Payment to Copyright holder for License

Licensee will pay to Licensor 60% of the profit actually received from the Work (the “Payment(s)”). Licensee shall process the Payment to Licensor within fifteen (15) days after the end of each month; however, if the amount owed Licensor is less than five US dollars ($5 USD) in any given month, Licensee reserves the right to carry the Payment over until the amount exceeds five US dollars ($5 USD). If the amount never exceeds five US dollars ($5 USD) or if the Licensee ceases license acquisition operations, then no Payment will come due. Licensee will have no obligation to make any Payments which are reasonably suspected by Licensee, in its sole discretion, to have resulted from fraudulent, misleading or false activities by Licensor. Licensee shall not be responsible for any payments to Licensor for revenue earned in connection with the Licensed Rights but not received by Licensee for any reason (for example due to non-payment or where Licensee does not receive adequate reporting so as to enable Licensee to assign revenue). Licensor may choose to be paid via PayPal, paper check, or electronic bank transfer (the “Payment Method”). Any electronic bank transfer fees will be deducted from the Licensor’s Payment prior to sending. Licensor agrees to provide Licensee all the necessary and accurate information required to process payment (the “Payment Details’) via their preferred Payment Method. Licensor further understands that Payments may be subject to Withholding Tax which will be paid on behalf of Licensor to the appropriate Tax Authority.
