Dancetech & 7161 Copyright Policy
Our Copyright Policy is simple - Dancetech was setup by musicians to provide space for original artists, bands, producers, bedroom labels and all other types of music makers to host their music. All music you add to dancetech is assumed to be created by yourself.
Dancetech has created a sister music-section site - www.7161.com
- This "sister" site was created to accomodate the dancetech music-section when it got too big to remain as an in-site section of dancetech; so when you add your music to dancetech, you are adding your music to dancetech AND to 7161 because both sites share the same admin, use the same database and reside on the same servers - You can edit your admin/tracks/mixes in either site admin using the same login details.
We do not allow users to host released songs by well know artists or bands on dancetech/7161 unless the user has permission to do so from the copyright holder/s or the user is the copyright holder. Any such songs found on the site by admin or reported to admin will be removed and your account may be cancelled if you add such material.
When you upload your original tracks to dancetech/7161 you agree to indemnify dancetech against any and all copyright claims made by any 3rd parties in relation to your added music, and you warrant that all samples, loops and the composition itself is original. This is 100% standard, and all recording contracts nowadays contain such an indemnity clause so it's something you need to get used to if you plan a career in music.
In order for dancetech/7161 to display your added music & provide this music for streaming, download by visitors and for Podcasting, you agree to grant us a non-exclusive right to do this when you upload your music.
This right is granted by you simply to allow us to host your music for you, and unlike other hosting sites this agreement does NOT grant us any rights to re-distribute or re-licence your music via partners or other 3rd parties. This agreement terminates should you leave the site.
In return we take no copyright whatsoever. All rights to your music remain yours in every way. You are free to do whatever you like with your music.
If you decide to leave the site, unlike other hosting sites we do NOT retain your details or music files or any non-exclusive rights to your material in any way - The people who run dancetech/7161 are also musicians and we too do not like site's which hang on to artists' material when they leave.
