Whenever someone (freelancer, studio) buys a theme or template and then sells it to a client of theirs, that would require them to purchase the extended license? Is that right?

Oh. I thought the extended was there for when buyers want to resell or in some other way make money off of it?

Nope, regular licence will do in such situations.

Ok. So the extended licence is when you make something that’s sold to the masses I take it? So instead of buying 50 or more regular licenses, they’ll just pick up the extended one?

Nope. Extended Licence != Multiple Use Licence.

You would use EL when, for example, developing a custom CMS that would be redistributed to unlimited number of people and you want to use an admin skin from TF for your CMS’ backend. This way you make the admin skin a component in larger project, that will be redistributed for free or for money.

This is my understanding of the EL text.

To give you an example with WordPress theme – you build a service like wordpress.com, where users create their account, setup their blog and then can choose a theme for their blog. One of these themes comes from TF, and you need an EL for it. See, there’s the difference – you are not redistributing the theme code – you are allowing others to use the theme within your service.
