A Share gives the right to a certain percent of a song, EP, album, or bundle of songs’ copyright revenue as collected and administered by a CMO or distributor over a pre-set time period.

 

Regarding the musical assets up for investment and trade on the Service that are under the collective management of the Swedish PRO Stim: Read more on General Terms and Conditions for Affiliation with Stim here. You can also read more about the type of revenues Stim collects on behalf of its members here.

 

Regarding the musical assets up for investment and trade on the Service that are under a distributor, we refer to each distributor’s own terms they have agreed on with the Copyright Owner.  

 

The value of each Musical Asset has been estimated by Riteband AB’s valuation model and divided into shares. The value of the Musical Asset has been confirmed and approved by the Copyright Owner.   

 

These are the terms you agree to when buying Shares of a Musical Asset:

  • The value of a New share is fixed and has been determined by the Valuation Model’s estimation and confirmed by the Copyright Owner.

  • Users can buy a minimum of one Share of a Musical Asset. There is no maximum amount of Shares that a User can buy.

  • The value of a Trading share is priced at the current market price, i.e. the latest price in a transaction between a seller and a buyer on the Service. 

  • You are responsible for reading and taking the responsibility of understanding the Prospectus associated with a Share before making a commitment to buy.

  • Riteband AB reserves the right not to approve transfers.

 

 

 TRADING SHARES ON TANGY MARKET

 

When all New shares have sold, they become Trading, which implies everyone holding shares can sell to any User on the market.

RISKS

 

Musical Assets that are valued and up for trade on Riteband AB’s Service are not guaranteed to gain success and copyright revenue. Riteband AB’s valuation of the song’s future revenue is solely an estimation and shall not be considered as the precise and accurate truth.

 

The valuation model is based on historical data of songs’ revenues and other algorithms.

 

In the case where the valuation model estimates a lower worth than what the Royalty Payment later proves to be, this is beyond Riteband AB’s control and a risk that the Copyright Owner has agreed to take in the agreement made between the two parties.
