These questions and answers will help you understand the legal issues related to the licensing of TastyIgniter marketplace items.
No. However, if your extension is of general use then it is often a good idea to contribute it back to the community anyway.
You can get feedback, bug reports, and new feature patches from others who find it useful.
The software itself is completely free, under the terms of MIT License. However, the name TastyIgniter is a registered trademark "to create a level playing field for everyone interested in using the TastyIgniter trademark."
The Item is what you purchase from the TastyIgniter marketplace. The Website is what you build with that item. For example, the Item is a cart extension, and the Website is the finalized webpage with an online ordering service. The Item is an orange theme; the Website is the webpage using the theme's layout, look, and feel.
On the detail page for any given item, you'll find a link to the relevant license.
Buy a theme, add content, logos and other images and use it as your website.
Buy, configure, implement, and use the extension on your website (but not as a new extension for sale).
Create a site (carté) with multiple extensions, create a custom theme, and use it for one website.
Yes. You can customize our items to fit the needs of your website. For example, you might customise a theme product's colours, text, and layout for a single client.
The term "non-exclusive" refers to the fact that you are not the only one who has access to the item.

Regular & Extended Licenses
In simple terms, with a Regular License, you're only allowed to use the item you've purchased on one website. The Extended License, on the other hand, allows you (as an individual or organisation) to use the item on an unlimited number of websites.
Under no circumstances does either license allows you to sell the item. For example, on the TastyIgniter marketplace or any other marketplace, as a theme or extension.
If you're a freelancer, you are allowed to sell the item as part of your service to your clients. For example, you can use either license to create a website for a client and charge them for your services.
No. Regardless of which licence you buy, you cannot licence items and then make them available to anyone "as-is". For example, you can't buy a theme and distribute it as a theme, source files and all.
If the item is sold as part of another item, you must buy a Regular License for each end user. An Extended License cannot be used to resell items to end users.
No, simply using the item for commercial purposes does not necessitate the purchase of an Extended License. For a single website, a Standard License would suffice. The Extended License is a bulk licence that allows you to use the same item on several websites at the same time.
Licenses cannot be transferred to other individuals or organisations.
No. At this time we don't have a multi-site license for themes and extensions.
A Website means a single TastyIgniter installation that is accessible from a single webpage and is managed by a single administration area, and is operated by a single organisation or individual. For example, a theme can only be personalised once to make a unique website. You'll need to buy another licence if you want to make a second website of the same theme.
Absolutely. A website can be hosted on separate domains as long as it looks the same, the same company name, look-and-feel, logo, and colours.
For each end user that uses your service, you should use an Extended License. As long as there is only one website, there can be multiple end users. For example, a website that collects restaurant information and provides an online service for them.
Go for it! The test environment (http://test.yoursite.tld) and live environment (http://yoursite.tld) for the same domain can each use the same licence.
