  1. I hereby agree that Company may tape and photograph me, and record my voice, conversation and sounds (including any performance of any musical composition(s)), during and in connection with my appearance and I hereby irrevocably and unconditionally assign with full title guarantee to Company (such assignment to operate to the extent necessary as a present assignment of future copyright) all the copyright and other rights of whatsoever nature (including without limitation all performers’ property rights) throughout the world in all media whether now known or hereafter developed for the full period of copyright and all renewals, reversions, revivals and extensions thereof (and thereafter, insofar as may be or become possible, in perpetuity) in the results and proceeds of such taping, photography and recording for Company to hold the same absolutely. I hereby consent to the unlimited exploitation of the Programme and any part(s) thereof including any of my contribution in any form and by any media throughout the world.  I agree that the rights referred to above include without limitation those rights known as the lending and rental rights in and to any programme incorporating my contribution and I agree that no payment shall be due to me nor shall I make a claim for any payment against Company in respect of the exploitation of such rights. I further agree that Company shall be entitled to edit, copy, add to, take from, adapt or translate my contribution and I hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waive any so-called “moral rights” as I may have or hereafter acquire in relation to my contribution and the Programme.
