Submission Release: Authorization, Release & Agreement


I hereby give and grant to (hereinafter “BTI”) and those acting with and under BTI  permission or upon authority of BTI, the unrestricted right and permission to use my submission of photography and my personal story which I may be included (hereinafter referred to as “MEDIA”) in whole or in part, composite or distorted, in character or form, all without restriction as to changes or alterations in the MEDIA whether previous, concurrent or subsequent to the date of this Agreement, and/or reproductions thereof, in color, sound or otherwise, for any use through any media and/or any other exhibition for any purpose whatsoever, including, but not limited to, advertising and publicity purposes.

By submitting a story to BTI, you are granting the makers of behind-the-ink copy right permission to publish, use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, or translate (in whole or in part) your story on a world-wide, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sub-licensable basis, along with the right to incorporate any such content into other works in any format or medium now known or later developed. You hereby relinquish all claims to monetary compensation for any and all of these uses, including fees, royalties, and honoraria and waive any other claims the makers behind-the-ink may have based upon the above use or uses, including without limitation any claims for invasion of privacy, violation of the right of publicity, libel and copyright infringement. Stories may be edited for clarity and/or length. Due to the large number of stories received, not all stories will be published.

I understand and agree that BTI has no obligation to use my story or photography. I hereby waive any right that I may have to inspect or approve the MEDIA or the materials into which they may be incorporated or any use whatsoever with which they may be associated.

I hereby release and discharge BTI and its agents, affiliates, employees, successors and assigns from any liability by virtue of any blurring, distortion, alteration, optical illusion, or use in composite or whole form, whether intentional or otherwise, that may exist in the MEDIA or in any publications thereof, and from any liability from claims that may arise regarding use of the MEDIA, my image or other material that depicts, quotes or otherwise represents me, including but not limited to claims of defamation, invasion of privacy, or infringement of moral rights, rights of publicity, or copyright and all other claims.

I understand and agree that this Authorization, Release and Agreement shall be effective forever from the date hereof and shall be applicable throughout the universe.

I hereby warrant that I am of full age – I hereby certify that I am twenty-one years of age or over – and have every right to contract in my own name in execution of this Authorization, Release and Agreement. I state further that I have read this Authorization, Release and Agreement in its entirety prior to my execution hereof, and that I am fully familiar with and in agreement with the contents hereof.
