Any contributions to the HITRECORD x LOGIC project that were not used in the final song are available to be remixed by the community as usual.

Typically when you contribute to HITRECORD, you are granting HITRECORD and the community a nonexclusive right to use your contribution — meaning you have the right to use your individual Records in any way off-site that you would like (for example, you can sell a photograph you took, publish a poem you wrote, or license video footage you recorded). Therefore, those contributions that were not used in the final song are able to be remixed on-site.

However, the contributors included in the final song (listed HERE) have been granted exclusive rights to their records. Therefore, those contributions used in the final song, including the song itself, cannot be downloaded or remixed for both on and off-site purposes.

Because the final song we made with Logic has the potential for wide commercial music distribution, there were third party requirements — one of which was that we had to obtain exclusive rights to any portion of the composition or performance. So, for the first time in the history of HITRECORD, we had to request the perpetual exclusive rights from any community member whose contribution was included in the final song. We requested those exclusive rights so that the song can be commercially distributed, and that HITRECORD members can benefit financially. We requested exclusivity via a second separate agreement with any community member whose contribution was used in the final song.

If you have any reservations about the prospect of us requesting exclusive rights, please email us at support@hitrecord.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We strongly recommend that you do not contribute to this collaboration until you feel absolutely comfortable.
