Software

You could create software programs and sell those. If you don't know how to create your own software, you could hire a freelancer to create programs for you. Additionally, it is also possible to get rights to resell various types of existing programs (see below).

Note: eBay has rules on the types of digital products you may sell there, and these rules may vary from time to time. For current information please review eBay's policies on downloadable media.

These resources may help: If you don't want to create your own software another idea is to distribute (for example, on CD-ROMs) copies of software which you have permission to distribute.

While you can not simply copy most software packages (copyright does not allow it), there are software packages which you can get permission to distribute, for example:
  • If you know of a niche software package distributed by a small company, you may be able to negotiate a deal with the authors, allowing you to sell copies of their software. (It would probably be a good idea to get the agreement in writing!)

  • Authors who license their software under the GNU General Public License ("GPL") [and other similar Open Source Licenses - check the license's Terms and Conditions], have granted you (and others) permission to distribute their software, provided you comply with the GPL's Terms and Conditions.

    One example (of many) of software that is available under the GPL, is the Linux operating system. Although, please note that Linux packages that you can buy, often include other software under proprietary licenses on the same media, which you can not lawfully redistribute - so you will need to check the license terms for all the items that you wish to distribute to make sure it is allowed.

    While the GPL-licensed software can often be downloaded free from the Internet, it is possible to build a business based on distributing such software - for example, customers may prefer to buy from you if you provide an easy-to-use CD-ROM, with clear instructions, installation procedures, etc.

    An example of a company which has built their business around Open Source is RedHat, Inc. who are a public company listed on the US NASDAQ stock exchange.
