§ 2 Copy

The licensee may lay down the downloaded file(s) for his own purposes to his own terminal devices (computer, smartphone, tablet-pc, own storage-cloud) any amount of times. The licensee also may create a backup on an own external device (USB stick, CD/DVD etc.). The licensee is not allowed to hand over the file(s) nor one or more copies of the file(s) to any third person, including the way of handing over his device(s), so that a third person has access to the files by using those device(s). It is especially not allowed to sell the file(s) commercially. If the licensee sells the file(s) privately, he must delete all copies and backups from all devices before handing over the file(s).

It is especially not allowed to use the file(s) as a base for own media or multimedia production such as using audio-, video- or readable samples, no matter if for own purposes of the licensee or for purposes of third parties (commercially or privately) and no matter how long or big the sample(s) is/are.

Please note §7.

§ 6 Copyright

Basically, the licensee is not allowed to write down content of the file(s) that is examined for musical context, such as melody, harmony, rhythm, lyrics, tempo, dynamics, arrangement, production etc. in order to hand it over to any third party or to publish it in any way, no matter if commercially or privately. This particularly applies to transcription of the content into musical notation as well as transcription of the lyrics, in whole or in part. Please note §7.

§ 7 Variations of this License Agreement or Parts of It

Deviations from this agreement can only be made by written and signed agreements between the owner of the rights and the licensee. For example, a deviation can be made if the licensee wants to create a professional remix of musical content or the licensee wants to professionally advertise one or more songs, graphics, videos and/or texts and lyrics provided within the downloaded file(s). In that case, the licensee must also take care of further rights that are necessary to get. In many cases, the GEMA or a partner is the right address for taking care of copyrights for songs. If you want to use third-party-productions of music, in many cases the GVL or a partner is the right address for taking care of copyrights for productions and recordings. If possible, the 420 Store team will support the licensee with pleasure.
