LICENSING EXPLAINED

LEASE LICENSE OR EXCLUSIVE PURCHASE

The difference between a Lease and Exclusive Purchase besides the price is the exclusivity. A lease is non-exclusive, meaning it can be temporarily sold to multiple users. An exclusive purchase gives only you rights. There are no prior leases* on exclusive beats, and they're removed from the website. Both licenses give you rights to sell your product. The terms of the license vary from deal to deal, but in the end they serve the same purpose of granting the buyer (licensee) certain rights of use.

A lease license is referring to the purchase of temporary rights to distribute and record over a piece of music known as a beat or instrumental. Leasing a beat (or instrumental) gives the artist the right to use that piece of music in compliance with the rights and regulations stated in the lease agreement. Typically, after leasing a beat you can use it for a variety of outlets. For example, online streaming platforms such as Spotify, iTunes, etc. Leasing a beat (or instrumental) may also be used in mixtapes, albums, live performance and radio play.

An Exclusive Purchase provides the user with unlimited use, unlimited revenue, unlimited remixes and ownership of the music. If your goal as an artist is longevity, land major label deals, get signed, monetize your music and/or perform live an exclusive license may be best for you. Exclusive beats are ideal for album releases since you will be the only artist in the world with that music. Also, it is easier for record labels to market, sign and distribute artists who create songs exclusively as original music. Exclusivity gives complete freedom to do whatever you like with the beat.

A lease license or exclusive purchase is needed in order to use our copyrighted music. This ensures that the producer, Capital P on the Tracks (licensor), gets properly compensated. All of our music has been copyrighted at the U.S. Copyright Office. The legal penalties for copyright infringement are: Infringer pays the actual dollar amount of damages and profits. The law penalizes infrigement up to $150,000 for each work infringed upon.

* An exclusive license may be purchased after it has been leased, as long as the purchaser understands that the beat has been leased prior to the exclusive license purchase, and the prior leased beat is being used until their lease expires. This situation usually happens if the song does blow up, you always have the option to buy exclusive rights to the beat at any time.
