After much research, We at Abinseloaded coined out some negative part of using free beat as an Upcoming isn’t quite bad but still bad in some aspect.
The terms of what you ‘can do with a beat labeled as ‘FREE’ really depend on what the beat maker said was allowed. The term ‘FREE BEAT’ depends on what the beat maker determined and clarifies it means.
Below are some of the disadvantages of using a free beat. You cannot use someone else’s content without permission. Doing so is illegal copyright infringement.
Any part of someone else’s music that is recognizable, whether that is a beat or a sample, is protected by copyright. The internet makes it easier than at any time in human history to find the original creator and then contact them through email. You really have no excuse for not asking permission.
1. Hurts Your Brand
Whether you know it or not, using tagged beats for your songs isn’t doing anything good to help you or your brand.
Any music you release to the public online, whether it be to Soundcloud, Twitter, Facebook, or your own site – or any music video you create, is affecting your brand either for the negative or positive.
If your fans listen to a four-minute song of yours, and they repeatedly hear these watermarks playing throughout, you risk your music being perceived as low quality.
2. Distracting to the Listener
The producer tags can be very distracting to the listener – your fans! After all, the watermarks playing over the demonstration instrumentals are intended to be removed after a license is purchased anyway.
Over time they may become very annoyed, and in any case, could be completely turned off from your music altogether and anything you release in the future.
3. No Royalties
Using a free beat can sometimes lead the artist not to earn a dime from his/her music because the royalties are been claimed by Publishers and sent directly to the rightful owners of the beat.
No One wants to spend money and time in the studio and later someone will enjoy the profits.
Now music stores terminate artists who use free beat from uploading to their platform except a document is provided to prove you can use the instrumental.
The best bet if you really want to know what you’re allowed to do with a beat is to read that beat makers page thoroughly. If you purchase a basic beat lease sometimes it will come with a lease agreement with the beat file.
Some beat makers don’t even bother sending a beat contract unless you buy a premium or exclusive rights. Make sure that if you ever get the exclusive rights you get the paperwork saying so. You don’t want problems down the road.
