but if you’re giving them for a facebook share, that doesnt’ mean those people are your clients.
They will become, for sure. What prevents me to agree with him?

You can see it here: http://themeforest.net/item/lemonado-multipurpose-mobile-web-application/5778052 Please see “Get inspired: Built with Lemonado” section in the bottom. I used my own theme in freelance work. And I found lots of my clients on Facebook

Can’t you see you’re the only one saying this is allowed? Everybody says you are not allowed, the envato TOS says the same, who do you think is right? Why risk your account for this? ;)

@Gramatton:

Using it for your freelance projects and client work is one thing. “Giving it away” for free on social media is something else – read it as “SELLING IT for a SHARE/LIKE”. And your dog is NOT your client. Seriously dude…

I really don’t get it… why is this even a debate and already on page two. The license states clearly: REDISTRIBUTION.

We’re having a conversation for the sake of what? Trying to find excuses to cheat the system?

If your Facebook channel is such an important client/revenue stream there are always ways to market yourself without getting in conflict with the exclusivity terms. Offer free customization – at Microlancer level -, give away “extensions” to your items. Things not included in the sales package. Offer extra CSS styling… whatever, different items.

This is a debate on an invented issue… And I wonder what clients are those and what are they willing to pay for real work if they need you to gift them a $50 theme…
