You can buy a license in order to use a beat legally for commercial and profitable purposes today simply by clicking the Add To Cart button in any beat window on our site. Once clicked you can choose the type of license you require, including Non-Exclusive (ideal for Artists or Labels), Sync (ideal for media professionals or advertisers) and Exclusive (ideal for anyone looking for full ownership rights to a beat). The high-quality untagged beat files will be delivered to you instantly and automatically after checkout and include a signed and dated license agreement.
Demo versions of all beats on our website may be used for free on YouTube for non-monetized, ad-free videos. YouTube’s ContentID audio fingerprinting system may match music in your video to a copyrighted beat from our website and notify you of a* copyright claim*. You can accept this claim and it will not impact on your video or channel, it simply means you will not be able to earn ad revenue.
If you would like to monetize your video on YouTube you will require a Sync (for broadcasting and media use) or Exclusive (for any type of use) license which can be bought from our website. If you own such a license and still have an open copyright claim, please contact us and we will remove it. Note that you do not have the right to submit your own songs to ContentID programs such as TuneCore, Rumblefish or BeatStars without owning the Exclusive license to a beat at which point we will relinquish our copyright and pass it on to you.
A: We negotiate exclusives on a one-on-one basis. We want to know about an artist project, marketing plan, and budget. How are you planning on using the song? Do you have an offer to submit for the exclusive rights? Once we have an offer we will submit to our producers and negotiate until we have a number both sides are happy with.
You will receive an encoded MP3 file of the untagged song, and/or a copy of the raw WAV file. The song file can be delivered digitally or through the mail on a CD. Leasing rights allow you to use the beat (or song) for ONE commercial recording or broadcast. This recording can then be distributed at your price for up to 2,000 copies. Selling more than 2,000 copies means you must acquire a new lease or exclusive rights. You may also use the beat for non-profit promotional use or demos. You have full rights to record, alter, mix the beat/song in any shape, way, or form (except reselling the beat). You will receive a contract in the mail granting you non-exclusive rights to the beat. In the event that someone buys exclusive rights to the beat you have leased, your rights shall stand and the beat is still yours to use. You may also acquire new leasing rights if you sell more than 2,000 copies since your contract predates exclusive sale. The seller will not receive a royalty from the sale of records or downloads. You must however give full credit to the seller (artist and/or producer name) on all commercial recordings. Upon purchasing leasing rights, the seller still owns the beat(s) and the seller is able to resell the beat(s) to any other party until exclusive rights have been purchased.
