Placed a ticket on this last month. Below is the response I received from Envato Support (Aug 14th):

Hey Mike,

Thank you for your message.

Ultimately, it is up to the author to be sure they have obtained all the necessary licenses for any assets / resources used in the creation of the item or portions of your item that you didn’t not create yourself. Please include a note to reviewers where they can find the icon’s license/statement that you have permission.

Upon submission, you agree to the following item: “Any images, sounds, video, code, flash, or other assets that are not my own work, have been appropriately licensed for use in the file preview or main download. Other than these items, this work is entirely my own and I have full rights to sell it on ThemeForest.”

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

In regards to font-kit for social icons.

Doesn’t this fall under the same instance as using web fonts / font-face?

Its down the the licence included / provided with the font.

I currently use http://fontello.com to custom build my ‘icon’ fonts. All fonts are allowed to be included with proper credits. Credits are given in my documentation.

@ProgressionStudios – apparently this has now been altered, hence the reason for this thread started by @mikemcalister.

@mikedidthis – well that’s the problem, all fonts (pictograms or not regardless to open source or GPL etc) are included in the current exclusion – i.e. you currently can only ref google web fonts to pull from google and not include ANY font files of ANY kind right now.

I’m confused… An HTML template that features icon fonts was recently approved.

Kinda the point of this thread ;) We’re looking for official clarification.

This is about license. Font’s license is not mentioned: “Fontello’s code (all files, except fonts) is distributed under MIT license.” https://github.com/fontello/fontello#readme

This is a temporary policy, if I remember correctly; I can’t provide much information either. I’ll ask Jarel to chime in this thread though.

Just so you know Envato has a legal department with a high qualified lawyer specialized in IP & Copyright so I’m pretty sure they know what they’re doing.

I don’t know what’s all the fuss about this — sure it’s a bit of a pain — but you just need to place an empty folder called ‘Fonts’ and write in the docs where they can download and where to paste the fonts files.
