Is this even viable with all the free resources available, or worth a possible lawsuit?

Especially since you posted this in a public website that some of their devs probably frequent?

No disrespect, but rather, questions to prompt discussion. ❤️💯


If you can let me know what exactly you're trying to say that will be better for me to explain further.


Absolutely Sir!

I can only speak as a Westerner here, it may be different in your region.

With all of the free learning resources currently available, why would someone want to pay money to clone Udemy?

Even if you did, their market share of the learning sector is vast, the person bankrolling this would never see much ROI (Return on Investment).

Sure you might be able to hire a genius marketer, but Udemy, Codecademy, and Freecodecamp.org basically have this sector on lock.

Secondly, if you cloned Udemy and didn't change it enough, you're begging for a lawsuit in the states. Copyright laws are strict in this side of the pond, and you listed out their entire structure ad verbatim. That's lawsuit territory my friend, if you were to bring it to market, and who the heck wants to litigate? 😏

Yes you can spin that enough to maybe wiggle out of a lawsuit, but is it worth the risk?

Maybe it is to the right person, you never know. 💯❤️

In terms of business there are number of clients who are paying us to develop the website like Udemy which is platform to provide online education. And they are generating enough amount of revenue in which they can easily have profit. As you're talking about ROI , it can be possible if you have proper business plan, marketing strategy and niche market for your platform. And it's all long term process you will require patience in order to generate real profit.
Now as you're talking about copyright laws, i'd like to let you know that our team provide the whole customize design which can be completely different from the Udemy and you can have the functionalities of udemy. So there will not be any issue of Copyright or anything.
I hope you can understand from this.
Thank You.

Good to hear you're killing it over there! 💯
