  2. There are two (2) types of MyPart Users:
    1. The “Songwriter” which is a User that uploads a “Song” (or several songs) created by the Songwriter to MyPart.com. A Songwriter can be a musician, composer, producer, remix artist, songwriter, agent, publisher, manager and anyone who is a copyright owner of the Song.
    2. The “Recording Artist” which is a User that is an industry player and/or Creative Executives such as a singer, rapper, songwriter, musician or entertainment industry professional, such as a manager, producer, director, artists and repertoire, music publisher, music supervisor, record label, video creator, brand or marketing agency. MyPart has the sole right in its exclusive discretion to determine whether a User may be designated as a Recording Artist and to grant access to the Service to a User that has been designated as a Recording Artist.

  6. At the end of the Viewing Period, MyPart can choose to remove the Song from the selected Recording Artist’s queue, and it may then be uploaded by the Songwriter to another Recording Artist.

  8. Songwriters hereby grant each selected Recording Artist a non-exclusive license to access the Song(s) uploaded by such Songwriter to the selected Recording Artist through the Service during the Viewing Period, and to view, assess, display and perform such Song during the Viewing Period privately for non-commercial purposes only.
