    Hey
    Is it legal to use same wordpress theme ordered from themeforest more than one site?

    or do i have to buy the same licence again and again?

    It's indeed a lil hard to read.

    From FAQ:

    "You can Sell and make any number of copies of the single End Product."
    "
    This license is a "single application" license and not a "multi-use" license, which means that you can't use the Item to create more than one unique End Product."

    No, you can't... one licence is for one site... extended licence is for multiple sites.

    Why do you need to use one theme for many websites?? Try one theme for 22 or 3 websites.

    but themeforest says that we have to purchase another licence for using more than one website
    and in the download section of BHW users are sharing their purchased license.is it legit?

    I bought tons of themes and some developers sell multi license themes and some single license.

    I bought 2 themes from mythemeshop and they do allow this, themefores don't.

    I bought multilicense theme from Themeforest for 30 niche sites and I paid 320$ (49$ original theme).

    But hey, you can use it and hope owner does not catch you.

    This ^

    You're supposed to have one license per site, but they cant really track how many different sites you've installed the same copy of the theme on.

    If you're running a business, I'd recommend just getting yourself an extended license and avoid any sort of liability, just in case.

    If it's for longterm websites you are building (future authority sites), get a license for each one of them or a multi-license.

    If it's just a money site that you're not passionate about, download the themes from BHW and cross your fingers that you don't get caught.

    Of course, 1 license = 1 site.

    If you using the same theme for all sites looks odd. You can find lots of free themes in Google. Some of the free templates are royalty-free for use in both personal and commercial projects.
