Bought a character or design?
This journal applies to all sales made on deviantART (deviantART, Inc. is in Los Angeles) and the US. There are international copyright resale treaties, and it can get intricate. 

Before you post with the laws of your country, make sure you are aware this journal is about the purchase and resale of intellectual property, also known as IDEAS. I am not discussing the resale of commissioned art or anything else unrelated to adoptables, designs, characters, etc.
Bought a character or design the seller said you can't resell? Well give them the finger and show them this journal.
What you can do with a fully purchased intellectual property (character, design, etc, in this case!) depends on the details of a specific transaction, and what the agreement was or even implied IF any agreement was stated or implied. But no it is not even possible for some

Please don't buy adoptables you can't resell,
Have some self-respect and stop buying adoptables artists tell you you "can't resell," for Christ's sake. 
I consider this rule stealing, selfish, and inconsiderate. Legally, you could resell the design despite what the artists says and regardless of what their rules say. I don't really care about respecting an artists wishes if the artist is such a stingy asshole to where they expect you to pay $50 or more on an OC and then not be allowed to resell it when you paid for the fucking ownership. I get violently ill when I see, "BUY-OUT, $200. DO NOT RESELL." If someone tells you "you can't resell this character," they're LITERALLY telling you that you're paying for PARTIAL ownership. You don't even completely own that design, you partially own it. 
But if you wish to respect the artist, then just don't even buy it. Don't support someone like that who would literally voluntarily or involuntarily con you like that.
"If you buy it you own it. If you paid for it, it’s you

Buyer/Seller Protection for Adoptables (READ)
I am making this to clear the air on the common misconception of making rules for adoptables, also to help EVERYONE involved. Recently I have been making a lot of anti-seller journals that make me seem super shady, but I am on both sides.
You are not protected if you have your rules in your adoptables' description, ending with a, "You agree to these terms upon purchase." That is not enough to protect you, especially in court.
Adoptables are known as intellectual properties, or IP for short.

"Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce. IP is protected in law by, for example, patents, copyright and trademarks, which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create."

They have a whole clusterfuck of rules, but most of them are the same for any digital, non-physical item. I
