The Licensee is limited to a distribution of two thousand (2,000) copies of the Master Recording, which
can be distributed on any kind of recording media including, but not limited to: compact discs, DVDs,

to sell it non-exclusively and/or exclusively. The Licensee has neither the right nor authority to sell or
license the rights to the Instrumental whether in whole or part to any other party. In the event another

You will recieve an encoded MP3/WAV (depending on license type) file through email within 24 hours
after purchase... Leasing rights allow you to use the beat (or song) for ONE commercial recording or
broadcast. This recording can then be distributed at your price for up to 2,000 copies. Selling more than
2,000 copies means you must acquire a new lease or exclusive rights. You may also use the beat for
non-profit promotional use or demos. You have full rights to record, mix the beat/song in any shape,
way, or form (except reselling the beat or its track outs). You will receive a contract in the email along
with the instrumental granting you non-exclusive rights to the beat. In the event that someone buys
exclusive rights to the beat you have leased, your rights shall stand and the beat is still yours to use for the
remainder duration of your contract. You may also acquire new leasing rights if you sell more than 2,000
copies since your contract predates exclusive sale. The seller will not receive a royalty from the sale of
records or downloads. You must however give full credit to the seller (artist and/or producer name) on all
commercial recordings. Upon purchasing leasing rights, the seller still owns the beat(s) and the seller is
able to resell the beat(s) to any other party until exclusive rights have been purchased.
