Master clearance is guaranteed for all of The Cook Crook sample packs. Our sample packs fall into two categories:
These sounds are not for resale.
1) Royalty Free
If a sample pack says "This sample pack is royalty free" in the description, it falls into this category. This gives you, the paying customer, the right to use our copyrighted material- intellectual property without the need to pay royalties or license fees for each use, per each copy or volume sold or some time period of use or sales.
However, although you are not required to pay royalties, if you purchased this pack and place a record using our samples on a major label or by major artist you are required to give co- production credit to Bo404/ The Cook Crook.
2) Non- Royalty Free
If a sample does not say "This sample pack is royalty free" in the description, it falls into this category.
a) If you place a record on a major label, by major artist, or for commercial use using our sample(s), you will spilt the publishing royalties, mechanical royalties, points and advance fees (along with co- production credit) with Bo404/ The Cook Crook.
b) If the sample(s) are used on any independent platforms or for non- commercial use, you can do anything you'd like with them i.e upload to soundcloud, sell beat to indy artist, use on beat tape etc.
