It’s strange, because a lot of authors here are using fancybox with their themes. I’ll ask again fancybox’s author!

a lot of people are using fancybox version 1, which is under the mit license. The author of fancy box has put version 2 off the mit license.

I’m waiting for author’s reply. Then we’ll know that redistributing fancybox 2 with premium themes is allowed or not. License on fancybox’s page isn’t described enough and may be misleading…

Hello folks, below is a part of author’s reply:

“I have made a decision that Multi Domain License covers ONE theme for resale.”

So, it means that if someone want to resale fancybox2 needs to buy Multi Domain License ($89) for each theme.

So what you are saying Vasterad is you were using it against the terms…up until now. You’re lucky the author is a cool guy!

You really should have asked before actually using it, rather then after. 8-)

That’s good news though that the author has changed his mind. Because I’ve been bugging him to allow the use of FancyBox 2 in commercial themes. Yay.

Thanks Vasterad!

Unfortunately Fancybox2 is the real deal when you need a realy responsive and mobile friendly lightbox, but $89 for each theme is too much expensive to me.

View.js is also a very good responsive lightbox, wich is under the same license as fancybox2. Extended license is $30. http://finegoodsmarket.com/view/

I’m pretty sure it’s a one time fee of $89, otherwise you would have buy a single license each time which would be unwise and costly.

Unfortunately not. $89 fee for Multi Domain License covers only one theme for resale.

There should be a licence file in the package with licence terms that apply to your purchase. Unfortunately there is just a link to the webpage.

Currenty there is a statement which is applicable on the day of the purchase.

Multi Domain License – Allows fancyBox to be used with an unlimited number on any commercial website you develop in the future, at no further cost.

There is nothing about resale conditions but there is a sentence: “used with an unlimited number on any commercial website you develop in the future” and in my opinion it clearly allows the use of fancybox with unlimited number of commercial themes for multiple clients and I’m pretty sure it is a one time fee.

If the author doesn’t agree to such conditions he should put such information in the licence otherwise he may change his mind next week and inform via e-mail that even a paid licence is only for non-commercial. Nonsense.
