We supply loops which may be used by thousands of users thus it is upto you to decide and check whether the completed project is substantially "unique". Do not sell simple beats you make using just loops that we supply as they may then sound too similar to work by other users. Just to save any conflicts...try and be original, add your own samples, create new compositions from Instrumental Notes that some Sample Packs have.

We do our very best to make sure samples included are public domain or we have the proper distribution licences however, if you think any of our samples have mistakenly been used without your permission or violates your copyright then contact us and we will strive to remove them immediately. In such cases we will make a decision based on supporting proofs you supply us with.
