is standard license, and the cheapest version btw as you do not need a high resolution photo or big pixel dimension for an ebook.

I’ve taken a look at another site, and their license states it is ok for a standard license up to 250,000 copies being sold, then an extended license will be required.

To be honest, if I sold 250,000 copies, I wouldn’t mind paying the extended fee :)

so what’s the book about?

I also want to publish a book on kindle with the new amazon self-publishing service. It will be called the “Unofficial story of envato marketplaces”. Don’t know if someone will buy it.

‘eh…

Do you guys even read this stuff before posting…

Photo Regular License (No Resale)

I think the last part is a pretty good hint as to what you can do with the image. You can’t use it for anything you are planning on selling multiple copies of.

It’s one time, single use license. If you use it on something that is being distributed for free it has a 250,000 copies limit.

Photo Extended License (Commercial)

If you are going to use the image on something you intend to sell multiple copies of you need to extended license. End of story.

If the ebook is being sold you need the commercial license.

I’ve taken a look at another site, and their license states it is ok for a standard license up to 250,000 copies being sold, then an extended license will be required.
I’ll bet you’ve misinterpreted the license and this is not the case. Please post a link to that TOS ?

Why do people always call it “Commercial”, when the word is “Extended Licence”?

Anyway, are you sure? Using it as a bookcover, isn’t the same as using it on a t-shirt for instance. On a t-shirt, you are buying the t-shirt for what’s on it, aka the item you bought. But on a book, you aren’t buying the cover so to speak, you are buying the contents. It’s a bit like a website, you wouldn’t get an extended licence for a website just because more than one person is visiting it.

For a book cover, I would have honestly thought the regular licence would be fine. Now obviously I could be wrong, but just stating my thoughts here :)

The fact that it’s electronic could have something to do with it, but since it’s (I presume) not in a format where you’d be able to cut out the picture itself and reuse it somewhere else, I don’t see the relevance.

A cover I would consider more in the “advertising” end of uses (which is a regular licence), than the “resale” use (which is the extended licence).
No Zeplix; If you were selling a theme you couldn’t include the image because whether or not the intention is to sell the theme you’re still giving the user the image.

Missed you had replied to me there, just saw now, my bad! Anyway, I said website, not theme :P As in… you know… make a website for a client?

no you are wrong.

I posted the link to license in a previous post.

I see that every time someone ask for what license they need to use, then automatically the answer is: “the extended license”.

there is a difference between sale and resale.

Sale means the product is sold to one buyer who is the final user of that product.

In this case the book is sold to a reader and this one can not resale that book. Is the final buyer. So regular license is applying but only if the books copies sold are under 250.000 copies.

Resale means you sale your product to someone who can then resale it to someone else. Your product may be sold by the buyer to someone else, but with a few restriction. For example who purchase the product from your buyer can not resale it, but it needs to be the final user. It can sale it to whatever person he likes, but that buyer must be the final user.

edit:

So:

REGULAR LICENSE

first seller (YOU – use a stock photo) > final buyer STOP (if under 2500.000 copies)

EXTENDED LICENSE

first seller (YOU – use a stock photo) > first buyer -> final buyer (THIRD) STOP

hope is clear.

You are wrong.
Unless you have our prior written consent, you must not directly or indirectly license, sub-license, sell or resell or provide for free the Work or offer to do any of these things. All of these things are referred to as Resale.
Let’s see.

Line one clearly states that if you are using the photo in a product you intent to sell, that is considered resale. It’s pretty clear what they mean by resale.

You selling a product using a PhotoDune photo = resale.

You may use the Work alone or you may incorporate the Work into another work you are creating for your own purposes or for your client who has asked you to create it, but it cannot be created for Resale by you or your client.
Line 2. You can use the photo for personal use or for work you have been hired to do by a client but that product cannot be resold. It’s a single use license.
If the Work is used or incorporated in a work, you may not reproduce any image more than 250,000 times in sum total (provided the copies are not for Resale).
Providing you are using the image for a free product, that product is limited to 250,00 copies. Once again, it is stated that this does not apply to products you intent to sell.

If all of that still doesn’t make any sense,

Regular License = You Buy Product = STOP

If you want to sell a product using a PhotoDune photo you need an extended license.

The PhotoDune license is the same as the licenses for any other Envato products. If I want to purchase that product and include it in my own product to resell, I need to buy an extended license.

I can’t buy a theme from themeforest or javascript from codecanyon and resell those products myself unless I purchase an extended license. PhotoDune photos are no different.

Where is a PhotoDune rep to clear this up?
