You acknowledge and accept that the prices of royalty backed NFTs are volatile and that the price may/and or will be influenced by activities outside of the control of anotherblock.

anotherblock does not represent, guarantee or warrant the accuracy and fairness of the price of any Subject NFT sold on the Platform.

You will only be owning the right to receive DSP Royalties

You acknowledge and accept that owning a Subject NFT does not mean that NFT Owner owns any part of the musical composition in the Recording, any part of the Recording itself, any copyright in or to the Recording, or any rights other than the right to receive the NFT Owner Royalty, which solely consists of a part of the DSP Royalties.

There is no guarantee to receive any DSP Royalties

By owning a Subject NFT you acknowledge and accept that it is no guarantee that you will receive any minimum amount of DSP Royalties from exploitations of the Recording, and that royalties payable for exploitations of the Recording are dependent on the constantly varying popularity and exploitation frequency of the Recording, and that such exploitation patterns quickly change in the music industry.

The Payment of DSP Royalties is due to Rightsholder’s agreement with third parties

You acknowledge and agree that the payment of DSP Royalties is fully subject to the Rightsholder’s relevant agreements with third party licensees, distributors and record labels and any reductions, delays or other calculation provisions applicable to the Rightsholder under such third party agreements.

You acknowledge and agree that any profit or loss arising from fluctuation in the exchange rate between currencies shall be for the NFT Owner’s account and risk, and that neither Rightsholder nor anotherblock has any liability whatsoever in relation to currency fluctuations.

Gas fees fluctuation

All transactions on the Platform, including without limitation to minting, purchasing and claiming of DSP Royalties, are facilitated by smart contracts existing on the blockchain. Each blockchain generally requires the payment of a transaction fee (a “Gas Fee”) for each transaction that occurs on a blockchain. The value of the Gas Fees is unpredictable and may vary from transaction to transaction and is out of control of anotherblock or the Platform.

You acknowledge that under no circumstances will a transaction on the Platform be invalidated, revocable or otherwise unenforceable on the basis that the Gas Fee for the given transaction was unknown, too high, or otherwise unacceptable to you. Further, You acknowledge and agree that a Gas Fee is non-refundable under all circumstances.

anotherblock relies on third-party providers

You acknowledge that the Platform will rely on third-party providers to perform the transactions with respect to Subject NFTs. If the terms and conditions or pricing of such providers change; if anotherblock is unable to maintain a good relationship with such providers; or if anotherblock violates or cannot comply with the terms and conditions of such providers, access to and use of the Platform will suffer.
