Question about Price-Fixing and Resell Rights

3 replies
Hi All,

I am about to release some items for sale and was wandering about how to set a Resell Rights License correctly. I will not be offering a Master Resell License. I will be offering a Non-Transferable Resell Rights License.

I have purchased and digested most of Resell Master Course which states that one should set a minimum selling price. To me it did not sound like I should set a "suggested retail price", but rather the license that I issue should state that the item cannot be sold for less than $dd.cc amount.

I was wandering if I can get into trouble for Price-Fixing if I do this? If this is indeed price-fixing, there will be nothing I can to enforce such a license.

If so, what are some of the alternatives which would prevent the product being de-valued? High Price, Limited Licenses etc?

Any thoughts about this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    From what I understand you can't set a minimum price per say in the U.S., but you can suggest a minimum price. If someone wants to sell it lower I am not sure you can do anything about it. You can issue a license and revoke it, but I bet they would sell it anyway. I have a suggested minimum price for my software and if someone violates it I will revoke the license and not issue any more upgrades, but that won't work with an ebook.

    That is my take on it. Maybe someone else has a different take, and also do a search on the forum and there is plenty there from lawyers too.
