Hi.

I was wondering if envato doesn’t care about that some of the users here brake the rules.

I reported a case where a user from TF is selling templates as exclusive author, both at the same time he is selling the templates at another place.

As I know exclusive means only here at envato. Right?

Well, whatever.

I reported this case and nothing happened. I still see that the templates are available for sale and this guy is still a exclusive author.

Not that this hurts me, but it’s unfair and against the rules.

Oh goodness, Envato does care. If you reported the case then Envato staff will take care of the rest. There is also the possibility that the author isn’t violating the rules like you think. Don’t worry about it though, once it’s been reported then the Envato staff will do the rest. :-)

There are always small misses in between but I’ve never seen Envato leave an issue behind, unsolved. So let’s make no mistake, they deserve the full respect for that ;)

Hey John,

This happened recently on FlashDen with the same scenario, but in the end the author had to pull down his files due to breach of contract / agreement. Took about two weeks for Envato to close the case. All in all, Envato doesn’t tolerate this kind of abuse.

Allowing the system to work often takes a little patience, but the admins here are generally pretty thorough about implementing the rules once any potential conflicts are brought up.

I honestly believe that envato should “scrap” the Exclusive Author option, unless it of course generates more members.

The way I see it is that unless envato can produce more members who are likely to purchase something from an author, then the rules should change – allowing anyone to sell their stuff anywhere an author wishes.

Authors need to make money, and they simply aren’t making anything decent. Envato undervalue the work that is contributed to it’s marketplace. Authors need to make money and therefore should have the right to sell their content elsewhere – thus still receiving the same amount of sales commission – 40-70%.
