Noteflight Marketplace allows you to buy and sell music as Noteflight notation files. Sell your original scores or create your own arrangements of over two million songs in our catalog. The selling guidelines are below. Be sure to read the Noteflight Marketplace Terms of Service for all the fine details. Happy music making!
1. General Guidelines
Noteflight Premium users who are 18 years of age or older and have a US bank account are eligible to sell scores on Noteflight Marketplace. Sign up to be a seller by verifying your bank account, providing your contact information, and accepting the Noteflight Marketplace Terms of Service.
Buyers may create their own editable Noteflight copies of your score. The composer, songwriter, arranger, copyright notice, and title are not editable for copies of purchased scores. This ensures the score always gives proper credit to the writers and owners of the work.
Adapting Purchased Scores
Editable copies are made available for the buyer’s personal use for the number of authorized performers, and adaptations are only allowed in the Noteflight editor. Purchasing a score on Noteflight Marketplace does not permit buyers to adapt your work using another notation program. All applicable copyright laws apply.
Noteflight will pay your total sales commissions every month at a minimum payout amount of $20. Any payouts under $20 will be processed every three months. Payments are made via direct deposit to your bank account or debit card. Commissions are pending until eight days after each purchase, which allows time for the charge to be processed and cleared by the credit card merchant. You may track your pending and current payout amount at all times in your Noteflight account.
Your Scores vs Marketplace Scores
When you place a score for sale, the score is moved from “Your Scores” to the “Marketplace Scores” section in your Noteflight homepage. We recommend making a copy of your score before placing it for sale so that you can retain an editable copy in your account. You will also be able to make editable copies of your Marketplace scores while it is for sale.
Marketing Your Scores
We encourage you to share your Noteflight Marketplace scores through as many channels as you can. Market your scores by linking to them on social media, on your website, or sharing with your email list. The Marketplace tab of your Noteflight user profile provides your own listing of your scores for sale, which you can use to promote all of your works.
Disputes of Arrangements
All arrangements sold on Noteflight Marketplace are subject to disputes of ownership. The score seller is solely responsible for their content. Noteflight does not arbitrate any disputes nor verify the copyright status of any work; instead, Noteflight will facilitate communication between score owners in the case of disputes.
If the owner of an original work or arrangement disputes another score, the disputed score will be removed and its owner notified. By request, the two parties can be put in touch and may resolve their dispute legally. To reinstate a disputed score, Noteflight must be provided with written legal notice from a court or arbitration.
If a score is disputed by a person not claiming ownership or copyright of the work, then the disputed score will not be removed but the score owner will be notified. Only a score or work owner may generate a dispute that results in a takedown of another score.
Noteflight also reserves the right to remove any score from Noteflight Marketplace without notice and for any reason.
Stop Selling Your Score
You may choose to stop selling your score at any time. Any buyers who have previously purchased your score will still be able to use and purchase additional usage of your work.
