You can’t buy your theme and sell elsewhere?
You can’t due to your exclusivity with Envato, but the recipient of your product can resell it else where ( outside this marketplace). The difference is they are still selling a half baked solution because being the original author, you have the advantage of providing support in a marketplace where updates are free. This is something the buyer gets when buying from you and generally the route any serious buyer takes.
Everybody else trying to sell your GPL’d product outside this marketplace is simply exposing your product to more people who were less likely to buy anyway but what are they going to do when they need support ? Some of these people will eventually buy from you directly resulting in sales you would not of had otherwise.
In practice, it’s hard to tell how well this works, though many have been successful staying in business while still being GPL.
Decided to give The Wire another chance. Man am I glad I did. Just finished the 4th season, and it’s easily one of the top 5 shows I’ve ever seen.
Loved The Wire! Indeed one of the best shows, mcnulty is always so restless and the whole setting looks and feels so realistic and crude
Agreeing with the last few comments that the rating system is useless, specifically for codecanyon and thereforest. I hope to someday see it being replaced with an issue tracker. The ratings say very little and leave much room for abuse.
With an issue tracker, people can log problems. This is useful to the author, and useful to future buyers so that they can go through open issues and evaluate the item. This also makes perfect sense with updates being free on all items sold.
Considering that a buyer has a valid reason to rate 1 star, this has no indication as to what the problem is and how to improve the item. This type of punitive system is damaging on items where buyers are already welcome to solicit fixes and get them for free on successive updates.
It would be nice to see a fair system that acknowledges we are fixing problems as they come up.
