... Is there any written legal agreement that bound clients so they are not allowed to modify and re-sell service provider’s work ? ...
...However, there are many (legitimate) reasons a buyer might employ your services and then want to modify or resell the outcome of those services, and it is allowed. Remember, with Microlancer you are selling your time and are fulfilling a brief from a client. In most cases they will fully own what you create for them. It might help to read our FAQ on this (Can buyers of services resell the work that a service provider does for them (for instance, resell as stock)? Can a service provider resell work they do for buyers?). http://www.microlancer.com/faq...

Jordan, thanks for the answers.. I’ve read the faq..

So service providers’ job in Microlancer is limited as a ‘design drafter’ right ? Only as expertises who do design tasks apart from creating something? (Not as creative authors who think and create something from scratch for clients.)

Let’s say I have web-design / UI service.. So it is client responsibility to provide a detailed instruction about the concept, the shapes, the size, the texture and the color schemes.. (I have to state that client must provide detailed design brief in my service description page.)

It is client who should think and provide those idea. Client can not hire service providers with only having raw idea (E.G. by only saying “I need a Corporate Style Web / UI design for a tooth brush company in PSD format. Period.”)

And after the job’s done, the PSD result will be entirely owned by client. That PSD is his intellectual property.

Client are free to code it and re-sell the design result on Themeforest / Codecanyon.

Is that what you’re trying to explain? Or have I missed something?

Regards

Not quite! A client on Microlancer could still give you a vague brief and ask for your help in coming up with the concept (they might just want something in the style of your examples for instance!), that’s totally legitimate and if you want to help the buyer you can!

Regardless, they are still employing you to create that end product for them, in most cases (unless excluded by the terms) they will have full ownership of what you create for them, as such you should always make sure you put the right price on your time, as they would be within their rights to then on-sell that work. :) Hope that makes sense.

I think you guys should drop them a line about this issue, because I’ve also taken part into the beta and my account is still unchanged, so I’m thinking what you’ve encountered is rather a strange error…
the account works but I’m not a provider anymore. :(
I think you need to go to this link and become-a-provider/accept the terms – http://www.microlancer.com/become-a-provider

where did you find that page?

If i click “Become a provider” on main page it redirects me to this:

http://www.formstack.com/forms/envato-microlancer_beta_registration

Sorry for the confusion on all of this. If you were accepted to the Beta, but don’t have access any more. It’s likely because you haven’t accepted the provider terms and conditions. You can only access the page to accept the terms through our direct link (we don’t have the link visible on the site), if you are a service provider and haven’t accepted the terms then do this:

1) Login to Microlancer (www.microlancer.com)

2) Once logged in visit www.microlancer.com/become-a-provider and complete sign up. (this page will give you a 404 if you aren’t logged in or haven’t been invited as a service provider. If you’ve already accepted our terms it will resolve to your services page)

Hope that clears things up. Please email me directly jordan (at) envato.com if you are still having issues getting in! :)

One question: can I transfer my money from Microlancer to e.g. ThemeForest account and then at the end of the month withdraw everything or there is separate earnings account for Microlancer independent of Envato marketplace?

Great idea! I used to use scriptlance back in the day, miss it.

SUGGESTION: Have some kind of ESCROW Service built into it—in hiring microlancers/coders for over a decade, I’ve found that’s absolutely critical, so that:

a) coders deliver what they promised, on time, and

b) buyers don’t add lots of features midway through projects.

So the buyer puts in project fee upfront, it’s held in escrow; on completion of the project to buyers’ satisfaction the funds are released to the coder; the site arbitrates any disputes. Also important is a GOOD FEEDBACK rating system, not a single-dimension star one.
