HOW IT WORKS
As a member of our platform you can acquire part of future royalties from copyright exploitation of musical works. We described how it works below.
Please note that our main goal is to bring the Fans and their favourite artist closer not a monetary source or income generation platform. Your funding amount should be out of likeness and support to an artist. There is no guarantee that every musical work will turn out a commercial success thus, we consider donations to be risky and should be done with caution. You hereby acknowledge that you will be solely responsible for the risk arising from such donation.
Soundeon and copyright owners are required to sign agreement. Upon signing the agreement and consideration of these agreements Soundeon will be entitled to receive all or partial royalties from the musical work copyright exploitation. The royalty will be from the copyright owner and/or from the Collective Management Organisations (“CMO”) in different countries. Royalty will be within a defined territory or all over the world.
The details of each copyright package which included all revenue sources will be provided in the project description on our website and may vary from each project. Such copyright package allows Soundeon to receive royalties on all or a defined number of sources of the copyright work earnings such as radio and TV broadcasts, online streaming, live performances, or from collaborated commercials.
In addition to royalties to be collected from the CMOs, the signed agreement will also allow Soundeon to sell synchronization and merchandise right of the musical works.
Your support is like a micro-loan given to Soundeon for the purchase of copyright package in our name. Once royalty payments are received from the copyright package, we will then distribute to you and other fans in proportion to each fan’s size of support. You will be updated on the status of your support as a fan.
You are entitled to receive only the amount generated from the copyright package as repayment of the loan and interest. All pay-outs to you will be final and considered as repayment of the loan and interest. The principal amount will be returned first followed by payment of interest.
Please note that interest rates are not fixed. Interest solely depend on profits made by each project and equals to difference between the royalties’ income Soundeon receives from the copyright package and the amount of the support. There’s a possibility that a supporter may not earn any interest.
Should the pay-outs be less than the principal amount of the loan) and/or will earn no interest, you waive all rights to claims against Soundeon or third parties in regards to outstanding portion of the principal amount of the loan nor interest, provided that Soundeon has not violated the terms explained above.
For example, if you donated 100 euros and royalties from the Copyright Package are 130 euros, then 100 euros will be repaid to you as return of the principal amount of loan and 30 euros as interest. If the royalties from the Copyright Package will be 80 euros, then you will get no interest and only 80 euros will be repaid to you as return of the principal amount of loan. As stated earlier, Soundeon will not pay fixed amount of interest or guaranteed you will get any interest at all neither will the principal amount of loan be repaid if pay-out is less than the principal amount. Soundeon will not be be liable to repay the full principle amount.
All donations will have a fixed period of time and may vary for different projects. A support slated for 2 years will only receive pay-outs generated from the copyright package within that duration of 2 years. Disbursement of pay-outs may take longer than the slated number of years if royalty collection cycle by the copyright owner or CMOs are longer. In such cases, fans will be presented an option to extend the term of such support upon payment of additional fee.
Each project and package will have a varying minimum and maximum amount of donation set up by Soundeon. Fans may be limited to one donation per project. All donation will be final without refunds or withdrawal.
Being a supporter does not give the fan any license to reproduce, sell, copy, perform, alter, broadcast or manipulate the musical work and/or copyright package in any way.
By supporting on any project you acknowledge that you have no right to and will not demand any royalties directly from other copyright owners, CMOs, artists, authors or any third parties.
There is a limited time stipulated for accepting donations for each project, the term will be disclosed together with all other information on the respective project. In relation to each project, Soundeon may set a minimum aggregate amount for the donations made by Fans. If the total amount of the donations is less than the targeted amount, then we shall have the right, but not the obligated to null the project, reject and return all donations to fans or alternatively to extend timeframe of the project so more Fans will be able to make their donations.
