Terms & Conditions of PROGRAMMING LICENSE
Purchaser agrees as follows:
- Programming & Performance License: KeyboardTEK, LLC shall license to the Purchaser (the “Purchaser”) who is acting on behalf of a theater, school, or organization (the “Producer”), the customized digital keyboard programming files for the production of the Show (the “Programming”), and shall have the non-exclusive right to utilize the Programming solely in connection with the live theatrical exhibition of Producer’s licensed production of the Musical for the period stated in the contract with the licensing company (the “Term”). Producer must be able to show proof of licensing upon request prior to Programmer’s delivery of the Programming. Producer must give credit to KeyboardTEK (www.keyboardtek.com) in your program or Playbill under “Keyboard Programming”.
- Obligation: Purchaser can cancel their order up until the time of the first performance by email or phone. If purchaser does not cancel or pay the invoice by the opening performance, they will be obligated to pay the amount of the invoice as KeyboardTEK is required to pay royalties to the programmer and licensing companies once the show has opened.
- Compensation: In consideration for the license granted herein, Purchaser shall pay a non-returnable, non-recoupable fee to KeyboardTEK, payable in full prior to Programmer’s delivery of the Programming to customer. Funds must be transferred prior to receiving the programming either via cleared check, bank transfer, credit card (MC, VISA, or AmEX), Venmo, Zelle, or Paypal.
If paying by an approved Purchase Order, payment must be made within 30 days of receiving the download link. If payment is not made within 30 days, there will be a 10% late fee added to the balance starting on the 31st day after the programming has been sent and will continue to accrue until the balance is paid in full. If payment is not made within 30 days of receiving the programming, no future purchase orders will be accepted and all orders much be paid for prior to receiving the programming. Furthermore, if payment is not made within 90 days, all 4 licensing companies will be notified and your organization could be subject to further penalties including restrictions on licensing future shows.
- No Other Use of Programming: The Purchaser and Producer shall neither use nor allow others to use the Programming for any purpose other than the live theatrical exhibition of Producer’s production of the Show during the Term stated in the contract with the licensing company. The Purchaser and Producer shall safeguard the Programming from being appropriated by Producer’s agents and employees or any third parties and will permanently delete all Programming upon the expiration of the Term. The Programming has been watermarked and locked for security by KeyboardTEK and, in the event that such watermarking reveals at any time that the Programming delivered hereunder is being or has been used other than as provided for herein, damages of up to Five Thousand US Dollars ($5,000) will be payable by Producer to KeyboardTEK within 14 days upon Programmer’s notice to Producer of such unauthorized use. The programming you are licensing is for this single production only for the duration of the rental period listed in the contract. All subsequent productions including remounts and extensions will require a separate license.
