Garage Radio Submission Agreement|
What You Should Know Before Submitting Music To GR
Why Should You Read This?
Because of developments in the music industry and constantly changing copyright laws Garage Radio aka GR has outlined some simple terms regarding your music submissions. Unfortunately there are those out there who would like to take away you power to control the distribution of the material you’ve worked so hard to create. This little agreement insures that all parties involved are treated fairly and have been provided ample notice of Garage Radio’s intentions. GR also does not accept reproductions of material released by established acts … NO COVERS, NO MATTER HOW INVENTIVE! If your material does not conform to content laws (ex. it's pornographic, or uses extreme language), Garage Radio reserves the right to include a content warning or exclude it from the play list altogether. The agreement also grants Garage Radio full permission to use this music on a non-exclusive basis in any way we see fit (as part of a site advertising campaign or marketing promotion, for example). We will not sell your music without your consent or specific agreement, represent you without your knowledge or plagerize you in any way, as it goes against our very principle. Take note that at all times you retain full ownership of your music, Garage Radio reserves no right, other than the ones outlined below, to any royalties for your material. You are free to cancel your agreement with Garage RadioPrint Agreement
and have your music deleted from our system at any time, provided you request it specifically. Garage Radio aka GR also reserves all rights regarding protection under national copyright laws. If you are not sure what these terms mean to you, please consult an attorney.
