Audio NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are digital assets that represent ownership of a unique audio recording or performance. Having a contract associated with an audio NFT is important because it outlines the rights and obligations of the parties involved, including the buyer, the seller, and any other stakeholders. The contract below was carefully crafted with a legal professional for the purchase of BlockJane Recordings audio NFTs listed on opensea.io. All other audio nft’s or mp3’s for purchase are subject to the use provided by the specific platform e.g. Moda Dao, Spotify, Apple Music etc.
Included In the first BlockJane Records “Everything OK” release are 11 original melodic stems composed on vintage synths and original vocals that were used in “Everything OK” as well as 2 bonus stems along with the original artwork and song. A track made up of classic house sounds and vocals inspired by the need for comfort during uncomfortable times.
Each stem composition in this pack can be used and manipulated, then released commercially (royalty-free guarantee + contract included below)
Terms and Conditions of BlockJane Records NFT Use
When you purchase an NFT originating from BlockJane and upon confirming the NFT on the blockchain, you are provided with a non-exclusive, transferrable, license agreement between you, a single user, and BlockJane during the time you own the NFT and subject to your compliance with these Terms and Conditions. As part of this license you are granted a royalty free, non-exclusive license, on a global basis for the full copyright protection period (unless earlier terminated) in the component loops, samples, sound effects, and/or patches, or any variations thereof, both singularly and as a collection for commercial and non-commercial use exclusively in a derivative work created by you. Only the original purchaser of the NFT has the right to embody and utilize the component parts of the NFT within their work (otherwise known as a “derivative work”) and you have the right to continue to exploit the work you created after you sell the NFT.
Any copyright in and to the contents of the NFT remain the property of BlockJane or its Licensor (the “Copyright Holder”) and are licensed to you only for use in the creation of a live or recorded performance that includes the licensed samples as part of a derivative musical or visual work created by you, the licensed end user. All rights of BlockJane Records and/or the Copyright Holder are reserved. For avoidance of doubt, copying, duplication, lending or re-selling of the component parts of the NFT, in whole or part, are strictly prohibited. No moral rights are waived by BlockJane.
You are not the owner of the copyright of the NFT from BlockJane. However, your use of the NFT and its component parts is permitted without first obtaining a separate license from the Copyright Holder provided that you modify the samples or component parts within a musical context and do not present them as isolated works. Similarly, any NFT which is a rhythm loop sample must also be combined with other types of samples or sounds to effectively form a new composition or derivative work, in a manner that is clear and distinct from the isolated rhythm loop itself. You shall not challenge the Copyright Holder’s copyright ownership in the NFT nor any part thereof.
This license expressly forbids the copying, lending, duplicating, sublicensing, trading, resale, rental, loan, gift or transfer of any part of the NFT or a copy thereof, in any format or via any medium, to another person or company, except in accordance with a permitted use contained herein in a derivative work created by you. You may not electronically transfer the NFT or place the NFT in a file-sharing or service bureau operation or a computer/sampler network other than to re-sell the NFT via the same NFT Platform from which you purchased it originally. You may not use the NFT, nor any part thereof, in any way that associates the NFT with hatred, racial or gender intolerance cruelty or otherwise infringes on the rights of others.
The purchased NFT may not be included, whether modified or as part of a derivative work, in any musical library or sample library product.
If you wish to obtain any rights not expressly granted as part of these terms, please contact BlockJane Records. Any grant of rights above and beyond these Terms and Conditions must be in writing and signed by you and the authorized signatory for BlockJane Records.
Any unlicensed usage will be prosecuted to the maximum extent possible by law.
If you remix the component parts of the NFT to create a new sound recording, you must retain the original title of the Work but may add a designation after the title similar to: Name of Original Track (“User” Remix). Any metadata or other credit for the musical composition (the song) in such a remix must state that the sole songwriter is Sara Scruton.
BlockJane Records may terminate your rights in a purchased NFT upon written notice to you if it believes you have breached any of these Terms and Conditions. Upon such termination you must return, destroy, remove, delete, and cease all use of the identified purchased NFT. No refunds shall be granted for such terminations.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold BlockJane Records harmless from and against any claims, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, arising out of your breach of these Terms and Conditions and/or misuse, deliberate or otherwise of the NFT, or any part thereof, and/or violation of the rights purchased pursuant to this Agreement.
