1.) CUSTOMER RIGHTS:

John Meisel guarantees that all licensing rights of the recordings, sample content, VSTIs and audio loops that have been used for the realization of his productions and that he offers as finished song(s) have been paid in full and belong to John Meisel. If you licence songs from me then you buy and obtain the master licensing rights for certain commercial purposes and usage worldwide (usually exclusively and without limitation).

2..) COPYRIGHTS and OBLIGATIONS for customers:

a) All songs that John Meisel is offering for licensing have been created and produced by John Meisel and are automatically protected by German copyright law and the collecting society GEMA. The copyrights for the instrumental music as well as for the vocal melodies and lyrics remain in possession of John Meisel. 

b) Each customer has to make sure that all releases, live performances, broadcastings and any usage are correctly credited and registered ("music, vocal melodies and lyrics by John Meisel") to make sure that the relevant collecting society (e.g.GEMA, SOCAM, ASCAP, BMI, SACEM, etc) in your country is correctly informed. The international "IP NAME NUMBER" of John Meisel is: 00281372565

3.) PAYMENT modalities for customers:

5.) SALVATORY CLAUSE:

If for any reason any part of this agreement should become invalid it has to be replaced with a text that is equivalent and definitely valid with regard to the intended meaning whereas the rest of the agreement shall remain unaffected and valid. 

6.) FINAL CLAUSE:

Unless John Meisel and a customer have agreed on something different these general terms and conditions are meant to define the rights and obligations between a customer and John Meisel.
