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.
Are Exclusive Beats Taken Off the Website
Yes! After the order is complete, the purchased exclusive beat will be instantly taken off the website.
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 5 years). This is still a form of renewal. If you fail to renew a license (and are still pushing your song), we will be able to find out using advanced software that searches the web & digital distribution platforms for our beats.
