TERMS & CONDITIONS

FREE DOWNLOADS – Free downloads of any beat produced by ‘TheDopeSociety.com (Giuseppe di Apollo / Giuseppe D’ Liuzzo )’ do not include any artistic, commercial, profitable or legal rights to the beat. Those versions are only for non-profitable use, meaning only for demonstration tracks. You are allowed to upload tracks from Soundclick.com/ GiuseppeDiApollo (recorded over free downloaded beats) on internet pages like Bandcamp, Reverbnation, Soundcloud, Facebook, Soundclick or Youtube, etc. When being uploaded or presented (for demonstration use only!), credit ALWAYS has to be given in a written form to ‘TheDopeSociety.com (Giuseppe di Apollo / Giuseppe D’ Liuzzo )’ (example: Beat by Giuseppe di Apollo – TheDopeSociety.com) (e.g. in the song description or song title). You are allowed to put the track on a free mixtape if it is for promotional use only and strictly for non- profitable purpose. If you want to put your song on an album, or manufacture physical copies, or sell your music in any form, you need to purchase a leasing license or higher license which is appropriate for your needs. The meaning of free downloads is to do a song for yourself, to do first pre- recordings and to see if the song works out well and 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 DVD, no CD, no TV, no radio-streams or airplay allowed! No monetization of videos or any form of audio allowed. Furthermore it is not allowed to make any changes to the beat or remove any of the used tags or blend out parts of the beat (beat- drops). Copying, distributing, uploading or ripping any audio material (e.g. beat, tag, sounds, instruments, drums, etc.) in any form other than allowed in this agreement is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated at any time!

All payments are to be paid or are paid upfront before delivery of the product.

In case of a money- refund by any of the parties, the issued contract becomes invalid. Payments that are in any form held, refunded, cancelled or incorrect, by any of the parties, result that the issued contract(s)/ license agreement(s) and all of the granted rights therein become invalid and reversed.

 

(8.) – PUBLIC PERFORMANCES

(Shows/Videos/Streams/ Radio-and TV-airplay)

Public performances are ‘live shows’, ‘live video streams’, ‘videos’, ‘audio streams’, ‘radio airplay’, tv airplay’ and ‘film music’ either as just music (standalone) or music in a movie, tv- or video-commercial, spot, etc. Non-profitable live performances or public performances (non profitable live shows, non profitable video streams, non-profitable audio streams) are allowed for any license type, without limitation in amount of performances. Profitable performances are only allowed with 50k premium leasing rights, and/or exclusive rights. See appropriate/ specific license description and terms. The only license allowing unlimited public performances of any kind, is exclusive rights. TV – and radio-airplay or streams are only allowed for professional leasing rights and/or exclusive rights. Profitable live shows or monetized videos are allowed for any license higher than standard leasing rights (see restrictions in points 1-6). All profitable public performances as well as allowed sales units, if applicable for license type, are royalty- free, this means licensee keeps 100% earnings/profits made.

 

(9.) – YOUTUBE VIDEOS (Content ID)

The licensor maintains the unlimited, worldwide rights to register his beat-compositions with a content-ID program/institution such as AdRev, etc. (if you have questions about content ID or AdRev, please google ‘Content ID’ and ‘AdRev’) and be the sole administrator of youtube rights using such a content ID program. This is necessary and entitles licensor to maintain the administrative and legislative rights to the beat-composition, in order to be able to ensure non-exclusive and exclusive license owners administrative guidance and license-warranties. The main purpose is to stop people from stealing beats and using/monetizing them in videos without owning a license. What AdRev does is scan youtube videos for audio material produced by Giuseppe di Apollo (Giuseppe Dangelo Liuzzo) The Dope Society and automatically sends a copyright claim, which blocks your videos from monetization temporarily. Don’t worry! This claim is more a notification and will NOT harm your channel or video, nor does it force you to take down the video(s), the only thing it does, is disable the monetization option temporarily. Your video will keep playing without any other limitations. Anyone using free downloads and tagged demo downloads in videos on youtube can ignore this copyright notification as it doesn’t stop your video from playing and monetization wouldn’t be allowed for non-licensed beats at all (if monetization is desired, you can purchase a premium leasing rights license or higher if beat is still available).a premium leasing rights license or higher if beat is still available).

IMPORTANT!– All license owners need to send us their link(s) to their video(s) and details of purchase so we can put their video(s) on the whitelist and remove the copyright claim within 24 hours – please send details/links to: [email protected] // including your full name, link to video(s) and/or email address used for purchase.

This is the exact message you might receive: Due to a copyright claim, you are no longer monetizing the following YouTube video. It is still playable on YouTube, but the copyright owner could choose to show ads on it. It may therefore be possible that you receive a copyright claim on youtube videos, even if you own a license. As listed above, please follow the instructions written in bold! Using a content ID program is the only way we can assure that only people with an appropriate beat-license are monetizing their videos rightfully and legally on youtube. It also protects your videos from receiving fraudulent claims by third parties that claim to own the administrative rights to the beats. If you have any questions concerning this issue, feel free to contact us anytime via email and we will respond in 24 business hours.

Products, files and documents are delivered electronically via an automatic system if purchased via our instant delivery store, and also manually within a delivery time frame of 24 business hours if purchased any other way.
