All PLR products you acquire have their own specific terms and conditions regarding what you may or may not do with it. It is in your own interests to understand the terms and conditions of each and every PLR product that you use, to be certain that you stay within the parameters and stay out of trouble.
Let’s look at explanations of some product terms below:

Indicates whether you can sell the product and keep 100% of the profits.
