WSO ReSell Rights - Can anyone please help me

by newxxx
9 replies
can anyone please help me, and tell me what this means:

-------------------------

Here are the rights:

You can Repurpose as is

You can Repurpose, re-record, use for ideas, combine with your own products, and put in your memberships site

There are no other restrictions on selling these trainings or on repurposing them for your own use as your own trainings (you can transcribe, re-record, use for training knowledge to create your OWN 50+ training programs, an so on)

------------------------------

Does this mean that I can give this product away for free, as is, for a product purchase bonus?

Or not ?

Thank You!!!

    Sounds to me like you bought a PLR product and can do whatever you want with it -- but I could be wrong.......

    Ask the person you bought it from is the only reasonable reply.

    With the description you provided, it surely seems like a full PLR right. That would allow you to either use the product as is, or modify that is whatever form you may choose. So yes, you may give the product for free. I'm assuming that you intend to give it away as is. While that can certainly be done, my suggestion would be to "re-purpose" it. It simply means to take it and revamp using your own creativity. The more "original" or different you can make the content, the better it is.
    You never know if someone else is also giving away the exact same content (original PLR). So it would be a good idea to customize it so that yours become a bit unique.

    Since the license doesn't specifically say that the product has to be sold, or cannot be given away, there's a good chance that you can give it away or use it as a bonus... but you should still contact the Product Creator and make sure.

    The terms of the license you mentioned are unclear... it definitely could have been worded better. Depending on who you ask, the license could be interpreted either way. It's better to just ask the seller.

    Whenever you're buying licensed content, and the license terms either doesn't specifically mention your intended use, or it's unclear given the wording of the license terms, you should always ask the seller for clarification.

    I would contact to the product creator, there are not sufficient data about licensing. I am not sure if you can give it free or as a bonus.

    I disagree with all the above responses.

    Assuming your statement is an accurate representation of the restrictions stated at time of sale...
    there are NO restrictions other than that you cannot claim copyright to the material.

    The seller didn't explicitly restrict you from claiming copyright, and he is well within his rights to transfer any copyright he might hold... BUT he cannot transfer those rights to more than one purchaser. He cannot legally sell the copyrights more than once, simply because once he has sold them to the first buyer... they are no longer his rights to sell.

    Regardless of whether he intended that the buyer be restricted as to the ability to give away the product, he relinquished the right to stipulate any such restriction by not explicitly stating it prior to sale.

      I disagree. The license didn't say that there are no restrictions to how you can use the product.

      When you buy licensed content, you're buying certain rights to the content. The product creator decides what those rights are.

      Just because a license doesn't explicitly disallow it, for example give away the product, it doesn't mean that you have the right to, in this case, give away the product.

      Given that it's a Resell Rights product, and the wording of the terms, you can adapt the product, and you can sell the product without any restrictions placed in how you sell the product.

      Selling a product is different from giving the product away or using it as a bonus. Just because there are no restrictions on how you sell the product, doesn't necessarily mean that you can give the product away.

      Given how ambiguous/unclear the terms are, I think it's better for the buyer should contact the seller for clarification, to avoid any potential problems further down the line.

        Hi John,

        Yes. In fact, it did...

        You can Repurpose as is

        You can Repurpose, re-record, use for ideas, combine with your own products, and put in your memberships site

        There are no other restrictions on selling these trainings or on repurposing them for your own use as your own trainings (you can transcribe, re-record, use for training knowledge to create your OWN 50+ training programs, an so on)
        I'm not saying that the seller didn't screw up, and totally mis-word his intent, but...

        By supplying a statement of restrictions at all (which, if you read it - is really a statement of permissions),
        and then EXPLICITLY stating that there an NO OTHER RESTRICTIONS, the seller has explicitly stated that there are NO restrictions at all.

        When you buy licensed content, you're buying certain rights to the content. The product creator decides what those rights are.
        ...and while it probably was NOT his intention - he has explicitly given you the option to resell the product at any price you desire (including $0.00)

        Just because a license doesn't explicitly disallow it, for example give away the product, it doesn't mean that you have the right to, in this case, give away the product.
        I agree - but he HAS explicitly given you the right by saying "There are no other restrictions".

        Selling a product is different from giving the product away or using it as a bonus. Just because there are no restrictions on how you sell the product, doesn't necessarily mean that you can give the product away.
        A lot of Internet Marketers/Wanna be Lawyers may think so - BUT if there is any allowance given to re-distribute a product, but there are restrictions on the circumstances under which that allowance may be exercised... those restrictions MUST be so stated.

        EDIT - Just so no one gets their panties in a wad, I guess I should add that I am NOT an attorney, and have NO formal education in the law - but then... I'm pretty sure (based on the responses given) that none of the others that responded satisfy those criteria, either.
