CC BY 3.0

Hello,

I am looking at your site and would like to clarify your claim that the templates are licensed under “CC BY 3.0”.

First, CC BY 3.0 explicitly says “You are free to: Share — copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format” while your License page says “You are not allowed to distribute, redistribute, sell, resale, rent, and lease our template.” (emphasis mine).

Second, the piece of code you demand to be included isn’t what CC BY 3.0 demands for proper attribution. This is all you need to specify to meet the demands of CC BY 3.0:
[name of template] by <a href=“https://colorlib.com”>colorlib</a> Licensed under <a rel=“license” href=“http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/”>Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License</a>.

I have inquired with Creative Commons as well, but would like your input as to this.

Hello @erez

Sorry for the confusion, but what i know for sure is that you have to follow rules on our website :slight_smile:

I have no issue with the requirements on your site, just with the claim that it is a Creative Commons license.

Erez thank you for your interest
If this is an important question for you then you can use contact us page to contact the owner of the website for more details, here we are technical support and probably our answers on such question are not enough :slight_smile:
If you have anything about templates let me know

It can be redistributed only if the original copyrights remain in place and they are not altered in any way. Most people with redistribution mean removing copyrights, not adding anything new to it and then enjoying the results. This license does allow redistribution but you have absolutely no rights to claim this products as your own, even when modified. They are and always will be our products whatever modifications you do.

That’s why we sell licenses to lift these limitations: https://colorlib.com/wp/licence

It can be redistributed only if the original copyrights remain in place and they are not altered in any way

That is not how Creative Commons work. Your “original copyright” includes an “all rights reserved” and a pingback URL. To comply with the CC BY 3.0 all is needed is, as I’ve mentioned above [name of template] by <a href=“https://colorlib.com”>colorlib</a> Licensed under <a rel=“license” href=“http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/”>Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License</a>.

Either way, I’m going to purchase the template I’m testing. I would’ve had no issue crediting colorlib with it (as I’m doing with everything else I’m using via CC, regardless of whether I’ve paid for it or not), but your claims of releasing under the CC license are bogus.

Also, I’m placing this here because it’s not a question, it’s an issue and people who are using your template should be aware of that.

hey there

Dear @erez is there anything else? is your question answered?

Yes, I guess so.

Thank you, Erez

feel free to open new tickets anytime you wish :slight_smile:
