if you sell 100% GPL licensed theme here on themeforest, you cannot charge for support nor updates. You sell a license and then you need to support and update the theme forever for free. No support fees, subscription fees, absolutely no difference to split licensed theme.
That’s not true, unless it’s sarcasm.

why not true ? that’s how TF works. In theory you could charge an extra for the support but i don’t think you would be allowed to advertise such service here.

the envato forums don’t have a filter system like Wordpress? I mean like :
add_filter(“the_thread_title”, search_for_baba_spam_and_kill_it_with_fire);
function search_for_baba_spam_and_kill_it_with_fire($title) {
    // who cares, i'm not a mod BWAAAAAAAAHAHAHA
    return $title;
}

There is less chance for a buyer to find single theme that fits for 3+ consequent website projects. Any regular buyer on TF wont feel ease with tinkering single design to fit multiple websites; while they can just find most matching one for another 30-50 dollars. But for plugins, the multi use possibility is very high (ex: menus, sliders etc). And also invested time on researching a plugin features/options/compatibility testing going to be utilized for future works for sure. I pointed from that perspective.
That’s true for buyers handling their own site but we have a lot of web agencies who use TF to provide their client cheap packages. In case of general / minimal themes, the look of the site can change a lot by using different content, not to mention most of them have multiple skins and color/font options right in the admin panel.

The chances for them to reuse the same theme again and again are high imho (50$ isn’t that low if they resell for 150-300). Unlike plugins, which may require js/css hacks to fit a site, turnkey themes with a lot of features, generally offer a much pain less experience for the setup.

In the above scenario, the GPL could play a big role, not being limited by the “single use” clause like the Regular license.

Also we need to consider that an usual TF buyer doesn’t going to show interest on GPL – it is nothing different.

Regular/Extended = single use restriction, GPL = no such thing.

We had the review manager apologies and him taking full responsibility for the “woo theme approval” case. Whether there was pressure or not from the upper floors on the review team itself, it was made clear that nobody is above the rules and anomalies will be fixed.

I think we should accept that and move on for now. For sure, all those themes will get a lot of attention from other authors in the following days.

13b just says “if GPL licensed item, none of what we said so far applies anymore”. Since GPL grants redistribute rights, the buyer can use as many times as he wants.

There is a question about 100% GPL which raised multiple times and still unanswered: how do you deal with exclusive authors opting in for GPL ?

Exclusive authors are not allowed to sell/redistribute their own TF items elsewhere but for GPL themes, those rights are granted to anybody and this includes the author who released the GPL code to begin with.

Please provide an official answer to the above.
