I am writing this to know the opinion of sellers from Animated Explainer Video Category.
I have come across many Gigs which are selling videos made with GoAnimate, Videohive Templates and using other software too.
As we already know these companies certain set of rules for selling videos made on their platform or through their templates.
Like GoAnimate charges 80 USD (39 USD if you are a registered reseller with them Just Like me) for commercial rights transfer for each video sold and Videohive wants the user to buy a copy of template everytime a video is created for sale to the third party. (Extended License also states that)
Let’s talk about GoAnimate for now.
If we analyze the conditions above it is impossible to sale a video here on Fiverr for less than 65 USD.
Assuming 10 USD is spent for voice over and script writing services. This too if you are registered reseller which is not the case with every seller.
Now there are N numbers of Gigs which are selling videos below that and are successful too.
But they are not ethical they are not transferring rights.
And these companies do not have time to investigate each and every gig and ask for proof that they are complying with their Terms of service.
This situation is not good for ethical sellers who are paying hefty commercial rights fees and are not able to get orders as their prices are high. (You now know why?)
What do you think about it?
- Fiverr should add commercial rights section in video gigs and ask sellers to upload proof every month
- We should report it to GoAnimate, Videohive etc and wait for a month to see results which are not assured
I think Fiverr including a commercial rights option is more viable.
Please comment too what do you think?
