Any use of the song after termination of this Agreement is strictly prohibited and may result in legal action if song copyright is infringed upon. Any use of any song in a manner not expressly authorized by this Agreement or in breach of a term of this Agreement constitutes copyright infringement, entitling SelectMUSIC and/or its Artists to exercise all rights and remedies available to it at law or in equity, including injunctive relief and monetary damages against all users and beneficiaries of the use of such Recording(s). In such case, SelectMUSIC and/or its Artists shall have the right, without providing prior notice to Licensee, to issue a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) notice (as provided by 17 U.S.C. §512 and any successor statute) to any site or outlet in which the project appears or is placed in violation of the terms of this Agreement. Licensee shall be responsible for any damages resulting from any such copyright infringement, including any claims by a third party. In addition, and without prejudice to SelectMUSIC’s other remedies under this Agreement, SelectMUSIC and/or its Artists reserves the right to charge and Licensee agrees to pay a fee equal to up to five (5) times SelectMUSIC’s standard license fee for the unauthorized use of the songs. The foregoing is not a limiting statement of SelectMUSIC's or its Artists' rights or remedies in connection with any unauthorized use of the songs or any breach of this Agreement. Each party (the "Indemnifying Party") shall indemnify, hold harmless and defend the other party (the "Indemnified Party"), its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, and the other party's respective officers, directors, employees and agents from any and all liabilities, actual loss, damages, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorney's fees) incurred by the Indemnified Party that arise out of any claim, demand, suit, action, encumbrance, deficiency, or proceeding brought by a third party that involves, relates to or concerns a violation or other breach by the Indemnifying Party of any of the provisions of this Agreement (including, without limitation, any of the representations or warranties of the Indemnifying Party set forth in this Agreement) or the negligence or willful misconduct of the Indemnifying Party. Provided, however, that the Indemnified Party, upon receipt of a notice of a claim that could result in the Indemnifying Party indemnifying the Indemnified Party, gives prompt notice to the Indemnifying Party of the existence and specifics of such claim. The provisions of this paragraph shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
Licensee agrees to take no action which is intended, or would reasonably be expected, to disparage or harm Licensor or its reputation, or which would reasonably be expected to lead to unwanted or unfavorable publicity for Licensor, any of its Clients, employees, artists, shareholders, associates or partners. For purposes of this section, “disparage” shall mean any negative statement, whether written or oral. The parties agree and acknowledge that this Non-Disparagement clause is a material term of this Agreement. In the event Licensee breaches any component of this Non-Disparagement provision at any time, Licensee acknowledges and agrees that it would be impractical or extremely difficult to ascertain the amount of actual damages to Licensor. For this reason, Licensee agrees that any violation of the Non-Disparagement provision of this Agreement shall result in the imposition of liquidated damages, and not as a penalty, in the amount of Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars, per each occurrence, to be paid by Licensee to Licensor, which represents the reasonable compensation for the loss incurred because of the breach.
This License agreement cannot be edited, altered, modified, or terminated without written consent by both parties.
At no time, while bound to this Agreement, Licensee shall not deal directly or indirectly with any of SelectMUSIC’s Artist(s) regarding any of the Artists dealings with Licensor and any of the Artists recordings.
This Agreement shall be deemed to be entered into in New York, and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States of America and of the State of New York concerning contracts entered into and performed entirely in New York. Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, Any cause of action by Licensor with respect to this agreement must be instituted within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action has arisen or further action is forever barred. Nothing in the present Agreement shall be interpreted as constituting or creating a joint venture or partnership between the Parties. This Agreement shall be to the benefit of and bind the respective heirs, executors, administrators and assigns of the Parties hereto. If any part of this Agreement shall be determined to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction or any other legally constituted body having jurisdiction to make such determination, the remainder of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
