Do I own all rights/intellectual property after I purchase an order?


I am doing a childrens book and seeking an artist for illustrations. once we agree on price do I then own all rights/copywrites etc? meaning if I wanted to sell it with my words and ideas but the artist is the illustrator do I own any royalties to the artist later? I would like to own all intellectual property of my project so I dont have to worry about anyone else down the road… THAN YOU


If you check out the Terms of Service at the bottom of the Fiverr main page you should find the answer to your question.


I came here looking for the same type of information.

I found this:

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.

And this:

Commercial Use License:

By purchasing a “Commercial Use License” with your order, the Seller grants you a perpetual, exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide license to use the purchased delivery for Permitted Commercial Purposes. All intellectual property rights of the purchased delivery are hereby assigned to you. “Permitted Commercial Purposes” means any business related use, such as (by way of example) advertising, promotion, creating web pages, integration into product, software or other business related tools etc., and strictly excludes any illegal, immoral or defamatory purpose. This License is subject to Fiverr’s Terms of Service. There is no warranty, express or implied, with the purchase of this delivery, including with respect to fitness for a particular purpose. Neither the Seller nor Fiverr will be liable for any claims, or incidental, consequential or other damages arising out of this license, the delivery or your use of the delivery.

and this on ownership.

I just hired someone to do some concept art based on my writing. I think we are covered.
