Asset Library - Envato Author Help Center
What is the Envato Market Partner Program? The Envato Market website has a collection of pictures, video and audio that can be used by writers for their articles. Author privileges are restricted to writers, and they can only be used under certain circumstances. Non-current asset libraries were only franchised for use in objects sold on the Envato market.
When you download or use the data, you agree to the following general business conditions: You' re an author of Envato Time. We use all our downloads solely for the purpose of reselling them on the Envato markets. Articles containing these properties may not be distributed outside Envato Markets, even if this author does not sell solely with us.
They will not use these data in any way other than for the purposes of manufacturing Envato market sold product. They will only sell or distribute these data via the Envato websites. If you are an author, you can browse the Assets library and retrieve your own attachments - just go to your Author Dashboard and go to Author Resources.
The Elite Envato
With your digitally created content, our communities are a truly memorable place and the reward programme is a sign of our esteem for your work. Awards available at any phase of your trip are based on our periodic US dollars restrictions and terms and may also be dependent on uptime.
As one of these terms, the award must be used within 12 month of achieving this mileage. So we can choose to modify the programme and how we distribute the awards and in the worse case even end the Elite programme. When there are changes to the programme at any point in history, these changes shall affect everyone.
After many e-mails and discussions, all writers approved our case. These are our official and publicly denied DMCA communications, which we have recently recieved from several Envato writers headed by WP Bakery. Well, I never thought we'd be in a licensing frenzy, but it did happen. I' m sorry to be posting such a long item, but I'm tired of it, like last months when I was supported by WPBakery with Envato.
I' m not going to try to tell you what was posted; here's the e-mail. We have learned that you use our WordPress plug-ins in your product without a valid licence, as none of the licence models provided by Envato Marketing allow such use. Please find attached DMCA communications and a Envato authorization note indicating that your activities do not comply with the terms of the Licence to prevent possible speculation.
Considering the fact that such licensing might be a misconception on your part, we are open to discussion of alternatives that will benefit everyone involved - please note that different plug-in designers may take different views on their use of the software. Thanks, the e-mail also contained appendices, the DMCA message and a note from Envato.
This is clearly stated and indicated as private and confidential. You refer to Expanded Licence Clause 9. The fun part, however, is that the Envato licence states that you are subject to the licence conditions upon purchase, which means that any later changes to this licence are not legally binding thereon.
You' ve had a change of licence. What type of licence is valid for the product I bought? It was the one that was on the purchase. View your licence certificates or ask us for further information. Since Envato never contact us to see which versions of their licenses we are tied to, they used the latest copy.
Now, the licence that ties us can be seen here and there is no such provision! I believe that Envato should use such a provision to keep a repository of licence audits open to the public as needed. It' s like they were selling us some acreage and we were building a plant over it and now they are asking us to give it back for the money.
We' ve reread the licence agreement and accordingly there is no issue with it. Use our Wordpress plug-ins "Go - Responsive Portfolio for WP" and "Go - Responsive Pricing & Compare Tables for WP" in your design that will be available for sale on Themeforest or another marketing place (including your website) if you acquire an expanded licence for this use.
This means one advanced licence per plug-in for each topic. Greetings: Well, we haven't (yet) bought a million pieces, but you seem to be turned 180º! There is no need for prior approval in writing, but you can view the corresponding FAQ item from our FAQ section. Reference to the licence clause:
Author of the article keeps title to the article, but licenses you to these conditions. The licence is between the author of the object and you. ENVATOPty Ltd is not a party both to this licence and to the licence granted to you. Well, let's see Envato submit a note to us in which they are not a political group... Please note, this is just the beginning.
Once the e-mail came in, I got directly in touch with Envato and said: Patrisha, member of the Envato support staff, replied: Hi Onur, thank you for calling Envato Help. The Kreatura Media FAQ clearly allows you to include your products in topics that are only available on ThemeForest, which is not your case.
We have not been notified that your BrainstormForce software is not hosted solely on ThemeForest. Here GranthWeb has missunderstood the conditions themselves, but since they are not a licensor, you must still adhere to the Envato licence conditions. Concerning Visual Composer - we explicitly declare that we allow the inclusion of Visual Composer in topics that are only available on ThemeForest - this does not mean that you should only make a Envato listing - you only have to resell Envato containing plug-ins.
Therefore, you have not adhered to the license conditions here either. You should also review Envato Market's mail with a clear statement from the Law Office that your Envato Media license does not apply to your Envato Media brand. Again, Envato's licences are granted in collaboration with the author, so you must adhere to the conditions set out in writing on their website - see detailed section of writing where it is not permitted to add plug-ins to topics and resell them in-store.
Thanks, this type is great, especially note its wording: the licences are granted by Envato in collaboration with writers, so you must comply with the writing requirements of their website. a: When you "sell" an object, you make your object available to the purchasers for use under certain circumstances; you do not actually really actually resell the object yourself.
