    contradicts with this -
    You CANNOT sell, loan, rent, lease, assign, remix, rearrange, remove any melodies, instruments, drum programming or transfer all OR any of the products sold or their rights under the Producer to another user (example - Record Label, another production company, another producer), or for use in any competitive product without written consent and or another license agreement.
    This-

    2) Buyer is the sole owner of the music referred to in this agreement.
    contradicts with this -
    Buyer has no ownership of the Producer's copyrights.
    This is ambiguous -
    8) Buyer must contact and inform Seller of CD sales if the Original Instrumental Composition is used for commercial purposes with a record label with gross revenue of over $1,000,000, the Seller must receive credit for the Original Instrumental Composition, unless agreed upon otherwise by the two parties.
    I can't even begin to parse it.


    This is meaningless -
    Buyer must also contact and inform Seller if 150,000 units are sold so Seller can start receiving royalties.
    You're not entitled to royalties by default - they have to be negotiated in the license agreement. Under this agreement, the Buyer is under no obligation to negotiate royalties. His only duty is to inform the Seller after 150,000 units are sold.


    Here-
    1) Buyer has the right to perform with the Producer's music in public. If the Producer's music composition purchased by Buyer is exploited regionally, nationally or worldwide via radio, television, motion picture or in any other form of entertainment, Buyer must contact Seller so that Seller can take proper steps in obtaining any performance royalties generated.
    What percentage does the seller get? If I was the buyer, I'd contact the seller when this happens and tell him I took 100% of the writer and publisher share. Under this agreement, that isn't a breach, and there's nothing the Seller could do.

    Plus it's riddled with grammar errors and other nitpicky things that don't belong in a legal document. Not trying to be mean, but it's better to find out a contract sucks before you use it rather than when you need to defend it in court.

    Could you fix and re-post it without the grammatical errors and other errors you found? I found a few but I'm sure I didn't catch them all..
