Welcome to License No.1, an exclusive music label company that provides a platform for customers to access and license never-before-licensed music tracks.
By accessing and using our website, customers are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions.
General Terms and Conditions
- Streaming Membership: Customers are required to sign up to access our music catalog. The membership grants access to the music streaming platform but does not include any licensing rights.
- Licensing: Customers can purchase exclusive buyout licenses for a period, as discussed with License No.1 upon purchase. If a customer is working for a client, they may transfer the license to them, but only for the specific use case and description of the license that was discussed upon purchase.
- Exclusivity and First use: Our music on License No.1 is exclusively presented and never licensed for any commercial use prior to customers’ purchases, except for the unlikely usage through the broadcast privilege. The broadcast privilege allows music to be used for TV station owned broadcast purposes without the consent of the artist. Customers acknowledge and agree that this clause is a part of the licensing agreement, and that License No.1 will not be held liable for any damages or losses resulting from the music being used before in the explained manner.
- Use of Music: Customers with a membership are allowed to download songs from the platform, test them in their video projects and deliver them to pitches for their clients. Any other use of the music is prohibited unless it is explicitly discussed and agreed upon with License No.1.
- Copyright: All music on the platform is protected by copyright laws and remains the property of the copyright owner. Any unauthorized use of the music may result in legal action.
- Limitation of Liability: The rule is first come first serve, if a customer did not reserve the song they want to license, it might get licensed by another customer in the meantime and will not be available anymore. License No.1 shall not be liable for any damages or losses arising from a song not being available for purchase.
- Governing Law and Jurisdiction: These terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Germany. Any disputes arising under or in connection with these terms and conditions shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the German courts.
- Music License Denial Policy for Ethical and Political Reasons: At License No.1, we reserve the right to not license our music for certain projects for political or ethical reasons. We believe in promoting positive values and maintaining a high ethical standard in the projects we support. If a customer’s project goes against our beliefs or values, we have the right to refuse the licensing of our music for that specific project. This decision will be made at our sole discretion, and we will not provide any explanations or justifications for the refusal. The customer acknowledges and agrees that this clause is a part of the licensing agreement, and that License No.1 will not be held liable for any damages or losses resulting from our refusal to license our music. By using our service and purchasing a license, the customer agrees to these terms and conditions.
- Indemnification: The customer shall indemnify and hold harmless License No.1, its officers, directors, employees, agents, and affiliates from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of or in any way connected with the customer’s use of the service or platform or any breach of these terms and conditions by the customer. This includes, but is not limited to, any claims for infringement of intellectual property rights, defamation, or violation of any applicable laws or regulations.
- Severability: If any provision of these terms and conditions is found to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will still be valid and enforceable.
- Intellectual Property: All intellectual property rights of the music belong to License No.1 and the music’s copyright owner. Customer can only use it for the purpose and time frame that was agreed upon.
- Changes to the Terms and Conditions: License No.1 reserves the right to update or change these terms and conditions at any time. Customers are responsible for regularly reviewing the terms and conditions to ensure they are aware of any changes. Continued use of the platform following any changes to the terms and conditions constitutes acceptance of those changes.
