Every item purchased on Envato Market has a unique code, called a purchase code. A purchase code is used by authors to verify you have purchased a licence for the item. The purchase code may be required to access an author’s support site (if support is offered) or to enable automatic updates.

How Do I Get Support For An Item I've Purchased?
Authors who are designers, developers and creatives from all over the globe are responsible for the work you see on Envato Market. Authors are not obligated to provide support, however most do. You will know if an author provides support, simply by viewing the “Support” tab on the item page.
Which Author Payment Option Do I Choose?
As an Envato Market author you need to select the most appropriate payment method in order to receive your earnings. Each payment method and provider may have restrictions regarding which countries they pay to, for legal and / or commercial reasons.
Can I use trademarked names in my items?
When deciding whether or not to use a trademarked name as a title or tag you should ask yourself this question; "Am I describing what it is or what it the item is like?" Using trademarked names to describe what your file actually is is acceptable. Using them to describe what your file is like is not.

Protecting Your Copyright
Some seek to fight all piracy they come across, some want to find ways to motivate users of content to pay for it, and some choose to focus on what they do sell and not change the ways of users who want all their content for free. Ultimately, this is your personal choice (and more below on the path Envato takes on the piracy issue).
