Hi there, i am curious. I want to operate as a web design freelancer using the themeforest themes as customized finished websites for clients. I think i just need the regular licence. Is this correct? Also, can i put webdesign by “my company name” in the footer or do i have to leave the developer who designed the theme? or Copyright to “client”? Please advise, thanks

Regular license is okay. I’m personally against “web design by YOUR NAME”, one thing is to create a website based on a theme and another thing is to write you designed it and taking all the credits.

The best copyright would “Copyright © YEAR, Company name”, without any “designed or developed by…” :)

Yeah I agree with the others, I wouldn’t put “Web Design By: YOURNAME” as you could run into legal troubles for taking credit for other peoples work as you really didn’t “design it”. :)

My suggestion would be to use “website by…”. That way you aren’t specifically claiming design or development credit, and it’s also technically correct, as you created the finished product.
