Terms and Conditions
The undersigned grants Fellowship Church (“Producer”) and its designees and assignees the right to use my name, likeness, image, voice, appearance, whether recorded on or transferred to videotape, film, slides, photographs, digital media, digital recording, audio tapes, or other media, now known or later developed (individually and collectively the “Product”). This grant includes without limitation the right to edit, mix, or duplicate and to use or re-use the Product in whole or in part as Producer may elect. Producer or its designee shall have complete ownership of the Product in which I appear, including copyright interests, and I acknowledge that I have no interest or ownership in the Product or the Products’ copyright. I also grant Producer and its designees the right to broadcast, exhibit, market, sell, and otherwise distribute the Product, either in whole or in part(s), and either alone or with other products for commercial or non-commercial television or theater, closed-circuit exhibition, home video distribution or any other purpose that Producer or its designees in their sole discretion may determine. This grant includes the right to use this Product for promoting or publicizing any of the uses. I confirm that I have the right to enter into this Agreement, that I am not restricted by any commitments to third parties, and that Producer has no financial commitment or obligations to me as a result of this Agreement. I hereby give all releases and clearances, copyright and otherwise, necessary for the use of my name, likeness, image, voice, appearance and performance embodied in the Product. I expressly release and indemnify Producer and its officers, employees, agents and designees from any and all claims whether known or unknown arising out of or in any way connected with the above granted uses and representations. The rights granted to Producer herein are perpetual and worldwide. I have read the foregoing and understands its terms and stipulations and agree to all of them. I recognize that Christians are called by scripture to a different standard of resolving their differences (Matthew 18; 1 Corinthians 6). In the event a dispute arises out of, or relates to this Release, the parties shall first make a good faith attempt to settle the dispute by mediation administered by the religious dispute division of Mediation Law Group™ (MLG) or some other Christian dispute resolution service, before commencing arbitration, litigation, or other dispute resolution procedure. In the event the parties are unable to resolve their dispute by mediation, the parties shall submit their claims to binding arbitration administered by the religious dispute division of MLG, under its Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the MLG arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The parties further acknowledge that where emergency interim relief is required by a party to this agreement, including but not limited to injunctive relief and orders for the protection or conservation of property and/or disposition of disposable goods, such relief may be granted by an MLG arbitrator upon application under the MLG Arbitration Rules, even when the dispute is still in the mediation phase of resolution. The parties acknowledge and agree that an application for such emergency interim relief shall not constitute a waiver or breach of mediation requirements under this provision.
IF ANY PARTY HERETO INITIATES COURT PROCEEDINGS BASED UPON A DISPUTE TO WHICH THESE PARAGRAPHS APPLY, WITHOUT FIRST ATTEMPTING TO RESOLVE THE MATTER THROUGH MEDIATION AND ARBITRATION, THEN IN THE DISCRETION OF THE JUDGE, SUCH PARTY SHALL NOT BE ENTITLED TO RECOVER ATTORNEYS’ FEES, EVEN IF FEES WOULD OTHERWISE BE RECOVERABLE BY THAT PARTY IN ANY SUCH COURT PROCEEDING.
