By making a payment, the customer declares that he/she is fully aware of the terms & conditions & accepts & agrees to them. All terms & conditions are listed on dahtrump.com. In case of a change in any of the listed points or should one point become invalid, all other points stay unaffected & are still valid.

If a track contains sampled material, the sample-clearing needs to be done by the customer(s), not by D.A.H. Trump. The licensee understands that they are responsible for clearing all samples that they choose to use & the licensor cannot & will not be held liable for the misuse of any sampled material that the licensee uses in conjunction with the original track composition that is being licensed in this agreement. The licensee understands & accepts that he/she only paid for the production work of the producer. The licensor does not claim to have any rights on any sampled material.

Under no circumstances is a customer allowed to resell the track in any form. Rights that are given to a customer are not transferable. When an exclusive license to tracks are sold, D.A.H. Trump will always be allowed to use those tracks for his own promotional purposes. (Therefore, all tracks sold exclusively stay on the D.A.H. Trump’s webpages. Download & licensee options to that track will be removed & the track(s) will be marked as “sold.”)

After the delivery of the track(s), D.A.H. Trump will be unbound of any further responsibilities to the customer & legally freed of any further duties. Any track by D.A.H. Trump may not be uploaded on any website without his permission. D.A.H. Trump is not responsible for other sites claiming to sell “D.A.H. Trump” products. Anybody abusing or disrespecting the listed terms and conditions will likely face a law suit.

All tracks produced by D.A.H. Trump are copywritten by U.S. Law. Theft or re-creation may result in legal action.

Free downloads of any track produced by ‘D.A.H. Trump’ do not include any artistic or legislative rights to the track. Free downloads are only for non-profitable use (e.g. demonstration tracks, leisure listening, or non-profitable events). You are allowed to upload tracks (recorded over free downloaded tracks) on Internet pages (like Myspace, SoundClick, Facebook, Soundcloud or Youtube, etc.). When being uploaded or presented (for demonstration use only), credit always has to be given in a written form to ‘D.A.H. Trump (Derrick Hall)’ (e.g. on the title and song description). You are not allowed to put the track on a mixtape or album, even if it is for promotional use only. For this purpose you need to purchase at least a lease.

Free downloads are in place for you to make a song for yourself, complete your first pre-recordings & to see if the song is worth making an investment in one of the license types. Free downloads are not allowed to make any kind of profit (no video-, no TV-, no radio-airplay allowed)! Furthermore, it is not allowed to make any changes to the track(s) or remove the tags presented on the track(s). Copying or ripping any audio material (e.g. track, tag, sounds, instruments, drums, etc.) is prohibited & will not be tolerated at any time! The person disobeying this rule will likely face a law suit.

Free downloads from the Music Store are considered valid leases. By downloading tracks from the Music Store, you accept and follow the Leasing Rights terms & conditions.

Upon your purchase, you will receive a sound file of the untagged song. The song file can be delivered digitally or through the mail on a CD. Leasing rights allow you to use the track for ONE commercial recording or broadcast. This recording can then be distributed at your price for up to 2,500 copies. Selling more than 2,500 copies means you must acquire a new lease or exclusive rights.

You may use the track for non-profit promotional use or demos. You have full rights to record, alter, mix the track in any shape, way, or form (except reselling the track). You will receive a contract granting you non-exclusive rights to the tack.

In the event that someone buys exclusive rights to the track you have leased, your rights shall stand and the track is still yours to use. You may also acquire new leasing rights if you sell more than 2,500 copies since your contract predates exclusive sale. The seller will not receive a royalty from the sale of records or downloads. You must, however, give full credit to the seller, “D.A.H. Trump (Derrick Hall)”, on all commercial recordings. Upon purchasing leasing rights, the seller still owns the track(s) and the seller is able to resell the track(s) to any other party until exclusive rights have been purchased.

The purchase of exclusive rights grants the customer full artistic & commercial rights to the purchased beat. There is no sales cap related to exclusive rights. An exclusive rights purchase comes as a mixed, tag-free sound file, the corresponding separate track-lines & contract/invoice stating the rights of use.

Once a beat has been sold with exclusive rights, it will no longer be available for any kind of leasing/sale. Previous leasing rights being sold before the beat has been sold exclusively are not affected hereby & stay valid until the sales cap has been reached. It is therefore possible that a beat has been leased several times before exclusive rights are sold. The beat will be marked as ‘sold’ & any possible download & licensing option will be removed.Upon request, a sold beat will be removed from any website & marketing space where it has been offered by the licensor.

The licensor expressly forbids re-sale or other distribution of the producer’s composition, either as they exist or any modifications thereof. You (the customer) cannot sell, loan, rent, lease, assign, remix, re-arrange, remove any melodies, instruments, drum programming or transfer all or any of the products sold or their rights to another person (example – Record Label, another production company, another producer, another artist), or for use in any competitive product.

The licensee understands that the licensor maintains 100% copyright & ownership of the original instrumental composition. Licensee cannot use beat compositions as background element in TV, Film & DVD / computer game projects without obtaining written consent & or another license agreement. Licensee must include on all productions the producer’s name.

Licensee agrees to display the producer’s name in all physical media or within web presentation a portion or sum of the original instrumental composition that is being licensed in this agreement. Including but not limited to CD’s, CD covers, Cassette tapes, LP’s, Cards, etc. (Example credits: ‘Beat prod. by D.A.H. Trump (Derrick Hall)’ or ‘Music produced by D.A.H.
