Understanding The Beat / Instrumental License Types

  • A lease is a Non-exclusive license where the beat owner creates a beat that can be used by more than one user who purchases the beat. None of the users in this regard can claim sole rights to the beat created. This license will also be determinant on various factors which include but not limited to: Time of lease(period), exploitation. This will be determined between the beat producer and user. 
  • An Exclusive license where the user pays to the beat owner an higher price than the non exclusive option to have the option to use the beat alone to the exclusion of other users. The beat producer shall retain all title, rights and interests contained in the beat created and earn continued royalties from the same accordingly.
