4 simple licenses

Future-proof the Final Work ("End Product") you create and deliver to Buyers when you freelance. Make sure Buyers aren't using your delivery for stuff you're unhappy with or against.

With HostJane's 4 water-tight licensing options, we help you protect the way your intellectual and creative output gets used, both online and off.

We're an Advocate for Freelancers

HostJane's marketplace makes it easy for freelancers to control (and profit from) the deliverable Final Work they produce for Buyers.

Make life easier for Buyers

Seller's can include IP ownership in the cost of the Listing 

Or, sell rights to Buyers

Sellers set their own pricing for different licensing tiers:

  • Option 2: Personal License - Paid license that tells Buyer they can only use the Seller's Final Work in non-commercial, usually personal, projects.
  • Option 3: Limited License - Paid license giving Buyer ability to use Seller's Final Work in a commercial venture, great for start-ups and SMEs.
  • Option 4: Unlimited License - When the Buyer is a business that needs total control, this paid license helps Sellers earn more for their Final Work.
