What I fear the most is authors advertising their items as “100% GPL = unlimited usage!”. The potential for that type of abuse could be easily squashed by only allowing non-exclusive authors to offer 100% GPL. Because after all, the whole idea of being an exclusive author and also offering items as 100% GPL is silly to begin with.

Exactly my point.

I were a theme seller, I’d look for as many outlets as possible to sell my themes through. TF is nothing more than a directory – admittedly with strong traffic figures – so do like WooThemes and sell your stuff on your own site and here too and anywhere else you find.

@Kiss_Collective I believe that is why we are still asking and waiting for a reply to the whole GPL / exclusive agreement we are in – I don’t see how Envato can enforce the exclusive agreement anymore. However this is a sensitive issue as earning percentages are based on this and people earn their living based on the percentage they have worked very hard to reach.

EDIT: I have yet again clicked “Request staff reply” – several times myself now and others have stated so.

Hi guys,

I’ve forwarded your questions and a reply is on its way shortly.

p.s: d’zinc forwarded this a few days ago as well, but due to the complexity of the issue in question the reply took a bit longer to get sorted.

Thank you for your patience.

It is such a shame Envato doesn’t have time to answer such questions when they are addressed…
