Terms of Service

Sync Bundle Licensing

If you download songs on bellabeth.com, you need to purchase them as part of a “Sync Bundle” to get a sync license. A sync license allows you to use the songs in your own audiovisual projects, such as videos, podcasts, or presentations. Songs that are downloaded without a sync license are for personal use only and cannot be used in any public or commercial way.

The following is a licensing agreement between Bellabeth.com, the Licensor, and the Licensee, who wishes to use the music. By purchasing and using a “Sync Bundle” in their own content, the Licensee agrees to the following terms and conditions:

1. Grant of License

Subject to the terms and conditions of this agreement, the Licensor, Bellabeth.com, grants the Licensee a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license to use the musical composition(s) purchased in the form of “Sync Bundles” for the purposes outlined in Section 2. Songs downloaded that weren't purchased in the form of a “Sync Bundle” on bellabeth.com don't grant the buyer a sync license.

2. Permitted Uses

The Licensee is permitted to use the music for the following purposes:

  • Social media content
  • YouTube videos
  • Podcasts
  • Commercial non-public videos (eg. wedding videos)

3. Prohibited Uses

The Licensee is expressly prohibited from:

  • Reselling, distributing, or sublicensing the music individually or as part of a collection
  • Creating derivative works based on the music, including writing songs on top of the music or recording cover versions and distributing those songs

4. Attribution (optional)

The Licensee may credit the Licensor as the original creator of the music in their content and videos, and provide a link to Bellabeth.com, where the Licensor's music can be found.

5. Ownership and Termination

The Licensor retains all rights, title, and interest in the music. The Licensee acknowledges that this license is subject to the terms outlined in this agreement. The Licensor reserves the right to terminate this agreement under the following conditions:

  • In the event of a material breach by the Licensee, with written notice and a reasonable cure period provided.
  • In the event of changes in legal or regulatory requirements that affect the licensing of the music.

7. Governing Law and Disputes

This agreement is governed by the laws of Germany. Any disputes arising from or related to this agreement shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of that country.

8. Content ID

Many of the songs available on bellabeth.com are (or will be) registered with the YouTube Content ID system. Make sure to add your channel link in the “notes” section during checkout so I can cross-reference your info to release content ID claims. 

9. Entire Agreement

This agreement constitutes the entire understanding between the parties and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous agreements or communications regarding the subject matter. The Licensee acknowledges that they have read and understood this agreement and agree to be bound by its terms and conditions.


Content ID

Some of the songs available on bellabeth.com are (or will be) registered with the YouTube Content ID system. Make sure to add your channel link in the “notes” section during checkout so I can cross-reference your info to release content ID claims. 

If you have purchased a license to a song getting claimed on YouTube on a different platform then make sure to follow their recommended way of getting rid of claims. If for whatever reason your claim dispute gets rejected you can reach out to me here with infos and proof of purchasing the music and I will try to resolve the issue from my end.

If you haven't purchased a sync bundle on this website or licensed my music on some other platform (Motion Array, YouTube Creator Music, etc.) you can't dispute the content ID claim.


Karaoke Track Usage Agreement

This Karaoke Track Usage Agreement ("Agreement") is entered into between Bellabeth.com ("Licensor") and the purchaser ("Licensee") of karaoke tracks. By purchasing and using the karaoke tracks, Licensee acknowledges that they have read and understood this Agreement and agree to be bound by its terms and conditions.

1. Grant of License

Licensor grants Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the karaoke tracks purchased from Licensor's store. The license allows Licensee to use the karaoke tracks in the following manner:

a. Personal Use: Licensee is permitted to use the karaoke tracks for personal use, which includes activities such as teaching, school projects, or other personal projects that are not intended for public distribution or commercial purposes.

b. Live Performances: Licensee is allowed to use the karaoke tracks for live performances, including public or private events.

c. Uploading Videos or Audio on Social Media Platforms: Licensee is permitted to upload and monetize videos or audio recordings of themselves singing to the karaoke versions on social media platforms such as YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitch. However, Licensee acknowledges that certain songs may be subject to Content ID systems on platforms like YouTube, which may limit monetization opportunities due to the presence of the original song unless a sync license is purchased.

2. Restrictions on Usage

Licensee shall not engage in the following activities:

a. Uploading Tracks without Vocal Addition: Licensee is prohibited from uploading videos or audio recordings of the karaoke tracks without any vocal addition. The karaoke tracks should always be used in conjunction with Licensee's singing.

d. Distributing Audio to Music Streaming Platforms: Licensee is prohibited from distributing the audio recordings of the karaoke tracks to music streaming platforms such as Spotify, iTunes, and other similar services.

e. Monetization Restrictions: Licensee agrees not to monetize the karaoke tracks in any way outside of YouTube's monetization program and live performances. This includes any form of commercial exploitation, such as selling the karaoke tracks or using them for profit outside of YouTube. In order to monetize your video on YouTube you'll likely need to get a sync license here and fill out the Content-ID release form as many of these songs are in the Content ID system.

3. Ownership and Intellectual Property

Licensor retains all rights, ownership, and intellectual property related to the karaoke tracks. This Agreement does not transfer any ownership or copyright to Licensee.

4. Termination

If Licensee violates the terms of service, they will receive a written notice to remove the infringing content from any platforms or mediums. Failure to comply will result in a copyright strike.
