Advertising Revenues means all sums received from the sale of advertising inventory on the Stitcher mobile application, less any agency fees, VAT (or its local equivalent) and any withholding taxes.

The amounts owed to Producer ("Producer Advertising Revenue Share") shall be calculated as follow:

Producer Advertising Revenue Share = [((Submitted Content total Stream Time / All Content total Stream Time) X 25%) + ((Submitted Content Starts / All Content total Starts) X 75%))] X 20% X Advertising Revenues.

* All Content is the all submitted content provided by any Partners of Deezer through the online application. * A Monthly Active Listener is an end-user who starts listening to at least one piece of Submitted Content during the month. * Stream Time: listening duration for an end-user who listens to any content (including Submitted Content) on the Stitcher mobile application. * Start: each time an end-user starts to listen to a piece of content (including Submitted Content) regardless of the duration.

Should an advertiser become interested in purchasing advertisement inside any of Submitted Content, Deezer shall present that offer to Producer. Producer, at its sole discretion, may decide whether to accept the offer to purchase advertisement. The economic terms of such an agreement shall be negotiated between Producer and Deezer on a case-by-case basis.

C. Opt Out: At any time, Producer may opt out of any of the Revenue Share programs (Sections III.A III.B) in writing by emailing content@stitcher.com. Such election will become effective on the first day of the subsequent calendar month.

D. Payment: Deezer shall accrue Producer Advertising Revenue Share owed to Producer on a monthly basis and make quarterly payments in dollars to Producer 60 days after the receipt of a valid invoice.

If during any payment period, the Producer Advertising Revenue Share owed to Producer is less than $100, Deezer shall accrue that amount to the Producer's account for future payout.

In the event that Deezer is obliged to withhold any tax from the payments, then the amount of such tax shall be deducted from the gross amounts otherwise payable hereunder and paid by Deezer to the relevant taxation authority. If, for any reason, Deezer has not withheld tax but is required, in relation to any payment, to do so, then such tax shall be treated as an advance recoupable on the quarterly remuneration due to Partner hereunder.

If Producer requests that any portion of the Submitted Content be deleted, replaced, or made inaccessible because such Submitted Content may contain errors, is or could be subject to a third party claim or for any other reasonable business purpose, then Deezer shall remove the particular piece of Submitted Content as soon as practicable, but in any event by the end of five (5) business days following the receipt of such written notice sent to copyright@stitcher.com..
