Licence issue for PHP web app

Hello community,
Hope you all are well. I am new to envato marketplace. I want to sell apps on Codecanyon. I have got some questions, if you would answer them, it would be a great help.

  1. If I use a copyrighted HTML template, is it required to include the license file with the app package when submitting it? Or is there anything I need to do to verify I am permitted to use the template? If I use a free template, should I worry about licensing? I have never been with the licensing issue before.
  2. Where should I put HTML template license in the project folder if I need to include it?
  3. For admin panel, is it good to use the AdminLTE template?

Thank you for your time.

Almost certainly you can’t do it with a copyrighted one, and even with a free one you need to be sure you can commercially use it

If it’s a file from themeforest then you need express permission from the author

What if I use a template outside of themeforest?

Wherever it’s from you need a commercial usage liceinse which is fairly rare or expensive

The ones which are entirely free to use tend not to be up to par for approval here

Got it. Another question, where should I include the license file when submitting the app in Codecanyon? I mean should it in be the root folder?

Again depends on the source

  • from envato needs the original author to submit a ticket and share the ID

  • outside envato put it in the download folder


Thank you very much.
