Hope John Doe doesn’t get the same idea as Ken did.

My cousin’s name is Lorem Zanner. She recently got engaged to this guy Chris Ipsum. She was shocked when she realized how many authors on Envato earn money by using her name without her express permission. Authors beware: you’re going to be in a lot of trouble when she gets married! :P

If this isn’t allowed to use the name, how come Apple can use ‘Ken burns effect’ in iMovie?

Isn’t this the same?

I would love for you to post the response you receive from Support just to learn about this :)

They probably contacted him before using his name, that’s my guess.
