The title of RPM are both published on recordings from various labels or on other media such as hard disk or USB flash drive which are available free of charge for selected users for picking music. The provision of sound or data carriers is not mandatory. The level of provision is at the sole discretion of the RPM. In addition, users can listen and license directly from the online catalog (the "Catalogue"), under according to the current price list. By the use of the website the user agrees that the following terms and conditions in the relationship between RPM and the user are binding. Contradictory, inconsistent or additional terms and conditions of the customer are not valid. A contractual relationship between RPM and the user will only be valid on the basis of these terms and conditions. Changes or additions to these terms will be communicated to the user. The consent of the user to change the terms and conditions shall be deemed granted if he does not object within two weeks of receiving the notice.

The online registration takes place on the web site at determining a user name and a password. The user has to provide the required information correctly and completely. The registration may be rejected in some cases, for important reasons. There is no right to be registered. A confirmation by email after verification of user data will be given by RPM, the activation of additional functions such as listen or download function for the titles in the catalog will be decided by RPM. This is subject to review by RPM. The user is not allowed to give access data to third parties. These access data has to be protected from the unauthorized access of third parties by the user. The User shall indemnify RPM from any liability that results from the unauthorized use of the access. Changes in the user data must be corrected immediately in the user profile by the user.

Sound and data provided to the user will remain the property of RPM. The provision will be undertaken only temporarily and only to the subsequent acquisition of the licensing rights. RPM reserves the right to recover ceded titles. This is particularly relevant for the case that there is no licensing use, within a period of twelve (12) weeks. Costs of return are borne by the users. The user can browse the catalog on the Web site through various search functions for matching titles allude them directly and to display information on the individual titles. If within twelve (12) weeks after the download of the song there is no licensing agreement to use the song in place, the user is no longer authorized to use the song in the production and beyond. The downloaded file has to be deleted after the end of twelve (12) weeks. This does not include internal storage for archival purposes. In any case, the user of titles does not get a license agreement on the further use in accordance with paragraphs 4 to 6 of these Terms he has no rights to use the title. The user is advised that the recording of the title on recording devices or software while using the listening function of the online catalog is an illicit act of reproduction and a legitimate use of the available titles is only possible after properly download of the file and completion of the legal licensing is carried out in accordance with paragraph 4 of the terms and conditions.

Where right to the intended use of the title is not exercised or not only by the GEMA (Society for Musical Performing and Mechanical Reproduction Rights, Berlin and Munich) or another collecting society (CS), the user is obliged using RPM to conclude a license contract for use of the title. In the case of TV Station- and / or in-house productions, the award of the film production rights where they are not royalty free is in Germany the Society for Musical Performing and Mechanical Reproduction Rights, Berlin and Munich (GEMA). More detailed provisions of the Deed of GEMA, particularly where § 1 i) paragraph 3, available at In other countries it might be RPM or the territories CS. The granting of the license is solely for the conditions at the time of transfer of the necessary license applications as to the current price list. The respective cost bases for the appropriate license fee can be found in paragraph 6. of these terms with reference to the current price list. The conclusion of the license agreement requires the transmission of a license application. This must be done by using the downloadable license application pattern, giving all the information marked as required. The transmission of the signed license application is to be made by fax to RPM (or its foreign partners) as a scan of the fax document in PDF format via e-mail. It is also possible to conclude an online purchase of the license. (See also below Part II.) The user is obliged to forward RPM no later than two weeks after completion of production details about the type and extent of use of the song. The conclusion of a license agreement and the related reporting the information required, however, the license has always to take place before the publication of production. In cases in which will be sent to the license application pattern only one mechanical license a license agreement release certificate will be given to the client. Further uses in a different form of use or time of the title which is not covered by the ROBA PM “ALL IN” License always require the completion of a new license agreement. If the performing and broadcasting rights and mechanical reproduction rights in the work are administered by GEMA or other collecting society, they must be obtained from the user via GEMA or another collecting society. This is not the case if and when it is royalty-free repertoire. The user is – as stated in the 4th paragraph under f) - required, for those titles which are not CS free to enter and report them with the necessary information on the appropriate royalty-report forms and forward them to the GEMA (or another CS) and a copy must be sent to RPM. If desired, RPM does the reporting for the use where the bill(s) is/are borne by the licensee. With the submission of the lists required by RPM consent applies to the use of the title to be granted. If the performing and broadcasting rights are perceived to absorption by the collecting society of GVL GmbH (hereinafter "GVL") or any other neighboring rights company, these must be obtained from the users in the GVL or another collecting society.

If the licensed single project altered with a new story, (moving) pictures or text we understand this as a new production and a new license has to be requested. E.g. we do not understand as a single production: Different Advertising spots in a campaign or the three movies within a movietriologie. For the latter three licenses have to be requested to user all our music without limitation for all media, for the world, for forever.

The calculation of the royalty payments will be set as of the date of receipt of the license application as to the RPM price list on that date. For any use that is made without proper licensing, at least double the license fee will be issued. In addition, RPM reserves the right to claims for compensation.
