We’ve said it before & will say it again….the extended licence is a farce. The terms are ambiguous, the support and policing non-existent. I remember a time when Envato staff actually answered questions about licencing on the forums and sorted out any infraction you informed them about via support. But then all of a sudden something changes and nobody wanted to comment about licencing or copyright stuff. Its pathetic.
VF your unfortunate experience and what i’ve written above is the exact reason why we opted out of all extended licence sales om CC, despite knowing that it would be closing the door on a lot of additional earnings. But if we hadnt dont this you can bet that our slider would be found in pluging on CC & themes on TF which were not authored by us. (we got many requests). Believe it or not, our source code still managed to find its way into several author’s files, so i can imaging what would happen if they couls have got an extended licence and effectively done what they wanted with it!
Extended licences at the very least should be not allowed to be used in the marketplaces (authors can make an agreement for these cases) and the cost of an extended licence should be much more than 5x like it is here on CC.
I noticed on the forums recently that Lance said Envato now has an in house legal team so things regarding licencing are at the top of the list. But i wouldn’t hold my breadth!
Just see this on envato_support twitter account:
@pippinspages Hi Pippin. Unfortunately no, an extended license doesn’t allow you to incorporate a CC item into another CC item.
Finally they say it!
So VF has to send Envato a DMCA takedown notice in order for them to do anything. This should never be allowed period. This is insane to me that Envato would even allow such shotty business practices within the marketplace and make the authors jump through loops all the while the offending author is still making money and potentially negatively effecting another authors reputation.
This basically means that unless the previous author he did this to notices or someone tells that author then this guy will continue to make money off his script as well. And Envato could not care less.
^ There is no use in barking at them. It is a matter of “service quality” than legal issue, I assume this is their quality of service to the authors we can expect. I will just send a DMCA and move on to preparing my new file. After all, we do earn money by investing time on design, coding, math etc and we can do better on this area instead of relying on their quality of service – it is upto them to improve themselves on internal policing.
This is fucking unbelievable.
How – the hell – something like this can even happen is beyond me ….
VF , bitfade All of you are thanks for your comment. As a i developer i also know about that how much pain you will got when you saw that some one make profit with your item but you didn’t. Truly speaking i am not interested to make jquery plugin to wordpress. I saw there is huge kind of item item in codecanyon which is developed by other author.
We contact many times with evanto before thinking to developed other author product after bying extended licence.
But evanto team do not directly told about that ” You are not allowed ” or “You are allowed” to do so.
I also fight like all of you with piracy evanto team also have record about our mail from last 8 months.
So if evanto market place support team told me about that you are not allowed to convert this to wordpress and need to remove we are well come to remove. But i think evanto need to inform us lots of month ago when i mailed them.
As we already invest lots of afford and money in it.
So i also need to know about there policy of extended licence.
You maybe should have contacted the author, especially if the support team didn’t give you any clear reply. Authors remain the owners of their files. Anyway, I hope that someone from the support team will stop by and help to clarify the situation.
