[Community Label] How to get started
#1
Hey all, here is a step by step guide on how to get your soundtracks uploaded on our Youtube channel, or our "community label" as it's called.

<SIZE size="130">Join the label</SIZE>

This is a one time process that can by be done simply by sending me a message saying that you want to join the label on here or send me an e-mail at <EMAIL email="contact@superwerer.com">contact@superwerer.com</EMAIL> saying so.


<SIZE size="130">How to upload a track</SIZE>

To upload a track on our Youtube channel, we need 2 (3) things:

1) Your track's sound file (No remixes of tracks from other authors allowed)
2) Your permission to do so (send the example text below - fill out the brackets)
3) A background picture for the video (optional)

Since you are the original creator and the copyright-holder, we need permission from you for every track you want to upload, so that we can legally distribute it without violating your rights. An example text can be found in the example below.

The e-mail must be sent to <EMAIL email="contact@superwerer.com">contact@superwerer.com</EMAIL> and must be sent from the e-mail that you use for your Youtube account.

<SIZE size="120">Note: The permission text below must be sent with the sound file and the image (if there is one) in the same mail!</SIZE>

Hey SuperWerer team,

I would like you to publish the following track: [Track's title] - [Genre] made by me, on the SuperWerer Youtube channel. The SuperWerer Youtube channel can be found here: <URL url="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2gPk1dlvH-5oUQ15j_1x2g"><LINK_TEXT text="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2gPk1 ... UQ15j_1x2g">https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2gPk1dlvH-5oUQ15j_1x2g</LINK_TEXT></URL> . The track is my original work and can be found as attachment in this e-mail.

Furthermore, I grant you permission to upload and distribute this soundtrack on the channel stated above. You may upload, distribute and monetize it-put ads on the video, as long as my author's username is mentioned in the title of the video and in the description. In the description you may also provide users with my donation link (see below). I reserve the right to withdraw from this agreement by sending you an e-mail containing the following information: Track's name, date of uploading. The track must be taken down from the SuperWerer channel (stated above) within 72 hours. In case I provide a background picture or a video (with or without an audio visualizer) for the track in this e-mail, I also give you the permission to include it in the video. The background picture or the video is also my original work. In case I do not provide a background picture or a video, you can use in the Youtube video the SuperWerer background image of your choice. Moreover if a background image (or a frame from the video, if a video is provided) can be used as thumbnail of the video. If neither an image or a video is provided, you can choose a SuperWerer default picture of your choice as thumbnail. An e-mail address, by which users can contact me can be included in the description of the video (if provided).

Again, here is the relevant information concerning the upload of my track:

Track's name: [Name]
Artist's name: [Username]
Contact e-mail address: [E-mail]
Donate URL: [URL]


<HR>
</HR>

<SIZE size="120">Don't forget to include the background picture (or video) AND the track's file as an attachment in the same e-mail. You can't provide them in separate e-mails.</SIZE>

<SIZE size="120">This is a a text example, that I highly advise you to use. A hand-written text by yourself may miss important points and I may not be able to accept it. </SIZE>


<SIZE size="150">Questions? Post below or send me a mail at <EMAIL email="contact@superwerer.com">contact@superwerer.com</EMAIL></SIZE>

I have a question about the donations: do I have to have a donation link? The message said ") Provide us with a contact e-mail address that viewers of the video can see in the description box to contact you (be it for licensing, feedback, etc.), a<U> donate link(if any) </U>of yours", but later in the message it says "Again, here is the relevant information concerning the upload of my track: Track's name: [Name] Artist's name: [Username] Contact e-mail address: [E-mail] <U>Donate URL: [URL]</U>." So do I need to have a donate link or not?

Indie label? Indie electronic stuff, huh? Maybe I'll have to switch over to grand composition and/or electronic. I'd stick out like a sore thumb otherwise

As [mention]DonJorge[/mention] said yes. However I will need to make a new e-mail permission that you'll need to send to cover the visualizer^^

I was just curious, if I wanted to go forward with being under your label but I still wanted people to be able to freely remix it, would that be allowed?

Yes. you are still the original creator of the piece and you can decide who can use/remix your work. We just get the permission to upload, distribute and potentially monetize it on our Youtube channel.

The only problem with that is that I already distribute my music to online stores like Spotify and Apple Music. Besides that the label sounds like a good idea.

You can further distribute your music yourself. What the permission basically does, is that it allows us to upload, distribute and monetize the track on the Youtube channel, but is not extended to anything beyond that like selling licenses or such, so you are still in control.

Ah ok, that's good to know. In that case, I'd love to join the label.
