Licence to Copy
This generous licence agreement upon purchase granted by Note Perfect will permit the purchaser to duplicate purchased CDs and DOWNLOADED FILES as audio or data CDs
and on flash drives for distribution to their choir on the following terms.
All purchases have the potential to have a licence to copy within the owners singing organisation* only, and will be granted to the following categories. *(A singing organisation is termed as a choir or singing group, within any organisation).
For Choirs :
Individual Names who purchase choir CDs or Downloads (IE The person who purchases - e.g. John Doe - Even personally owed copies will be licensed to copy within the owners singing organisation).
Church / Choral or Singing Organisation* Names (IE St. John's Episcopal Church - Townsname / Townsname Chorale / Brightwater Singers etc).
School / University / Educational Institutions Music Departments. (We are proud that many of these Institutions regularly use our work).
For Soloist :
Individuals who purchase Soloist CDs or Downloads generally do not need to copy their purchase to others. For this reason we will generally not issue a licence to copy. However we will happily do so without charge on application, provided it is with the singers own singing organisation. Please provide your Note Perfect Order Number as proof of purchase.
A licence will be provided automatically for soloist items with combined purchases that include items for choirs.
In a broad sense, most people and purchases can fall into these categories, however there are exceptions listed at the end of this page.

An actual photocopy or scan of the licence sheet must accompany every CD/Tape
Memory Device, and include the name of the original owner and licence number. This is supplied in the CD case or in the case of downloads, provided by email normally within 2 business days, since this still has to be manually prepared; however feel free to start the process of making distribution copies for your choir. Copies must not be passed on to other choirs or singing organisations other that the one with whom you are affiliated.
This licence permits the owner to make adequate back ups of the recording for safeguard.
Apart from an individual purchaser changing the choir that they belong to or a choir changing their name above, The recording (music files or CDs) and Licence is not transferable and must not be sold or passed on to another choir. It may not be a gift unless it was a gift as the reason for purchase, where the name of the recipient should be specified at the time of purchase.
The act of purchasing is deemed as a binding agreement to this licence.
The licence is granted to the purchaser and not to the persons to whom the music are distributed.
This Licence may be changed or withdrawn at any time without notice, but will not effect already purchased downloads or CD's (i.e. If you hold a licence it will remain valid).

NB. We will not issue licences to Company Names or organisations that clearly have nothing to do with music. (IE. Coolwind Air Conditioning INC / Hartborough City Council etc, unless it is adequately explained as to their interest - (This is why we need a name of an Individual / church / singing / or educational institution). So if you are purchasing through a company (as some people do) please provide an Individual Name, Church, Music Organisation, or Educational Institution, there is a facility to add a message at check out, or you can email us.
