To download any free beat, you must agree to the following terms and conditions (hereinafter referred to as “Agreement”):

1. Usage. **YOU ABSOLUTELY CANNOT USE THE INSTRUMENTAL COMPOSITION OF WHICH YOU ARE ATTEMPTING TO DOWNLOAD (hereinafter referred to as ‘the Beat’) FOR ANY FOR-PROFIT, COMMERCIAL, OR FINANCIALLY EXPLOITATIVE USE. AN APPROPRIATE LICENSE MUST BE PURCHASED OR PROPERLY OBTAINED IN ORDER TO EXPLOIT THE BEAT.** Acceptable use without obtaining a license (hereinafter referred to as ‘Free Use’) includes:

2. Showcasing of a recording on the Beat in a non-profit manner through an internet-based medium such as Myspace, Youtube, or a personal webpage.

3. Performing a live act on the Beat in a completely non-profit show.

4. Credit. You will provide proper credit for the creation of the Beat by writing ‘Produced by InsaneBeatz’ on all official documents or surfaces released with tangible copies of a recording on the Beat. If there are absolutely no means to provide written credit, vocal credit is required by actually recording the phrase ‘Produced by InsaneBeatz’ within the first 30 seconds of the Beat.

5. Liability. You hereby agree to indemnify, defend, and hold InsaneBeatz and all of our officers, directors, producers, owners, employees, agents, information providers, affiliates, and licensors (collectively, ‘InsaneBeatz’) harmless from and against any and all liability, losses, costs, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred in connection with any claim arising out of your use of the Beat, including but not limited to claims for defamation, violation of rights of publicity and/or privacy, copyright infringement, trademark infringement, and any claim or liability relating to the content, quality, or performance of materials in relation to the Beat.

6. Termination. InsaneBeatz reserves the right to terminate this Agreement at any time or terminate your rights to use or distribute the Beat at any time for any reason.

7. Legal Consequences. Any unauthorized use of the Beat, including unauthorized reselling, is considered a direct violation of the US Copyright Act of 1976 and is infringing upon the copyrights of the works of InsaneBeatz. Under the fullest extend of the law, InsaneBeatz reserves the right to take legal action or pursue financial compensation as a result of any breach or violation of this Agreement.

8. Modifications. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify this Agreement and any fees, at any time, effective upon the date we post a new Agreement on the beat’s free download page. Your continued use of the Beat constitutes your binding acceptance of this Agreement, including any changes or modifications that we may make.

YOUTUBE POLICY (CONTENT ID)

YOUTUBE POLICY (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 InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) 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-lease” or higher if beat is still available). IMPORTANT! – All license owners need to send me their link(s) to their video(s) and details of purchase so I can put their video(s) on the whitelist and remove the copyright claim within 24-48 hours – please send details/links to: info@insane-beatz.com including your order number, PayPal transaction ID, link to video(s) and 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 I 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 me anytime via email and I will respond in 24-48 business hours.

Besides these allowed sales units (physical or digital song sales) which count as 1 profitable project, the customer/licensee is allowed to use the beat(s) for public performances such as profitable live shows, or for monetized (profitable) videos (e.g. youtube). Once licensee has reached the limit of his allowed sales units , and/or further sales are desired, further rights with a new sales cap need to be obtained with a new license or license upgrade (if the beat has not yet been sold with exclusive rights and is still available). If the beat is no longer available and offered for any form of licensing and/or marked as sold, license owners of any type of non-exclusive rights may upgrade their current license to the highest available non-exclusive license such as a unlimited-lease, etc. If exclusive rights are no longer available, this does not affect license owners from being allowed to upgrade their non-exclusive license(s) to the highest form of non-exclusive license(s).

Beats that are being paid with payment plans will be put and marked ‘on hold’ on our website(s) and maketplaces, and may no longer be sold with exclusive rights, but may still be leased to multiple customers at the same time until the last payment step of the payment plan has been completed and the total amount of all items/services/products has been paid off. In case of a money-refund by any of the parties, the issued contract becomes invalid.

