    This is something you should discuss with the writer before you buy the articles. Some writers are absolutely ok in being ghost writers (the buyer puts their name under the article) but some might want their profile to be listed so they can raise their authority. As long as the writer is ok with your terms and you have requested the text to be unique for your website then you can safely post it and pursue anyone that copies it from you.

    It depends on the agreement between you and the writer. But on forums, usually writers will give you all rights the for the articles you purchase, and the writer has no right to use these articles.

    I think that @Rado_ch has it right, but I also recall a U.S. Court ruling many years ago regarding newspapers using freelanced articles that said that the authors, though fully paid and who had agreed to give up all rights, still had some rights. I cannot recall the details, however so be sure to do a little legal research before assuming it is all good.

    Be careful with what you buy on here. A lot of times you will have someone resell you something with their resell rights when they don't even have resell rights. You will still be liable.

    If you are buying custom content from the author then you want to have it clearly written out that you are now the sole owner of the content and it can't be resold or used by anyone else but you.

    Ultimately you also get what you pay for. If you are paying pennies I doubt the articles you are purchasing are written for you.

    A lot of cheap writers copy content, so they cannot give you the rights. Before taking action against someone you should check that it is not you inadvertently using somebody elses copyrighted content

    You should ask the writer for his permission, for example, to write his permission for the articles in an email to you.

    Taking into consideration that most of the content is rewritten, you should have no hesitation while using the article, because in fact it's not creative work but mostly technical one.

    But of course, as guys already said you had better discuss this with the writer.

    Horrible advice.

    First off just because you feel *most* content is rewritten doesn't mean the content in question automatically is. Even if so, plagiarism can get you in to just as much trouble if not worse.

    Secondly, you should always have hesitation when using ANY content you purchase. Why? Because unless you HIRED someone to write specific content (and spent a LOT of money) for you odds are the re-distributors have sold that article to many clients just like yourself.

    Third... "because in fact it's not creative work but mostly technical one" WHAT THE F*CK does this even mean??? Sometimes I wish DP'ers should just stay in their cave and not comment.

    If you purchase an article or series of articles that were not written specifically for you it will NOT be original and you will NOT have the rights to it...

    Not safe. The best way is to directly hire a professional writer and stipulate in the contract that all rights be transferred to you. If you buy the article here, there is big chance that the article may have been also sold to others. How much did you pay? Is it a sizable amount that merits the content to be exclusive for you alone and not to be sold or have been sold to others after or before you? Do yourself a favor. Hire a professional and spend with reason.

    Without the original poster even replying I'm willing to bet he paid $3 for 150 articles on "how to stop smoking" or "how to find a mesothelioma lawyer" and wants to know if the seller invested 200 hours of work to make $2.45 (less $.55 for paypal fee) off of his purchase only....

    Who cares bro.

    I have a site with 300+ unique articles that have been stolen over and over again. Hell, people have looked at my site and made a site to do that to rank right under me.
    There isn't jack you can do about it legally unless you think it's a fun hobby to hire a lawyer and pay him $50K to find some 18yr old in india with cool clothes you can sue him for.

    If you have bought the article, I think writer has given you permission to publish it, I mean that is the idea of selling the article :) Still, you should check with the writer before buying the articles.
