Need beats for your songs, but not sure what license to choose? This page has you covered, whether you’re brand new to it all, or you’re an experienced shopper. Browse our catalog of beats for sale here when you’re ready to get started.

What happens after a license expires?

Once a license expires, you are required to renew it in order to continue exploiting your song. Once expired, it’s as if you never purchased the license, to begin with. Simply re-purchase any license for that beat, and your license is renewed. It is up to you which license you choose to get for your renewal. For example, your original license could be a Basic license (which lasts 2 years), but once it expires, you can get a Deluxe+ license (which lasts forever). This is still a form of renewal.

What happens if someone gets exclusive rights to an instrumental that I licensed?

While the earning of exclusive rights is very rare, we have a protocol in place to protect all licensees of beats who’s exclusive rights are earned by others. Should this happen to you, you will retain all of your original rights. However, once your contract expires, you will not be able to renew the license. With this said, we will make you a replacement custom beat (which is automatically exclusive to you) at half price. The beat would be the same tempo, vibe, and key so that it fits perfectly with your original song. This is the fairest way we know to handle this situation. Again, the earning of exclusive rights is a very rare occurrence. 

Copyrights

Pink Fader® will retain all copyright ownership of the instrumentals for non-exclusive licenses. However, if you earn exclusive rights to beat or purchase a custom beat, you will retain copyright ownership of the Sound Recording (Master). For non-exclusive purchases, you should file a form PA to copyright your lyrics only. You cannot copyright the music as it’s a non-exclusive license.

Important notes

  • All audio-protection tags are removed upon the purchase of any license.
  • Basic, and Deluxe+ licenses are both non-exclusive. The Custom Beat license is exclusive.
  • Non-exclusive licenses are 100% royalty-free. We request for 25% of the publishing for exclusive licenses (and 3 points).
