Themes come with plugins. Plugins which they bought a extended license for. But now suddenly plugin developers start limiting abilities of their plugins because they believe it should only work on a activated plugin. But you can not activate these extended license the theme plugins have been bought with.
We now see ourselves faced with limitations and abilities that dont work and are suddenly required to buy a single user license. It is like a app in the app store. You get it for free and if you want more you need to pay again.
What is the use of a extended license. And why is this allowed by envato? It is tying sales. It feels like a scam !
We see this now in the visual composer and in the slider revolution. But when the theme developers bought their license there was no limitation at all. As in the VC one could just work with templates and now suddenly they cant anymore.
I can understand that they want to gain as much income but then dont sell the extended license. Why is this allowd by envato? What is the use of a extended product if all the nice stuff is not working? What did the theme developers buy in the first place when they originally bought the extended license and why can it now suddenly be limited?
Looking forward to your reply on this
