What is a copyright declaration form?
The copyright declaration form is a document that all artists must complete and submit to us with your every project that is pressed. This is an official document that allows you to explain who is the owner of the copyrights for recording and/or materials that you want to reproduce with Qrates. In short, we need to know if the recording and/or materials that you are using are covered and protected by any organization of BIEM (e.g. SACEM, GEMA, NSB, OSA).
The Supplier is also entitled at its absolute discretion to require further reasonable evidence, the reasonableness of which shall be determined exclusively by the Supplier, that the Customer possesses all the relevant rights and licenses regarding any copyright or any other intellectual property right of any third party.
We will ask you to fill in the copyright declaration form which can be downloaded here, and submit it with your audio/artwork .zip file once your Crowdfunding project has been successfully funded or you have completed the up-front payment for your Press and Sell or Press Only project.
