How to buy a script? legal side of ownership...

4 replies
I am going to buy a PHP script which is a clone of a relatively famous web site.

It there any documents that need to get from the seller to be able to use it legally?

I want to make sure that I will not be sued by someone after I set up my web site

Thank you

    People in general here are very careful about giving legal advice, just thought I'd let you know, so don't expect to much.

    It really wouldn't matter what the seller tells you. If he says "Here is a copy of CNN and you have my permission to use it." that won't matter. He wouldn't have the right to give that to you.

    If you read the terms of service of any serious website, you'll usually find a clause that states no part of its design and/or content may be reproduced in any form or fashion. That includes creating derivative works of the website as well. But a lawyer can help you work out copyright-able gui issues if you want to go down that road.

      Thank you for your answers!

      Is there any standard form of a contract for my situation that I can find on the Internet or somewhere?
