Iíve got a client that wants me to sign a talent release. I asked around and George Washington III linked me to one that Squarespace offers.

Here it is linked, and then here's the much shorter version that I created from the "template". My project is just for a series of CD recordings of insurance manuals for the vision challenged.

Talent Release PDF

Mine loses a bit of the formatting going to the website here:

Quote:

I looked back at several I have filed, all of which were supplied by the clients and contained project- and client-specific details (otherwise I would have copied one and sent it to you). I would just write up something like:

In exchange for consideration of (whatever they've agreed to pay you), I (your name here) hereby grant Client (their name here) the rights to use (whatever it is you recorded for them) for (whatever media you've agreed upon for whatever period of time you've agreed upon). (What they owe you for use beyond the originally agreed upon date or media goes here.) Sign and date and Bob's your uncle.

I'll bet there's something better than this in Rob Sciglimpaglia's book.

You know, I actually had an Uncle Bob. Technically a great uncle. He was a riot!

Thanks for the info.
