Licensing

THIS AGREEMENT, serves as a legally binding contract between Mutual Soundz (“Licensor”) and the Licensee. This agreement grants the Licensee non-exclusive rights to the instrumental purchased.

Master Recording

The Licensor hereby grants the Licensee the right to record vocal and/or instrumental synchronization to any or all parts of the Instrumental. The Licensee understands that their non-exclusive usage of the Instrumental is limited to one new composition and if the Licensee wishes to use the Instrumental in other new compositions, then the Licensee must obtain another license to use the Instrumental from the Licensor. The Licensee also agrees to refrain from editing the Instrumental that is being licensed in this agreement, by changing the arrangement of the Instrumental or by removing any melodies, instruments, drum programming or sounds that are contained within the Instrumental.

Profitable Distribution

The Licensee is limited to distributing one (1) version of the Master Recording for profitable use. The Licensee is limited to a distribution of ten thousand (10,000) copies of the Master Recording, which can be distributed on any kind of recording media including, but not limited to: compact discs, DVDs, VHS videos, and all other forms of media. With one year from date leased beat was purchased to distribute until having to renew lease agreement.

Ownership

The Licensor maintains 100% full rights (copyright and ownership) of the instrumental, and can continue to sell it non-exclusively and/or exclusively. The Licensee has neither the right nor authority to sell or license the rights to the Instrumental whether in whole or part to any other party. In the event another individual purchases exclusive rights to your licensed Instrumental you will retain your non-exclusive rights under the limitations listed in this agreement and until these terms have been fulfilled.

General Terms & Conditions

Rights that are given to a customer are not transferable. Customers may edit/alter the length of a beat as they see fit, as long as they own a license to the beat and do not change the sound structure of the beat itself. No changes to a beat are allowed, except of length changes. Therefore it is also not allowed to use any parts, melodies, instruments, sounds, drum arrangements, etc. of the original instrumental composition for other compositions. If a beat contains sampled material, the sample clearing itself needs to be done by the customer, not by Mutual Soundz. The licensee understands that they are responsible for clearing all samples that they choose to use and that the licensor cannot and will not be held liable for the misuse of any sampled material that the licensee uses in conjunction with the original instrumental composition that is being licensed in this agreement. The licensee understands and accepts that he only paid for the production work of the producer. The licensor does not claim to have any rights on any sampled material. Under no circumstances is a customer allowed to resell the beat in any form. After the delivery of the beat Mutual Soundz will be unbound of any further responsibilities to the customer and legally freed of any further duties. Any beat by Mutual Soundz may NOT be uploaded on any website without their permission. Mutual Soundz is not responsible for other sites claiming to sell their beats. Anybody abusing or disrespecting the listed terms and conditions will likely face legal action.

Credit

Credit must always be given to ‘Mutual Soundz’. The Licensee must give production credit to the Licensor for any and all distributed material. This can be done verbally (through recorded vocals on the Master Recording) or written in or on the CD booklet or outside cover. The Licensor reserves the right to keep an audio signature at the beginning of all non-exclusive instrumentals. Proper credit is given as follows: “Beat prod. by Mutual Soundz” or “Music prod. by Mutual Soundz”. Any displayed or downloadable MP3 files must include “prod. by Mutual Soundz” within the file name. By checking I Agree to Beat Licensing Terms at checkout, you automatically agree to the terms stated above and gain non-exclusive rights to the Instrumental.
