s/o Do not resell curriculum

I think it is a bum deal when you purchase something and don't realize you can't resell it...so I thought we could make a list of known do not resell curriculum...

These are the ones I know of...
1.Calvert
2. Winter's Promise
3. SOS

If anyone knows of more, we can add to the list.

I dont' have any more to add, but I really think I would steer clear of any "no resale" curriculums.

Think about it.. they obviously are only thinking about their own money making and not the homeschooling families that they are suposedly out there to help. Most of us are one income families, and not all of us have a Dr or lawyer's wages as our income amount. If they can't respect that we struggle financially to be able to provide the best education for our children, then I can't respect them enough to use their curriculum.

That is why I thought the list would help. There is always so much fine print and some of them aren't in BIG, BOLD letters that you can't resell. It is more hidden until it is too late and you have already purchased.

Found another one...

Can I re-sell my copy of Tapestry DE?

No. Resale of Tapestry DE is a violation of the End User License Agreement.

I really let Rosetta Stone have it over this. I mean I guess I see their point and this is the standard with software, but it ticks me off anyway. You can get around it if you keep your original order info and give it to the person you sell it to. They will give you a new reg code/key.

I sold my entire Calvert curriculum. Manuals, books and all. I just did it privately and not threw their site. It cost a lot of money. I feel like if I paid all that money for it then it’s mine to do as I please, but that's just me.

Calvert doesn't even want you to give it away.

My Father's World (just the teacher's manual and student sheets)...everything else is a gathering of stuff. Which is why I don't mind too much. In reality, the manuals are used again with subsequent children when you reach the cycle again.

Sonlight Instructor Guides - of course, I can't find confirmation of this, only what I've been told.
