I’ve seen other threads somewhat regarding this, but I still don’t have the answer I’m looking for.

I notice that a Regular License states:

(a) Your use of the Work is limited to a single application.

And the Extended License states:

(a) Your use of the Work is limited to a single application.

So how is the Extended License any better?

Maybe I’m not understanding what (a) means. I figure it means you can only use a Theme on one domain. I would like to be able to use a Theme on multiple domains, but I’m not sure which license allows that type of use.

I basically want to buy a Theme and use it on different Client websites. I’m not “selling” the theme to my Client, I’m just using it for their website. Can I do this with multiple Clients on a Regular License? Thanks!

- Additionally -

I’d also like to mention that an Extended License is ridiculously expensive! Compared to other premium theme shops that offer a personal or developer license that’s only a small amount more.

The word License as it appears on a Theme’s page is spelled wrong (Licence) and it is spelled correctly on the License description page.

So, for client websites you will have to buy one Regular License per client.

Developer licenses in other theme shops are multiple use licenses, I believe. The Extended License on TF allows you to build a web service using a theme.

Envato marketplaces used to offer a multiple use license too (something like 5x use for 3x price, or 10x use for 3x price, can’t remember now), I don’t know why it is no longer here.

The 50x for Extended License may seem an overkill in most cases, but it’s fair when you consider building a service like WordPress.com or using TF admin template in your CMS for sale.

Nope.

1 license per domain

Extended license would allow you to use the theme on multiple domains.

Theme’s page is spelled wrong (Licence) and it is spelled correctly on the License description page.
Licence is the British spelling. http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/licence?q=licence

Envato is an Australian company but they employee people from all over.

AFAIK that’s wrong. For use on multiple domains you need to purchase one regular license per client/installation/use, as pogoking stated correctly.

Actually not. Extended License is a single application too, it means that it can be used for a single project or work. Developing a website for two clients means two separate projects.

Item bought under EL can be incorporated into a single, larger work, but unlike SL, you can, for example, include a CodeCanyon plugin into your TF theme for sale. Or develop a web service like wordpress.com using a TF theme.

It all comes down how you redistribute the theme and what can be called “work”.

Thanks everyone! That totally clears it up for me.

Quick question now, if I have to buy a regular license for each new client I have, is there an easier way to buy the license where I don’t have to download the theme all over again each time I buy it? I guess that’s not a big deal though if I have to.

Also, thanks for cluing me in about the spelling of License, lol. Although it’s still inconsistently spelled. “Licence” on a theme’s individual page, and “License” on the license details page.

Thanks again!
