Every celeb should know what celebrity footage licensing is so that no one will try to take advantage of them. There are so many things that are contained in this agreement but there are there are some do’s and don’ts that the person who will be taking the license will be expected to know. This will have to be read carefully by the person before they can agree to anything.
All those who want to use a clip that has a particular celeb on it should do so after the person has agreed to and has obtained a written consent to that effect. Whether the celebrity will be paid or not, the agreement should still be made and put down in writing. In the agreement, all the people that are involved will have to put their signatures on it.
For any video, the celeb has the right to decide whether they will have those clips released or not. If they do not want the clips to be released, they can get a court order to stop this from happening. The other option can be to have certain parts of the clips to be released while the unauthorized parts will not be released.
The purpose of getting the agreement is so that both parties who will use the footage will be protected. With all the people that will be involved, they will all have to sign the agreement so that when anything goes wrong later they can go back to the agreement to see what they had agreed upon. There are times when people will get into a tussle with the law because there is no evidence that such an agreement had been reached.
There are times when the person will want money in exchange for the clips or they will want to be paid. If this is the case, there are two things that will have to take place. One, they will have to agree on the amount of money that will be paid. Second, the time that the company or the buyer will use the clips should be agreed upon.
There is room to negotiate what they can give for the clip and what the owner will be asking for. There are so many things that will influence the money that one will pay. This mainly should have to do with things such as the economic condition and whether there will be inflation or not. Whatever the case, the amount that will be given should be the kind of amount that will be worth it.
Since there are different entities that give these licenses, they have different conditions. It will be up to those people that will have them to know the content of the clips. They should also be aware of the consequences that will befall them when the content of the clip is released to the public.
