If your purchase agreement says you have the right to do that, then by all means, go for it. But if it says otherwise (which I bet it does) then no – you shouldn’t pass it along. The person(s) who created the product should be compensated for each program or unit they sell. It’s the same as people downloading cd’s & books for free – if you were the artist or author, I’m sure you wouldn’t be too happy about that. But it happens all the time these days & it shouldn’t – it’s killing the music industry. I certainly don’t mean to pick on you Mary – you’re just asking a simple question. But if it was your product that you created, I’m betting that you wouldn’t want people passing it along to other people without getting compensated. Check your agreement – I’m sure you’ll do the right thing!
Thanks for the feedback Paul. More specifically I want to pass the videos along that I haven’t watched or utilized so the monies I have paid have not been utilized. Almost like giving away concert tickets that I will not be attending.
I definitely wouldn’t pass along a video I’ve already received credit for, I agree that is unethical. But if I haven’t received the CECs and someone else can benefit I would love to be able to pass along the CEC opportunity to them. Thanks again Paul!
