Hello, I am android game developer, soon I will publish my game(s) – to make them better, I decided to buy some sounds from audio jungle, but I have small concern about which license should I use – Regular or Extended, yes I have been reading those licenses descriptions, but to be honest I am still not 100% sure, that`s why I prefer ask for clarification first. I have two planned possibilities to distribute my game(s)

a) My game will be published as a FREE application, therefore there are advertisements included, that might produce income for me as a author. Does it mean I need extended license?

b) My game will be published as a FREE application, therefore there are advertisements, and possibility to unlock some digital goods for additional payment (like unlocking new game levels or different game content for charge) Does it mean I need extended license?

I will be really grateful if someone may provide clarification, thanks in advance.

Cheers!

I just asked about proper license, not most expensive one, if there is no need to buy much more expensive one, I will not, cause I have different thing to pay for as well, so please do not post such a useless reply`s.

Thanks for reply, yes I did, but I am still not sure.

Extended license: “Single game for sale (e.g. for iPhone, Android etc.).”

But as mentioned my game is not for sale, its Free to download and use, there are advertisements therefore, plus I might include additional content to unlock in game (levels for example) for in app additional charge.

Thats why I am not sure.

Seems to me like you need the extended license,even though the application is free.

I can’t speak as an offical representant, but as far as I know you need to buy the extended license. Envato doesn’t distinguish between a project which produces income and a project which is for free. And as you said you plan to implement advertising which can produce income for you anyway. So it’s not “free” anymore – it’s a business model behind your concept.

Hi there Mathewek,

while as quickandeasy mentioned, a support ticket might be the best way to receive accurate information on the licensing matter, I still wish to point out, even without you having to take my “personal advice” under consideration, that whatever profits you make, be it based on advertisement or in-app sales of other bits and pieces, is still called “selling” your game, even if the install-package was free. You are making use of “content” sold here, to obtain a “profit” based on something you deliver freely.

You can only affirm that your project is free, if you intend to release it as open-source, as it is, for free, and not expect ANY future profits from it.

Hence, even if you “give it for free” (which technically speaking you are not, you’re at most giving a “trial/limited” version away for free, while the rest is supposed to be bought later) in my opinion, the only viable option would be the Extended license for the content you intend to purchase. That being said, please do get in touch with Envato Support, and one of our experts on licensing matters will give you irrefutable advice.

Kind regards, CB.
