Hi, I’m new to all this: ebook cover, images and rights; and I have some questions.
First I’ll describe why I am on Fiverr so that you understand my questions better. I wrote a book and want to publish it on amazon-kindle. I therefore came here to have someone do the ebook cover.
I saw how most sellers do, they offer different gigs and extra options.
And then some say they use images from websites that are 100% free to use, others ask me to choose images from some paying websites.
-Question 1: If a seller uses an image that is 100% free to use and then sells me his work with “commercial use”, I understand I’ll own the rights to the modified image. What happens if someone buys the rights or deposits the rights on the original 100% free to use image?
-Question 2: Does the “source file” has anything to do with copyrights?
-Question 3: If a seller asks me to choose an image from a paying website, buys it for me, delivers me the finished work with “commercial use”, will I own the rights to the finished work + the image that was bought?
-Question 4: How can I verify that the seller bought the image or simply copied it from the website?
