Hi, Just wanted to ask, if it’s normal to purchase PSD template with regular license, make HTML or even WordPress template and then sell here on ThemeForest?

you cant resell the developed version of the psd on tf, unless you have made an agreement with the respective author.

Thanks for answer guys

“You should have permissions from PSD author.” – And simple email conversation is enough?

If you’re making agreements between authors be sure to have everything done up legally including a signed contract detailing all the terms and conditions of the agreement if you can. It will really come in handy in case there are any future disputes. Thanks!

Hello KingDog,

I am also one of those who vouches for contracts, but Support has replied differently to one author: \\

So, is the contract obligatory or not?

No, contract is not obligatory. But you must be aware that ThemeForest doesn’t care how you share your money. When user that uploaded the money withdrawals it, it’s not TF business anymore. Your partner could refuse to pay you, or pay you less than agreed – and that’s when you would need a contract. So although it is not neccessary, you don’t want to deal without it.

I don’t mean partnering or anything like that. Conditions is simple: 1. Purchase item, 2. Make an agreement with the author (or maybe first make an agreement and after this purchase item :) ) 3. Create template and upload, that’s it, (not going to share something on this stage with PSD author)

That’s possible too, but again – you would need the author’s permission AND you can’t do it by just purchasing one license (even if it’s extended license). It would cost you way more if you want to buy the RIGHTS of the design and not every author would actually agree to sell the rights.

Overall – you’re going into the wrong direction IMHO.
