Last updated: June 13, 2022
Thank you for using The Coda Collection. These Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) govern your receipt and use of the Services (defined below). If you do not agree to all of these Terms, you are not authorized to receive or use the Services.
IMPORTANT! - IF THERE IS A DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND US, THAT DISPUTE IS SUBJECT TO MANDATORY ARBITRATION RATHER THAN COURT PROCEEDINGS. THESE TERMS REQUIRE ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, WHICH MEANS THAT YOU MAY NOT SEEK RELIEF IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT. THESE TERMS SET FORTH SPECIFIC REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU. PLEASE SEE SECTIONS 12 AND 14 BELOW TO LEARN MORE.
1. The Services
Legacy Music Partners, LLC doing business as The Coda Collection (“Coda”, “we”, or “us”) provides an online video service that makes available a wide variety of audiovisual content about music and other topics (collectively, the “Content”). We also provide an e-commerce platform through which you can purchase merchandise (the “Store”). The online video service, the Content, the Store, the player for viewing the Content (the “Player”) and any other products, features, tools, materials, or other services (including third-party branded services) offered from time to time by Coda through a variety of Interfaces (defined below) are referred to collectively as the “Services”. The term “Interfaces” means, collectively, the codacollection.co website (together with any other website provided by us, the “Coda Site”), applications, and other places where any Services are available, including websites and applications of Coda’s third-party distribution partners and other websites where users or website operators are permitted to embed or have otherwise licensed the Player.
By accessing or using any portion of the Services through any Interface (including by visiting the The Coda Collection Site or by downloading or launching any Coda-provided application), you accept and agree to these Terms. If you access or use the Services as part of or in connection with any third party services (including but not limited to Amazon Prime and Prime Video), your use of such third party services will be subject to terms and conditions applicable to that third party service.
The Services are not intended to be used by children without involvement and approval of a parent or guardian. If you are under the age of 13, you are not permitted to register with us or provide your personal information to us. If you are at least 13 and under 18 years of age (or under the applicable age of majority in your state or territory of residence), you may register with Coda, but only if you have the consent of your parent or guardian, including agreement to these Terms on your behalf, and for clarity, you may only modify an account, or associated profiles, with the consent of your parent or guardian. Please note that you must be at least 18 years of age in order to purchase certain Services.
2. Changes to These Terms
We are always looking for ways to improve the Services. We may need to alter or discontinue the Services, or certain parts of it, to make performance or security improvements, change functionality and features, make changes to comply with law, or prevent illegal activities on or abuse of our systems. These changes may affect all users, some users or even an individual user. Whenever reasonably possible, we will provide notice when we discontinue or make material changes to the Services that will have an adverse impact on the use of the Services. However, you understand and agree that there will be times when we make such changes without notice, such as where we feel we need to take action to improve the security and operability of the Services, prevent abuse, or comply with legal requirements.
3. Access and Use

13. Notice and Procedure for Claims of Copyright Infringement
If you believe that any Content, User Generated Content, or other material provided through the Services, including through a link, infringes your copyright, you should notify The Coda Collection of your infringement claim in accordance with the procedure set forth below.
We will process each notice of alleged infringement that The Coda Collection receives and take appropriate action in accordance with applicable intellectual property laws. A notification of claimed copyright infringement should be emailed to Coda’s copyright agent at email@example.com (subject line: “DMCA Takedown Request”). You may also contact us by mail at:
Attention: Copyright Agent
Legacy Music Partners, LLC
655 Deerfield Rd., Suite 139
Deerfield, Illinois 60015
To be effective, the notification must be in writing and contain the following information: (i) an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive copyright interest; (ii) a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed; (iii) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Services that is reasonably sufficient to enable The Coda Collection to identify and locate the material; (iv) how The Coda Collection can contact you, such as your address, telephone number, and email address; (v) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement by you that the above information in your notice is accurate and under penalty of perjury that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner or the owner of an exclusive right in the material. Emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for purposes other than communication about copyright infringement may not be answered. The Coda Collection has a policy of terminating repeat infringers in appropriate circumstances.
