    Hi there, have you guys any experience in buying the rights of a virtual product? What is the process? Could you guys direct me to any info as to how the process goes as I am unsure of buying one from a person in fear of a fraud and in fear of a possibility that the rights aren't really true "rights".

    contract written and signed by the counterparts
    you just need something to demonstrate that now you are the one who own that thing

    What Dani said, but you should also get it notarized for extra security. Also have the contract looked over by an actual lawyer. Not an internet lawyer. Go find a law firm and ask them to check it out.

    What if it's just an eBook or small PDF file that's worth $150 - $200. It's cheap but the content is good but I don't want others to have it also with their names on it. It will make my company look bad.

    I don't think getting a lawyer to look it over would be too much especially with only a cheap eBook like this.

    Any other suggestions?

    Good luck with obtaining rights to something so small and inconsequential. The reason for lawyers and notaries is so if you go to court it's pretty much an instant win for you. For something so small such as an ebook, you're probably not going to take them to court if they break the contract so all you can do is get them to sign a contract and hope they abide.

    It's not really inconsequential. What I fear is that with the traffic my site is making (7 digits), this little eBook or these little eBooks will probably sell 30-50 times a day. Despite only having a 1 digit earning since I sell is so cheap, multiplying that much times will likely have me worry about someone who will immediately proclaim that he owns this and wants all my earnings or something.
