4. Privacy Policy

Legacy values your privacy. Please review the Privacy Policy governing the Site: https://www.easysong.com/about/privacy-policy.aspx. Legacy reserves the right to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, at our sole discretion.

5. No Unlawful or Unauthorized Uses

Subject to your compliance with these Terms of Use, Legacy grants you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, revocable, non-assignable and non-transferable right and license to use the Site in order to utilize the Services. You agree and warrant that you will not use the Site or the Services for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these Terms of Use. You further agree that you will not use the Site in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden or impair the Site, or interfere with any other party’s use of the Site.

You must not alter or remove or attempt to alter or remove, any trademark, copyright or other proprietary or legal notices contained in, or appearing on, the Site or on any content appearing on the Site.

6. Cover Song Licensing Services

The Site allows you to purchase a service whereby Legacy acquires on your behalf, prior to your distribution of phonorecords [as such term is defined in the United States Copyright Act (the Copyright Act)], mechanical licenses for the reproduction of musical compositions. You tell us the format you want to use (e.g. CD, digital download or ringtone) for the mechanical licenses and the number of copies (100, 1000, etc.) to be distributed. Legacy calculates the royalty that must be paid to the music publisher(s) under the Copyright Act for use of the musical composition(s), based on the statutory mechanical royalty rate in effect at the time of your request. You pay those royalties to Legacy, along with Legacy’s licensing service fee, and Legacy obtains the license(s) from the appropriate publisher(s) or copyright holder(s) and pays the publisher(s) or copyright holder(s) the royalties on your behalf.

The maximum number of copies Legacy will license per song per album at the statutory mechanical royalty rate is 2,500 units. If you wish to license more than the maximum number of copies, Legacy will attempt to obtain the license, but will charge an additional $0.01 for each copy for our services (minimum: $25). This charge is in addition to the royalties owed and will be paid to Legacy, not the copyright holder. In addition, if you wish to license more than 2,500 physical units, you agree to deliver a pressing report to Legacy on stationery of the manufacturer, indicating the actual quantities produced, before licensing will proceed.

The cover song licensing service does not allow you to obtain licenses for samples, audio recordings (masters), synchronization rights (audiovisual), grand rights (theatrical) or print rights . If you want to obtain any of those rights, you must contact the rights holder(s) directly. In addition, the cover song licensing service does not allow you to obtain mechanical licenses for songs that do not comply with the compulsory mechanical licensing provisions of the Copyright Act.

For each song you submit to us for licensing, you agree that:
  1. You will not change the lyrics of the song.
  2. You will not change the fundamental melody of the song (general rearrangement is allowed, however).
  3. You will not request a song that has never been previously recorded and commercially released.
  4. You will not release any recording of any song for any purpose other than personal private listening by the end user.
  5. You will not sell copies of any recording of any licensed song outside of the United States without additional permission from the rights holder(s).

Under the Copyright Act, a mechanical license must be obtained from the copyright owner of the applicable musical composition prior to the manufacture or distribution of digital or physical copies. Under certain circumstances, even if the copyright owner cannot be found, or refuses a license, a so-called “compulsory license” can be obtained. Importantly, a compulsory license may only be obtained by giving a “Notice of Intention to Obtain a Compulsory License” to the copyright owner or their agent, before or within 30 days of making, and before distributing, any phonorecords (including digital copies).

Therefore, we require that you submit your request to Legacy at least 45 days in advance of your distribution of any copies. If that time limit has passed, Legacy will still try to help you and make every effort to secure a retroactive license on your behalf, but in that instance a license cannot be guaranteed. If a license cannot be secured and the time to secure a “compulsory license” has expired, any accrued royalties will be returned to you. In all events, you will be responsible for any claim by a publisher or copyright holder and you agree to indemnify Legacy against any such claim in accordance with section 10 below.

7. Custom Licensing Services

For songs not available for licensing through the cover song licensing service, Legacy offers Custom Assistance and Custom Handling services. For an additional charge, Legacy will provide consultation and assistance to submit your licensing request directly to the copyright proprietor(s). Custom licensing can be challenging because, under the Copyright Act, the copyright owners maintain total control of their works. This means they can set any fee, take all the time they need, and reject the licensing request outright. For this reason, it is important to manage your expectations.