14. ARBITRATION OF CLAIMS
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS IN IMPORTANT WAYS. If you have dispute with us, you agree to first discuss any issue informally with us for at least 60 days before commencing an arbitration proceeding. To do that, please send your full name and contact information, your concern and your proposed solution by mail to us at: Legacy Music Partners, LLC, 655 Deerfield Rd., Suite 139, Deerfield, Illinois 60015 Attn: Legal Department. If we would like to discuss an issue with you, we will contact you using the email address you provided when you registered for The Coda Collection.
YOU AND THE CODA COLLECTION AGREE TO ARBITRATE IN EACH OF OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES ONLY, NOT AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF A CLASS, AND EACH OF US EXPRESSLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO FILE A CLASS ACTION OR SEEK RELIEF ON A CLASS BASIS. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of you, The Coda Collection, and any other parties to the arbitration or proceedings.
For your convenience, arbitration may be conducted in-person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. Proceedings that cannot be conducted through the submission of documents, by phone, or online, will take place in Chicago, Illinois. Rather than force everyone to visit us in Illinois, if you can demonstrate that arbitration in Illinois would create an undue burden to you, you are free to initiate the arbitration in your home state. It is important that you understand that the arbitrator’s decision will be binding and final (except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act) and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Please note that nothing in this section shall be construed as consent by The Coda Collection to the jurisdiction of any other court with regard to disputes not covered by these Terms.
In accordance with the JAMS Rules, the party initiating the arbitration (either you or The Coda Collection) is responsible for paying the filing fee. However, if the arbitrator issues you an award of damages and: (i) that award is greater than the amount of our last written settlement offer; or (ii) if we did not make a settlement offer, then in addition to paying for any JAMS Case Management Fees and all professional fees for the arbitrator’s services, we will reimburse you for the filing fees you incurred.
15. Limitation of Time to Bring a Claim
16. General Provisions
International Use. We are a company based in the United States and offer our Services to users in the United States. Coda’s goal is to bring you as much Content as is legally available. But we are limited by the rights that our content programmers grant to us. Access to the Services from locations where The Coda Collection does not have rights, that are not permitted by the terms of your subscription, or where The Coda Collection does not make the Services available is prohibited.
Export Controls. Software and the transmission of applicable technical data, if any, in connection with the Services are subject to export controls. You agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding software and the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside.
Choice of Law and Forum. These Terms are governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Illinois without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law. To the extent that the arbitration provision outlined in Section 14 is not applicable (e.g., when confirming an arbitration award), you and The Coda Collection agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in Cook County, Illinois.
Coda’s decision to delay exercising or enforcing any right or remedy under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or remedy with respect to any party. Even if The Coda Collection acts in a way that appears to you to be inconsistent with these Terms, Coda’s action shall not be deemed a waiver or constructive amendment of these Terms.
From time to time, we may communicate with you about the Services and these Terms electronically (e.g., emails to your registered email address, notices on The Coda Collection Site and other Interfaces). You consent to receive electronic communications from The Coda Collection and further agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures, and other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any applicable legal notification requirements. We recommend that you keep a copy of any electronic communications we send to you for your records.
Survival. The provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive cancellation or deletion of your account shall survive such cancellation or deletion.
17. The Coda Collection Community Guidelines
Define the platform
What is The Coda Collection?
The Coda Collection is a multi-media company founded by a team of legendary musicians, music industry veterans, and entrepreneurs that enables fans to see the most iconic moments and artists in music with a new perspective. The Coda Collection breaks down into two key parts:
A subscription Amazon Prime Video channel that will house an exclusive, curated selection of hundreds of the most powerful concerts, documentaries, and episodic series in music.
Our web and apps that bring to life the context that surrounds each of the video titles on our platform.
What are Collections?
With The Coda Collection, we are not merely aggregating films that represent the most iconic moments in music. Rather we enlist prominent music writers to write something uniquely intriguing about that moment, that video, that artist. Think of these as the “Staff Picks” write ups that used to give personal and insightful takes into the books/albums that the staff of music/book stores used to recommend back in the day.
How can I get involved with writing for Coda?
If you’re interested in contributing to Coda, send over some examples of published work and your article ideas to email@example.com. We unfortunately can’t respond to every inbound request, but we will be in touch if there’s an opportunity that’s right for you.
