Sale reversals doesn’t grant license to those buyers. They may get the file – but still it is isn’t legal so no worries. Our entire business is protected because of the thin awareness about license and legit usage habits. We are not protected by hiding download link.

Personally I would suggest Envato to expand license options for legit users instead of wasting staff resources on download based protections. Honestly our prices are too low to even spend resources for protection – this is one of the bad karma we have to face due to competitive pricing.

There needs to be some sort of way they can try before they buy, like some sort of “preview” that enables them to see the way the code is layed out and what’s possible with the theme, that way it’s their fault if they don’t like it as they should have done the research. Something like a “Live Preview”

When I buy something I can download license file IMMEDIATELY. How do you know that purchase code from this license will be cancelled if I reverse the purchase??

I didn’t tested so far but believe Envato revoking the purchase codes of sale reversals.

That’s the point! I’d like to believe that to. But I think we need to hear official statement about it.

Yes the purchase code is revoked. This is all detailed in this thread – http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/update-dealing-with-reversed-purchases-/96939

We’ll have more specific details about sales reversals coming out soon. Hopefully it will alleviate some of the confusion around them. Thanks!
