In full and complete consideration of Asia TV USA Ltd., doing business as Zee TV (together with its designees, parent companies, affiliates, agents and assigns, "Producer") allowing me to audition for a spot as a participant in the new season of the television series entitled "Dance India Dance" (the "Program"), without any further consideration due from Producer or any third party to me, and with the understanding that Producer, in its sole discretion, may choose whether or not to include me in the Program, I hereby agree as follows:
I grant to Producer, and its successors, licensees and assigns, the irrevocable right, but not the obligation, with or without my knowledge, to film, tape and/or photograph, record, exhibit, edit and otherwise use my appearance, name, likeness, voice, singing voice, conversation, sounds and biographical data (collectively, "Record or Recording") on or in connection with the Program in any manner in Producer's sole election and discretion, which use shall not entitle me to receive any compensation whatsoever.
I agree that Producer is the sole owner of the Program and of all results and proceeds of the Recording, including, but not limited to, all film, tape, photography and/or recording of my appearance thereon. Producer, its successors, assigns, and licensees, forever and throughout the universe, shall have the right to use the foregoing and any portion thereof in any and all media, whether now known or hereafter devised, including, without limitation, motion pictures, television, the Internet and print, and in connection with the advertising, sale, promotion, marketing, merchandising, distribution, publicizing and all other types of exploitation of the Program or any part thereof, or in any manner whatsoever.
I agree that Producer shall have the unrestricted right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to edit the Recordings and the content and text of the Program in any manner.
In addition to the rights granted elsewhere in this Release, I understand and agree that, if my appearance, name, likeness, voice, dancing, conversation, sounds and/or biographical data are used in connection with the Program, I may be required, at Producer's election, to enter into either or both of the following agreements with Producer and/or Producer's designee(s), the terms of which shall be subject to good faith negotiation: (a) an agreement for the management of my career in the entertainment industry (including, but not limited to, my acting, dancing, or other services); and (b) an agreement for the use of my name, likeness and biography in connection with advertising, endorsements, merchandising, and/or sponsorship. Even if I sign such agreement(s) I understand and agree that such agreement(s) shall become fully effective only at the election of Producer and/or Producer's Designee(s) and that neither shall have the obligation to use my services thereunder. I understand that, if I am asked to participate in the Program, as of the date I arrive at the production site, I will be require to represent and warrant that: (i) I am not a party to any management and/or talent agent representation contract, music recording or other performance contract (either alone or as a member of a talent group), acting contract, modeling contract, songwriting contract, merchandising agreement, or any other arrangement which prevents me, or might prevent me, from entering into any contracts described in (a)and (b) of this Paragraph 4, and (ii) I will not enter into any such agreement(s) without Producer's prior written consent, in its sole absolute discretion. I acknowledge that Producer may require me to sign further documents as a condition of my participation in the Program.
I understand that I may reveal, and other parties may reveal, information about me that is of a personal, private, embarrassing or unfavorable nature, which information may be factual and/or fictional. I further understand that my appearance, depiction and/or portrayal in the Program may be disparaging, defamatory, embarrassing or of an otherwise unfavorable nature which may expose me to public ridicule, humiliation or condemnation. I acknowledge and agree that Producer shall have the right (a) to include any or all such information and appearances, depiction or portrayals in any manner whatsoever in any and all media now known or hereafter devised, or for any other purpose, throughout the universe in perpetuity, and I hereby waive any claims I may have against any third party arising out of or related to the dissemination of any of the foregoing.
In the event that I perform or display any original material on the Program that has been created or otherwise controlled by me (for example, music, choreography, photography, lyrics, clothing etc., collectively called the "Material"), I hereby grant to Producer, without charge, all rights necessary to perform and/or display such Material on the Program, and the rights required to exploit the Program and the ancillary rights therein, inclusive of the Material, in any and all media now known or hereafter devised, and for any other purpose, throughout the universe in perpetuity.
I agree to follow all Producer's rules, direction and instructions in all matters relating to the Program, which rules are subject to change, at any time, at Producer's sole discretion. I will accept any and all decisions of Producer on discretionary matters (including, but not limited to, the audition process and contestant selection) as final and acknowledge that the interest of the Program shall override those of any participant, including myself. I agree that my selection to participate as a contestant on the Program is within Producer's sole discretion and Producer is not obligated to grant me a spot. I acknowledge that Producer reserves the right, exercisable at any time in its sole and absolute discretion, to disqualify me from the Program should I, at any stage, supply untruthful, inaccurate or misleading personal information, fail to abide by the rules or regulations of the Program, or for any other reason or for no reason at all. If I am selected, I agree that Producer is not obligated to have me appear on, or to broadcast my appearance on, the Program, and that Producer may disqualify me at any time in its sole discretion.
I recognize that Producer is relying on my representations herein and that a breach by me hereunder would cause Producer irrevocable injury and damages that cannot reasonably or adequately be compensated by damages in an action at law; and, therefore, I hereby expressly agree that Producer shall be entitled to injunctive and other equitable relief to prevent and/or cure any breach or threatened breach of this Release by me.
I hereby release, discharge, and hold harmless Producer, all Program sponsors, production personnel for the Program, participating distributors or exhibitors of the Program, advertising agencies, corporate sponsors, or any person or entity connected with the production, administration or judging of the auditions for the Program, or any of the parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, agents and representatives of any of the foregoing entities, and the officers, directors, employees, agents, and representatives of each of the foregoing (collectively, the "Released Parties"), from any and all liability or claims arising out of or in any way resulting from my participation in the Program and the use or reuse of my appearance, name, voice, singing voice, likeness and/or biographical information. I agree not to make any claim against Producer or the Released Parties as a result of my participation in the Program and in connection with any use or reuse of my appearance, voice, singing voice, likeness and/or biographical information (including, without limitation, any claim based upon defamation or invasion of privacy and/or publicity).
In addition, I agree to indemnify Producer and the other Released Parties, and to hold each of them harmless, from any and all liability, claim, action, damage, expense (including reasonable attorneys fees), and loss of any kind caused by or arising out of any statement, action or failure to act by me during or in connection with my participation in the Program. In no event shall I have any right to injunctive or other equitable relief against any of the Released Parties in connection with the Program.
I acknowledge that there is a possibility that, after my execution of this Release, I will discover facts or incur or suffer claims which were unknown or unsuspected at the time this Release was executed and which, if known by me at that time, may have materially affected my decision to execute this Release. I acknowledge and agree that by reason of this Release, I am assuming any risk of such unknown facts and such unknown and unsuspected claims.
I affirm that neither I, nor anyone acting for me, gave or agreed to give anything of value to any member of the production staff, anyone associated in any manner with Producer, or any representative of any television network or station for Producer's undertaking hereunder. I understand that Producer's policy prohibits such payments, and further understand that it is a federal offense, unless disclosed to Producer prior broadcast, for any such arrangement or my acceptance or agreement to accept anything of value to promote any product, service or my venture on the air. I am also aware that it is an offense to use any prepared material containing such a promotion where I know the writer received consideration for it and to fail to disclose this information if any person attempts to induce me to violate the foregoing prohibition or to do anything dishonest.
I agree to keep all information related to the Program in strictest confidence, and not to disclose, discuss or use such information for any purpose whatsoever, or to authorize any third party to do the same, without Producer's prior written approval in its sole and absolute discretion. I shall not directly or indirectly issue or permit the issuance of any publicity whatsoever with respect to the Program in any way at any time without Producer's prior written approval, in its sole and absolute discretion, in each instance.
