Production Credit Conditions

*NOTE* Refer to License Agreement if you have purchased a License!

Credit must always be given to ‘Aidano Beats (AIDANOBEATS.COM)’ in written form, for example ‘Beat by Aidano Beats (AIDANOBEATS.COM)’. By making a purchase of any kind or downloading demo beats, tagged beats, etc. or any similar content, the customer declares that he will give credit to the producer where possible in a written form (cd cover/booklet, song or video descriptions, YouTube videos, file-names, mixtapes, albums, singles, remixes, social network pages such as Facebook, music sites such as Soundcloud, Reverbnation, etc.). Proper credit is given as follows:

Example credits:
‘Beat Prod. By Aidano Beats (AIDANOBEATS.COM)’ or

‘Beat by Aidano Beats (AIDANOBEATS.COM)’ Music © 2017 All Rights Reserved.

Used under license. Any displayed or downloadable files such as mp3s, wav files, etc. must include ‘(Prod. Aidano Beats)’ within the file name.
If beat-composition(s) and/or licensed material contain(s) any pre-recorded and mixed/embedded hook(s) (also known as chorus) by an artist (singer/rapper), the name of the artist is listed and can be found in the filename(s) or purchased items and on our website. If there is doubt about an artist’s name, you, the licensee or person entering into this agreement bound to the terms & conditions, has the responsibility to contact us for this information.
In case a beat-composition contains such (a) hook(s), all credit as needed for ‘AIDANOBEATS.COM (Aidano Beats)’ is also needed to be given in written form as follows (‘Hook by Artist name’ or ‘featuring Artist name’). All hooks come royalty free, as AIDANOBEATS.COM (Aidano Beats) owns full commercial/profitable rights to them. Beats with hooks being displayed as ‘instrumentals with hooks’ are treated just like all other beat-compositions in regards of licensing and registrations in the terms & conditions.

All artists that may be appearing on beats and performing hooks have been paid upfront for their work as ‘work for hire’ and are legally qualified to enter into this agreement without further agreement(s). No further license documentation by ‘AIDANOBEATS.COM (Aidano Beats)’ is required for proof of legal correctness.

Content ID

YOUTUBE & SOUNDCLOUD (Content ID) – Aidano Beats maintains the unlimited, worldwide rights to register his beat-compositions with a content-ID program/institution such as AdRev, RouteNote, Beat Stars, etc. (if you have questions about content ID, AdRev and RouteNote please google ‘Content ID’, ‘AdRev’, ‘RouteNote’) and be the sole administrator of YouTube rights using such a content ID program.

This is necessary and entitles licensor to maintain the administrative and legislative rights to the beat-composition, in order to be able to ensure non-exclusive and exclusive license owners administrative guidance and license-warranties. The main purpose is to stop people from stealing beats and using/monetizing them in videos without owning a license. What AdRev does is scan YouTube videos for audio material produced by Aidano Beats and automatically sends a copyright claim, which blocks your videos from monetization temporarily. Don’t worry! This claim is more a notification and will NOT harm your channel or video, nor does it force you to take down the video(s), the only thing it does, is disable the monetization option temporarily. Your video will keep playing without any other limitations.

Anyone using free downloads and tagged demo downloads in videos on YouTube can ignore this copyright notification as it doesn’t stop your video from playing and monetization wouldn’t be allowed for non-licensed beats at all (if monetization is desired, you can purchase a exclusive license if the beat is still available). NOTE – All license owners need to send us their link(s) to their video(s) and details of purchase so we can put their video(s) on the white-list and remove the copyright claim within 48 hours – please Contact Us and send details/links including your full name, link to video(s) and/or email address used for purchase.

This is the exact message you might receive: Due to a copyright claim, you are no longer monetizing the following YouTube video. It is still playable on YouTube, but the copyright owner could choose to show ads on it. It may therefore be possible that you receive a copyright claim on YouTube videos, even if you own a license. As listed above, please follow the instructions written in bold! Using a content ID program is the only way we can assure that only people with an appropriate beat-license are monetizing their videos rightfully and legally on YouTube. It also protects your videos from receiving fraudulent claims by third parties that claim to own the administrative rights to the beats. If you have any questions concerning this issue, feel free to contact us anytime via email and we will respond in 24/48 business hours.
