As mentioned by other authors, the analytics clearly show the increase of exposure to our products while on the home page, I’m aware that some buyers don’t follow this path but again the analytics clearly show that the majority do.
Got to agree that something has to be done here – worked on my Holiday email and within hours I’m halfway down the second full page of new items.
Wow! Thanks so much for your comments I’m so happy everyone enjoyed reading the interview it was lots of fun to do!
Scott thanks so much for your comment. Yes, I’ve pretty much been here from the beginning of the email template category and introduced a few things overtime there – as for getting Barb for a single interview to find out what it’s like to work with me, I think we will find that whenever and if ever that happened she would be far too busy
Again, a big thanks to everyone for taking the time to read and comment – Happy Holidays!
Thanks to Calin for the amazing opportunity to do the interview – I hope everyone enjoys reading it
Thanks again to everyone at Envato!
Nope it’s completely broken and not fixed…. I have no idea why, been like this for a while.
@Jonathan “what if I create an iPhone (for example) image myself, graphically, like they do and sell on Graphic River, and simply give it away with my landing page / theme etc – as it’s mine, and my interpretation of a device that would surely get me out of the copyright loop here as long as the image isn’t an exact replica of say an iPhone.” Isn’t that how Samsung got sued lol ?
but basically I think that’s my point, if you can create pixel perfect replicas of say an iPhone and sell it on Graphic River for single use, why can’t we use them – isn’t that the purpose. If it’s not allowed then surely they are not allowed to be sold on Graphic River – so confused right now
When purchasing items from our Marketplaces, they are subject to the licence terms which state that you can not buy an item and then use it in another template. Aside from the licence issues, using real-world products in your item download on GraphicRiver are only allowed in the product mock-up category as per Exception #4 in the article and use in your item previews is under Exception #5 i.e. used to show compatibility or to demonstrate how your item works.
Hey Scott – thanks for the reply I look forward to the follow-up answer for the rest of my questions when you get clarification.
Your answer has confused me somehow or maybe I wasn’t clear on my original question – with regard to using assets purchased on GraphicRiver for my live preview display – I do not include the items in the download, but rather use them for their intended purpose which is I bought a license, used the image in my 1 and only live preview – file not distributed. Therefore isn’t that the regular license terms and something we are allowed to do – your answer made me think I now cannot do this – if that’s the case what will people use all those mockups for
Don’t get me wrong, I’m fully behind all these clarifications and proper use of properly licensed images – so here’s another for you, what if I create an iPhone (for example) image myself, graphically, like they do and sell on Graphic River, and simply give it away with my landing page / theme etc – as it’s mine, and my interpretation of a device that would surely get me out of the copyright loop here as long as the image isn’t an exact replica of say an iPhone.
Basically, I just want to be able to create specific landing pages for display and sale of applications and services that will show an image of the intended device for the application / service to work on – which as previously mentioned is allowed under Apple’s own terms and conditions (with specific rules). I just want a clear definition of how I can do this legally – that’s either Apples images, my own representations, or a graphic river item bought and displayed only in my live preview.
You are the copyright holder and Envato do not have any legal power when it comes to warez sites. You have to send the DMCA etc – Envato would probably need rock solid proof to ban a user.
I see at least 4 of the images in the screen shot of images asked to be removed still on your live demo – in the macbook air framed slider and in recent work also – you should remove those images I believe – also you should remove the words macbook air as you don’t have rights to use that as it’s a registered trademark of Apple.
I feel your pain, I really do, and I sincerely hope it’s a huge seller for you both, you’ve done all you can on your end of things to make sure it is… I just feel the current system doesn’t help anyone, and by anyone I’m including buyers and Envato in that statement and this is a shame.