Anything you sell involves a direct licence to the purchaser to use this article under the various kinds of licence conditions that we have established and that govern your articles. and the FAQ on author licensing: Is it possible to include specific requests in the licensing conditions for my files? The Envato market licences are valid for all articles to ensure consistent use.
This means, my dear fellow, that the conditions on your website are invalid and you are violating the legal arrangement you have with Envato.
Only an accusation to let you know that we need to clarify with our rights department before we can verify whether you have a grievance about our licence or not. I spoke to our rights department who cleared the licence conditions for Envato Marketing exclusives used in external inventory.
Unfortunately, all arrangements between the author of exclusives (in this case: WP Bakery) and the author of the warehouse item[you] are therefore restricted to the use of Envato Market. We do not allow the use of Envato Market exclusives within inventory products outside Envato Market. Should you wish to secure your company's adherence by marketing the Envato product on the Envato market, I would be pleased to provide you with a contact person in our growing sales force who can support you.
Raitis, I'm quite sure that you are a part of Envato ticket (Ticket ID: 267682) that we opened along with other plug-in writers. We received a reply from Envato about 12hrs ago and we have announced that our law firm will review your comments. So if you are so anxious to take measures, please do so because the Envato documents you have provided are no longer valid, what you have said and amended the non-compliance provision.
Envatos and our Law Department are both working on this issue. Here please note Christian's wording: "Your law firm.... who don't even know what they have written or don't even give a damn... even more badly, I don't think this firm exists because I can't believe that there can be a law firm that doesn't know its own conditions.
Should you wish to secure your company's adherence by marketing the Envato product on the Envato market, I would be pleased to provide you with a contact person in our growing sales force who can support you. After consulting our lawyer, he sent a long e-mail to Envato to get the part that made us laugh:
No restrictions are placed on the end product, either in the applicable laws or in the licensing conditions, which state that the end product is to be marketed solely on Envato markets (such as Themeforest). Therefore, as long as Ultimatum has the expanded licences for the relevant Articles, Ultimatum should not be subject to enforcement by any Party to this agreement that is to be solely resold on Envato Markets.
http://themeforest. net/licenses/faq#small-element-stock-a is a sub-title of http://themeforest. net/licenses/faq#faq-section-author and is intended for Envato writers who may wish to add a small amount of an item to their end products as inventory. However, the licence does explain how to resell an end products in Envato Markets, but does not restrict the resale to Envato Markets only.
Is it possible to buy an article that can be used as a small piece within a large scale product that I would like to resell as a warehouse or artwork? The use of articles in large warehouse implementations is not permitted as the standard line among licences, but there are certain exemptions. - In our opinion, this is against the licence, as the licence clearly grants authorisation to use an article in an end product.
The end products we sell are all warehouse products. Expanded license 3. b states: "For other kinds of items, an end product is something that includes the item and other things so that it has a greater volume and differs from the type of item," even the example given in the concept -the portable apart- is a major warehouse product selling in apple-stocks.
Any designs shipped on Themeforest that contain Visual Composer contain it as it is (redistribution of sources, shipping as inventory items). This allows the user to deactivate the topic while they continue using the plug-in or even extract the plug-in from the topic and place it on another website, which violates the terms of the licence.
However, Envato 2013's Topic Entry Policy required Themeforest Topic writers to store the plug-ins as storage articles (unchanged data that would be redistributed by Themeforest authors). An easy quest on Envato's own site shows that there are 791 articles that contain Visual Composer. Strangely enough, if all of them were in accordance with your topic submit rule, it seems that you made them break the licensing conditions because there is no such writing that justifies the operation.
We believe that the FAQ section of Envato in this section will give Themeforest writers the right to use Envato's expanded licence. However, in this case it cannot be used on ultimatum or a purchased item outside Envato Markets. Here again, the FAQ section states that the purchaser requires the author's prior consent in writing: if you acquire an expanded licence and obtain the author's prior consent in writing.
Author of the article keeps title to the article, but licenses you to these conditions. The licence is between the author of the object and you. ENVATOPty Ltd is not a party both to this licence and to the licence granted to you. - In other words, the licence itself is already the author's prior consent in writing of the article.
Envato's goal is to protect the author and his objects and we fully appreciate that. Note: Strangely enough, if all of them complied with your topic submittal policy, it seems that you made them break the licensing agreement because there is no such writing that justifies the promotion.
Following your answer below, I can certify that an item acquired on the Envato market under an expanded licence may be resold in an end package on the Envato market external to an end package provided that the approval of the initial item holder has been obtained. But instead of saying yes, there was a mistake and everything is fine, they show the clauses we mention in the FAQ and tried to tie us to it, so to speak, that we are violating the licence.