(9) GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS – The license agreement(s) do not need to be signed by the customer(s)/licensee(s) and automatically become legally valid and active with purchase (payment needs to be fully credited) and receipt of purchased items. As displayed on our website, customer automatically agrees to all registrations/content that are listed in the terms & conditions, and enters this agreement with purchase. By making a payment, the customer (licensee) declares that he is fully aware of the entire content listed in the terms and conditions, he fully accepts and agrees to them. Full Terms are listed on our official web-page www.insane-beatz.com/terms . In case of possible changes in any of the listed points, or should one point become invalid or adjusted, all other points in the the terms and conditions stay unaffected and are still valid. Previously sold licenses and granted rights stay unaffected by future changes to the terms and conditions. InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) has the legal right, but never the duty, to re-buy exclusive rights from the current exclusive rights license holder, for any amount of money, if the exclusive rights license holder agrees to it and wants to re-sell his exclusive rights back to the licensor. Interested parties, customers/clients, and licensees/license holders have the full responsibility to read the terms and conditions before making a purchase, and check for updates and/or changes in the terms and conditions on our website www.insane-beatz.com and www.insane-beatz.com/terms. InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) is not obliged for addressing any changes in the terms and conditions publicly at any time or in any form. This company’s legal domicile is Reinbek / Germany (Europe). For any point listed in this written agreement, any restrictions thereof and the general legal relationship, German Law is applicable in any case. If a beat contains sampled material, the sample-clearing of itself needs to be done by the customer(s)/licensee(s), never by InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner). The customer(s)/licensee(s) understand(s) that they are responsible for clearing all samples that they choose to use and that the licensor cannot and will not be held liable for the misuse of any sampled material that the licensee uses in conjunction with the original instrumental composition that is being licensed in this agreement. The licensee(s) understand(s) and accept(s) that he/they only paid for the production work of the producer. The licensor does not claim to have/own any rights on any sampled material. Under no circumstances is a customer/licensee allowed to re-sell the beat itself or any modifications thereof, nor transfer the rights to the beat composition in any form to a third party, except for what is listed in the applicable license descriptions (specifically point 1-4 and all other restrictions). Rights that are given to a customer are not transferable and non-refundable, if a customer/licensee features another or other artist(s), not listed as license holders in his license agreement by date of purchase, the issued rights to the beat-composition for use in licensee’s/customer’s song(s), featuring the concerned artist(s), are non-transferrable to other’s and non-splittable, for any kind of non-exclusive license(s) and remain bound strictly and solely to customer/licensee. If any additional license agreement(s), new license agreement(s), or changes to (a) current license agreement(s), or any concerned additions/adjustments, etc. are desired, license agreement(s) or contract(s) must include these terms and conditions and refer to the points/content, listed in these terms and conditions in order to blend in with all required and necessary information/registrations for any license type, warranties, and general terms and conditions. All orders are final and cannot be changed/altered/adjusted/refunded afterwards, without licensor’s approval. No matter if exclusive rights or any other licenses are sold to a beat, InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) will always be allowed to use that beat for own promotional uses, without limitation, worldwide and throughout the universe, without terminability. Therefore all beats sold exclusively may stay on the webpage or any websites and marketplaces they were offered, if licensor decides to. Download and license/purchase options to exclusively sold beats (exclusive rights) will be removed and the beat will be marked as ‘sold’ and become unavailable for any form of future licensing, except for non-exclusive license upgrading as defined in point (1) – point (4) for active non-exclusive license owners. Customer(s)/Licensee(s) may edit/alter the length of a beat, mixing/mastering of a beat (use of effects, change of volumes/levels, etc.), and general modifications, such as structure of instrumentation (seperate tracklines), as they see fit, as long as they own a license to the beat and do not change the sound-structure of the beat itself, so that the beat becomes unrecognizable (e.g. only using drums or only using less than 70% of the entire sounds/instruments included in the original beat composition). It is also not allowed to use any parts, melodies, instruments, sounds, drum arrangements, etc. of the original instrumental composition for use in other compositions in a competitive product (for example: remixes or sampled music/beats) without written consent and licensor’s approval. Remixes using any material of the original beat composition, or musical versions covering the original beat composition, played with live instruments (orchestra, band, etc.) are only allowed for premium-lease owners, unlimited-lease owners or for exclusive rights license owners, in both cases only with written consent or a verbal agreement and licensor’s approval. After the delivery of the beat, InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) will be unbound of any further responsibilities and legal obligations to the customer(s)/licensee(s), and legally freed of any further duties. Musical Composition(s)/Beat(s) by InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) may NOT be uploaded on any website, marketplace or distributed in any form without his permission and written consent. InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) is not responsible for any other website(s), marketplace(s), companie(s) or person(s) claiming to sell his beats and owning rights to them, nor is InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) legally responsible, nor liable/amenable for any damage, harm, financial losses or legal issues, caused by anybody abusing, disregarding or disrespecting the listed terms and conditions. Anyone found to be abusing and violating these terms and conditions or any other legal aspect concerning InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) music, content, or physical and/or intellectual property, will likely face a law suit and criminal punishment and be held responsible for copyright infringement.

