I think you shouldn’t remove it. Based on most of the authors opinions its a bad idea, and technically its true! These things could be used millions of times without an extended license, it would ruin the purpose of this!

A regular licence for a tool (font, addon, brush, etc..) has always allowed the user to install it on their computer, and use it to create as many documents (eg: psd, pdf, word, jpg, etc.) as they want.

Maybe be a bit clearer as to why you need the extended licence back.

I need an Extended Licence for my brush/addon/font/action because…...

good example..
I need an Extended Licence for my font because a customer wants to package this font file in a game they are selling.

bad example…
I need an Extended Licence for my addon because customers use to accidentally purchase it.

Licencing takes a long time for envato to review, please be patient while the staff look over your feedback and come up with a solution.

@dtbaker You are right about writing examples of use extended licenses and here are some I can think about.

I need an Extended Licence for my styles because…..

... styles can be used for texts or shapes on flyers and other print templates for sale on Graphicriver ... styles can be used for texts or shapes on web elements for sale on Graphicriver ... styles can be used for web themes for sale on Themeforest

I need an Extended Licence for my actions because…..

... actions can be used as a tool for creating effects to any print design or web design template for sale on GR or TF or for other markets on the web ... actions can be used as tool for stock photographers to fine tune their photos for sale on stock sites

That is what I can think about right now and I believe there are many more examples for extended license.

Really? I thought that You could use it only in one project.

dtbaker is correct. The way it was always worded stated the “Work” in the case of the add-ons listed was a single concurrent installation in your application. So one license, one application install able to use it at a time.

Normally for other elements the “Work” is using it in a single project.

I do think an ext license might still be needed, but not necessarily for all the reasons commonly listed.

If your style or action is included in another users end product (ie: a Print Template for sales on Graphic River) and someone can purchase that item, then use your original style or action to modify the purchased item, then an Extended Licence may be required.

If your style or action is included in another users end product (ie: a Print Template for sales on Graphic River) and someone can purchase that item, but your original style or action is not included in the purchased item (ie: it has been flattened and cannot be used like the original item), then that is fine under normal licence.

If the style or action is used by a single designer to create multiple documents for their clients (eg: printed brochures, letter heads or website designs) then the normal regular licence is fine.

I’m only speculating here, we’ll need staff to confirm anything down the track. But these things take time so please be patient :) And feel free to throw in any more examples of cases where an extended licence may be required.

So what You are saying with this point is, that I can buy, for example 3d map creator, draw country shapes, use the 3d generator and sell a nice set of country maps as for example png and jpg graphics or I can use it as cool background to a brochure or flyer?

... I’m patient, but my portfolio is full of styles, so I’m really currious if this will stay as it is and I’m really not happy with answer from Lance on why we removed the ext. license? Because You don’t need them. ;)

As I’ve written before, I’ve sold several styles with ext. license, but as You know I can’t contact the buyers, why they needed extended license. :/

I think the extended license is still necessary for these items, it’s just the terms of the old extended license for these items that should be changed.

This is another proof that the Extended License must remain:

(Photoshop Styles)

Does it seem right that the buyers use your HARD work on their project, paying only $ 5?

Is shameful.

May be it will help to completly change the add-ons (tools) licenses. I think that the best one could be to have:

License for Personal use You can use styles, actions, brushes, etc. for personal web, personal prints and other personal or non profit projects.

License for Commercial use You can use styles, actions, brushes, etc. for webs, prints and other projects for sale or resale, but You can’t sell or resale the “tool” as .atn, .asl and etc.

Personal license for the price as now costs the Standard license and Commercial license about 5-10 times higher as it will be used to make profit.

Nice catch Era!

I think if it is so important to remove the extended license let it go, but at least a little of price increase.

Actions and Styles are the most difficult and most wanted, why they’re priced low???
