General Contract Info and Definitions
Contracts can be intimidating, and the legal jargon used can be confusing at best. Consider this section the "lay Man's version" or the "in the spirit of" section. It gives basic simple definitions while the direct contracts page gives more detailed information with legal terminology. Also, you'll note that our non-exclusive contracts are much more lenient than most, and in fact, they match the "premium" leases that most "big producers" offer. It is not in our interest to hamper you with paperwork and excess fees. We include premium rights from the gate. We also operate on a "profit" basis, not a "number of copies" basis.
$2,500 revenue from ANY means. We do not care how you use the track to make money. CDs? Awesome. Digital downloads? Go for it. And even better, what some charge "premium" rights for, Movies! Put our beats in movies, soundtracks for games, commercials, whatever! As long as the credits say "Produced by End All Productions" and you either made less than $2,500 total, or contact us for anything above $2,500, its all gravy. No need to ask for permission. Its included.
So are performance rights. In fact, we don't care how many shows you use it at, or even how much money you make at the shows you perform at. Do your thing! We care about sales from CDs, Downloads, and synchronization (thats movies, commercials, games, ect).
The track is being leased to you non-exclusively. You might hear someone else use it after you purchased the lease.
All future sales of the instrumental cease. You now own exclusive USAGE of the track. We never sell the actual ownership or rights, but you own the complete and exclusive right to use the track as you see fit. You still must credit End All Productions in all print and online usage, but you no longer have the revenue cap of $2,500. Instead, your revenue cap before royalties is $25,000 in revenue directly related to the track in question. After that point, royalties are to be paid based off of the national "producer point" average at the time of passing the threshold. This is generally 1-3 points. If you're not sure what the point system is, a quick google search can explain it for you, or email us directly and we would be happy to explain it.
All previous leases may finish their original agreement, but after that point must stop selling the instrumental in question. They had their chance to buy it. You did. Its yours to use alone after they fulfill their original contract.
