You may post and/or upload pictures, text, information about yourself (such as your bio), and playlist compilations on the Service (“Your Content”). You represent and warrant to Beats Music that you own or have obtained all rights, licenses, and permissions necessary in order to use and to authorize Beats Music to use Your Content.
Beats Music retains all of the legal rights to control the Service. This means that Beats Music has the absolute right, at its sole discretion, to unilaterally delete anything that is posted on and through any part of the Service. Further, Beats Music retains the right to reclaim any username for any or no reason. Beats Music recognizes that you have significant power and control regarding what you post on the Service. Despite retaining total legal control in the Service, Beats Music has neither the ability nor desire to monitor all posts at all times. And, even if we become aware of a particular post, we may not remove the post when others think that it should be removed. As such, Beats Music assumes no obligation to monitor or control Your Content and any other content posted by Users. You are solely responsible for Your Content that you provide on and/or make available through the Service. Beats Music is not responsible or liable for the accuracy and opinions of what you and other Users post on the Service. We are not liable for any errors, omissions, losses, or damages in and/or to Your Content. To the extent permissible by law, Beats Music is not liable for any of Your Content or any Content posted or otherwise made available on or through the Service by other Users.
By posting, uploading, and/or making available Your Content on or through the Service, you grant to Beats Music, its affiliates (including third party developers), and its successors a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, non-revocable, royalty-free license to use, post, reproduce, share, copy, repost, transmit, make derivative works of, make available, publicly perform, publicly display, or otherwise distribute in connection with the Service and its operations. This may occur after you suspend or terminate your account. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Beats Music, will have the burden of proving that all of Your Content does not violate any laws, including without limitation, infringing any and all rights of any and all third parties. Beats Music does not claim any ownership rights in Your Content and Beats Music is not liable, in any way, for any of Your Content. Beats Music retains all of the legal rights to control the Service.

Beats Music shall have no liability or responsibility to you for any content or materials that may be available to you on the Service that you might find offensive, indecent, or objectionable. Some music recorded after 1985 may be subject to the Recording Industry Association of America ("RIAA") ‘Parental Advisory Label’ (as defined on the RIAA website). If Beats Music has been informed that an album carries the ‘Parental Advisory Label’ (or similar designation) and is available on the Service, it will be labeled with an ‘E’ emblem (denoting "explicit"). The RIAA assigns its Parental Advisory Label to an entire album and not to the individual songs on the album; however, all the individual songs from such labeled albums will also be labeled with an ‘E’ emblem on the Service. Although Beats Music strives to include the ‘E’ emblem with all such material, Beats Music shall have no liability or responsibility for the inadvertent omission thereof.
Beats Music Users include users accessing the Service under a free trial, users accessing the Service under any subscription plan, and users who Beats Music classifies as Curators (collectively, “Users”). All Users are subject to the Beats Music Community Guidelines as follows:
fellow community members.
Everyone in the Beats Music community should feel comfortable sharing whatever kind of music they are into at all times.
We are not here to censor your language, but we reserve the right to moderate or remove comments or images that are detrimental to the community or may be deemed offensive.
as social as you want to be.
We encourage you to post songs, publish playlists, and engage with the community as much as possible. But if you just want to listen, that’s cool too.
- Respect fellow community members.
Do not impersonate community members, curators, artists, or celebrities.
Many of our artists, curators, and celebrities are verified by the Beats Music team. You may not impersonate others in a manner that does or is intended to mislead, confuse, or deceive others.
not post personal information.
Your Beats Music profile can be viewed by anyone in the community, so do not share phone numbers, addresses, billing info, or any information you do not want the community to know.
in username squatting.
Beats Music reserves the right to remove any and all accounts that are inactive for more than six months.
None of your followers want to be bombarded with constant promotional messages. (Besides, doing so will only get you unfollowed.) When in doubt, the best use of Beats Music’s social features is for sharing news, information, thoughts, or music you know your followers will want to hear.
If you see anything in Beats Music that violates these guidelines, please report it to our community team. We will respond as quickly as possible to remove any offensive or infringing content.
