Can someome explain the use of the elements on these specific cases?

I havent found the answers on this topic anywhere, some questiong were empty and not answered.

I would like to use envato elements in a production of:

  • meditations/visualisations as a background music
  • videos for the online course (video footage, and music, to make the videos more entertaining)

I would register each item seperatley.
I do not completley understand if this is allowed?

Are you selling the courses or is it free?

Some would be free.
But I am also interested in selling them - that would be my main focus in the end, and that is why I am looking for assets I can use.

If the end-product is free, you can use it. For example, you can create the videos by using the items from Elements to create your own videos/courses. If you share those for free, there’s no legal issue.

If you sell it or charge the users to view those videos ( end-products ) you cannot use the items from Elements. If these items are available for sale on VideoHive, you need to purchase “Extended license” to sell it

I hope this is clear.

Thank you for this explanation!

I just got confused in the licenses :smiley:
I don’t like the marketing on elemets then :stuck_out_tongue:

  • Everything you need: video templates, stock videos, audio, graphics & more
  • Lifetime commercial license

It’s as advertise, commercial license doesn’t come with sale/re-sale feature.

Are you sure that’s right? I would check myself but I tried to subscribe to Elements a while back, got my account locked and I’ve never been bothered to sort it out and get it unlocked… so I can’t even access the license pages now! And the majority of the advice you provide is incorrect, so just wanted to double check. I know broadcast use isn’t allowed, but is there anything in the license about not being able to sell end products?

Clear guidelines on what’s not allowed

Some common-sense limitations do apply, as set out below:

  • You can’t re-sell, or re-distribute items;
  • You can’t use items in on-demand services;
  • You can’t use an Item for merchandising, which means an End Product created using that Item where the primary value of the product lies in the Item itself, including:

Such as?

A) Reselling items and re-distributing items is considerably different from re-selling and re-distributing end products. Reselling items isn’t allowed with any license. None of them… on Elements or the marketplaces. Reselling end products is allowed with certain licenses… the majority of licenses if you exclude audio.

B) In this very post you advised that he needed an extended license for VideoHive content… whereas he only mentioned ‘videos’ which don’t have extended licenses. Out of video footage, motion graphics and After Effects templates… only After Effects Templates have extended licenses. Templates which he never mentioned or alluded to.

And that’s just in this thread. I’ve seen so many comments, opinions and advice in there forums… some of them are misleading, some of them are slightly inaccurate, and some of them are just plain 100% entirely wrong. These things happen. Occasionally. I get it. But when it comes to consistency… your answers are more consistently wrong than any other answers that I have ever come across.

Please check the licenses and learn the difference between items and end products before you offer up any advice.

I have contacted to support to clarify it. I will update the details here but it shouldn’t be available to sell the items.

About “the other wrong/misleading” suggestion, feel free to correct me. I don’t mind if there’s a mistake
