I would like to see a checklist of items reviewers will check with details.
For example, I had an item soft rejected because I used a free font from a free font site once allowed by GR but no longer allowed today. We need a list of free font sites (or specific font licenses) supported by GR.
Another example, a guy had an image rejected for being too sexy. We need specifics on what that means. (This idea is currently under review by staff. I mention it here, just because it is a good example of the level of detail missing in the Terms and Conditions and various author instruction docs.)

Thank you for your feedback, the issue you are discussing relates to our review system and I will make sure your comments are passed on to the right people.
if you have any questions relating to the Marketplace Terms and Conditions changes (discussed in this thread) please feel free to post below.
Thanks for useful info!
We have a similar concern, specially for Themeforest.
You authorise Envato to submit a DMCA notice to others on your behalf regarding unauthorised use or copies of your Products made elsewhere (without obligation and at Envato’s sole discretion).
I just want to know if this is only for stolen works on envato’s marketplaces, when one author upload an item from other author, or envato will send dmca notice to other sites (file hosting and warez sites) where people are sharing our items for free (or for sale)?
And why “without obligation and at Envato’s sole discretion”? If envato don’t want to do that, will be fair to inform author if they don’t want to send dmca notice.
Authors can send dmca notices that’s true, and it works sometimes, but what if my item is in pack of 20 items? And what if warez sites are sharing whole bundle in one file? I’m afraid that in that case only envato can do something and to protect authors.
Sorry if I’m wrong. Just thinking out loud.
Thanks for the info…
good too know, thanks
