They mean that you have assets (in this case pictures) that have copyright issue. Either the pictures are not properly licensed or the content of the pictures contains trademarks, copyrighted material or unreleased models,…
I can see you have the brand “Hilfiger”. You can’t have that. You should review the images you used and make sure you can indeed use them.

Can u give me screenshot ?

#6

Do you have permission to use images and logos from Portfolio section?

On the other hand, I see you use MixItUp jquery plugin. You need to have permission to use it.

Is this your account too?


#7

How can i solve the mixitup issue
Do i have to buy their license ?
Or i just have to take permission ?
@ThemeSLR

Yes, as they write on their website you need to purchase license to have the rights to use it in commercial projects like the current one.

MixItUp will always be open-source and free to use for non-commercial use.

Only permission is not enough as they have option to sell license for commercial use.


#9

You have to have their recurrent license (monthly payments). They wouldn’t give permission for something they charge $30 a month for the lifetime of selling a file including it.


#10

So all the authers who use mixitup in themeforest bought license from them ?


#11

They should have done. I don;t know files using it but either way it is a legal requirement to have the re-seller license


If they don’t have permission and the right license then it is very stupid given the potential consequences if they get found out.

I won’t load sites that generate these issues

But it would seem from the thread that envato may also be aware of the required license - hence the problems you are having.
