Copyright and IP policy of the Envato marketplaces, the use of social media icons is permitted in 3 cases.

  1. If the social icons are part of a pack of icons in the Icons category.
  2. The icons are a key part of the design. Example: An interface or blogging theme that allows users to link their social profiles and/or share content with social networks
  3. Item previews can use social media icons to show compatibility. Example: a Facebook timeline cover that uses the Facebook icon in the preview.

If you’re preparing a design for print and include social icons as a design feature, the icons are not linking to the site they’re for and often are not being used in a way that the social network intended (to link to their site).

There should be no social media icons in print templates, unless the social media platform that the icon belongs to has usage guidelines that clearly indicate the use of their icon is permitted for print designs.

You can read about Envato’s trademark guidelines here – http://s3.envato.com/resources/legal/product-trademark-help-guideline.pdf

Another issue I would like to bring into attention is the multiple versions of the, practically, same logo, submitted by the same user, but with minor changes (like an extra line or arch, a circle or a few circles in different positions etc.).

The logo category is a bit tricky because the designs are sold as single uploads and can’t be added to packs like items from other categories are (icons, vectors and so on).

Thank-you for the feedback, I’ll look into the situation. :)
