@Endat thanks. License/law stuff really confuses me.

I asked the same question in another forum thread (though I do not remember in which one) and I did not receive an official answer. So I opened yesterday a Support ticket asking exactly the same thing. I want to use a graphicriver item as a codecanyon thumbnail (that 80×80 jpg/png small thumbnail preview) and I do not know which license I need.

Also, the regular license states that
You can’t use an Item in a logo, trademark, or service mark. Looking for a logo? See our GraphicRiver logos section, which has its own license.

So I think codecanyon thumbnail/preview images are a kind of trademarks and you cannot use regular licenses of graphicriver items with them.

Sounds like “Use in an end product that’s sold”

The marketplace items are sold. But the preview image and preview content are free to access (no membership fee to access marketplace item preview). So it should come under “Use in a free end product ”.

Yes, but that thumbnails are used as a logo/trademark of your items, they represent your item. And the regular license states you are not allowed to use graphicriver items as logos/trademarks.

As i said in the fist post the subject is the codecanyon Inline Preview Image 590×300. The Inline Preview Image is a representation of an item not a logo/trademark.

“2. You are licensed to use the Item to create End Products for yourself or for one client. You can create more than one different End Product. For all uses (except websites), there is a total limit of 250,000 copies across all products. For websites there is no total limit on the number of copies made.”

“3. An End Product is a work created using skill and effort, and that incorporates the Item as well as other things, so that it is larger in scope and different in nature than the Item.”

^ Based on that.. You’ve got the skill and you put forth the effort.. so you are entitled to use it in your releases.

Avoiding Apple/Microsoft logos seems like a no-brainer. Was curious about some other common logos so I did some research. (The “verdicts” are my own personal interpretation).

WordPress: http://wordpressfoundation.org/trademark-policy/

All other WordPress-related businesses or projects can use the WordPress name and logo to refer to and explain their services, but they cannot use them as part of a product, project, service, domain, or company name and they cannot use them in any way that suggests an affiliation with or endorsement by the WordPress Foundation or the WordPress open source project.

Verdict for marketplace preview/thumbnail usage: YES

Title Usage Examples:

“My Awesome Product Built for WordPress”YES
“My WordPress Awesome Product”NO


YouTube: https://developers.google.com/youtube/branding

Powered By Logo

he powered by YouTube logos indicate that your application is entirely dependent on curating YouTube content or on its integration with YouTube. You should use a powered by YouTube logo if removing YouTube functionality from your application would render the application as nonfunctional or not useful.

Traditional Logo

The YouTube logos identify a specific application feature or component that uses YouTube content, uploads content to YouTube, or integrates with YouTube in some other way. You should use a YouTube logo if your application would still be useful if you removed its YouTube functionality.

Verdict for marketplace preview/thumbnail usage: YES (as long as you use the correct logo)

Title Usage Examples:

“My Awesome Product Built for YouTube”YES
“My YouTube Awesome Product”NO

 

Maybe some WordPress expects here can chime in :)

That’s nice to know too, but the initial question remains open:

can a graphicriver image (regular license) be used in a codecanyon item’s preview image (590×300)?

Yes. Absolutely. 100% without question.

But the question of whether the regular license could be used on multiple previews… Should probably just buy multiple regular licenses to play it safe.
