Seller
It is not a song I wrote but I think "Someone is Plagiarizing."

Plagiarism is always a sensitive issue.

1. Send us information about the song in question and after a careful review

2. we will send you a response.

3. While you wait, please try using Copyright Issue Board, offered by eMUSICMARKET.

You can ask and vote with peers on issues involving plagiarism.

It is not easy to solve an issue like this while taking only one side into consideration.

Moreover, if you claim that your own music is being plagiarized and your music has already been released commercially with a high possibility of it being heard in this manner, eMUSICMARKET cannot help with a solution.

For these reasons eMUSICMARKET is setting up a countermeasure for users called "Copyrighy Issue."

I posted a song to eMUSICMARKET, "but it is also now Being Sold at Another Location". What should I do with the songs already on eMUSICMARKET?

eMUSICMARKET was made to offer members many opportunities and to help them realize their dreams.

This coincides with eMUSICMARKET's fundamental goal even if it gives members opportunities outside of selling songs on eMUSICMARKET.

Having said that, members can upload and remove their songs from eMUSICMARKET as long as the law, eMUSICMARKET, and the other location's contract or terms can allow.

However, when uploading a song to eMUSICMARKET, please be fully aware of any other contracts' conditions and confirm that there will be no problem.

What happens to "My Songs after My Membership Period has Ended" and I am reverted back to Green?

When your membership period ends up, your membership will be reverted back to Green. Your uploaded songs that have been exposed on the searching engine will stop being exposed except the number of songs designated as Green membership. And the upload limitation will effect in 7 days.

How can I "Change the Price of my song?"

You cannot change the price for a song that is already for sale.

You may change any personal settings for a song at anytime before it is for sale.

What should I do if "Someone Else is Selling My Music?"

If the song has been sold and is being used commercially the Seller takes full responsibility.

In this case please send all relevant documents and evidence to eMUSICMARKET and when it becomes a legal process the relevant documents may be released to the appropriate legislation.

Can I "Upload Band Music?"

Depending on if the band is selling a song's melody or the complete song itself, the copyright situation can vary.

If the song was composed and performed by the member in a home studio all rights belong to the member, but in the case of multiple people collaborating, there can be problems regarding joint copyright.

In this case when uploading a song all performers involved in the performance process must come to an agreement.

That is to say, all joint copyright holders should confirm that the song is being uploaded, as eMUSICMARKET is not responsible for any problems that may occur otherwise.

Is it possible to "Sell Previously Published Music?"

It is both possible and impossible.

At its basic level, eMUSICMARKET acts as a mediator for the sale and purchase of song rights

that have not gained copyright trust between the composer and purchaser at a copyright agency.

Therefore agreements can be made between the Seller and Buyer for unpublished songs with no copyright and songs that do not have a copyright trust with another company.

However if you wish to make a deal for a song that has a trust commission with a copyright agency, we ask that you consult with the agency that holds the neighboring rights.

If the Seller uploads without confirming these rights eMUSICMARKET and the Buyer hold no responsibility for anyproblems that may arise.

Can I "Sell Just the Song Melody?"

Yes you CAN !!

For example, Song melodies can be sold in consideration of situations such as the Buyer's plans and country, or the Seller may not have gone through a professional production process.

In this case the Buyer can buy only the melody and complete the song themselves.

Is it possible for me to "Upload my Friend's Music?"

Simply put, it is not possible.

In today's world, where the steps taken to protect copyrights are becoming stronger, the copyright owner of the song has the rights to sell and use it, and as there are various consumer disputes over sales intervention of neighboring copyrights, when uploading to eMUSICMARKET responsibility is given to the uploader.

In other words, as Sellers are responsible for the copyright of their music, they should either be the creator, or have copyrights over their uploads.

Can I Sell a song that has band vocals or "Other Collaborative Performances?"

For bands, situations over copyright can arise depending on if the music's melody or the whole song is being sold.

If the song was composed and performed by the member in a home studio all rights belong to the member, but in the case of multiple people collaborating, there can be problems regarding joint copyright.

In this case when uploading a song all performers involved in the performance process must come to an agreement.

That is to say, all joint copyright holders should confirm that the song is being uploaded, as eMUSICMARKET is not responsible for any problems that may occur otherwise.

What "File Types" are allowed?

You must upload the file in the proper format(16bit, 44.1Khz WAV file) after the transaction is complete.

We plan to allow other file types in the future. All mp3s can be streamed in the monitoring process.

How do I "Use the Site as a Seller?"

Sellers may sell music or use additional services such as Blog or eMUSE at no extra cost.

Sellers may sell songs using two methods.

1) Sell at an advertised price.

This is not much different from regular online sales.

2) Sell using eMUSICMARKET's mediation system.

The Buyer will negotiate with the Seller after proposing sales conditions and a price for the music they want.

This can take some time but it is possible for the Buyer and Seller to agree on conditions and pricing for a reasonable transaction.

Are there "Any Other Differences Between Seller Levels?"

However, Sellers who received Pro confirmation will have search results that are separated from non-Pros.

"Are Refunds possible After Purchasing" a song?

After a purchase, a refund can be requested within a given period for reasons stated in number 5 and number 7,respectively.

But Buyers cannot request a refund due to change of heart.

What should Buyer do "if the File Type or Bit Rate of the song is Not What he Wants?"

Buyers can request an edit from the Seller.

If the Seller does not respond or is dishonest in their actions, the transaction can be canceled within seven days of its completion.

What should I do if the Seller "Does Not Permit an Edit" of purchased song?

Buyers and Sellers should negotiate the sale after completing the transaction.

If the Buyer purchased the song for its main melody and needs additional editing, due to contractual obligations the Seller cannot simply decline.

Moreover, although the Buyer purchased the song planning to use the original track, if he or she needs a rearrangement an additional fee may be charged for the negotiation.

What should I do "If a Purchased Song has Copyright Issues" later on?

First, Sellers must confirm before uploading that there will not be any problems with copyright or any other area.

Second, plagiarizing issues will be cleared through eMUSICMARKET's filtering system (such as Copyright Issue category), although if there are any problems the side raising the issue may request to cancel the transaction and a refund will be issued.

If there are legal troubles eMUSICMARKET will handle them in regards to the terms of service.

Can I "Negotiate Payment" for a song?

If a Buyer hears a song he or she likes but wishes to mediate the sales conditions and pricing, he or she may use eMUSICMARKET's system to offer new conditions and a new price to the Seller.
