Hi There!

A lot of clients are asking me if i can make a project for them. I bought the project files from authors on videohive with a regular license.

Is it legal to buy another regelar license for the client and charge my own price for customize the project?

If so… Can i purchase another regelar license on my own name for the client?

Kind regards,

Maik

This is legal as long as you’re not selling the project as your own. Your clients should know that they are paying you for the service of customizing the template, not for the creation of the entire work. But yes, if the client is okay with this, the single license would be enough.

You can also buy it on behalf of the client. But that means that the purchase history is in your account when the client is the one that actually owns the single license. So if that client decides to come on here for support at any point in time, there would be no record of their purchase, and it could get difficult.

Thank you,

I need to explain that someone else design the project and that i will customize the project.

If i can buy a license on behalf of the client and i will customize the project i am the link between the autor and my client. The client don’t need the support.

I could use one project for different clients, but i will give the authors credits for there great jobs. But if the client get a problem with a licence issue he can point at me and i can show that i have 5 licence for 5 different movies. Is that correct?

I can see myself as a link between the authors and my clients.

Happy that’s legal!

Regards!

Not sure exactly what you were asking for in this last question. But just wanted to point out that you cannot use one file multiple times on one license. For example, if you but a file for client A. You customize it and then give it to Client A, project over. Now Client B comes along and wants something similar…the license you bought for the Client A project is a Single Use license, meaning it can be used for one project. Now that the project with Client A is over, you’d need to purchase the file again to use with Client B.

Exactly Mark, and yes Filips, I resell the project to another client who needs a video promo.

I get the single license and only use the project once for my client. I’ve never had the case when another client ask for the same project, in which case I will need to buy the file again as Mark pointed.

if you have more questions, Maik336, you can always shoot me an email

Have an awesome day
