Many ebooks are available on the web. Some come with some resell rights and the ability to make money by putting them for sale on your website.
When you buy an ebook with resell rights, you must be certain what you have just purchased. An ebook purchase on the internet is usually only for your personal use unless it states otherwise. Especially if copyrights are involved, you probably can not resell the ebook. A separate resell rights document will be present if you have purchased additional privileges. The document will state clearly what you can and cannot do. It is imperative that you review this document thoroughly to understand the rights.
Sometimes you may resell the ebook on your website, but you may not be able to give it away. Many times you are not allowed to sell the ebook on auction sites. If this privilege is allowed, proceed with caution. It is advisable to search under the product name as your potential profits will be seriously undercut by the auction sites. Another red flag is if the product is allowed to be given away free. Do not confuse this right with the right of only to be given away as a bonus in conjunction with a paid product. Many times the free bonus product will have a minimum dollar amount that has to be paid for the main product.
Obviously, there are different resell rights attached to different ebooks. Master resell rights and private label rights are two names these rights are called. The difference is not as important as reading the resell rights document. If you are familiar with each right that should be clearly stated, you will be less likely to violate the legal agreement. And legal ramifications are never any fun.
Another important point is to look at the contents of the product you just purchased. Your marketing efforts will be greatly enhanced. And marketing and ad promotion will be a large part of your website’s success.
But the biggest obstacle to overcome is understanding your rights. So print out the license and carefully review each right.
