Most common question:
Q: Can I incorporate sound elements of the templates/project files into my own tracks/compositions, if I completely change the melodies and chord progressions?
A: Yes this is possible, but you need to change the melodies and chord progressions more than 50% to the original template files.
You may not:
- take the project files as they are and release them (on a record label or something similar) under your name
- directly or indirectly license, sub-license, sell or resell the Item, or redistribute the work alone (even for free), or any of these things.

- using parts for non-profit videos
- using files in a live or radio DJ set
- incorporate sound elements of the templates/project files into your own tracks/compositions, if you completely change the melodies and chord progressions (you need to change the melodies and chord progressions more than 50% to the original template files - no Shazam or other detecting services should be able to recognize any similarities to original Beat Spot work)
