Human-friendly highlights

1. Term Period

This Agreement lasts twelve (12) months from the date that the Content is uploaded to your Channel on LBRY. After that time, your content will continue to be on the LBRY Network under the terms of this agreement for successive 6-month periods; if you decide to revoke your content, it will be taken down within 30 days of LBRY receiving notice from you.

2. Receiving LBRY Credits (LBC)

Receiving LBRY Credits is considered taxable income in the United States, and may be considered taxable income in your country. If you are a citizen of the United States* and receive over $600 worth of LBC, you will also have to complete tax related documentation. We will contact you if you are over this threshold.

3. Promotional rights
