Random Questions on Contracts, Leasing, & Selling Beats.


New member
OK, so I'm still in the learning stages of selling beats. So far, I've got copyrights down, and I'm now moving on to contracts. More so, leasing & selling beats and avoiding any legal issues. Eventually I'm gonna seek legal advise from an entertainment lawyer to help me out. But, here are just some questions I have right now:

-What's the process like selling beats online,
from Start to Finish?
(For Ex: Them buying the beat,
Paying for it, Signing their contract, sending them the
beat, etc.)

-I see a lot of these Leasing/Exclusive contracts
flying around FP and other sites. Are these even
OK to use, I'm just curious?

-How will buyers receive and sign their contracts?

-Would it cost to have a lawyer draw up a contract
for me? If yes, how much?

-What happens if I lease a beat to someone and
then sell the same beat to another person two
weeks later. Can the person I leased the beat to
first still use that beat?

-If some wants the tracked-out WAV files to a beat,
do I send him/her the WAV files already mixed with
effects & all or do I send them the WAV files raw and

-Let's say a major artist is buying a beat from my
page, and me not knowing who's on the other end,
that artist uses it for his album which goes on to
sell millions, do I get any royalties?
Cause at the
end of the day I wanna get paid if it blows up.

-And finally, any tips?