You may have seen in our answer that we have explained that one part is intended for Envato-Autoren. In heaven's name is Author Licensing FAQ. We' re not what Envato calls writers (Envato writers are the ones who are selling their product at Envato)! Envato is a multinational agency that can set our conditions of use, etc.?
Since there are concepts in the same section as : Will I have to reimburse for the use of my own articles within the current licensing conditions? We have been given permission by Envato to use our products for free! Is it possible to include specific requests in the licensing conditions for my files? The Envato market licences are valid for all articles to ensure consistent use.
Okay Envato please communicate this to Microsoft, Google, Apple, Adobe, etc. so that they can comply with your conditions which they create in the space! Joke aside, the heading of the section is very clear and only ties writers who sell their works on the Envato brand. Envato can't see it, though. Hello Onur, we have seen your lawyer's answer, but since the Licence FAQ's are part of the Enhanced Licence, you are subject to the conditions contained in the FAQ.
That is made clear in the first sales of the Extended License: Extended Licence gives you, the Buyer, an on-going, non-exclusive, world-wide licence to use the chosen Digitial Work (Item). See the remainder of this manual for the terms and conditions that govern your use of the article and the frequently asked questions (FAQs) (which are part of this manual).
According to the following FAQs, in order for the licence to be accepted, in additional to the acquisition of an expanded licence, it must be approved in writing by the author of the assets before the article can be incorporated into a major article to be sold: Sincerely, Christian, if you had been reading the e-mail from the beginning and better understand your own conditions, you would know that you cannot commit anyone outside Envato to Envato's own conditions.
Sorry, but to be a neutrality means to be neutrality and not to be a pessimist for one of the political groups. You can see in all this that Envato Ultimatum did not blame us for violating the expanded licence, but forced us with its own in-house regulations for its market place auteurs.
I' m sorry people, we are not one of your writers and never will be, because we appreciate our words to our customers who pay. So if we were the ones who read words incorrectly, what about WPBakery? Envato upgraded its licences on 22 January 2013 and it is no longer possible to use articles from Envato stores in their own articles for purchase on Envato stores without a twinning contract between two author.
Between me (Michael M) and you (Envato author). The Envato has consented that there is no such restriction on products available on Themeforest or any other Envato market. Following your answer below, I can certify that an item acquired on the Envato market under an expanded licence may be resold in an end package on the Envato market external to an end package provided that the approval of the initial item holder has been obtained.
Envato's attorney is against this, as the rules mentioned by Envato can be found under Author Licensing FAQ. We' re awaiting our lawyer's formal response to Envato on this issue. However, since WP Bakery is the only one in this case without prior consent in writing - we have sent other e-mails - we would like to know how we can go about it and obtain your consent to complete the case more quickly.
Hi Onur, also from Envato's side we were notified about this and they also said that it is up to us to make a decision - if and under what circumstances we are willing to include Visual Composer in end based product that will be marketed outside Envato. The guidelines for such cases were clear from the very first days and we have always explained that we only allow the integration of Visual Composer in articles that are only available on Envato.
However, in view of the fact that this is not an everyday case with a long story and many participants, we are considering agreeing under specific circumstances, which I think will give you an advantage over your competition. Considering that Visual Composer is certainly one of the core elements of your products, and I am sure that you will accept this, we are considering to offer the following collaboration partners the following working methods - of course within the framework of a mutual letter of agreement:
Since your products is one of the most important points of our products. Your Raitis products are a beautiful free tools for our customers and not an important point! The line too: Our guidelines for such cases were clear from the very first days and we have always explained that we only allow the integration of Visual Composer in articles purchased on Envato.
Extended Licence gives you, the Buyer, an on-going, non-exclusive, world-wide licence to use the chosen Digitial Work (Item). See the remainder of this manual for the terms and conditions that govern your use of the article and the frequently asked questions (FAQs) (which are part of this manual).
They are entitled to use the Article to make a unique endroduct for themselves or for a customer (a "single application"), and the end Produce may be resold. The ultimatum is a final 3 for sale article. A final end result is one of the following things, both of which require an exercise of ability and toil.
For an article that is a reference, the end result is a custom implement of the article. The article, for example, is a copy for a magazin and the end result is the final magazin. b ) For other kinds of items, an end result is something that includes the object and other things so that it is wider in size and different from the object.
If you can build the end result for a customer, you will transfer this licence to your customer. Any number of photocopies of the individual end products can be resold and made. The Ultimatum is a digit end commodity oversubscribed 6. The element can be changed or manipulated.
It is possible to mix the items with other plants to make a derived plant. Any resulting works are governed by the conditions of this licence. They can do these things as long as the end result that you then build is one that is allowed under Term 3. Example: You can licence a vektor, modify it and insert your own items to make an illustrated page that will be used as a jacket.
