Here are the answers to some common questions:

Do ThemeForest themes support the GPL?
Yes, all themes sold on ThemeForest must have the PHP code distributed under the GPL license BUT the design, images and CSS are not GPL. This gives you protection whilst also adhering to the spirit of sharing any WordPress development you do.
What % of each sale do I get?
Exclusive authors receive 50-70% of each sale depending on their previous sales volume. The more you sell the more you will earn!
Why wouldn’t I sell my own themes on my own site?
You most certainly could set up your own WordPress theme shop, but let’s face it - it’s a big hassle and getting traffic and marketing your work is a lot harder than it looks. That said, you should always think carefully and make the decision that best suits you. For our part we think you’ll find that selling with ThemeForest brings the benefits of selling without the drawbacks of trying to go it alone. Besides, where else will you find 500,000 potential buyers on tap?
