TERMS & CONDITIONS

(1) FREE DOWNLOADS – Free downloads of any beat produced by ‘The Industryz Standard Productions – ISBeats.com – Okay.E  / Ill Def Beats (Eric Ildefonso) – eZdOESiT Beats (Abimael Classen) ’ do not include any artistic or legislative rights to the beat. Free download 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 (depending on the beat chosen for use) to ‘The Industryz Standard Productions – ISBeats.com – Okay.E / Ill Def Beats (Eric Ildefonso) – eZdOESiT Beats (Abimael Classen)’ (e.g. in the song description).

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! The person disobeying this rule will likely face a law suit for copyright infringement. Please contact production@isbeats.com if you have any further questions concerning free downloads and/or the terms & conditions. 

Free Downloads are NOT FREE BEATS. You may only use the free downloads for non-commercial / non-profitable use. Use on albums, mixtapes, TV, and radio airplay, live performances or any other public use is strictly prohibited! The purpose of free downloads is to offer the possibility to record/write a song to them and have a “test-drive” to see if the final results are worth it investing in a license.

Lease and the .99 cent demo downloads are NOT THE SAME THING!

99¢ downloads are NOT leases. They are tagged throughout and DO NOT provide you with any rights to the track in any way. 99¢ downloads are being offered for fans and potential customers alike to have the opportunity to demo/audition the track for a future purchase. If you absolutely cannot listen to the track on my page, you are welcome to download the tagged instrumental for your listening purposes. This is NONPROFIT. You are prohibited from using these downloads for the following: MIXTAPES, VIDEOS (FOR WORLDSTAR HIP HOP, YOUTUBE, ETC), PERFORMANCES, RADIO PLAY, OR PROMOTION.

If reported individuals are using the 99¢ downloads for the above purposes, I will be forced to take the proper steps to have videos removed, mixtapes pulled from shelves, and radio plays halted.

The free downloads contain tags and these tags may not be removed under no circumstances. If you want to get the high-quality version without tags, you need to purchase at least a lease (starting from $20.00 USD – $65.00 USD). Anyone found to be abusing these privileges and the additional terms listed in ‘Terms & Conditions’ will most likely face a law suit for copyright infringement. . Please contact production@isbeats.com if you have any further questions concerning free downloads and/or the terms & conditions.

(2) LEASING RIGHTS – Also known as non-exclusive 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 2,000 sales units. If this point of sale is reached & further sales are desired, also further rights with a new sales cap need to be obtained (if the beat has not yet been sold with exclusive rights & is still available). If the beat is no more 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. Including but not limited to CD’s, CD covers, Cassette tapes, LP’s, Cards, etc (Example credits: ‘Beat prod. by The Industryz Standard Productions (Eric Ildefonso)’ or ‘Music produced by The Industryz Standard Productions (Eric Ildefonso)’ Music © 2012 All rights reserved.

(4) EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS – Exclusive rights pricing varies from track to track, it is not one flat fee. For exclusive rights pricing, you must inquire further by emailing me (production@isbeats.com) about the track(s) you are interested in. The purchase of exclusive rights grants the customer full artistic & 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 MP3 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.
