  • Reprint Rights vs. Resell Rights

    • Posted Sep 20, 2002 5:12 PM

      There is some confusion here in the use of these terms:

      "Reprint Rights" gives the merchant the right to reproduce the property (ebook, book, audio, etc...)and sell it as many times as indicated by the license. No royalties or fees are usually paid to the publisher or writer, unless otherwise specified. The merchant does not have the right to grant its customers any rights other than a single-use of the property.

      "Master Reprint Rights" gives the merchant the same rights as above, to sell the property for single-use with no royalties or fees. In addition, the merchant may sell as many "Reprint Rights" licences to its customers as indicated by the license. The merchant does not have the right to grant its customers any rights other than "Reprint Rights" or single-use of the property.

      "Resell Rights" grants the merchant the right to resell the property, and pay a specified percentage to the publisher or writer. In some cases the revenue is actually collected by the publisher or writer, who then fulfills the order, and then the correct percentage is forwarded to the merchant. Resell Rights are typically the most limited of all, not the most liberal, as stated in a previous post.
