This article applies to:

We recently hired one of the largest music law firms to draft up new default Non-Exclusive and Exclusive template agreements for you to use. Not only do these agreements protect our producer members, but it also makes sure our artist members are protected as well. To update your licenses to our latest contract templates, or reset back to these licenses if you manually made changes, please follow the instructions below.  

DISCLAIMER: BeatStars Inc., doesn’t legally represent producers in the sale of their production music and is only recommending license terms that are normal practice in music industry license transactions. We highly advise each music copyright owner to consult with their independent legal counsel to make sure they are licensing their music in the fashion they desire. BeatStars Inc. is not a law firm and not responsible for any undesired settings.

Step-by-step Guide:

  1. Log into your BeatStars account. 

  2. Visit your Licenses & Contracts section.

  3. Click the edit icon next to the license you wish to edit.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: We highly recommend that you have an attorney review the agreement as well.

  7. Click the "Save Changes" button when finished.

  8. On the License & Contracts page, if you wish to apply these changes to all tracks, please click the "Apply to all tracks" button next to the license you just modified.
