My Take On The Different 'Rights' Available
« on: March 06, 2014, 07:49:39 AM »
With the rash of licences coming through that appear to say one thing on the sales page but an entirely different thing in the licence I just want to give my take on the 5 'rights' levels that we encounter here. (If any of these are wrong then please don't hesitate to set me right)

Personal Use Only (PUO)
Personal Use Only is the most restrictive rights package available. It basically means that it is just for your use; you can't change it or sell it just use it.

Resell Rights (RR)
This right allows you to sell a product and keep 100% of the profits but you cannot pass any rights (apart from PUO) on to your customer. In effect, it is under this right that Mark buys in order to give us PUO as it is only this right that can be legally passed onto our customers.

Master Resell Rights (MRR)

The Master Resell Rights package allows to sell to your customers both the product and the resell rights to that product. In other words, if you buy a product with Master Resale Rights, you can resell it and (if you want) you can pass along the resell rights to your customers too. This increases the value of the product significantly, because your customer may resell the product for profit as you did. In my research for this rights package I did not see that it allows you to change the product in any way although that may be covered in the package terms that you should have got with the purchase.

Private Label Rights (PLR)

The Private Label Rights package allows you to edit or customize a product and even put your name as the author before reselling it. You can change the content in many ways, such as writing an additional introductory paragraph, editing the title, changing the cover or completely modifying the product. Private Label Rights vary, with licenses offering full authorship while others limit distribution, and restrict what can be done with the content. In general, any digital product that allows you to change the content and claim its authorship can be called a PLR product.

Giveaway Rights (G)

The Giveaway Rights package allows you the right to freely giveaway the item as you see fit. However you don't have the right to claim ownership or authorship. You also don't have the right to sell the item or to charge anything for it. On this site Giveaway rights are also offered in conjunction with MRR and so you will need to read the licence to understand what you can do with each part of the product you download.

I hope that this makes sense and, as stated, please don't hesitate to put me right if I've made a boo-boo

Cheers

Awesome post as always Dom!  I think you nailed it bro!

One thing that I would add would be to remind everyone that just because a salespage states "Unrestricted/Unlimited Rights" doesn't mean the product license will allow you to do whatever you want. I've purchased some offers that state "Comes with unrestricted PLR" but then once you make the purchase you find a bunch of "NO YOU CANNOTs ..."

Thanks,
Mark

Great detailed list Dom. Thanks for posting :)

That's one of my BIG pet peeves. Bugs me to no end when marketers use the "Unrestricted" pitch and there are NO's on the rights. Unrestricted should be just that, there should be NO, No's. WSO's are good for that one. To me it's VERY miss-leading, and the crap that gives marketers a bad name. Guess it bugs me because they are doing it to sell more, or get more eyeballs. Bait and Switch?

Another one I just don't get is, when articles come with resale rights, but you can't sell PLR. Just don't make sense to me. An ebook is one thing, you can use that as is. But articles are almost always going to be, or need to be changed. Plus with a PDF, people can't really change it, but with articles, well...

Great explanation ... but I'm still slightly confused about an issue because it's not really stated anywhere (or at least I cant find the information I'm looking for)

I understand the difference between PLR vs Giveaway vs MRR,
but when you have those rights to the articles/videos, does it mean you can (for example)

1. post the articles on your blog? (but NOT creditted to my name)

2. upload the plr/gr/mrr as an opt in free gift for people subscribing to your email list?

3. upload the articles onto article sharing sites?

Hey Fyeahalexx,

Welcome to the forum!  It really depends on the individual product as they all come with their own license.  Is there a specific product that you are looking at?

Thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark,

I'm not really referring to any specific product, but I'm trying to understand what I can and can't do with the different products.

Master Resell Rights License
[YES] Can be sold
[YES] Can sell Resale Rights
[YES] Can sell Master Resale Rights
[YES] Can be packaged
[YES] Can be added to a paid membership
[YES] Can be added to a free membership
[YES] Can be offered as a bonus
[NO] Can sell Private Label Rights
[NO] Can be given away

Let's say my example: I'm only confused with the last line where it says [NO] can be given away.

I mean can i offer it as my free pdf download for opt in subscribers?
Or when it says [GIVEN AWAY], they are referring to the rights to the product?

With the license you posted you can NOT give away the product for an optin.  Offering a free pdf for an optin means you are giving away the product.
