LIMITED LICENSING RELEASE:
In order to provide the Client with the best service and support at reasonable pricing, Aerial Canvas does not sell exclusive rights to the Work Product, content, or intellectual property produced. Aerial Canvas licenses their use. The fee quoted is dependent on (1) payment of the invoice in full prior to the scheduled production call time, and (2) using the video/photographs only as indicated.
Only the Client has permission to use the delivered photos and video on any electronic or printed forms of advertisement for the promotion of the listing.
Builders, Stagers, Designers, or “Third Parties” that wish to use Photographs or Video must contact Aerial Canvas directly for licensing and fees.
For image integrity and quality control Aerial Canvas asks that photographs and video not be heavily altered once delivered. Re-sizing is an exception.
Photographs and video cannot/will not be made available to another real estate agent or person who takes over an expired or withdrawn listing.
The Work Product provided by Aerial Canvas may be uploaded to any social media or MLS listing services by the Client, solely for the promotion of the listing during the pendency of this Agreement. However, regardless of any terms and conditions of the MLS, at no time does this Agreement provide the right to transfer copyright, licenses, or any other exclusive rights as provided by the Copyright Act 17 U.S.C § 106.
I hereby waive any right to inspect or approve the finished photographs or electronic matter that may be used in conjunction with them now or in the future, whether that use is known to me or unknown, and I waive any right to royalties or other compensation arising from or related to the use of my image and likeness.
I am 20 years of age or older and I am competent to contract in my own name. I have read this release before signing below, and I fully understand the contents, meaning and impact of this release. I understand that I am free to address any specific questions regarding this release by submitting those questions in writing prior to signing, and I agree that my failure to do so will be interpreted as a free and knowledgeable acceptance of the terms of this release.
PROPERTY OWNER APPROVAL:
The Client may need to obtain a written signed approval from the property owner prior to servicing or producing the Work Product. Aerial Canvas can provide (at request) a written approval form. Aerial Canvas makes every effort to maintain the privacy of the property owner's neighbors. All footage is focused on the property being filmed and Aerial Canvas will do their best to respect the privacy of anyone not directly involved. If necessary, the Client may be required to ask for permission from neighbors before Aerial Canvas begins filming.
If one or more of the provisions contained in the Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. Such provisions shall be revised only to the extent necessary to make them enforceable.
The undersigned further expressly agrees that the forgoing waiver and assumption of risk agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the State of California and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
PAYMENT & LATE FEES:
Payment is due before the project date unless stipulated otherwise for special circumstances. Overdue payments are subject to a $50/month late fee at our discretion. Payments overdue past a month are subject to an additional $50/month or 10%/month late fee at our discretion. Booking a service with us means you agree to and understand the payment schedule on your quote/order and the applicable late fees for non-payment.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF UNDERSTANDING:
I have read the entirety of this Agreement, waiver of liability, assumption of risk, and indemnity agreement, and fully understand its terms. I acknowledge that I am signing the agreement freely and voluntarily, and intend by my signature or decision to proceed with Aerial Canvas servicing or producing the Work Product to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law.
