When do I transfer commercial rights to a video?

This article explains when to transfer the commercial rights to a video created with Vyond. 

To determine if commercial rights must be transferred, use this litmus-test question: 

"Will this video be used, either directly or indirectly, in someone else's business?" 

If the answer is yes, then a rights transfer is required. You must contact us at support@vyond.com in order to facilitate rights transfers in Vyond Studio.

NOTE: "Business" is defined as any commercial venture, whether for profit or not. 

 

More Information

Videos for commercial use can be created with any subscription, but a license to sell and/or transfer the commercial rights is only available with a Vyond Premium, Professional, or Enterprise subscription. Transferring commercial rights requires a $99 per-video fee. Once the rights are transferred, the original video creator may no longer use the video for any commercial purpose.

 

When to Transfer Commercial Rights

You must transfer the commercial rights to a video created with Vyond any time a video is produced and delivered to a customer who will use the video in a commercial venture. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Marketing
  • Training
  • Product or service announcements
  • Introductory or Explainer videos

Remember and use this litmus-test question: 

"Will this video be used, either directly or indirectly, in someone else's business?" 

If the answer is "yes," then the commercial rights to the video must be transferred.

In order to facilitate payment, and ensure rights are transferred properly, please contact support@vyond.com and we'll help you out!

 

What about Joint Ventures?

The video is licensed to the entity that purchased the subscription, regardless of the financial or business relationships that entity has with others. So as long as the video is not being transferred to a separate entity, a commercial rights transfer purchase is not necessary.
