By any use whatsoever by Licensee of the Licensed Material, Licensee thereby accepts all of the terms of this License Agreement, without limitation. Provided that the Licensee complies with each and every term of this Agreement, any license granted hereunder shall be non-revocable.

Beatcan.com is a membership only service and requires purchase of a Licence plan. Our unique service removes all of the headaches which traditional licensing services have and reduces the time to find the right composition with just a click of a button. Our content may be used for any project, commercial or otherwise, including but not limited to use in feature films, broadcast, commercial, industrial, educational video, print, and multimedia projects, games, and the internet content. Once you download a file, it is yours to keep and to use forever, royalty-free, even if you change your subscription or cancel your account.
Beatcans provides content creators with access to royalty-free music in today’s copyright-centric environment. Using a song that one does not own the rights to can sabotage a project. The rightsholders can —rightfully — have a video taken down on youtube for copyright infrigment or take one's ad revenue. Until now, many creative enthusiasts and professionals alike have been forced to watch from the sidelines because of costly and complicated content licenses. Beatcan is one of the first services to remove those restrictions for all producers. With video consumption soaring globally, high-quality music is a necessity for any project, and believes it should not be reserved only for those with deep pockets. We are proud to lead the movement to democratize creative content, giving both hobbyists and professionals alike access to premium audio and video made by handpicked and professional producers that any budget can afford. Beatcan already has a backlog of content ready to be added to the service, so new songs should be available to users on a near weekly basis.
