Any attempt to trade outside the OurSong Service, to trade a prohibited item, or to make an offer to trade items where the trade is contingent upon an event in violation of these TOS may result in your OurSong account being suspended or terminated.
7. Verification Procedures
Because users may be purchasing Song Shares, OurSong has certain identification requirements for its users. This ensures we remain in compliance with KYC/AML laws in the jurisdictions in which we operate. OurSong collects and verifies information about you in order to: (a) protect OurSong and the community from fraudulent users, and (b) to keep appropriate records of OurSong's customers. Your OurCoin and Song Share transactions and balances from a linked payment method, are based on the identifying information and/or proof of identity you provide to OurSong.
All customers who wish to conduct transactions using OurSong Services are required to provide additional information over what is required for a basic registration:
- Providing your name and valid email address, a password and your city, state, and country of residence,
- Certifying that you have reached the majority of age in your country or state of residence, or providing the consent of a parent or guardian if you are under such age,
- Verifying your identity by submitting the following information:
- Date of Birth
- Physical address
- Government issued ID number
Notwithstanding these minimum verification procedures for the referenced OurSong Services, OurSong may require you to provide or verify additional information, or to wait some amount of time after completion of a transaction, before permitting you to use any OurSong Services.
8. Fan Accounts and Song Shares
Song Shares. Song Shares are a digital asset that may include original commercially released tracks as well as other unreleased versions or alternate takes; photos, images or graphics; background or other information about the Creators. Each Song Share is created and offered by OurSong Creators in limited editions with a public record of ownership.
When you purchase a Song Share, you receive, subject to this TOS, a limited, personal, non-exclusive, transferable license to the Song Share and the Virtual Content contained therein, which may be accessed solely through the OurSong Site. This license does not include the right to make or share copies of the licensed Content.
Creators may reward their fans who have purchased Song Shares by either providing additional Content to the Song Shares, or by distributing OurCoin to Song Share owners.
Fans. OurSong users who acquire Song Shares are referred to as “Fans”. In order for a Fan to acquire a Song Share, the user must first purchase OurCoin, as per the requirements described in these Terms of Service. The user may then offer the amount of OurCoin at which the Creator has priced their Song Shares. Note that the pricing of Song Shares will vary between projects; the price for each different Song Share is set by the Creator of that particular project. The number of Song Shares will vary between projects; some projects will offer more Song Shares than others.
Song Shares represent only the right to receive the licensed Content. Song Shares do not afford their holders with any right to control, vote, or consent with respect to the creation, management or exploitation of any licensed Content or otherwise and do not represent any ownership interest in the licensed Content or in any entity or otherwise.
9. Creator Accounts
Creators. Users who intend to create music projects on the OurSong platform (“Projects”) are referred to as “Creators”. Currently, Creator accounts on OurSong are by invitation only.
A “Project” is the collaboration of one or more Creators with the goal of creating and releasing Song Shares, which may include various materials (including videos, audio, and photos) around the history and creation of the project.
Only the Project Owner (the first Creator on a Project) may invite additional Creators to it. Each Creator who is added to a Project is a “Project Member”. The Project Owner will have the sole discretion to determine if a Creator is made a Project Member.
If you have received a Creator invitation and set up a Creator OurSong account, the following additional terms apply to you:
As a Creator, you can create or join a Project and contribute music, lyrics, graphics, or other materials to the Project (“Creator Contributions”).
Prior to the initial release for sale of any Song Share (the "Release"), the Project Members must unanimously agree to the number of Song Shares to sell and/or reserve (for each Project Member), the date of the Release, and at what price of each Song Share. The number and price of the Song Shares so agreed by the Project Members will be unchangeable and irrevocable upon the Release. For the avoidance of doubt, Song Shares reserved by a Project Member may still be traded on the Site at the number and price decided by such Project Member from time to time after the Release.
By providing any Creator Contribution on the Site, you shall be solely responsible for any material so provided and the consequences of submitting and publishing such Creator Contribution on the Site. For clarity, you retain all of your ownership rights (including but not limited to the copyright) in the Creator Contribution. However, by submitting the Creator Contribution, you hereby grant OurSong a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform such Creator Contribution for the only purposes necessary for OurSong to (i) exhibit your Creator Contribution on the Site or via the Service, (ii) proceed any transactions you have authorized and (iii) promote and redistribute part or all of the Services (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You also hereby grant each user of the Service a non-exclusive license to access your Creator Contribution on the Site, including those with limited access to the Fans only, and to use, reproduce, distribute, display and perform such Creator Contribution as permitted through the functionality of the Service and under these TOS. The above licenses granted by you will terminate within a commercially reasonable time after you remove or delete your Creator Contribution from the Site or the Service (if applicable). You understand and agree, however, that OurSong may retain, but not use, display, distribute, or perform, server copies of your Creator Contribution that have been removed or deleted. The above licenses granted by you in user comments or direct messages you submit are perpetual and irrevocable.
You represent and warrant that you own or control all rights in and to Creator Contributions that you contribute to a project. You further represent and warrant that you have the right to grant the license granted above to us and our affiliates and service providers, and each of their and our respective licensees, successors, and assigns.
You understand and acknowledge that you are responsible for any Creator Contributions you submit or contribute, and you, not OurSong, have full responsibility for such content, including its legality, reliability, accuracy, and appropriateness.
You acknowledge and agree that all Creator Contributions must comply with the Creator Contributions Standards set forth below.

The revised version will be effective at the time we post it. We will provide you with prior notice of any material changes via our website.
Electronic Delivery of Communications

- Account details, history, transaction receipts, confirmations, and any other Account or transaction information;
- Legal, regulatory, and tax disclosures or statements we may be required to make available to you; and
- Responses to claims or customer support inquiries filed in connection with your Account.
We will provide these Communications to you by posting them on the OurSong website, emailing them to you at the primary email address listed in your OurSong profile, communicating to you via instant chat, and/or through other electronic communication such as text message or mobile push notification.
Hardware and Software Requirements
In order to access and retain electronic Communications, you will need the following computer hardware and software:

- A current web browser that includes 128-bit encryption with cookies enabled;
- A valid email address (your primary email address on file with OurSong); and
