Redistribution rights

  • Last updated Last updated:
  • While rights are a complex concept and difficult to understand for many who are only just beginning to dip their toes into business, respecting the rights of one’s peers is arguably the most important responsibility of any marketplace member. We attempt to simplify the concept fo redistribution rights into easy to understand set of policies which our members are expected to abide by in order to continue using our platform.

    Note that the following policies also apply fully to forks. Even if the fork no longer contains any of the original product's content. Forking a product is a decision that will stay with how your product is regarded for as long as it exists. Also note that reverse engineering content for redistribution for any purpose other than interoperability, (such as an exact recreation) is expressly prohibited, and treated no different than duplicating the content directly.

    Redistribution Policies​


    You may not redistribute paid/premium content, or content which has not been released the rightful owner for free and public use, without explicit permission from the owner of that content.

    You may not redistribute free content which is also made available through official paid channels, without explicit permission from the owner of that content.

    You may not redistribute free content which has redistribution rights revoked by the owner of that content.

    You may not claim or imply ownership of content which you are redistributing, even where redistribution is permitted.

    Spigot, Craftbukkit and Forks​


    There is currently and has long been an ongoing debate regarding the licensing conflicts which exist in the ecosystem of Bukkit/Craftbukkit and by extension, Spigot and its forks. MC-Market is not in a position to determine the correct legal interpretation of these conflicts, but we are nonetheless dedicated to protecting the rights of content creators on and off our platform. Thus, we expect our users to comply with our policies when it comes to redistribution of paid plugins or paid forks of these projects.

    When it comes to paid plugins or paid forks of Spigot/CraftBukkit and their forks, you must get explicit permission from the author in order to redistribute the content. You may not assume an inheritance of the GPL license by Bukkit to be applicable. Redistributing paid plugins or paid forks without explicit permission will result in the same punishments as having redistributed any other unowned proprietary content.

    Granted & Revoked Rights​

    As stated, content owners retain the right to grant and revoke redistribution rights to their content. The following is a list of such content, which has had rights granted or revoked by their owners.

    If you'd like to grant or revoke redistribution rights over your content and have those specifics mentioned here, please create a support ticket. You will be responsible for informing us of further changes to the provided rights.
