Leasing Rights License
Purchasing these Leasing Rights grants the Licensee a fixed amount of rights to the beat purchased for only one commercial use (e.g. album, EP, single or mix-tape) on any other medium such as CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, LPs, Cassettes, USB-Sticks or digital sales (e.g. iTunes, google-play, etc.). Circulation of up to 2.000 sales units is allowed, all royalty-free. This would count as 1 profitable project.
Once the Licensee has reached the allowed number of sales and any other limits concerning license agreement, no more sales can be made. The Licensee agrees to remove his song(s) from any marketplaces, stores, etc to avoid the song(s) from being sold to third parties. After the salary cap of 2000 sales units is reached the client can upgrade his license. If the exclusive rights are no longer available, this does not affect the client from being allowed to upgrade their License to the highest type of non-exclusive license (such as Premium Lease or Professional Lease).
All files (MP3's and Wavs) purchased will begin with a voice tag integrated at the start of the track, for marketing and copyright purposes. The Licensee commits to not removing it. Voice tags embedded in the file will be removed from the Instrumental and will also be removed from any file purchased under any non-exclusive/exclusive license.
Once the client has completed their purchase, an MP3 file will be immediately downloadable. A license overview, Terms and Conditions, and a receipt will be sent to the client via email. Purchasing Leasing Rights does not make the licensee the sole owner of the beat, nor does it give the licensee any administrative or legal rights to it.
In order for the Licensee to make any profitable income from the purchased beat they must own exclusive rights or a higher non-exclusive rights such as ‘premium leasing rights’ or ‘professional lease rights’. CreativemindsUK forbids the re-selling, unlawful distribution or any modification of any purchased beat.
The licensee understands that CreativemindsUK maintains full copyright ownership of the original instrumental and therefore cannot use any beat compositions for any external media or artistic project without a separate and exclusive license from CreativemindsUK.
The Licensee must include CreativemindsUK on all licensed material in external productions.
Professional Lease Rights
The same Terms and Conditions as the Leasing Rights License apply when acquiring the Professional Lease Rights, but with the following differences:
Professional Lease Rights allow for up to 4.000 sales units and two external media projects. CreativemindsUK reserves the right to collect a penalty of an upgraded amounts.
Premium Lease Rights
Purchasing the Premium Lease Rights withholds the same restrictions as the Leasing Rights and Professional Lease Rights, including the following differences:
Premium Lease Rights allow for up to 10,000 total sales units and 4 profitable projects.
Once the licensee has reached the limit of allowed sales units and further sales are desired, a new license, providing available need to be bought- exclusive rights not bought.
Exclusive Rights grants the customer full commercial rights to the purchased beat. There is no sales cap for exclusive rights. A purchase comes as a mixed tag-free WAV-file, a mixed MP3-file and a download link for separate tracked out WAV-format.
Once a beat has been sold with exclusive rights, it will no longer be available for future licensing. Previous leasing rights being sold before the beat has been sold exclusively are not affected hereby and stay valid until the sales cap has been reached. License owners of non-exclusive rights may upgrade their current non-exclusive license to a higher non-exclusive license (if available). It is possible that a beat has been leased several times before exclusive rights are sold. Once exclusive rights are sold, the beat(s) will be marked as ‘sold’ and any possible download and licensing option will be removed.
Upon request, a sold beat may be removed from any website and marketing space where it has been offered for sale by the licensor, if the licensor agrees to. This excludes demonstration videos (e.g. youtube, etc.) or demonstration audio material used in intros, animations or as background music. The Licensee is not allowed, nor has the authority; to dis-allow/forbid other non-exclusive license-owners any use of the beat-composition(s) for commercial/profitable purpose or take legal actions against non-exclusive license owners.
The licensor forbids re-sale or other distribution of the producer’s beat-composition, either as they exist or any modifications thereof for use in any competitive product, nor can the licensee transfer his rights to the beat-composition to a third party if it’s not a full song with artist’s/licensee’s own vocals or at least lyrics. The Licensee is allowed to sell his song over the beat-composition without any sales limitation or sales cap, worldwide, without term inability, in any commercial/profitable form, and/or transfer the rights to his song over the beat, to another party such as a Record Label, another production company and another artist, but never the rights to the beat-composition itself for a standalone beat-composition product.
The licensee understands that the CreativemindsUK maintains 100% copyright and ownership of the original instrumental composition. CreativemindsUK maintains the administrative and legislative rights to every beat.
The Licensee can use song(s) over beat compositions as background element in TV, Film and DVD / computer game projects without obtaining written consent and/or another license agreement. Licensee must credit CreativemindsUK.
