i think the surcharge is a bad idea and makes negative first impression. you should welcome new money coming in with no penalty for single one-off purchasers since that’s how most new customers will come in
Different versions of similar basic design elements, like news packages (all of which are somewhat similiar in design, and should be), or extruded logos, or lower thirds, or “epic title” logos, all of which I’ve bought a lot of, I think aren’t things that should be policed as much.
Particularly when the specific implementation details (like camera angles, particle/reflective mapping use) are quite unique.
What I’d be upset with is for example if I as an author had designed a very Unique, original concept (hard to define though), like say an outdoors animation with billboards or an island theme or a subway or sci-fi theme, that was then totally copied; That’s the type of thing I’d suggest focusing copyright infringement enforcement on, since it was a highly original design concept that was copied. But not 3d logo stuff, that’s a basic design element/style that’s open to interpretation, like sliders for templates, type of thing, so unique versions are welcome.
at least from this buyer’s perspective hope that makes sense
I’m looking to make a site similar to CNN’s video page:http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/offbeat/2013/10/13/newday-vo-snl-government-shutdown-nasa.cnn.html
it would be neat if anyone has a theme like that, with youtube embed at top and video carousel at bottom… just an idea
of all the stuff here extruded logos are the LEAST likely thing that should be copyrighted since there’s hundreds of logo-extuded type effects and projects here .. it’s fallen into the “General theme” of things regarding conceptual copyright. btw I’m very aggressive when it comes to protecting and defending copyright (a leader, I’ve sent hundreds of DMCAs/VERO takedowns)... I’m particularly sensitive to it myself.
But in the case of extruded logos, unless it’s a total copy of all angles/refractive surfaces/camera moves identical, I’d say it should be allowed to PEACEFULLY COEXIST.
here’s to the “Extruded Logo Lenience” movement on vh lol – good luck with it.
it’s not “geez its an extruded logo ban all similar”, should be “implementation of extruded logo concept” and as long as it’s reasonably creattive and different then let it be, I’d vote
i like seeing a lot of hotties in bikinis myself, but thats just me lol
your 3rd logo pack was great and I watched the preview yesterday, it was totally original and well done, like the first 2 (one of which I bought recently, it rocks)... not sure why anyone would say it’s copy, it’s original and I should know I’ve watched every preview since day 1 around here
I noticed one good update; that in “downloads” you can now sort by “recent updates”; that’s a big plus for those of us who’ve bought a lot, makes it much easier to find and download recent updated files, by marketplace. Good search upgrade
Congrats on marriage. posting in a forum. really? the whole first week on my honeymoon was in bed with champagne, strawberries and her.
but yeah I guess the envato forums are a close 2nd lol wtf. anyways best wishes.
great idea, also good to have one like this done for non-envato content for us content producers… I like that it’s a WP plugin, very smart, thanks!
right… and by the license it’s fine with envato, just wanted to get your guys’ take on it, eg would you mind if someone played another instrument or sang with your track, and put it on youtube?
it’s covered by the license, so that’s good… but i always want to ask and respect original authors’ values as well. maybe if i was original composer Id want to request as a courtesy the person has “original track composed by (yourname, + maybe link back here)?
