Terms & Conditions
This is a licensing agreement to allow us to distribute your recordings to online retailers.
This licence is non-exclusive which means you can have direct deals with shops. You cannot use other distributors however as this creates a massive “claim/counter claim” mess.
You can take down your content whenever you like as long as the your invoices are paid.
Made a mistake or you know you have to change something in the near future? No problems. Releases can be changed at any time
This is a NON-exclusive and transferable licence for the copyrights in the recording you have chosen to distribute.
This is a NON-exclusive licence for your recording so you can work directly with individual shops (they must be excluded from the distribution list).
However, this is exclusive with regards to distribution companies or aggregators so you cannot distribute the same bundle (same bundle title or barcode) with any other distributor/aggregator as this will cause huge licensing conflicts.
As selected by you.
As selected by you.
Open end: From the date of agreement until either party chooses to take down the release.
This is where you take down releases from shops and you can do this without terminating your deal/account with iMusician. If you take a release down before 12 months, we reserve the right to charge a 10 EUR early takedown fee.
To take down a release, all outstanding invoices must be paid.
This is where you close your iMusician account which can be done at any time by writing (email is fine) as long as all outstanding invoices have been paid.
We reserve the right to refuse your release based on the quality of audio or questionable content. This includes things such as racist or politically sensitive lyrics or artwork.
Releases can be changed/updated even after delivery at the cost of 10 euros.
Cash credit is your income for sales and royalties which you can pay out at any time or use to buy other services. Promotion credit or “Promo-credit” can be used to discount your purchases from iMusician and cannot be paid out. Promo-credit never expires as long as you log-in to your account once a year, and only after you have been notified by email.
If you have doubts about your accounting, you have the right to audit iMusician with 30 days’ notice and by an authorised Swiss accountant pending agreement from iMusician, maximum once per year and at your expense.
iMusician reserves the right to freeze your account if we suspect fraudulent activity or during licensing disputes. Your account will be re-opened as soon as the situation has been resolved and it has been shown that there has been no wrongdoing by you. Furthermore, iMusician reserves the right to charge a penalty fee of up to 50 EURs per songs where fraudulent activity can be proven.
You grant the right to use all official artwork, product, video-clips, biography and likenesses free of charge in the course of exploitation.
Illegality or unenforceability of any one portion of the agreement will not affect the legality and enforceability of the entire agreement.
Any interpretation of this agreement shall be in accordance with Swiss Law and enforced in Zürich, Switzerland.
