- The general terms and conditions ensure a smooth process between Digital Room Records (licensees) and their artists (licensors), regardless of whether they are male or female. The words “song” or “demo” refer to the work that the licensor makes available to the licensee online.
- The licensor automatically transfers all the publishing rights and ancillary rights to the licensee each time his song is uploaded to the licensee and assures to the licensee that he has all the necessary rights. If the uploaded song is a cover version, the licensor also assures the licensee that he has already taken all the necessary steps, has all the necessary rights and has received approval from the author. The licensor must also send a copy of these documents to the licensee. If it turns out that the licensor infringes the copyright or the publishing right or the ancillary right or has not yet taken all necessary steps, the licensee is entitled to withdraw from the contract without prior notice. The licensee does not assert any claims for damages for this unless the licensee was harmed as a result. The licensee can decide for himself. If this leads to costs, these are to be borne by the licensor.
- The licensor must truthfully and completely fill out the license agreement sent by the licensee, sign it and return the signed document to the licensee. If the signed license agreement is not returned or is returned incompletely filled out, the licensee may publish the previously sent work and withhold the received sales until the licensor sends the licensee the fully completed and signed license agreement.
- The licensee provides the licensor with information about sales as soon as the licensee has this information. A deal of 50% is agreed for the sales received from the licensee.
- The licensee starts the publication process with the receipt of the song, creates a cover and takes care of advertising and marketing. Unless otherwise agreed, the resulting costs are borne by the licensor. The licensee takes all possible steps to obtain the best possible profit. The licensor has no influence on the entire process of publication.
- The licensor accepts that the licensee will not publish any songs that glorify violence or are inhuman or the like. In addition, it is up to the licensee to publish or not to publish the song.
- A takedown on the part of the licensor is generally permitted, but the licensor must apply to the licensee in writing in advance. A takedown is the taking down of a song from the download shops. If the licensor initiates a takedown, the licensee will charge a processing fee of EUR 10 per song. If costs for advertising etc. have arisen in the course of the entire publication process, these must also be borne by the licensor.
- The general terms and conditions can be changed or updated by the licensee at any time without giving reasons.
- The licensor automatically accepts the terms and conditions by uploading his song to the licensee.
