The following is the license granted to anyone wishing to hear or use our music or derivative works. It is greatly inspired from the GNU General Public License that applies for programs. In a summary, I might say that it gives you the right to copy and distribute the music freely, that is, without a fee. In fact, it even forbids you to charge for it, if unauthorized. This is made for us to control what our music is used for and by whom. Another thing is that we allow people to edit and modify our music to taste (read: resample) without any royalties, provided that we agree with the edition itself (read: there won't be any DJ Dance Mix '01 with Orange Seeds, Na!)

We would like to hear what you think about this license. Please mail us any comment you have regarding this (or anything else.. :).


The Group
The Orange Seeds
The Music
Music written, played, recorded or mastered by members of Orange Seeds


  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Music as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License; and give any other recipients of the Music a copy of this License along with the Music.
    You may not charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy unless otherwise explicitly authorized by a member of the Group. However, you may charge a fee for the physical media on which the copy is transferred.
  2. You may not use or publish the Music for promotion of any other event, opinion, product or anything unless otherwise authorized by the Group.
  3. You may modify your copy or copies of the Music or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Music, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
    1. You must cause the modified Music to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
    2. You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Music or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
    3. You have have been explicitly authorized by the group to do so. (Send us a postcard!)
  4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Music except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Music is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
  5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute the Music or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Music (or any work based on the Music), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Music or works based on it.
  6. Each time you redistribute the Music (or any work based on the Music), the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Music subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.
  7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Music at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Music by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Music.
