    Default Soundclick - Leasing & Exclusive: How does it work together

    Hi everybody,

    my first forum post

    I got a question about Soundclick, or in general the "Beat Selling System" you find on many producer sites.

    There's always a option to buy a leasing right, which gives you the right to sell 2000 copies or something. Some also got a premium leasing which allows the customer to sell some more copies.

    First of all: How do you check if the customers dont sell more copies. I mean they could sell CDs on the streets, right? Okay, its hard to sell 2000 Cds by yourself, but still... I think you got my point.

    And what happens if somebody wanna buy an exclusive license, but you already sold leasing rights? I mean theoreticly it cant be exclusive anymore if somebody else already used it. And you cant force customers who leased the beat to delete everything after somebody bought an exclusive.

    So how do these things work together, or do in the end nobody really care about that stuff?

    Hey Fuja,

    Firstly; Welcome to CrazyPellas

    How do you check if the customers dont sell more copies. I mean they could sell CDs on the streets, right? Okay, its hard to sell 2000 Cds by yourself, but still... I think you got my point.
    There's no way to check (that I know of)... but it's a legally binding contract so they did sell 2001 copies you have the right to sue them.

    And what happens if somebody wanna buy an exclusive license, but you already sold leasing rights? I mean theoreticly it cant be exclusive anymore if somebody else already used it. And you cant force customers who leased the beat to delete everything after somebody bought an exclusive.
    If you are selling a beat as lease and exclusive the purchaser knows that the beat may have been leased already, so it's something they "know".

    Also: You could add a clause to your Lease contract stating that when the beat is bought as exclusive they should terminate all use of it.

    So how do these things work together, or do in the end nobody really care about that stuff?
    People do care but it's became "acceptable risks".
