    Sorry I am a newbie :D

    Can I create gig to provide copyright materials for personal use on Fiverr?
    Like, I got a lot of ebooks collection with me. If people need any books in any format, they can ask me. And I will provide them.

    Is that OK for Fiverr? Or it that illegal?

    I don't think it is OK with fiver doing such gigs, though I am not sure. You can read their TOS.

    You need to check Terms of the author from whom you got that ebook.

    Chances are it would be illegal to sell it on fiverr.

    If something is copyrighted you need to ask the copyright holders permission.

    If you are trying to make money out of it chances are the copyright holder will not agree to it. Particularly in the case of ebooks on fiverr you will never get the publisher, for example of the Harry Potter series, to agree to it.

    If you use PLR for this, you have the rights to do that.

    As long as you have the rights you can offer anything.

    If you need PLR search this forum for POPZZZ, and look at his started threads.
