Como prometido no último post, aqui vai a versão original da liberação (release) para que você possa enviar o seu roteiro diretamente para os grandes produtores de Hollywood, sem um agente. Lembrando que esta série de posts é baseada no livro The Screenwriter’s Bible, escrito por David Trottier:
I, ________________________________________ , acknowledge that the material _(title and description)__
________________________________ that I am submitting to you was created and written by me without any suggestion or request from you. I represent that I am the author of the material and that the material is original with me; that I have the exclusive rights to submit the material to you on the terms and conditions set forth in this agreement; and that I have the power and authority to grant to you all rights in this material.
I realize that many ideias, programs, slogans, scripts, plans, suggestions, and other literary and/or dramatic and/or musical material (herein collectively referred to as “material”), which are submitted to you, are similar to material previously used, previously submitted by others, or already under consideration by you. I further realize that you must protect yourself against any unwarranted claims by refusing to examine any material submitted to you unless you are assured that you shall have the unqualified right to finally determine whether such material or any part thereof is in fact used by you or your successors, assignees ou licensees, and what compensation or other consideration, if any, should be paid for such use.
I am submitting certain material to you herewith. In order to induce you to consider this material, I hereby irrevocably waive, release, and relinquish any and all claims which I, or any other person, firm, or corporation claiming under or through me, may now or hereafter have against you, your successors, assignees, and licensees, and your and their respective officers, employees, and representatives, for any alleged use, that you, or your successors, assignees, or licensees may make of any such material. I also expressly agree that your decisions as to whether you, or your successors, assignees, or licensees have used all or any part of such material and as to the compensation or other consideration, if any, which should be paid to me therefore, shall be conclusive and binding upon me and all persons, firms and corporations claiming under or through me.
I agree that, should I bring any action against you for wrongful appropriation of the material, such action shall be limited to an action at law for damages and in no event shall I be entitled to an injuncion or any other equitable relief. If I am unsuccessful in such action, I agree to pay you all the costs and expenses involved in defending such action.
I further understand and agree that you are not responsible for the return of any material submitted, and I acknowledge that I have retained a duplicate copy of such material in my possession.
I hereby acknowledge that I have read and understood this agreement and that no oral representations of any kind have been made.
Very truly yours,
Typed or printed name
Boa escrita pra você! 😀
