Frequently Asked Questions

The key terms include:

  • Payment: the right for the model or talent to be paid for the use of recordings or photographs.
  • Scope of Usage: the ability to set out how any created content will be used. This includes the type of media used (socials, web, print etc.), the purpose of use, and the time frame for use. See below for more information.
  • Ownership: that the content creator (not the model or talent) owns the rights to any content created, including intellectual property rights.
  • Liability: release from any actions or liability that arise in relation to the use of any content created. This includes claims for further payment or infringement of moral rights by the talent or model.

For any business wanting to engage with a model or hired talent.

To use this template, the Talent or Model will need to be paid for or receive some other form of value for their services – this could be in money or gifts in kind. If there is no payment or value passing to the Talent or Model, it is recommended that you use a deed. A deed is required where there is no legal consideration passing to the person who is in the shoot. In this situation, we recommend that you see a lawyer.
