LICENSE CONDITIONS – This license agreement does not need to be signed by the customers and automatically become legally valid and active with purchase. The customer automatically agrees to all terms and conditions that are listed in this document and enters this agreement with purchase. In case of possible changes in any of the listed points, or should one point become invalid or adjusted, all other points in the terms and conditions stay unaffected and are still valid. Previously sold licenses and granted rights stay unaffected by future changes to the terms and conditions. 6 on the Beat has the legal right, but never the duty, to re-buy exclusive rights from the current exclusive rights license holder, if the exclusive rights license holder agrees to it and wants to re-sell his exclusive rights back to the licensor. The license owner has the full responsibility to read the terms and conditions after the purchase, in order to avoid any misunderstandings. This company’s head office is located in Miami, FL. For any point listed in this written agreement, any restrictions thereof and the general legal relationship, Florida Law is applicable in any case. If music contains sampled material, the sample-clearing of itself needs to be done by the customer never by the producer (6 on the Beat). The customers understand that they are responsible for clearing all samples that they choose to use and that 6 on the Beat cannot and will not be held liable for the misuse of any sampled material that the customer uses. The customer understands and accepts that he only paid for the production work of the producer. 6 on the Beat does not claim to own any rights on any sampled material. Under no circumstances is a customer allowed to re-sell the music itself, nor transfer the rights to the composition in any form to a third party, except for what is listed in the applicable license descriptions. Exclusive Rights license owners may split rights, transfer rights or share rights to the composition in use of their song(s), by setting up an individual written agreement which needs 6 on the Beat’s approval at his sole discretion in signed form. All orders are final and cannot be changed/adjusted/refunded afterward, without 6 on the Beat’s approval. No matter if exclusive rights or any other licenses are sold to a piece of music, 6 on the Beat will always be allowed to use that piece of music for own promotional uses, without limitation, worldwide. Therefore music sold exclusively may stay on the webpage or any websites and marketplaces they were offered, if the licensor decides to. Download and purchase options to exclusively sold music will be removed and will be marked as sold and become unavailable for any form of future licensing, except for non-exclusive license upgrading as defined in BASIC LICENSE for active non-exclusive license owners. Customers may edit the length of the purchased music, and make general adjustments (use of effects, change of volumes/levels, etc.), as long as they own a license to the piece of music and do not change the structure of the music itself, so that the music becomes unrecognizable. After the delivery of the musical composition, 6 on the Beat will be unbound of any further responsibilities and legal obligations to the customer and legally freed of any further duties. Musical Compositions/Beats/Soundtracks by 6 on the Beat may not be uploaded on any marketplace or distributed in any form without his permission. Anyone found to be abusing and violating these terms and conditions or any other aspect concerning 6 on the Beat’s productions will likely face a lawsuit and be held responsible for copyright infringement.
REFUND POLICY (NO REFUND) – All music is sold as is. The customer assumes the responsibility for the purchase, and no refunds will be issued.

CREDIT AGREEMENT – Credit must always be given to 6 on the Beat in written form. By making a purchase of any kind, the customer declares that he will give credit to the producer where possible (song or video descriptions, cd cover/booklet, youtube video description, file-names, mixtapes, albums, singles, remixes, social network pages such as Facebook, music sites such as SoundCloud, Reverbnation, etc.). Further, the license holder is requested but not obliged to include 6 on the Beat’s website (6onthebeat.com) in the credits. Proper credit examples are listed below:
– Beat prod. by O. Horn
– Music prod. by O. Horn
– Music: 6 on the Beat (6onthebeat.com)
– Beat: 6 on the Beat (6onthebeat.com)
Any displayed or downloadable files such as mp3s, wave files, etc. must include “prod. by 6 on the Beat” within the file name.
