Customers may edit/alter the length of the beat as they see fit. Beats are purchased as “Work Made for Hire” whereby the clearing of any sampled material is the responsibility of the customer. Information about samples can be obtained by contacting AND-Y-BEATS. After the delivery of the beat, AND-Y-BEATS will be unbound of any further responsibilities to the customer and legally free of further duties. Abuse or failure to adhere to listed terms and conditions will be punishable by law.

2. CREDIT
