Envato announced late yesterday that they now have updating TOS for membership into their marketplaces. The changes are “minor” so most people and authors shouldn’t have any issue.
Things of note are listed in the announcement but a lot of clarification has been added so that the language isn’t confusing, such as changing “application” to “signing up,” and such things.
If you’re a big-time player you’ve most likely reviewed the changes but for the average user you can continue on with your day now.
A personal aside, after having created more than a few companies and products I find terms of service so incredibly boring. I suppose there’s no way around it and the larger you get the more complex the TOS needs to become, right?
Makes me wonder if there’s any short form TOS that’s very useful and practical that exists that people have used for their products and companies? Care to share them with the community here?
I ask this because I’m actively thinking about the TOS for an app I’m building and I want to make it as simple as possible without confusing users in the slightest.
