Frequently Ask Questions FAQ
 
1. What is the difference between Non-Exclusive Beats & Exclusive Beats?

Non-Exclusive beats (Licenses) purchased on certifiedbeatmakers.com are "Leased" to customers/recording artists to create a "New Work" (A Track). Producers retain the right to sell and re-sell the same beats to as many new customers as they desire. Non-Exclusive beats are used for demo's, mixtapes etc.

 

Exclusive beats (Licenses) purchased on certifiedbeatmakers.com are a permission that grants the customer/recording artist the exclusive right to use the beat for a demo/mixtape, on an album or on the radio. Producers can sell exclusive licenses to only one customer.

 

 
2. How Does Leasing A Beat Work?

Generally, beats that are sold under a Non-Exclusive license are "leased" to the buyer. This means that the buyer can create a "new work" using the beat. The "new work" can ONLY be used on the internet (on sites such as Myspace.com, Soundclick.com, etc.) or on a demo/mixtape for promotional use. "Leasing" a beat DOES NOT grant the buyer permission to use that beat for a track on an album, or submit the "new work" to radio. What rights am I granted when I purchase a beat under an exclusive license ? Beats that are purchased under the terms of an exclusive license grant full exclusive rights to the buyer. This means the buyer will be the only person who is granted permission by the producer to use the beat for a song on their album. Beats that are purchased exclusively can also be used for "new works" that will be performed live or submitted to radio stations.

 
3. Are There Any Royalties Or Back End Payments?

The producer will get 50% of the writers credit for the completed song. You are required to give credit to the producer on your song releases "Produced by: "certifiedbeatmakers.com/producer". This usually means 50% of all statutory publishing and mechanical royalties will be paid to the producer of the beat.

 
4. Copyright And Royalty Licenses?

When you purchase an exclusive beat, you will remain the sole licensee of the beat. The creation and copyrights remain in the possession of the producer who created/sold the beat. For filling out and filing copyright registration forms please see: http://www.copyright.gov/forms/ . You should thoroughly read through the instructions before sending in the forms. For more information go to http://www.copyright.gov/

 
5. What Are The Methods Of Payments?

 

You can pay for your purchase at certifiedbeatmakers.com using PayPal, which is one the safest and easiest ways to send and receive payments. We also accept Visa, Discover, Mastercard and eChecks.
This site deals in United States Dollars (USD), for ALL transactions.

 

 
6. When I Buy A Beat, Can I Use The Song On My Album Or Perform It Live?

All Non-Exclusive beats have a limited-commerical use license, meaning you can use them as tracks for your demo or mixtape. "New works" can be performed live, as long as the producer receives 50% of the royalties earned from the live performances. Only beats that have been purchased under the terms of an exclusive license can be used for an album. Each exclusive license is good for ONE (1) commercial project. This means you can use the beat for one album release, but must buy an additional license if you plan to use the beat on a "Greatest Hits" or any Re-Release of any kind, up to and including a remix or remixes. However, you must give producer's credit for creating the beat used in the "new work" listed on single, mixtape or album release.

 
7. Vocal Tags?

The beat(s) will automatically play A (60) second clip, with our system vocal Tag. Once we have received your payment the vocal tag will be removed.
