What is the difference between a “Non-exclusive lease” and an “Exclusive” license?
A lease is the rental of property. In this case, music (beats).
Leasing music is much more affordable for some artists and is a great way to do a mixtape or demo before committing to an exclusive ownership license which is more expensive but gives you full ownership and publishing rights.
In some cases, artists will lease beats, write and record to them, then come back and purchase an exclusive license granting them full access to publishing, making them the sole owner of the instrumental. The beat is then removed from our store forever and will not be resold, making you the “exclusive license holder”. Please keep in mind that if there is a beat you would like “exclusively” you should aim to purchase it as quickly as you possibly can as there is no guarantee that it will be in our store in the future.
