Other Common Questions Related to the License
Do I need to relicense an item each time I use it?
Yes you do. You need a license for each end project. This ensures contributors are paid for your usage of each asset & you and your clients have the legal right to use the item.
Do I need to relicense Fonts or Addons each time I use them in a project?
No, you do not need to relicense fonts or addons for each project. You only need to register them once for the installation on your device. If registering a font or addon to another computer you use, you need to issue a new license for that installation.
When I use a font in Merchandising, must I combine with another asset?
No you do not. Fonts can be used on their own, so long as you do not redistribute the font itself to any other person.
Can I use an asset from Envato Elements in a logo?
Yes you can.
