Thanks! I wonder why it has taken me so long to submit an item…
My first Codecanyon item was just approved about 30 minutes ago, and I got my first sale already! Wow, what a rush!!
I assume that if they are skilled enough to manage servers they can write a script using the API? Why would you put it in WordPress, and not a standalone script?
I think all docs should have a minimum skill level disclaimer set, say 3 out of 10 for CSS and HTML : “This item is well documented, and requires some basic knowledge of CSS and HTML to be usefull. If you are not very confident in either CSS or HTML, please have a look at the following links, which have quick and easy HTML & CSS tutorials for beginners …”
From the Envato knowledgebase:
Note: Do not assume that the buyer of your item has any significant level of coding knowledge. When preparing your documentation, treat the buyer like a beginner.http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/352/85/general-file-preparation-guidelines
The only exception here is envato does have the power to remove the “well-documented” tag. But that doesn’t mean they can enforce what is sold with the product. Just like bob cant tell panasonic what to include with the tv.
That is his main gripe…if Envato doesn’t actually review the documentation, they they shouldn’t label it “well-documented” because it gives the wrong impression. Now that I think about it, there is only a “well-documented” tag, and not a corresponding “poorly-documented” tag.
srikanth89premium saidIf it is in the JS, people can remove it, and besides, that is a privacy violation.
laranz saidThank you. but i have thought of implementing the script which is embeds in js file. which tells the website url? so that we will easily recognize the item used site?
Some kb articles: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/List/Index/60/copyright--legal/ But there is no way to stop it, even MS, Adobe also try this
There is no way to stop it. Just accept it as a fact of life move on.
Not sure where you live, but in the United States, you don’t have to register anywhere, just report the income on your tax return. If it is over a certain amount, and it is a steady amount, you should estimate for the year and divide it into quarterly payments. You will also need to pay a self-employment tax of about 15%.
