I understand and acknowledge that I shall not receive any monetary compensation or any other remuneration for my participation and/or appearance in connection with the Program, any Activity, the casting/audition of the Program and/or for the exercise of any other rights granted by me herein. I further acknowledge and agree that none of Producer's rights under this release are in any way contingent or dependent upon Producer including me as a participant in the Program. In consideration of Producer considering me as a potential participant in the Program and for the opportunity to possibly appear on television, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, I hereby acknowledge and agree as follows:
(a) Likeness and Performance: I hereby consent to Producer taping, photographing, filming and/or other recording of, use and reuse of my name, likeness, caricature, voice (including, without limitation, my speaking, singing, rapping voice) personality, image, actions, personal experiences, biographical information, biographical material, and life story (collectively “Likeness”). I further agree that Producer may tape, photograph, film and otherwise record, depict, portray and represent my Likeness, my actions, performances, exploits, events, incidents, situations and experiences contained in or associated with my participation in any Activity and/or the Program (including, without limitation, in connection with the casting and auditioning for the Program), any material or information given by me or anyone else or material submitted by me whether in any interview, tape, disc, documents, text, photographs, videos or otherwise, and my voice and conversation, including quotes, paraphrases, sounds and any performance by me of musical composition(s) in connection therewith (all of the foregoing, my “Performance”), for use in and/or in connection with the Program and the Productions (as defined below). Without limiting the foregoing, any name used in connection with any portrayal of me in or in connection with the Program or any of the Productions may be fictitious or my real name. Notwithstanding anything contained in this agreement or any related documents provided to me by Producer, I understand and agree that Producer has no obligation to include me in any Activity or the Program, to choose me to participate in the Program, to include the Activity or me in the Program, or to produce or exploit the Program.
(b) Producer's Instructions/Further Documents: I will accept as final any and all decisions made by Producer on any and all matters (including, without limitation, the audition/casting process and participant selection). I understand that my failure to comply with any such rules and/or instructions as provided to me by Producer may result in my immediate disqualification from further consideration to become a participant in the Program, in Producer’s sole discretion. I acknowledge and agree that Producer is in no way obligated to grant me an audition, regardless of either my place in the audition line or any prior statements or assurances made to me by Producer or its employees, agents or vendors. I further acknowledge and agree that Producer, may, at any time and in its sole discretion, alter the audition and participant selection process in any manner. I agree to execute such other documentation, releases and agreements as Producer shall request from me from time to time, at its sole discretion, including, without limitation, a long-form participant agreement in the event Producer selects me as a participant in the Program.
(c) Ownership of Performance/Program: I agree that Producer shall be the exclusive owner of all copyright and other rights in and to the Program and my Performance and will be able to use them forever and throughout the universe, and to license others to use them, in any manner Producer wishes and in any and all media, manners and/or platforms now known or hereafter discovered or developed, in or in connection with the Program and/or in theatrical motion pictures, television programs, theatrical stage presentations, radio, wireless content, internet programming, and any and all other audio, visual, audio-visual and/or print works and productions of any kind or description, now known or hereafter devised (collectively “Productions”), whether related to or in connection with the Program or not. I further agree that Producer may use and license others to use the Performance and/or excerpts or reproductions therefrom, and my Likeness in the Program, in any related or unrelated derivative versions and/or uses of the Program (including, without limitation, any serialization(s), translation(s) and/or adaptation(s) thereof), in Productions and in and in connection with the advertising, marketing and promotion of the Program, Productions (including over the Internet), Producer and/or VMN (and any of its affiliated networks) in any and all media, manners and platforms, including, without limitation, in and in connection with merchandising and commercial tie-ins. I acknowledge that Producer may record my Likeness and Performance by way of open or hidden microphones and/or cameras at any and in the vicinity of all locations in which any Activity takes place (including, without limitation, the auditions or tryouts for the Program). I acknowledge and agree that the Program or any part thereof (including without limitation my Likeness and/or Performance) can be edited, cut, added to, adapted, dubbed, modified and/or rearranged at Producer’s sole and absolute discretion, and may be used as part of or separate from the Program. Without limiting the foregoing, I acknowledge that Producer may juxtapose any recordings of my Performance with any other part of the recording of my Performance in the Program or otherwise, and alter the sequence of events or of any questions posed and/or answers given in connection with my Performance and the Program. I acknowledge that the use of my Likeness, and/or Performance in the Program could be embarrassing, disparaging, surprising, of an unfavorable nature, factual or fictional, or portray me in a false light. I hereby consent to any such use and acknowledge and agree that the Released Claims (as defined below) include any and all claims which I may be otherwise entitled to as a result of such use of my Likeness and/or Performance. I understand and acknowledge that my appearance and participation with the Program and/or Productions does not fall under the jurisdiction of any collective bargaining agreements, and that I shall not be entitled to any residuals or any other types of payments in connection with the Program, Productions or Producer’s use of my Likeness and/or Performance as provided herein.
