Using “FREE” Beats for your music

Apr 30, 2019 by DreamUnionBeats - 0 Comments

YouTube and other SocialMedias are full of „FREE“-Beats. But are they free? Or is it even against the law to use it? This thread tells you what you need to know.

Free Beats sound great. Really big producers leave their beats on YouTube for Free. But „FREE“ does not mean for free!

It means you can download them on a direct link of the producer for privat use.

But as soon as you produce songs with them and distribute them, you´re breaking copyright-terms, which can become very expensive.

Which ends up happening in the producer finds the song with his beat on the internet and wants to get a lot of money or he will activate a lawyor.

I mean not every producer is like this, but you have to think about them like businesses. If you go into a store and steal something and use it for your advantage they will call the police. It´s the same for beats. . . They are digital products.

 

Another thing which speaks against using free beats are the tags on them. Especially for such cases in where beats get stolen producers try to protect their work with „Tags“.

But what are tags? Well, they are advertising voices which often speak the producers name or something else and you will find them more or less often on the beat.

As soon as you are buying a license you get the „untagged“ audio.

And think about it, it is way more professional for your fan base when your instrumentals don´t get interrupted by some annoying voices 😉

To close it I wanna say that you always should get licences for your beats. You don´t have to get headache cause you have stolen them or anything…

What does it mean “to lease” a beat?

Apr 30, 2019 by DreamUnionBeats - 0 Comments

In this short thread I will explain you what it means to lease beats online? You will learn about licences internetproducers offer and what you need to know.

First a little bit of history.

In the past decades the whole process of getting instrumentals was not easy for Artists. First they had to find professional producers who are willing to produce them in exchange for paying a lot of money.

So they had to send their self-produced music to them and had to wait if they were hooked or not.

 

Nowadays it has become much easier for Artists to find beats.

Platforms like YouTube offer thousands of professional beats just within minutes. You as an artist can rap on them while watching the video and if you want them for your songs the links send you directly to the beat store of the beatmaker.

 

There producers offer special licencing options for their beats and it ´s all separated into Non-Exclusive & Exclusive Licenses.

A Non-Exclusive-Licence is a kind of contract between you and the producer of the beat. He is the owner of all copyright and if you buy a N-E-licence he gives you the rights to distribute the beat for your music.

But under some terms for example how many copies you can sell with the song, which Audio-Format you receive and so on. If you wanna know more you can have a look on my pricing table:

An Exclusive licence is different because there you receive all copyright and the producer is no longer allowed to sell this beat in the future. In order to this value it is also the most expensive option.
