Leasing rights for my beat

DJ Master O

I am trying to explain to my buyer what: Use for 1 commercial/profitable use - means. What exactly this means to you?? I told him "Leasing rights allow you to use the beat (or song) for ONE commercial recording or broadcast. This recording can then be distributed for up to 2,000 copies. Selling more than 2,000 copies means you must acquire a new lease or exclusive rights." Basically he could promote commercially on the radio one time right???

Another thing if he decides to promote my beat commercially on the radio and if people request what happens then??? Does he have to buy my lease again in other to keep playing on the radio if people request it??? Need help thanks..

i would just say a lease means you can sell the beat to other people. when he owns exclusive rights, you cant sell to anyone else....

RIGHT.... you lease the beat then he can do whatever he wants with it, and you can still sell it again... EXCLUSIVE rights means one person period. I haven't heard about the 2000 thing..
