I’m currently developing a script to upload on CodeCanyon and I’m planning to use a free pre-made template for it. The template has a footer link saying “Designed by XXX” with a backlink and in their license it says that I’m not allowed to resell, redistribute, license, or sub-license any of the files found unless I take a permission from them.
I have contacted them and asked for a permission to use their template as a default template of the script (it’s going to support multi-template) and their answer was positive, but they required me to add in license that they have to purchase a “copyright removal” through their service otherwise the footer backlink should not be removed.
Now my question is, will this be an issue to get the script approved for CodeCanyon ? Also I wonder if CodeCanyon would accept a screenshot of the permission e-mail from the site I have downloaded the theme ?
Thanks in advance.
