As a buyer, I really got pissed off by the copyright stuff.
Quoted from Fiverr ToS:
“Buyers are granted all rights for the delivered work, unless otherwise specified by the seller on their Gig page. Note: some Gigs charge additional payments (through Gig Extras) for Commercial Use License. See our “Ownership” and “Commercial Use License” sections below for more information.”
Fiverr also said this (which make the 1st quote kind of bullshit):
Fiverr.com’s content is based on User Generated Content (UGC). Fiverr does not check user uploaded/created content for violations of copyright or other rights.
Clearly, there’re tons of copyright suspicious Gigs, like the Minions.
As a Buyer, how can I know which is copyright clean so it’s OK to buy ??!! Yes, you ask seller, but so what? can you trust thieve’s (if they are) answer?
If you take this seriously, Fiverr is just not usable.
I think Fiverr is going to die on this.
BTW, anyone know the worst case if a buyer accidentally bought some copyright-unclean stuff?