It is a one-time licence and not a multi-use licence, which means that you cannot use the element to make more than one end product. It is not possible to redistribute the article as a warehouse, in a mold or reference, or with sources. Do not do this with one object alone or in a package with other objects, even if you change the object.
The object cannot be passed on or made available as it is or with surface changes. Envato's Ultimatum plug-ins have been engineered and altered to ensure that they work well with Ultimatum itself and with each other. It is not possible to licence a number of sound samples and share them as a bundle on a CD.
As an Envato author, you can use other elements in the article previews without a licence under certain terms. Please see the authoring FAQ. While you can change the element and thus remove individual parts before you create your individual end product, you cannot individually remove and use an individual part of an element.
We do not have separate elements of elements that are used individually, because each element we use absolutely needs an Ultimatum to be actively installed. Licence a play-starterkit. Do not allow an end consumer of the end product to separate the article from the end product and use the article separate from the end product.
All Envato Market's articles are subject to modification and manipulation in order to function within Ultimatum only. End users cannot use the element as a standalone element without an Ultimatum install. It is not possible to use an element in a logotype, trade name, or trade name. Please see our GraphicRiver section which has its own licence.
Some elements may have a different location from the author, and the components may have different licensing conditions, such as someone else's licence or an Open SOURCE or CSL. Otherwise, the author identifies the item on the item's descriptive page or in the item's downloadable file.
Another licence is valid for this part instead of this licence. For the remainder of the object, this licence is valid. Certain elements are partly covered by a GNU General Public Licence (GPL) or other open code licence, even if the element was completely written by the author. A " splitting licence " is valid for these articles.
That is, the OpenSource License is valid to the full scope specified by the OpenSource Licence Agreement and the type of Object, and this Licence is valid for the remainder of the Object. If a separate licencing exists, this will be noted in the element downloaded file. They may use the object only for legitimate ends.
Even if an object contains an illustration of a human being, even if the object is approved, you may not use it in a way that would create a false identities, imply a personally endorsed nature of a products by the human being, or in a way that is libelous, indecent or degrading, or in conjunction with delicate subject matter.
Your use of Envato markets is subject to this licence in connection with the terms and conditions of membership. In the event of any discrepancy between this Licence and the Membership Terms, this Licence shall be valid to the full degree necessary to remedy the discrepancy. You may terminate this licence if you violate it. In this case, you must stop making photocopies of the end product or redistributing it until you have removed the element from it.
Author of the article keeps title to the article, but licenses you to these conditions. The licence is between the author of the object and you. ENVATOPty Ltd is not a party both to this licence and to the licence granted to you. It is clearly stated in the licence that the author of the article purchased under the expanded licence accepts the conditions.
Furthermore, this provision clearly states that the licence contract exists between the author of the article and the purchaser if Envato is not a contracting partner of the licence or the licensor. Therefore, no notifications or measures can be sent or taken by Envato. However, we believe that Envato would act as a third parties that can resolve the licence questions.
Since there are no licence violations, we reject their DMCA messages officially. What does privacy and confidentiality mean to you? Are you sure you have a law firm that is fully cognizant of your conditions and licenses? Whilst you are not involved in the case (according to the licence terms), why do you protect the plaintiff (WP Bakery) blindfolded and blatant?
What do you want to do to fix the problem with topical issues that contain codecanyon entries on a "as is" base (unchanged stick plugins) that violate your licence? When you really have a share licence, where is it and what are the conditions? Do you realize that there is a outside realm where humans are living and Envato is not Envato, but the realm?
WP Bakery, there are about 200 topics that are for sale outside Envato, including VC. How will you know if this is an illegal contract that violates the conditions of your contract with Envato? By the time we purchased this licence and began using this licence, WPBakery had 7000 units on sale, now they are fly in number.
Does WPBakery not think that topics inclusive of their products have made them liked where we are one of them? If WPBakery thought we were breaking the licence, why did they keep waiting so long? WPBakery knew for 2 years that we had VC in our subject and until a few months ago WPBakery never said anything about licenses.
He didn't say anything about licenses or anything until a whole month ago, now he's a big fan! No! and why are you changing the conditions for attacking them? So when you contact other writers (we know you did it to support your point), what did you pledge to them?
All the writers in Envato are evil? Should these writers not be satisfied with the licensing conditions, they should persuade Envato to modify the conditions for their prospective customers. Alternatively, they should delete the advanced licensing options from their elements, as UberMenu did. Not even do I know if this will be a trial on which the judge will rely because the licence does not allocate a regular tribunal for the discrepancies.
The aforementioned judicial name is the only one included in the Envato provisions that exist between Envato and its members. Since Envato is not involved in the matter, there is no jurisdiction allocated to the case by law.
