    I know some of you on here are in bands yourself. I came across the "Get our of the Garage" promotion that is being put on by Converse and Guitar Center. The terms and conditions of it are so ridiculous and one-sided that our band felt the need to notify others.

    On the surface the promotion sounds good:

    Submit your music and you could win:
    $25,000
    A show at the Fader Fort in Texas
    A 3 song EP Produced by Dev Hynes
    Some free Gear
    Free worldwide digital distribution from TuneCore.


    However the terms and conditions give Guitar Center and Converse (and whoever else maybe associated) the complete right to anything you submit (including music) without your permission or compensation, perpetually. Take a look at them:

    Just want to give a fair warning to anyone who may have seen this and is in a band. Metul.

    So basically they can steal from you. Awesome.
    Thanks for the heads up.
