Can we get also clarification about using product images in our previews? I see a lot of iPhones, Macbooks etc. in theme previews.

@dignotion .. thank you for summing it up nicely ..

@doru .. would you be okay with being thrown out of the marketplace one day without knowing why? the least i expect envato to do is to give us an explanation in every instance as to why they moved towards banning us, terminating our account etc. because we’re all working really hard here to make an honest earning.

as dignotion said, envato has been real good in listening to its users and it is definitely a “lawyer’s lingo” .. i just expect envato to make it more “author-friendly” or at least discuss with us authors why they feel they would need to ban some users without telling them the reason ..

no I will not like that, but what you ask have nothing to do with one likes or not.

Your relation with envato, is a pure business one, and is based on a contract with very clear terms on who do what and why.

When you create an user account, you should had read all the terms and if you did not like one of them you should just walk away. No one put a gun to your head and forced you to create an author account on this marketplace. Is harsh but is the reality, you can’t come now and start complaining about some clause in a contract that you did not like.

First, no one deleted your account without reason, so I don’t understand why you think this is some evil plan from envato, second that clause is on every website I have an account on. Really, just check the terms on whatever forum you have a membership. Is not something that only envato have, is everywhere.

check google terms of service:

http://www.google.com/accounts/TOS

at “13. Ending your relationship with Google”

they say:

“13.3 Google may at any time, terminate its legal agreement with you if: ...

the provision of the Services to you by Google is, in Google’s opinion, no longer commercially viable.”

they can shut down your email address (for example) if they think they can’t get enough money from you/using you. what abut this? nice, no?

As I said.. let’s hope Envato didn’t really intend to copy certain corporations’ practices.. Google’s Terms & Conditions (as well as their Privacy Policy) are not something to be proud of and shouldn’t be an example of doing fair business. Being fair & honest doesn’t contradict doing business, and some may say it’s also a good way of getting some good karma :) We are all here for business (and for fun and for discussing philosophically in the forums ;) ) and exactly for that reason we need the team to be as transparent as they can be with us the authors (the engine of these marketplaces) regarding the agreement terms..I hope we’ll get an official response about this next week.

@doru .. just because everyone does something doesn’t make it right .. and yes no one put a gun to my head and made me be an author here .. i’m here because i can earn money doing something i love (the very principle envato was built on) .. the community aspect of the marketplace is great and overall envato is doing a good job managing things .. and just because one clause is an itch, doesn’t mean i’ll leave .. there’s an educated way of dealing with such things which is to discuss matters as such in an open forum (which i’m doing) and hope that envato listens (as it has in the past) .. and yes, i haven’t been banned, nor have i done anything that would get me banned .. i just speak for everyone that IF someone does get banned (which can be me, you or anyone for that matter for whatever reason) we would love to hear why such a thing happened .. because sometimes (according to the terms and conditions) you may not even get a reason or even a chance to explain your side of things .. which i find bothersome considering how hard every author works here and to lose everything like that is not justified without a reason .. all i ask for is a minor amendment in the terms and conditions that if such a thing happens, authors get a reason .. and i’m sure majority of the authors would agree with me .. :)
