In the entertainment industry, it is common for creative work to exchange hands via a variety of channels and between a range of professionals. Creative work can come in the form of a proposal, screenplay, treatment, literary work, artwork, video, or musical composition, among many others. Depending on the type of work being submitted, the recipient might be a producer, network or record company executive, agent, editor, or publisher, just to name a few. No matter the medium, it is essential that the submitting party sign a submission release when a creative work is being passed on. A submission release assures the recipient that the work submitted is original and that the person making the submission is legally entitled to do so. A submission release also limits the recipient's liability should he or she ever use or create work that is similar to what has been submitted. For example, a producer may already be developing a medical drama for television when they receive a script or proposal for a similar show from a writer. If that producer has had the writer complete a submission release, they will be protected from claims of infringement. Use LegalZoom's Submission Release so that you can begin crafting a document that works for your purposes. Download the release today to ensure that you are protected from liability the next time you receive creative work.