(10) PRIVACY POLICY / DIGITAL DOWNLOAD POLICY / LIMITATION ON LIABILITY / TRADEMARKS AND COPYRIGHTS – We do not give out your information to anyone outside of our business and it is held privately on a secure server. We do not spam or overflow your inbox and will contact you between twice to six times a month with information regarding InsaneBeatz. By signing up to our mailing list, purchasing an item from us or becoming a member, you acknowledge you are on our mailing list as a recipient of our news and updates. Of course you may opt out and unsubscribe our newsletter at any time without need of sending us a message. All of our purchases and business activity is handled through PayPal and their secure servers or through national/international banks or institutions. InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) does not see, use, or know your financial information and we never ask for it. Your information remains private, period. We are not responsible for any damages incurred by malicious attacks on the internet. All items marked for sale on this website and marketplaces we offer our products are for digital download only. We do not deliver any physical goods to you for purchases. As a result, all sales on digital downloadable goods are final and we cannot offer a refund for something we cannot take back. In rare cases of duplicate purchases, or other rare circumstances, we will match what you paid with an item of equal or similar value. Every circumstance is different and will be dependent upon review on outcomes of the situation at hand. InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) and ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS AND CONTENT PROVIDERS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, ACTUAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR OTHER DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF REVENUE OR INCOME, PAIN AND SUFFERING, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, OR SIMILAR DAMAGES, EVEN IF InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Trademarks, service marks, logos, and copyrighted works appearing on this site are the property of InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) or the party that provided the trademarks, services marks, logos, and copyrighted work. InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) and any party that provided trademarks, service marks, logos, and copyrighted works retain all rights with respect to any of their respective trademarks, service marks, logos, and copyrighted works appearing in this site.

(11) YOUTUBE POLICY (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 InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner) 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-lease” or higher if beat is still available). IMPORTANT! – All license owners need to send me their link(s) to their video(s) and details of purchase so I can put their video(s) on the whitelist and remove the copyright claim within 24-48 hours – please send details/links to: info@insane-beatz.com including your order number, PayPal transaction ID, link to video(s) and 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 I 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 me anytime via email and I will respond in 24-48 business hours.

(12) DRUM KITS / SOUNDS – All products sold as ‚drum-kits’, ‚drum-packs’, ‚drum-sounds’, ‚one-shots’, ‚sounds’, ‚sound–packs’, ‚libraries’, ‚expansions’, ‚plug-ins’ etc. on our page are royalty free. This means that you buy the non-exclusive rights to use them freely in any sound/audio and/or audiovisual production without additional compensation to InsaneBeatz (Christoph Schreiner). You may not distribute, sell, assign, license or otherwise transfer any of the sounds or kits except as incorporated in a production. You may not distribute the sounds or loops without the production of music and/or vocal production added or provide instruction as to how to extract the sounds or loops from a production.

The demo sounds in the small sample package can be downloaded for free to check the quality and format of the files and can be used for any production purpose on any medium.
