  1. Subject of the work contract

  1.

In the event that the ordering party also orders concerts, the Contractor must provide this at his own expense (including artists’ fees, royalties, hall rentals and music material, etc.) within 6 months of the submission of the work; the customer will be able to decide whether to be a private or public concert. If the Purchaser has special requirements for the auditorium or performing artists, the Contractor will make every effort to comply with it, but the excess costs will be paid by the Customer and a 6-month period after the submission of the work to ensure concert performance may be exceeded.

  2. The customer orders the work as a rule from the types of works published on the site and, optionally, on the basis of their specific requirements; but this offer is only a challenge to a contract and does not guarantee the availability of the work offered. The contract is closed by the confirmation (acceptance) of the order by the Contractor.

  3. Changes to the specification of the work by the contractor after the works contract can be negotiated only on the assumption that work has not been commenced on the works and that, as the case may be, revised price and deadline will be an addendum to the original works contract.

  5. Part of the Contractor’s performance is not the granting of authorization for the public performance and other use of the work that is generally administered by SOZA. However, in the case of recording or concerts, the Contractor shall be responsible for arranging copyrights of artistic works and artistic performances for the purposes of the production of a phonogram or for the purpose of performing concerts.

  6. If the client wishes to put a certain text to music and does not leave the selection to the Contractor, he / she is responsible for the complete settlement of the rights to such a text, except that it would be free work according to the Slovak copyright law.

  2. The customer is required to view the work immediately after its delivery and is obliged to report obvious errors without undue delay after the delivery of the work.

  3.
