Selling exclusives beats became a hot topic after Beatstars posted a tweet asking how much exclusive beats should cost. We discuss prices, problems and why most people don’t even understand what an exclusive sale involves. On the subject of copyrights, we also discuss whether or not record labels are greedy for offering bad deals and how desperate producers and recording artists should react to a bad deal.
