Talent Buy-out Policy
Buyouts is an outdated business model that in today's internet dominated marketplace makes no sense at all.
History of Buyouts.
Previously when hiring a talent the client had a definitive media campaign for the talent that was limited to (e.g.) 30 advertising spots on a local television network, or within a specific magazine for a specific month.
Clients then had the option to have the freedom to use the talent media captured for the specific campaign in future campaigns for a set fee. This being the buyout.
However the internet has changed all this. No longer can any image be limited. Once it appears on the internet it can be copied, downloaded, re-uploaded and no one can control or limit the region or time-frame for that image to be show.
All our talent provides our clients with an unlimited use of their image without any restriction in time, media or region.
All our talents sign the form below that safeguards both our clients and our talent.
