Purchasing a standard lease grants the Licensee (Customer) limited artistic and legislative rights to the corresponding beat(s) for one profitable or commercial use on any medium (i.e. album, EP, or mixtape) with a circulation of 2,500 sale units. If 3.000 sale units are reached and further sales are desired, beat must be licensed again, as long as licensing rights are still available. A lease includes an untagged, high-quality 24-bit .wav file of the beat.
A beat can be leased to more than one person simultaneously, until the exclusive rights of the beat are purchased. Once the exclusive rights of a beat have been purchased, the beat will no longer be available for leasing. Previous leasing rights that have been sold before are not affected and are still valid until the 3000 sale units’ cap has been reached. Leasing a beat does not make the Licensee the sole owner of the beat. With a leasing license, the Licensee is allowed to get profitable radio and television-airplay or to perform the song on commercial/profitable shows.
Licensee can not use any beat compositions as background elements in TV, film, profitable internet videos or computer game projects without obtaining written consent & a separate license agreement. Licensee cannot sell, loan, rent, lease or assign any of the products or corresponding rights, to another person. Licensee agrees that Syko Beats (Jason Hawkins) maintains copyrights and ownership of the original instrumental composition. Licensee agrees to display the producer’s name in all physical media or within web presentation, i.e. CD’s, LP’s, digital downloads, etc. Leasing rights are subject to registrations in general terms and conditions, credit, payment, and delivery agreements.
The purchase of exclusive rights grants Licensee (Customer) full artistic and commercial rights to the purchased beats. There is no sales cap related to the exclusive rights. All allowances of standard & premium licenses are included. Previous leasing of standard and premium license rights are not affected and remain valid until the sales caps are reached. Therefore, it is possible that the beat that has been sold exclusively has been licensed before.
The beat will be marked as “SOLD” and will no longer be available for licensing or download. Licensee cannot sell any of the products sold, or corresponding rights, to another person. Licensee understands that Syko Beats (Jason Hawkins) maintains 100% copyright and ownership to the original instrumental composition. Licensee must include on all productions and products the producer’s name. Licensee agrees to display the producer’s name in all physical media or within web presentation, i.e. CD’s, LP’s, digital downloads, etc. Exclusive rights are subject to registrations in general terms and conditions, credit, payment, and delivery agreements.
A unit is measured as each individual sale of your song through singles, albums or any other commercial medium. Units are also used to measure the allowance of usage for monetized online videos, at a rate of 100 views per unit.
2,500 Units = 250,000 views
8,000 Units = 800,000 views
Unlimited Units = Unlimited views
If the unit allowance your license has provided is used up, you will need to update your license accordingly.