BASIC LICENSE (non-exclusive) – Purchasing a basic license grants the customer limited commercial and legislative rights to the purchased music for one single commercial (profitable) use (e.g. album, EP, single or mix-tape) on any physical or digital medium such as CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, LPs, Cassettes, USB-Sticks or digital sales (e.g. iTunes, google-play, etc.) with a circulation of up to 4,000 (four thousand) sales units, all royalty-free. If this point of sale is reached and/or further sales are desired, further rights with a new sales cap need to be obtained with a new license or license upgrade (if the music has not yet been sold with exclusive rights and is still available. 6 on the Beat reserves the right to re-lease or re-sell the same music exclusively. Once the customer has reached the allowed number of sales and any other limits concerning his license agreement, no more sales can be made after the sales cap is reached. The license holder agrees to remove his song from any marketplaces, stores, etc. to avoid the song from being sold after the sales cap is reached. A leasing license (non-exclusive licenses) is delivered as a mixed, tag-free WAV-file, MP3-file and this license agreement, stating the rights of use and details of the purchase. Music can be leased to more than one person at the same time until exclusive rights are sold. Once a piece of music has been sold with exclusive rights, it will no longer be available for any kind of leasing and licensing, except for upgrading previously sold ˜Basic License” to a “Pro License”. Previous non-exclusive rights that have been sold before the music is sold exclusively are not affected and stay valid until the applicable sales cap has been reached. Leasing music does not make the license owner the sole owner of the music, nor does it give the license owner any administrative rights to the music concerning legal actions against other license owners or anyone using any of the compositions offered by 6 on the Beat. The license owner is not allowed to get profitable radio-, video- or television-airplay or to perform the song on commercial/profitable shows with a Basic license. In order to use the music for these purposes, the license owner must own exclusive rights to the music or “Pro License”. The licensor forbids re-sale or any other distribution of 6 on the Beat’s compositions, either as they exist or any modification thereof. The license owner cannot sell, lease, remix, re-arrange or remove any melodies or instruments to another person or third party (record label, another artist, another producer etc.). The license owner understands that 6 on the Beat maintains 100% copyright and ownership of the original instrumental composition and musical structure. The license owner cannot use any compositions as background element in tv, film, DVDs and computer games without obtaining written consent and a separate license agreement. The license owner must give credit to 6 on the Beat on all productions (see Credit Agreement).
EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS – The purchase of exclusive rights grants the license owner full artistic and commercial rights to the purchased music. There is no sales cap related to exclusive rights. An exclusive rights purchase comes as a mixed tag-free WAV-file and a mixed tag-free MP3-file along with this license agreement stating the rights of use and details of purchase. The license owner has the right to request all separate wav files of the musical composition (also known as tracked outs). 6 on the Beat has the duty to deliver the wav files according to the license owner’s request. Once the music has been sold with exclusive rights, it will no longer be available for any kind of future sale/licensing. Previous non-exclusive rights being sold before the music 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 therefore possible that a piece of music has been leased several times before exclusive rights are sold. Once exclusive rights are sold, the music will be marked as ‘sold’ and any possible download and licensing option will be removed. Upon request, sold music may be removed from any website and marketing space where it has been offered for sale by 6 on the Beat, if 6 on the Beat agrees to. This excludes demonstrative videos (youtube, etc.) or demonstrative audio material used in trailers or as background music. The licensor forbids re-sale or other distribution of the producer’s composition, either as they exist or any modifications thereof for use in any competitive product, nor can the license owner transfer his rights to the composition to a third party if it’s not a full song with the artist’s own vocals. The license owner is allowed to sell his song over the composition without any sales limitation or sales cap worldwide, in any profitable form, and/or transfer the rights to his song over the music to another party such as record labels, another production company and another artist, but never the rights to the composition itself for a standalone composition product. The license owner understands that 6 on the Beat agrees 50% publishing (excluding sampled material) of the original composition and that the license owner buys exclusive sales rights and rights of use to the music but not the intellectual property itself. This entitles the producer (6 on the Beat) to maintain the administrative and legislative rights to the composition, in order to be able to ensure non-exclusive license owners administrative guidance and license-warranties. The license owner can use the purchased music as background element in tv, film and DVDs and computer games without obtaining written consent and/or another license agreement. The license owner must give credit to 6 on the Beat on all productions (see Credit Agreement).
