The Serenader app allows users to customize the play of a song to their tastes. This is done by making a personal selection of available musical performance recordings made for the song. Typical musical performance recordings might be a guitar accompaniment, a drum beat, etc. The audio settings of recordings may be also selected. A personal song customization is called a “serenade”.
You agree to play any music available on the Serenader App (the “App”) only for your personal use.
You may download a reference audio recording of a song only to help you record a musical performance that you want to contribute to the song. The song maybe yours or someone else. No other uses are permitted.
With regard to new serenades that you create of any song on the App, you may share such new serenade with other users of the App as well with anyone on the Internet, provided that you shall make no other use of such new serenade except with the express written permission of Dopastream and the original creator(s) of the recording(s).
You agree that any new serenade made by you can be revised, changed and made into a new serenade by Dopastream or any other user of the App.

Section For Artists Who Contribute Songs And Recordings
For good and valuable consideration the receipt of which hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:
B. PARTICIPATION IN SERENADER:
a. Serenader uses a real time streaming technology for music made by Dopastream.
b. Users of the App can access songs and modify them in real time. The App allows users to customize a song to their tastes as the song plays; adjust the volume of each instruments; browse serenades that participating artists provide; and share their customizations with their friends who in turn can make their own customized serenades.
c. The App shall be free of charge although Dopastream reserves the right to add “premium” service in the future.
d. Users shall be permitted to download reference audio of serenades only for personal use to help recording their own musical performances and contribute them to the song.
2. NON-EXCLUSIVE GRANT OF RIGHTS:
a. You hereby grant to Dopastream the non-exclusive right to use recordings (“Records”) of musical compositions (“Songs”) and musical performances (“Performances”) that you Deliver to Dopastream, as well as other Materials as defined in Paragraph 4(a)(iii) below. For purposes of this Agreement, “Deliver” shall mean:
(i) that you shall deliver sound files for your Record and instructions for how you would allow users to modify the Record provided that users shall always at least have the ability to vary the volume and pan of each instrument. You can create several serenades of your Record for users to listen to by defining different sets of sounds files. A serenade consists of mixing instructions or “mixing recipe.” For instance, the “unplugged serenade” might be just the voice and acoustic guitar sound files. The “plugged-in” serenade may include electric guitar instead of acoustic guitar. You can also upload more sound files at a subsequent time and create more serenades. Serenades may be presented to users as “flavors” or “moods” to aid categorization and song discovery by users. The App tastes-matching algorithms may also create spontaneously serenades to better match users specific tastes. You shall be able to define the extent of the modifications to your Records that users or the App algorithms may do. Listeners will see that as limited controls on the App. The following are examples of restrictions that you may place on users ability to modify your Records: (i) you might restrict a user from fully turning down the volume of instruments; (ii) or you might restrict users from playing your Record without the original vocals; (iii). you may decide that users can only add or remove specific instruments; (iv) you might limit the addition of of more than one instrument from a third party. All of these files will be stored in your digital locker on Serenader’s server.
(ii) that you deliver at least one image of yourself and a song description for each Song and Record. You shall have the option of delivering lyrics for each Song.
b. Users shall have no ability to download your individual sound files.
c. You shall only be permitted to upload Records and Songs, or other Materials, that you have the right to grant non-exclusive licenses for third party use, and which require no clearances, permissions or payment from or to any third party.
d. You grant Dopastream the right to allow users of the App to modify the Songs and Records, provided that users shall not be allowed to download the sound files of your Record, provided further that they will have the ability to share their serenades of your Records by sharing access to serenade data containing sound file identifiers and mixing instructions, that the users create. The serenades data shall be stored in the user’s personal digital locker. When a serenade data is accessed by those the user shares the serenade with, the recipient will hear the serenade but shall not have the ability to download the individual sound files.
e. Subject to 2(a)(i), users shall also have the ability to make musical additions to your Records. By way of example, if your Record consists of your voice and piano, a user may add a guitar performance to the Record. Users shall have the right to share these new recordings with other users together with the serenade data. Those other users will have the ability to listen to the serenade with or without the new recording.
f. Those that the user shares their serenades with shall also have the ability to make new serenades of the serenade and, subject to 2(a)(i), add new recordings to the their serenade.
g. Except for Dopastream’s non-exclusive right to include your Songs and Records in the App as set forth herein, you shall retain any and all other rights in each Song and Record including the copyrights therein. Nothing in this agreement will limit your right to make any other use of each Song or Record including your right to sell, license or otherwise exploit the Song and/or Record, provided that you may not use “Serenader” or any logo or other mark associated with Dopastream, in connection with the promotion, sale or license of any Song or Record, without the express prior written permission of Dopastream.
i. You hereby give Dopastream the right to use your name, image, likeness, and approved bio in the App in connection with your Songs and Records, and in any advertising, promotion or marketing of such Records.
