Are You Confused by PLR Rights

PLR rights let you use the work of another author like it’s your own by making changes.

Those changes can be a little as adding an introductory paragraph or as complex as rewriting the entire content.

Any time you can change content that’s someone else’s it’s considered Private Label Rights.

A word of caution here –

Just because you have PLR rights doesn’t mean you have the copyright.

It also does not automatically mean you have other rights, as is the case with reprinting or reselling.

It’s important that you know exactly what rights are being given to you when you purchase PLR content.

The PLR hype began many years ago offering strictly reprint rights.

Since its inception, many things have changed.

Today there are a number of rights offered.

Reprint rights are rights that allow you to re-distribute another author’s work, that’s previously been published.

While seen a great deal online, it’s also common in other businesses.

The terms resell, reprint and resale are commonly interchanged.

If you obtained PLR material make sure you fully understand what rights are being given to you.

Occasionally you will even receive master rights, which allows you to redistribute the content or product and trade the reprint rights.

If you’re feeling just a tad bit confused, you’re not alone.

Relax – once you understand the various terms, they can apply or they may not.

* Give away the product
* Split the product down into articles
* Package the product with other products
* Give away a branded version with your affiliate links
* Allows the buyer to sell resale rights.
* Give it away as a bonus,
* Offer the product in a membership area
* Use it as web content
* Modify the product

While you don’t have to memorize the checklist,

It’s a good idea to be very familiar with it.

If the PLR content you are looking at doesn’t offer you reprint rights there are the questions you should be asking to find out just what you are allowed to do.

Even when you think you’ve got it under control and that you’ve figured it all out things go wrong.

For example, you buy reprint rights to some great content.

And then find out after the purchase that the only way you are allowed to sell the product is through the link the seller provides,

Where he then has people signup for a newsletter thereby siphoning off your potential customers.

That’s deceptive, but sadly it happens.

The good news is that most time buying PLR material is great just make sure you ask all your questions before you make your purchase.
