As an exclusive author I’m not allowed to sell the theme elsewhere. But what about giving it away for free? Of course I wouldn’t just put up a link to download it, that would be stupid. I’m thinking about things like giving it out as a prize in a contest, giving it away to non-profits… With the hope that this would in turn generate more interest for the theme and drive more people to pay for it.

Oui, je suis français (à Paris). C’est pas une mauvaise idée, si il y a pas de conflit avec la charte de Themeforest je verrai ça.

Translation: it’s a good idea, if there’s no conflict with TF’s exclusivity clause I’ll think about it :)

According to google, the last DDStudios reply means:
There is no problem with ThemeForest if you do not sell a solo version DSP
