Licenses

Every downloadable product on Distribly must include a license. If you're a seller, then you need to choose a license which contains the rights you want to grant or not grant to buyers of your product. Distribly offers a few different license types, and also allows you to add your own custom licenses.

Adding a custom license

To add a custom license, choose Use a custom license from the license drop-down menu when you're creating a product. Here you can add your own license text, or paste a link to the license or licenses you want to use.

Which license should I use?

Whether your product is text, software, or something else, you need to find the right license. We've prepared some information to help you make your decision if you are not sure which license you should use.

Licenses for software

Because of the many different types of software out there, the number of licenses is also very large, and they are often specific to a single piece of software. For this reason, Distribly lets you use your own licenses for software, which you can simply add as custom licenses.