Many factors affect the response, including budget, use and even the current workload of the copyright holder’s processing department. For this reason, Legacy does not guarantee licensure in whole or in part for any custom request, and we also do not guarantee timing, or even that you will receive a response from the copyright holder. All custom licensing fees paid are final and are not eligible for refunds. This includes the upfront fees paid for Custom Assistance and Custom Handling, and any additional fees paid at signing for Custom Handling.

When requesting Legacy’s licensing services, you agree and warrant that you will provide accurate information, including song title(s), songwriter(s), publisher(s), track length and any other information requested, for the song(s) that you wish to license. Legacy is not responsible if licenses cannot be obtained, if the incorrect license is obtained, or if you pay insufficient publisher royalties as the result of inaccurate information in license requests.

You agree to limit your use of the songs you license to the format(s) and number of copies that you request Legacy to license on your behalf. Because you are asking Legacy to acquire a specific number and type of licenses, we must emphasize that any use of the song(s) in any format(s) or numbers of copies which are not requested and licensed is a violation of these Terms of Use and may also violate the rights of the applicable publisher or copyright holder.

For example, if you request mechanical licenses for 100 digital downloads that you intend to offer for download or sale, you are not authorized to reproduce the musical compositions in physical or ringtone format without further licensing. In addition, you are not authorized to produce or sell more than 100 digital downloads. The 101st digital download requires an additional license. It is your responsibility to ensure that additional mechanical licenses are requested BEFORE you offer the 101st digital download for download or sale. If you get to that point, contact us, and we will set you up for the additional units needed.

8. Refund Policy

You agree to read and accept our Refund Policy each time before making a purchase. Our refund policy is available online here: https://www.easysong.com/about/refund-policy.aspx

9. Violations of Terms of Use

If you violate these Terms of Use or any other rights of Legacy or any third parties, including, without limitation, infringing the copyrights of Legacy’s licensors, or any other third party, or if you manufacture, reproduce or distribute any recording(s) containing any musical composition(s) licensed by us for you beyond the number or type of mechanical licenses requested, Legacy and its licensors reserve the right to pursue any and all legal and equitable remedies against you, including without limitation, terminating your user account. In such event, you also agree to indemnify Legacy against any claim by such licensors or other third party in accordance with section 10 below.

10. Indemnification

You will defend and indemnify Legacy, its officers, directors, employees, subsidiaries, affiliates and licensors against any and all losses, expenses, costs or damages (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and litigation expenses) incurred by any or all of them as a result of your breach of these Terms of Use or your unauthorized use of the Site or any musical compositions licensed by Legacy on your behalf.

ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THE SITE MUST BE NOTIFIED TO LEGACY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH CASES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT SUCH LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN YOU AND LEGACY AND ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND LEGACY, AND THAT LEGACY’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

NOTHING IN THESE TERMS OF USE LIMITS OR EXCLUDES THE LIABILITY OF LEGACY, ITS SUBSIDIARIES, SUCCESSORS, ASSIGNS, OR THEIR RESPECTIVE EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS AND/OR SHAREHOLDERS FOR: (I) ANY DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY CAUSED BY ITS OR THEIR NEGLIGENCE, (II) ANY FORM OF FRAUD OR DECEIT, (III) ANY DAMAGES CAUSED WILLFULLY OR BY GROSS NEGLIGENCE, OR (IV) ANY FORM OF LIABILITY WHICH CANNOT BE LIMITED OR EXCLUDED BY LAW.

13. NO PROFESSIONAL ADVICE

Legacy does not provide such services and the availability of background information here does not create any professional service relationship.

The failure by Legacy to take any action with respect to a breach by you of these Terms of Use does not waive any right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breach. Legacy may, from time to time, amend these Terms of Use and your use of the Site following any such amendment shall constitute your further agreement to follow and be bound by the amended Terms of Use.

22. Severability

If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be modified so that it is valid and/or enforceable to the greatest extent possible under applicable law. All remaining provisions shall be unaffected and enforceable.

23. Entire Agreement

These Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy, and, if applicable, the Licensing Services Agreement between you and Legacy, collectively set forth the entire understanding between you and Legacy with respect to your use of the Site. It is understood that in the event of any conflict between these Terms of Use and the Licensing Services Agreement, these Terms of Use shall control.

This Copyright Registration Addendum (this Registration Addendum) governs the terms on which Legacy will provide you with certain music copyright registration services as described on the Site (the "Registration Services").

