Hi TF community,

Quite often I see freelancers talking about buying themes from here for their client projects.

My question is;

  • What is their actual job (USP)?
  • Do they let the client know that they cannot resell the themes/templates?
  • Do they purchase extended licenses so they can do whatever?

Thanks for any feedback.

I’ve seen people like that who call themselves web developers, yet they don’t know anything about customizing a theme and they then come to the author for support. They piss me off.

Ok yeah but that’s the freedom that we offer :) they can do whatever they want as long as they follow the terms.

If you’re professional you will tell your client that you’re buying a theme, of course you will charge for customizations in fact that’s what I do with quick projects. But if you prefer to not tell anybody, yes you can because you paid money and is not forbidden, however it’s unprofessional IMHO .

That would be illegal in many countries. Pretty sure that would be illegal in Denmark.

I’m pretty sure it’s not illegal to do that, what do you think white label products are? A company produces a can of no brand cola, sells them to a supermarket and the supermarket put their own packaging on, it happens everywhere.

You don’t have to tell the buyer where you got the product from by law, it may break the terms of contract but it certainly is not against any countries laws that I know of, especially in Europe which has a free market.
