How do commercial rights actually work?


elliswill

Question

I feel like I've searched the entire internet, and I still can't find a concrete answer. Maybe it simply doesn't exist. If I want to offer music creation services, and allow them to use the song for projects which they may or may not profit off, am I able to do so whilst still owning that song and able to do as I please with it? Does ticking the commercial use box mean they can claim they made this song? I want them to be able to use the song for their film/video, but I don't want to lose any rights to use that song however I want at any point in the future, given I made it. Lastly, is Fiverr's commercial use option talking about the sale of the master file, or the entire idea and everything surrounding it?

Some info is on the terms of service page: https://www.fiverr.com/terms_of_service

I'd look at the ownership section in that TOS and the other sections below it.

Gig Commercial Use License

By purchasing a “Commercial Use License” with your Gig Order, the Seller grants you a perpetual, exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide license to use the purchased delivery for Permitted Commercial Purposes. For the avoidance of doubt, the Seller retains all ownership rights. “Permitted Commercial Purposes” means any business related use, such as (by way of example) advertising, promotion, creating web pages, integration into product, software or other business related tools etc., and strictly excludes any illegal, immoral or defamatory purpose. This License is subject to Fiverr’s Terms of Service. There is no warranty, express or implied, with the purchase of this delivery, including with respect to fitness for a particular purpose. Neither the Seller nor Fiverr will be liable for any claims, or incidental, consequential or other damages arising out of this license, the delivery or your use of the delivery

The model you want to use is Royality-free music - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royalty-free . As a owner of music, you can sell a single-use licence to your work for a fee.You can either sell your music yourself or use a platform such as shutterstock 

On Fiverr you can use shutterstock accessets - https://help.fiverr.com/hc/en-us/articles/8392919554321-Introducing-Shutterstock-with-Gigs
