What Is A Standard Lease?

Adamack Beats offers you various different beat license options to suit the needs for your songs.

The first license type is called a Standard Lease.

A Standard Lease to a beat is a form of non-exclusive rights. This means that after you lease the beat, it will remain on Adamack Beats and can continue to be leased out to other artists, until somebody purchases the Exclusive Rights.

To help you understand what a Standard Lease is in the easiest way possible, I’ve made a list of rights which the Standard Lease offers you:

A Standard Lease:

– Allows you to record your vocals over the beat and distribute it to your audience.

Allows you 3,000 distributions of your song. A distribution is defined as any physical or digital transfer of the song to another person for profit or non-profit. This includes selling a CD/DVD of the song or of your album, selling the song on iTunes, sending the song to someone via email or any other electronic/physical transfer.

Allows you to keep 100% of your profits from these 3,000 distributions.

Allows the producer to keep his rights to the beat, and allows him to continue selling leases to other artists until somebody purchases Exclusive Rights.

Allows your rights for up to 2 years from the date of purchase.

Allows you to perform your song live unlimited times during your leasing term.

Allows you to upload audio/video to streaming sites on the internet and receive unlimited plays/views. You MUST give credit to the producer (Adamack) for producing the beat. You can include this production credit in the song/video description.

Allows 100 spins of your song on radio. If you receive more, please contact Adamack at adamackbeatz@gmail.com to discuss further licensing or Exclusive Rights.

So basically, to sum things up, the Standard Lease allows you to record your vocals to the beat and distribute up to 3,000 copies of this song for profit or non-profit, for either 2 years or until you run out of distributions (whichever occurs first).

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to send me an email at adamackbeatz@gmail.com.

 

What Is An Exclusive Rights License?

Another option you will see in the beat “Buying Options” section of the site is the Exclusive Rights option.

If you purchase Exclusive Rights to a beat, you will become the new owner of the beat. You will have unlimited rights, without any restrictions.

When you purchase Exclusive Rights to a beat, you will have the following rights:

Unlimited distributions, forever. You will be able to distribute unlimited copies of your song through album sales, iTunes, or any other means of distribution, and your license never expires.

You keep 100% of your earnings. When you purchase exclusive rights to a beat, you will only need to pay the one-time Exclusive Rights fee, and that is it. I will never ask for publishing, royalties, etc.

The beat will be removed from the internet. Once payment is made, the beat will be removed from my websites, so that nobody else may lease or purchase exclusive rights to the beat.

I will send you the tracked-out WAV files. Once you purchase Exclusive Rights to a beat, I will send you a ZIP file with all of the individual, separated tracked-out WAV files to every single sound in the beat. This comes with no extra charge, as it is built in to the Exclusive Rights price. The tracked-out files to a beat help tremendously with achieving an optimal mix with your vocals. For more on the importance of Tracked-Out WAV files, please check out my article here.

You will receive an Exclusive Rights contract. This contract was professionally written by an entertainment lawyer, and it will protect your Exclusive Rights to the beat. The contract will be signed by the producer (Adamack), and sent to your email.

You may re-sell Exclusive Rights once. If you purchase exclusive rights to a beat, but the song does not end up making the cut for your album, you may always sell Exclusive Rights to the beat once time to another artist. You may set your own price. I allow this to give the consumer the option to recoup any losses if their song does not end up doing as well as expected.

You may NOT lease the beat to others. The one single restriction of an Exclusive Rights license is that you may not lease the beat out to other producers after you purchase it. As stated above, you may sell Exclusive Rights to it once, but leasing it out is against the terms.

You must give Adamack Beats production credit where applicable.  Although you become the new owner of the beat, Adamack still is entitled to credit for producing it. Please give credit to “Adamack Beats” where applicable. This includes, but is not limited to: CD inserts, YouTube song descriptions, verbal “shout-outs”, and anywhere else that production credit can be given.

This concludes the main characteristics of an Exclusive Rights license to a beat. If you still have questions, please let me know at adamackbeatz@gmail.com and I will be happy to assist you.
