Quick one folks

If an author is unable to support their items, is it possible to transfer them to another author so they can continue dev/support?

Seems a shame that 100s of buyers lose out otherwise

Thanks, Danny

With full confirmation from both authors, Envato might be able to help you do this, I’ve talked to them before about moving items and had a somewhat positive response, though have never actually done it myself.

That thread and the further linked thread show that this is indeed possible, as ScottWills readily points out, just look at the Fundify theme, it’s not with it’s original creators ;)

What incentive would the receiving author have with no chance of revenue for delivering updates to former buyers? Paid updates/support would fix this for the original author.
