Even though your release may contain one or more songs that are flagged with inappropriate content, we'll deliver your release to stores with only the songs that were approved.
Flagged songs have copyright issues (like cover songs or uncleared samples), and in that case you probably didn't send us proof of ownership. Send us the papers and we'll have your songs cleared and delivered to stores together with the rest of your release.
Below is a list of what these flags may represent and what you can provide us as proof of ownership.
In case of:
- "Free" or downloaded beats / speech / samples: please note these are not allowed in productions that will reach DSPs that generate revenue.
- Licensed/Purchased beats: Can only be used if it's an unique beat, sold only for you and used nowhere else. If a song with licensed beats was flagged, please let us have a copy of the purchase confirmation and the website where the purchase was made.
- Cover songs: We'll need the license purchase confirmation and the authorization of the original artist/composer/rightholder.
- Your song matched your own song: This happens when your song was once uploaded with another distributor or to open databases, like Youtube or Soundcloud. Please note that we can only upload content that is fully taken down from other distributors. If you are unable to provide enough proof of ownership over any content uploaded, your release will be restricted only to a few stores.
