Dear (re-)seller of KNOPPIX CDs/DVDs,
Due to a vast increase of requests for commercial as well as
non-commercial links on the Knoppix vendors page
http://www.knopper.net/knoppix-vendors/, we have
restructured our web pages. The goal is to create a fair and equal
presence for each vendor interested in advertising on knopper.net.
All things considered, this is the deal:
- Each interested knoppix-vendor will be listed with a single entry,
containing his own logo, a short bubblehelp description and a link to
the corresponding Knoppix webshop page or order address.
- Price for being listed on the vendors page is based on the number of
sold CDs, DVDs or other KNOPPIX-related items (merchandizing) at
50 Euro-cent per sold item (tax included).
- Included in this price is, apart from the link on a frequently visited
webpage, (limited) support from KNOPPER.NET to your customers having
technical questions about Knoppix CDs you send out. However, questions
about defective burned CDs/DVDs, or general questions about your
products and services etc. will only be redirected to your own support
- As official KNOPPIX vendor, you can either report your quarterly or
yearly amount of sold KNOPPIX items to KNOPPER.NET in order to request
an invoice, or just send a donation via paypal or flattr,
mentioning your registered webshop as subject.
- From time to time, interested vendors can receive special offers for
reselling manufactured "Knoppix special editions" that have been
produced for various events or expos.
Please note that neither an agreement with KNOPPER.NET, nor a link on
the knoppix-vendors page is a requirement in order to sell the original
download version of KNOPPIX in general. The GPL allows you to sell
KNOPPIX at any price you like, to whom you like (local trade and export
laws may apply), provided that recipients get the product under the same
license terms and conditions as you did. On the other hand, being listed
as an "official vendor" makes it easier for potential customers to find
their nearest CD shop directly from the KNOPPIX website, and therefore may
increase your sales and awareness. Plus, we will give (limited) support to
your customers having technical questions about the KNOPPIX items you send
To take advantage of an advertising link on the knoppix-vendors page,
please use the following form for sending in your webshop information
to knoppix-vendors (at) knopper.net:
- The URL of your webshop, preferrably a direct link to your Knoppix
- Your webshop logo. The picture may not exceed 260 pixels in width and
64 pixels in height, and will be entered with a fixed size and a
dropshadow on the vendors page for faster loading and consistent look
We will rebuild the logo on request, in case that you want to change
it some time.
as plain text:
* a max 20 characters text for the table header containing the name
of your shop, which will also be used as ALT-Tag in the logo,
* a max. 300 characters text for the long description of your shop.
- As an option: Do you want to recive notifications about special event
editions or kits that can be resold?
- Your shipping area (country/state, worldwide/international)
A copy of this letter and a convenient order form for entering the shop
data are present on http://www.knopper.net/knoppix-vendors/new.php.
With kind regards
