MIDI FILE USAGE REQUIREMENTS

As of 11 March 2009, I no longer offer Audio or Data CDs. Rendered audio versions of my MIDI files will have to be made by the user (with the option noted below in Fees). However, a one-time royalty free license fee still applies to any commercial use of my MIDI files whether rendered, or not, to audio. As of 16 October 2010, money orders (foreign nor domestic) are not accepted for payments.

FEES

NOTE: By single use, I mean for website background or newsletters, greeting cards, and video demos. Multiple use means those usages of my MIDI files or rendered audio file versions of them used in bundled (or application embedded) sales distributions such as games, products or applications,

For the commercial single use of my MIDI files only, the fee is $5 each. For commercial multiple use, the fee is 1 cent per $1 of sales per file used.

For the commercial single use of any rendered audio versions of my MIDI files, the fee is $10 each. For the commercial multiple use, the fee is 5 cents per $1 of sales per file used.

For my own produced conversions of my MIDI files to WAV/MP3, the rendering fee is $5, which is in addition to the MIDI file license fee of $5. Thus the total is $10.

Such files will be provided for download only (as in WAV or MP3 [192Kbps encoded] format) of any of my MIDI files using the Roland Virtual Sound Canvas (VSC) 3.2 software synthesizer. Such sale items (digitized files) will be posted for a temporary period of not more than one week on my website on a private webpage for the user to download the files from. They will be posted as soon as the payment has been received and deposited, and an email acknowledgement will be sent giving the name of the temporary webpage to download them from. The Roland VSC 3.2 software is otherwise available for purchase from PG Music (www.pgmusic.com) at a cost of about $30, which is otherwise bundled with the company’s program Band-in-a-Box.

All license fees are a one-time only requirement and non-refundable. Payments of single use fees are required prior to use, and for multiple use fees, payments must be not later than yearly [by 1 February] or for each 10,000 sales, whichever comes first.

PAYMENT METHODS

Payments must be in United States dollars ($) and can only be accepted by check (personal, or bank draft/cashier’s from a U.S bank or Credit Union). Sorry, but I cannot accept money orders, nor credit or debit cards. For checks, please allow up to five business days for processing. I will email acknowledgment of payments received if you include your email address. If you don’t then I will mail you a confirmation letter of acknowledgement.

PERMISSIONS

Non-commercial users may, use my MIDI files as is or render them at no cost. Permission for non-commercial users is not required. Permission for commercial users is granted after the receipt and the depositing of their payments are acknowledged by me to them by email or mail.

CREDIT ACKNOWLEDGMENT

Credit acknowledgement to me (Benjamin R. Tubb), my website’s name (Public Domain Music) and its URL (www.pdmusic.org) are required by both non-commercial and commercial users.
