Please remember that if you have a contractual relationship with an organization that controls rights to the content you create, such as a record label or publishing company, you should make sure that you are not in violation of that relationship by sharing that music on the FruitLab Platform.

4. How This Policy Impacts You

If you violate this policy by uploading musical content without first securing the necessary rights, this will constitute a material breach of our Terms of Use and Community Guidelines.

You may be subject to a takedown notice from music rights holders and we may also take action under our Community Guidelines and / or our Terms of Use. In addition, we may mute any videos that contravenes this policy or if our automated content filtering systems detect that audio in a video contains potentially unauthorised music. If you have the necessary rights to share music in your video, we want to ensure that your video is not muted unnecessarily. To appeal any muted audio please contact us at support@fruitlab.com
