TOPIC: Market Place Forum Rules

Market Place Forum Rules 8 years 3 months ago #1

This forum is here to provide a convenient area to allow you to buy and sell software and hardware. Although primarily intended for second hand goods, developers and shops are more than welcome to post special offers / cross-grades in here too. Also, if you find any good offers on the Net why not post them in here and share the joy.

Group buys can also be planned / discussed here.


You may not sell/trade anything that you are not legally entitled to, whether due to license restrictions, not owning the original in the case of software (cracks, warez, etc.), or any other bizarre reason that would make it illegal to sell the item.

If selling software you must obtain permission to transfer the license from the developer before advertising it for sale, failure to do so will almost definitely be in breach of the license agreement. Sample CDs and sample based instruments have notoriously restrictive license agreements so check before you try to sell.

NOTE: You may not agree with the license agreement, and you may plead that it is illegal/immoral/invalid in your country, but that's not for us to decide, if a license agreement states that you can't resell/transfer it then you can't sell it here.

Important note regarding sales in the EU

According to a 2012 judgement by the Court of Justice of the European Union: "An author of software cannot oppose the resale of his 'used' licences allowing the use of his programs downloaded from the internet".

An official press release / summary is available here (PDF)

This states "even if the licence agreement prohibits a further transfer, the rightholder can no longer oppose the resale of that copy."

We are not in the legal profession here at 3Dstreaming Community, but with this information you can decide what to do.

If you wish to sell something that was considered unsellable before this judgement and the "author of software" hasn't (yet?) changed their policy, we ask that you make it clear in your sale post that there is the potential that the sale / transfer process may not go smoothly (and make it clear why).

In any event, we are in no position to arbitrate between the seller, the "author of software" and / or the buyer.


3Dstreaming Community takes no responsibility and can not be held liable for any sales / purchases made through this forum, you acknowledge that you do so at your own risk. However if you have any problems with a sale / purchase please let us know which member caused problems and we will take necessary action to ensure they are warned and / or banned (depending on the situation, obviously).

When you have sold the item offered for sale please ammend the topic title and add the word SOLD. These threads will then be deleted.

NOTE: In an effort to keep the content of this forum relevant, any topic that is not replied to for 60 days will be deleted automatically.

If anyone wants to expand upon, or improve the rules / guidelines please post below. ADMINISTRATOR
