Manipulation can be the result of activities undertaken with respect to either individual or
groups of Recordings in order to artificially improve chart positioning, increase market share,
increase royalty or other payments, or for any other fraudulent or dishonest purposes.
II. You should be aware that Streaming Manipulation may be the result of the actions of a third
party, such as a promotion or marketing company, record label or music distributor, acting on
behalf of an artist or on its own behalf. You are encouraged to investigate and vet any
companies or individuals you may enlist, retain, or employ to promote or market your music, as
you may be liable for Streaming Manipulation perpetrated by a third party on your behalf. For the

Streaming Manipulation (collectively, “Improper Conduct”), Company reserves the right to (i)

(ii) block your ability to otherwise withdraw funds therefrom until resolution of the suspect
activities to the satisfaction of Company is obtained, and (iii) remove any or all of your
Recordings from any or all Consumer Stores. You further agree that such revenues will be
forfeited by you if Company determines, in its good faith discretion, that your account or
Recordings have been subjected to, involved in, or generated revenue from Improper Conduct.
(f) You further agree to the following:
I. You agree to provide Company with any information reasonably requested by the Company as
part of its investigation into Improper Conduct.
II. You agree that if a Consumer Store notifies Company that any of your Recordings have
generated revenue, plays, or streams as a result of Improper Conduct, such notice will serve as
sufficient evidence for Company to determine, in its good faith discretion, that such revenues or
plays are the result of Improper Conduct.
III. Upon Company’s determination that your account or Recordings have been subjected to,
involved in, or generated revenue from Improper Conduct, you agree that all revenue in your
account that has been frozen by Company is forfeited, regardless of whether it was generated
from any specific Recording(s) or Consumer Store.
IV. You agree that Company’s good faith determination of Improper Conduct can be based on
streaming or other activity that is the same or similar to cases that the Company has previously
determined involved Improper Conduct.

Conduct, and such revenues have already been paid out to you, you agree to return such

Company in the event Company disables access to your account, your Recordings and/or any

Conduct was caused by you or your affiliates’ actions or omissions or by any third party acting
on your behalf or at your direction, any costs incurred by Company (including legal fees and
expenses) in connection therewith may, in addition to its other remedies, be deducted by
Company from any monies otherwise payable to you.
X. If in Company’s reasonable business judgment it elects to engage an attorney to review
potential Improper Conduct or review and/or respond to any third-party allegation of Improper
Conduct by you or associated with your account or Recordings, Company shall, in its sole
discretion, have the right to deduct from your account or charge any alternate payment method

customers. In addition, you agree that Company and/or its suppliers will have the right to
supplement existing artwork necessary to complete the packaging for discs-on-demand.
Reasonable efforts will be made to provide you with approval rights over such artwork, but in the
event that you object to any such artwork your only remedy shall be to (a) provide appropriate

pooled in an interest-bearing bank account with the Net Income of other World Entertainment
Resource Company customers until you withdraw such funds. You agree that you will not
receive interest or other earnings on the Net Income that Company handles as your agent and
places in such pooled account. In consideration for your use of the Services, you irrevocably
transfer and assign to Company any ownership right that you may have in any interest that may
accrue on Net Income held in such pooled account. In addition to or instead of earning interest
on such pooled account, Company may receive a reduction in fees or expenses charged for
banking services by the banks that hold your Net Income.

streaming media player, iPhone application or other so-called widgets or applications (the

in the making of the Recordings and all payments that may be required under collective
bargaining agreements or pursuant to any statutory schemes.
(b) For digital download sales in the United States, your payment typically includes the

payment includes a publishing portion that covers both the mechanical and public performance
royalties. If you do not own or control the underlying composition(s) in your sound recording(s),
it is your obligation to pay these publishing royalties to the person or entity that does. Outside of
the United States, Company customarily requires Consumer Stores to secure and pay for music
publishing licenses (and such license fees may or may not be deducted by the Consumer Store
concerned from the proceeds payable to Company). If any Consumer Store outside of the United
States does not agree to secure and pay for music publishing licenses, Company shall have the
right, in its sole discretion, to either (i) decline to license such Consumer Store or (ii) assume the
responsibility to clear and pay for the music publishing licenses required in connection with
such Consumer Store’s Sales, which license fees Company shall have the right to deduct from
amounts payable to you hereunder. To the extent that Company is required or elects, in its sole
