So I can tell the other author to purchase a random amount of extended licences where I think its fair for me that he can sell my plugin in his wp theme? If the author does not accept that, can I tell envato that he should contact the author and tell him to remove my plugin from his source files?

I think you can ask for the Item removal or Item update without your plugin being in the code.

depends when he added it also since the license change will only apply to files uploaded since the change was made right?

that’s the case with most items that have a license. As long as you have a copy with the old license it still stands, you just can’t update it etc… which may be tricky to police with files here etc…

This was in fact stated when the new rules were released, so for all these situations, no doubt timing will be important.

From everything I’ve read, there’s no verbiage that discusses monetary compensation. As I pointed out earlier, this statement in the license:

To keep things simple, the first author can permit the second author to do this under the terms of the extended license.

... is somewhat incomplete as it doesn’t discuss if an actual extended license purchase is required.

So under the present documentation, I really don’t see anything stopping you from requesting that the author purchase multiple extended licenses.
