Leasing Music Supply Service Product

Download Understanding Schedule B

If you are leasing CD's, DVD's or VCD's from a CONNECT music licensing licensed Music Supply Service or Video Pool Service, you can be assured that the product you have leased has been legally produced and meets or exceeds industry standard.

We wish to draw your attention to some of the conditions imposed upon your lease of this product. When you obtained the product, you signed a lease agreement that contains an acknowledgement. Items 1 and 2 of this acknowledgement state:

  1. Recorded musical compositions embodied on Analogue Programs/Digital Programs Leased from «COMPANY» are not to be duplicated, sold or otherwise distributed, pledged, mortgaged or in any other way encumbered.
  2. The copyright in the recorded musical compositions embodied on Analogue Programs/Digital Programs Leased from «COMPANY» are the property of CONNECT music licensing member Record Companies.

This means that if you decide you no longer wish to operate a commercial business offering sound recordings or music videos as entertainment to the public, you may not sell or otherwise dispose of the programs that you have leased to any party under any circumstance, except an approved assignment of the lease.

It is clearly stated on the packaging as well as the face of each CD, VCD or DVD that you lease from a CONNECT music licensing licensed Music Supply Service or Video Pool Service that the product is:

"For restricted use only. Subject to Recall. NOT FOR SALE. *Music Videos/Sound Recordings licensed by CONNECT music licensing are the property of record companies (the owners of copyright), all rights reserved. If you purchased this [compact disc, cartridge, cassette or other contrivance] call 1-800-668-8820."

If you breach the acknowledgement you signed by duplicating, selling, or otherwise disposing of product you have leased, the Music Supply Service or Video Pool Service is obligated, under the terms of their Agreement with CONNECT music licensing, to recall the product and any copies from you. You will be liable for infringement of copyright in the sound recordings or music videos and may be subject to civil or criminal penalties under the provisions in the Copyright Act.

Understanding Your Schedule B

  • When you subscribe to a Music Supply Service, it is important to understand that you do not own the CDs - you are renting them. The CDs are still the property of the Music Supply Service and you do not have the right to copy, sell, rent, give away or lend these CDs. If you copy, sell, rent, give away or lend these CDs, your subscriber agreement will be terminated and you will have to return all CDs, at your expense, to the Music Supply Service.
  • The sound recordings on a Music Supply Service CD are owned by the record companies.

    You may only keep the CDs as long as the Music Supply Service is licensed by CONNECT music licensing. If the Music Supply Service is no longer licensed by CONNECT music licensing, you will receive a written notice and must return all the CDs you have rented to the Music Supply Service or to CONNECT music licensing.
  • Each CD you rent from a Music Supply Service will have its own unique serial number and the CONNECT music licensing warning on the CD and on the packaging as follows:
