Licensing Info

Free downloads of any beat produced by ‘6Silky’ do not include any artistic or legislative rights to the beat. Those versions are only for non-profitable use, meaning only for demonstrational tracks. You are allowed to upload tracks (recorded over free downloaded beats) on Internet pages like myspace, Soundclick, Facebook, Soundcloud or Youtube, etc. When being uploaded or presented (for demonstrational use only!), credit always has to be given in a written form to 6Silky (e.g. in the song description) and (The producer who produced the beat). You are NOT allowed to put the track on a mixtape or album, even if it is for promotional use only. For this purpose you need to purchase at least a lease. The meaning of free downloads is to do a song for yourself, to do first pre-recordings & to see if the song works out well & is worth, to make investments in one of the license types. It is not allowed to make any kind of profit with free download versions. No video-, no TV-, no radio- airplay allowed! Furthermore it is not allowed to make any changes to the beat or remove any of the used tags. Copying or ripping any audio material (e.g. beat, tag, sounds, instruments, drums, etc.) is prohibited & will not be tolerated at any time! Persons infringing this rule may face legal prosecution.

NON-EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS

Also known as leasing rights, purchasing a lease grants the customer limited artistic & legislative rights to the corresponding beat(s) for one single profitable/commercial use on any medium (e.g. album, EP or mixtape) with a circulation of up to 2.500 sales units. If this point of sale is reached & further sales are desired, (if the beat has not yet been sold with exclusive rights & is still available) the leasee must purchase the beat exclusively from the 6Silky.com website,no additional lease agreement can be given to a leasee that has reached the 2,500 sales unit cap and therefore the leasee must purchase exclusive rights to the beat if they wish to continue selling the beat. If the beat is no longer available for leasing, no more sales can be made after the sales cap is reached. A lease comes as a mixed tag-free MP3-file & a contract/invoice, stating the rights of use. A beat can be leased to more than one person at the same time until exclusive rights are sold to the beat. Once a beat has been sold with exclusive rights, it will no longer be available for any kind of leasing. Previous leasing rights that have been sold before are not affected & stay valid until the sales cap has been reached. Leasing a beat does not make the customer the sole owner of the beat. The licensee is not allowed to get profitable radio-, video- or television-airplay or to perform the song on commercial/profitable shows with a leasing license. For this purpose licensee must own exclusive rights to the beat. The licensor expressly forbids re-sale or any other distribution of the producer’s compositions, either as they exist or any modification thereof. You (the customer) cannot sell, loan, rent, lease, assign, remix, re-arrange, remove any melodies, instruments, drum programming or transfer all or any of the products sold or the corresponding rights to another person (example – Record Label, another production company, another producer, another artist), or for use in any competitive product. The licensee understands that the licensor maintains 100% copyright & ownership of the original instrumental composition. Licensee cannot use any beat compositions as background element in TV, Film & DVD / computer game projects without obtaining written consent & a separate license agreement. Licensee must include on all productions & products the producer’s name. Licensee agrees to display the producer’s name in all physical media or within web presentation of a portion (e.g. pre-listening) or sum of the original instrumental composition that is being licensed in this agreement.

EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS

The purchase of exclusive rights grants the customer full creative & commercial rights to the purchased beat. There is no sales cap related to exclusive rights. An exclusive rights purchase comes as a mixed tag-free WAV-file, the corresponding separate track-lines & contract/invoice stating the rights of use. Once a beat has been sold with exclusive rights, it will no longer be available for any kind of leasing/sale. Previous leasing rights being sold before the beat has been sold exclusively are not affected hereby & stay valid until the sales cap has been reached. It is therefore possible that a beat has been leased several times before exclusive rights are sold. The beat will be marked as ‘sold’ & any possible download & licensing option will be removed. Upon request, a sold beat will be removed from any website & marketing space where it has been offered by the licensor. The licensor expressly forbids re-sale or other distribution of the producer’s composition, either as they exist or any modifications thereof.
