IMPORTANT INFORMATION - ENFORCEMENT PROCEEDINGS IN MUSICAL

The Audit authorities initiated the oversight of Musical Groups (duos, trios, organists, solo artists, etc.).

The goal is to combat piracy, which is still very common in this activity, seriously affecting musicians working legally, authors and producers. .

It is very common in performances certain individuals use midi files, music keyboard styles, MP3 - Backing - Tracks, etc., without having any evidence that they were legally acquired. Usually these music files were copied by friends, downloaded from the net, bought in piracy, etc.
Even though these products were illegal, these "pirates" ended up walking immune in their performances, as the authorities had no practical way to monitor them.

WHAT HAS CHANGED? From now, any musical base, Midi file, Midi-karaoke, music keyboard style, MP3 - Backing - Track, etc, lacks necessarily a legality certificate issued by the producing company. Only this Certificate makes legal musical bases used in spectacles.

The Midiarte.pt, as the only legally produce Midi files and music keyboard styles, is now obliged to pass this Certificate of Legality to its customers. It is this Certificate that proves the legal purchase of products, the copyright payment and your authorization for public viewing.

For each purchase in Midiarte.pt site, the customer receives a Legality Certificate which must then print and enclose with the Midi files or music keyboard styles.
The Certified Legal with all products purchased, is also available on your control panel, when you login. More below have all the information on how to download your Legality Certificate with all products purchased so far.


The authorities require that any Midi file or music keyboard style publicly used, must be described in Legality Certificate.
Always print the certificate and make him keep up with the Midi files or music keyboard styles you purchased.

The Midiarte.pt only be liable for securities listed on Legality Certificate, so seriously advise you to be not on your keyboard, or midi player, any other title which no proper Legality Certificate.

When working with Midi files or music keyboard styles assigned by friends, removed from the net or purchased without a certificate, it risks seriously getting your stuff seized in a show and to end his earlier performance, and then accountable to justice!

The Midiarte.pt welcomes these measures taken by the supervisory authorities will benefit because all the musicians who work with legal and products that were being harmed by others who resorted to midi files and pirates music keyboard styles causing unfair competition.


EUROPE COUNTRIES - INSPECTION

Countries like Switzerland, France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Germany, Spain, etc, all are now working in partnership, governed by the same anti-piracy laws. The Legality certificates are required now to all companies producing musical bases, whether Portuguese or European.

Is acquired midi files, music keyboard styles, MP3 - Backing - Tracks, etc., to any other company in Europe, requires ever pass her Legality certificates because the authorities will ask them to him during an inspection.

Thus, we advise our customers who live and do shows in these countries have always carry the updated Legality certificates.
