Note: There is already an ongoing thread for authors who use marketplace items within their items (ex: CC plugin in a TF theme) here. This thread is for everything else.

As you may have already seen, we’ve made some pretty big changes to the marketplace licenses. Here’s Collis’s full announcement, with an explanation of everything that’s changed.

We’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions for further improvement, so please let us know what you think! We’ll be following this thread closely to make sure your voices are heard. :)

Single end product, distributed free by you or one client

In my honest opinion “free” word is a bit misleading at first sight.

Thanks, Vasterad. We’re looking into that right now. Keep in mind that it’s impossible to reduce the whole license down to 10 words and have it make sense for every file. No matter what goes there, people need to understand that there’s a license, not just a blurb.

I think a simple reply for authors more clean. If authors now purchase any CC wp plugin in their themes with “Extended License” like slider , it’s still ok now ? :)

I have to say that this discussion about licenses revealed to me the high cost of using a UI kit from GraphicRiver. This is one of multiple sources I check for UI kits, and the cost of using a UI kit for a paid app is more than enough to pay for annual memberships in those sites. The cost of a regular license here (around $5-$8) is the same as purchasing an individual UI template in other sites, but those sites have multi-use royalty free commercial licenses.

Is there a way you can allow your authors to compete in price against other sites? For instance, the forced multiplier makes commercial use prices way too high (say $5 in other sites vs. $75 here).

The one site I know that sells UI kits at that price range (a) provide unlimited use, in any number of apps, and (b) provide full source code for a fully running app, not just a PSD that you slice and dice yourself.

Can you make this point clear for me:

I can buy a regular license wrap a theme around it and give it away for free?

Use in a free end product (more than one end user allowed) (sale to one client allowed)

As far as I understood, in that case your end product is your online website, which (of course) you can let people access for free. What you can’t do, for instance, is making the source files available for download.

that means purchasers of extended licence can use your code or script into his commercial product and sell unlimited copies to that end product . he can not resell your code or script standalone . I think its same as previous extended licence . but this one has a clear and simple language

But this is also possible with regular license!?