Please read these terms carefully prior to using or registering for the Registration Services. BY USING THE REGISTRATION SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS REGISTRATION ADDENDUM AS WELL AS TO THE LEGACY TERMS OF USE. If you do not agree to all such terms, then you may not use the Registration Services. If, and to the extent, there is any conflict between the provisions of this Registration Addendum and the provisions of the Terms of Use, the terms of this Registration Addendum will control.

If you are registering for or adding the Registration Services on behalf of one or more other writers, a group, or a company or other entity, then you represent and warrant to Legacy that you are authorized to do so on their behalf and to bind them to this Registration Addendum. The terms “you” and “your” include all such persons and entities.

1. Acknowledgements

Legacy is an independent company in the business, among other things, of registering music with the U.S. Copyright Office. LEGACY IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH THE U.S. COPYRIGHT OFFICE.

Nothing in the Registration Services should be construed as offering legal advice or representation. LEGACY DOES NOT OFFER LEGAL ADVICE OR LEGAL SERVICES OF ANY KIND, NOR PROTECTION AGAINST CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT.

The information on the Site regarding the Registration Services should not be used as a substitute for the advice of a qualified attorney. The Registration Services are not intended to create an attorney-client relationship and no attorney-client relationship will be created with Legacy by using the Registration Services. If you need legal advice for your specific copyright problem, you should consult a licensed and qualified attorney in your area.

THE REGISTRATION SERVICES DO NOT INCLUDE REGISTRATION WITH ANY ORGANIZATION REGARDING LICENSING OR COLLECTION OF ROYALTIES. It is the music owner's responsibility to register his/her work(s) for purposes of licensing and royalties with the appropriate agencies, including, for example, ASCAP, BMI and SoundExchange.

Since Legacy does not listen to music files that are submitted for registration purposes, but only checks that they are submitted in the proper format, the physical integrity or usability of files submitted is not verified nor warranted by Legacy.

2. Fees

You agree to pay all Copyright Office filing fees and other fees as specified in your account registration or as otherwise authorized under your account. When you sign up for the Registration Services, you will be providing Legacy with credit card information and authorization to charge any fees you may incur in connection with your use of the Registration Services directly to your credit card account. If, at any time, Legacy is unable to charge or otherwise recover the relevant fees from the credit card provided, Legacy may suspend the Registration Services.

3. Changes

Legacy reserves the right at any time to modify this Registration Addendum and to impose new or additional terms or conditions on your use of the Registration Services. Legacy will inform you of any proposed modifications (e.g., by email or through your account page on the Site) and you may terminate this Registration Addendum upon written notice if you do not wish to accept them. Otherwise, such modifications and additional terms and conditions will be deemed accepted and incorporated into this Registration Addendum.

4. Warranties and Indemnification

You represent and warrant as follows:

  1. (a) You are at least 18 years of age.
  2. (b) All registration information and other information you submit to Legacy is and will remain truthful and accurate. You will notify Legacy promptly if any information changes or needs to be updated. If Legacy is put on notice with respect to a discrepancy or any inaccuracy with respect to information provided in any copyright registration, Legacy will have the right to suspend its services until the discrepancy or inaccuracy is resolved to our reasonable satisfaction, without limitation of our indemnity rights as stated below.
  3. (c) You will not interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Site or the Registration Services or any transaction conducted on Site and will not take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on the Site’s infrastructure.
  4. (d) You will at all times defend, indemnify and hold harmless Legacy and its affiliates and their respective members, employees, affiliates, representatives, agents, licensees and distributors (collectively, the Other Indemnitees) from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, losses, costs and expenses, including actual out-of-pocket legal expenses and reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of (i) any breach or alleged breach by you of any warranty, representation or agreement made herein, (ii) any act, error or omission committed by you or any person or entity acting on your behalf or under your direction or control, and (iii) any use or exploitation of your music. You will reimburse Legacy and the Other Indemnitees, on demand, for any payment made at any time after the date hereof in respect of any liability or claim for which Legacy or the Other Indemnitees are entitled to be indemnified, or Legacy may elect to deduct any such payments from all sums otherwise due you hereunder.

