This Agreement does not provide clearance for performing rights, which are governed by PROs, such as ASCAP, BMI, PRS, and similar organizations in countries throughout the world.
Typically, the performing rights royalties are paid by broadcasters and are not the responsibility of video producers, editors and other typical users of production / stock music. This may not be the case in your country. If you plan to play your media project in public or directly broadcast / stream the project yourself, and if you or the broadcaster / venue does not have a blanket performance rights license, this will be your responsibility to understand and to comply with your country’s copyright laws and to obtain additional performing rights if necessary.
Cancellation and termination
