 The original author of Disco beat once again claimed that he had nothing to do with the lawsuit


Original author of beat, ihaksi

NetEase entertainment reported on February 8th that since Finland musician Ihaksi sent a lawyers letter to Chinese rapper Dong Baoshi, the incident is still in progress. Ihaksi issued a statement on the MV link of the beat (moresun). He said that the authorization sold is still valid and relevant rights cannot be recovered. The unrestricted authorization (that is, the one purchased by Uncle Baoshi) in the contract allows uploading to online platforms and making profits, but additional permission is required for TV, movies and games.

Previously, it was reported that ihaksi did not claim that Dong Baoshis unauthorized use of moresun constituted an infringement, but that someone (Mr. Chen of masima International) recently bought out the exclusive (exclusive) authorization of moresun at a price of $5000, that is to say, Dong Baoshi who had bought unrestricted authorization at $99 could not stop Restricted access to moresun. In fact, wolf disco itself does not have any plagiarism behavior, nor does it infringe any interests of ihaksi before moresun is bought for exclusive use.

Some netizens raised a question in the dispute: the purchase rights and interests written on the website are different from those in the body of the final contract. In his reply to the netizen, he agreed that the description of unrestricted authorization on the beat sales platform was a bit confusing, and did not fully display the licensed content on the quick browsing interface, but the complete contract should still be available for reading. Ihaksi guarantees that he has only sold one exclusive license and believes that people confuse unrestricted license with exclusive license.

On November 2, 2019, Dong Baoshi sent a private letter to ihaksi, hoping to purchase the exclusive license, but it failed. Later, ihaksi sold the exclusive license to Mr. Chen in Taiwan for $5000. Ihaksi explained that he did not know that Dong Baoshi was the one who asked for exclusive authorization in the email, because he did not identify himself in the email. Usually most people only bid about $600 to buy out the copyright, so when the other party asks about the price of exclusive license, he just suggests using the unrestricted license version of $99, unless he insists on buying exclusive license, then give another quotation. At the same time, another man gave him an offer. The offer was for the best bid of the beat, which reached $5000, so he agreed at the time.

Ihaksi also stressed once again that even if the exclusive license has been sold, all previous licenses are still valid, and even those who have obtained the exclusive license cannot sue other people who have previously obtained the unrestricted license for infringement. As long as they dont violate the terms of the contract, the contract is still valid.

Ihaksi also noted that he did not personally initiate a lawsuit and that he would not personally benefit from it, regardless of the outcome of the lawsuit. Before that, he was asked by the exclusive authorization party to take a video with his ID card to prove the author of his beat, but the video was released without his consent, he questioned, and the other party said that he did not imply that he was related to the prosecution. He would like to believe that no one really wants to infringe the copyright. If Dong Baoshi uses the license in the terms of the contract, there will be no problem. But if he breaches the terms, then the party with the exclusive license is likely to act. Ihaksi said he did not want anyone to abuse the license and could provide more evidence of the license if needed by either party.