5. Limitation of Liability / Disclaimer of Warranty

IN NO EVENT WILL LEGACY BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST DATA ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF THE REGISTRATION SERVICES, EVEN IF LEGACY IS AWARE OR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY CONTAINED HEREIN, LEGACY'S LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID, IF ANY, BY YOU TO LEGACY FOR THE REGISTRATION SERVICES.

THE REGISTRATION SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS-IS," “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS AND LEGACY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF ANY KIND REGARDING THE REGISTRATION SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. LEGACY CANNOT GUARANTEE AND DOES NOT PROMISE ANY SPECIFIC RESULTS FROM USE OF THE REGISTRATION SERVICES. IF, AND TO THE EXTENT, THESE DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS ARE LIMITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THEY WILL OTHERWISE APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF SUCH LAW.

6. Miscellaneous

Legacy may assign or delegate this Registration Addendum or any or all of its rights and obligations hereunder to one or more third parties without notice to you.

This Registration Addendum is entered into in the State of Minnesota and will be construed in accordance with the laws of said state applicable to contracts to be wholly performed therein, without reference to any conflict of laws principles. The state and federal courts located in Hennepin County, Minnesota will have sole and exclusive jurisdiction over any controversies arising out of, or in connection with this Registration Addendum; any action or other proceeding which involves such a controversy will be brought in those courts.

(a) To register the Compositions with the relevant performance rights organization(s) (e.g., ASCAP and/or BMI) (PROs) and other licensing agencies (e.g., The Harry Fox Agency) for which Legacy may offer such registration services (the Third Party Registrations). Third Party Registrations will be made according to the then current rules, terms and conditions of the applicable PRO or licensing organization, and may require the payment of fees as specified by Legacy. If Legacy makes additional PROs and licensing agency registrations available, you may request registration with such additional PROs and agencies at any time. If you are already registered with such PROs or other third parties, you will need to sign such letters of direction as Legacy provide to enable us to administer your account with such PROs or other third parties on your behalf during the Term and Exploitation Period. You acknowledge that Legacy will not be able to start collecting publishing income on your behalf unless and until the necessary Third-Party Registrations and/or letters of direction are accurately completed.
  2. (b) To perform and license others to perform the Compositions publicly or privately, for profit or otherwise, by any means or media whatsoever, whether now known or conceived and developed during the Term, including, without limitation, public or private live performances, radio broadcast, television, Internet and mobile telecom.
  3. (c) At your request or with your permission in each instance, to do or authorize others to do the following: (i) substitute new titles for any of the Compositions; (ii) make any arrangement, adaptation, translation, dramatization or transposition of any of the Compositions, in whole or in part, and in connection with any other musical, literary or dramatic material;(iii) add new lyrics to the music of any Composition or new music to the lyrics of any Composition, and (iv) prepare other derivative works based on the Compositions, regardless of any so-called "moral rights".
  4. (d) To make or cause to be made, and to license others to make phonograph records, master recordings, digital downloads, streams, podcasts, ringtones, soundtracks, pressings and any other mechanical, electrical or other reproductions of the Compositions, in whole or in part, including without limitation, the right to grant licenses to third parties authorizing so-called "sampling" and/or interpolation of the Compositions, and to use, manufacture, advertise, license, sell, or otherwise exploit such reproductions for any and all purposes, including, without limitation, private and public performances, radio, television, motion pictures, phonograph records, and any and all other means and devices, whether now known or conceived or developed during the Term, including any synchronization rights.
  5. (e) To print, publish, sell and distribute, and to authorize others to print, publish, sell and distribute, copies of the Compositions, in all forms, including, without limitation, sheet music, orchestrations, arrangements and other editions of the Compositions, separately or together with other musical compositions, including, without limitation, in song folios, compilations, song books, mixed folios, personality folios and lyric magazines, with or without music.
  6. (f) To sublicense any or all of the rights granted herein to any persons or entities.
  7. (g) To exercise and exploit during the Term and Exploitation Period exclusively, any and all other rights now existing or existing during the Term with regard to the Writer’s Interest in all Compositions under and by virtue of any common law or statutory laws or provisions, including without limitation, copyright laws, including so-called “grand rights” and small performance rights, including synchronization rights.
  8. (h) To administer and collect all monies derived from the exploitation of the Compositions during the Term and Exploitation Period throughout the Territory. After the Term and Exploitation Period, Legacy will continue to have the right to collect all income payable in respect of exploitations of the Compositions that was earned during or before the Term and/or Exploitation Period for a period of one year after the Exploitation Period. You understand that it is your responsibility to notify the relevant PROs or other third party licensing agencies or licensors at the end of the Exploitation Period, and if you fail to do so, Legacy may continue to receive income on your behalf. If Legacy receives monies that were earned after the applicable Exploitation Period for a particular Composition from a PRO or other third party licensing agency, licensor or other entity due to their acts or omissions or your failure to notify the relevant third party of the expiration of the Term, you acknowledge that our receipt thereof will not be a violation of this Publishing Addendum and that Legacy have the right to accept such monies on your behalf. In such event, our Administration Fees will apply to such monies, and Legacy will remit all Net Income to you as and when Legacy would otherwise have accounted to you if this Publishing Addendum and Term were still in effect.
  9. (i) To use the names (real and professional), biographical information and likenesses of the writers of the Compositions in connection with the marketing and/or promotion of the Compositions, the Site and the Publishing Services.
  10. (j) The rights granted to Legacy under this Publishing Addendum include the exclusive right to grant, administer and collect under so-called “micro” sync licenses (as that term is understood in the U.S. music publishing industry). “Micro” syncs include, by way of example and not limitation, blanket licenses for use of Compositions (or portions thereof, including lyrics or metadata) in videos, “art tracks,” and other audio-visual content on social media platforms, within user-generated videos, slideshows, presentations and similar multimedia projects, in software apps, and on video sites and services such as YouTube, Vevo, and Vimeo.
  11. (k) With regard to YouTube, Legacy’s rights include the right to identify, “claim” and “monetize” videos containing the Compositions by allowing the display of advertising, although you will be able to review those videos by logging into your account on the Site and it will be your responsibility to review those videos and confirm that they do, in fact, contain the Compositions. If you are a YouTube “partner” and provide Legacy with accurate details identifying your YouTube channel, then subject to the rest of these terms, Legacy will “whitelist” and not monetize your channel.

2. Licenses

You or your designee will be the contracting party in any licenses entered into in connection with the Publishing Services. You acknowledge that the license term of individual licenses may extend beyond the Term and/or Exploitation Period, including in perpetuity, and you authorize Legacy to enter into such licenses on your behalf.

3. Term / Termination

The term of this Publishing Addendum will begin on the date you register for the Publishing Services and will continue for a period of one year (the Term) unless earlier terminated by Legacy as stated below. The Term will automatically renew for consecutive 3-month periods (each a Renewal Term) unless you terminate the Term prior to the end of the then-current period by sending an email with a request to terminate along with your email address and user ID (a Cancellation Notice). Regardless of when you send a Cancellation Notice, termination will not be effective until the end of the period of the Term in which the notice is received.

Notwithstanding any termination of the Term, the rights granted and the Publishing Services provided under this Addendum will continue with respect to any particular Composition until the end of the Exploitation Period for such Composition. The Exploitation Period for a Composition will begin on the date you submit such Composition to Legacy and will continue until the later of (i) the end of the Term or (ii) 12 months after the date you submit the Composition to Legacy, unless earlier terminated by Legacy as stated below. For example, if you submit a Composition on January 1st and the Term ends on February 1st of that year, the Exploitation Period for that Composition will continue until December 31st of that year.

Legacy will continue to have the right to collect all income payable with respect to any Composition that was earned during the Exploitation Period for a period of one year after the date of expiration of the Exploitation Period for such Composition. Legacy will continue to account for and pay to you your share of all such income.

Legacy may terminate the Term and/or the Exploitation Period for any or all of the Compositions at any time upon written notice, for any reason or for no reason. Termination of your Account or of the Legacy service as a whole will also constitute termination of this Publishing Addendum.

After the Term and Exploitation Period, Legacy will continue to have the right, but not the obligation, to collect all income payable in respect of exploitations of the Compositions that was earned during or before the Term and/or Exploitation Period, and Legacy will continue to account to you your share of all such income.

If, and to the extent that, any fraudulent activities are determined to be caused by your or your affiliates’ actions or omissions, any costs incurred by Legacy (including legal fees and costs) in connection therewith may, in addition to its other remedies, be deducted by Legacy from any monies otherwise payable to you hereunder. Certain of Legacy’s licensees may also have policies related to fraud and suspected fraudulent activities and you agree that such policies will be binding on you hereunder.
