Submission Agreement

I (the “Submitter”) am voluntarily submitting to the program director, mentors and staff of the  program known as Mentorship Matters (collectively, “you”) herewith, at my initiation and not your  solicitation, and under the terms and conditions stated herein, the following material (hereinafter referred to as “said material”):

FORM OF MATERIAL: Original Writing Sample – Script  

1. I represent and warrant that I am the sole owner and author of said material and therefore, have the full right to submit it to you upon the terms and conditions stated herein. I will indemnify you from and against any and all claims, demands, expenses,  losses or liabilities (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) that may be asserted against  you as a result of my submittal of said material and, should you acquire my rights  therein, your use of said material. Moreover, I hereby release you of and from any and  all claims, disputes, demands, expenses, losses or liabilities of every kind whatsoever,  known or unknown, that may arise in relation to this agreement, the submitted material  or by reason of any claim now or hereafter made by me concerning your use of the  submitted material.  

2. I agree that no obligation of any kind is assumed or may be implied against you by  reason of your review of the submitted material or any discussions we may have. I  further acknowledge that at this time you have no intent to compensate me in any way  and I have no expectation (and, at the time of submission, had no expectation) of  receiving any compensation. You agree, however, that except as provided in  Paragraphs 3 and 4 below, you will not use protectable elements of said material unless  you shall pay me an amount for such use which you and I shall mutually agree upon,  subject to your ability to use said material as set forth in Paragraph 3 below.

3. If said material or any element thereof is not new, unique, concrete or novel and/or is  in the public domain and/or does not constitute protectable literary property and/or is  not original with me, then as between you and me, I agree that you have the right to  use such elements without any obligation to me whatsoever. Without limiting the  foregoing, I claim no rights in the title of said material.

4. I acknowledge that, because of your position in the entertainment industry, you receive  numerous submittals of, among other things, ideas, formats, stories, and suggestions,  and that many such submittals, either previously or hereafter received by you, are similar or identical to those developed by or otherwise available to you. Consequently,  I recognize that my material submitted hereunder likewise may be so similar or  identical. I acknowledge that I will not be entitled to any compensation because of the  use of any such similar or identical material which may have been independently  created by you or a third party.

5. I acknowledge that no fiduciary or confidential relationship now exists between you and  me, and I further acknowledge that no such relationships are established between you  and me by reason of my submittal to you of said material. Nothing contained in this  agreement nor the fact of my submission of said material to you shall be deemed to  place you or any person or entity to whom you show said material in any different  position than anyone else to whom I have not submitted the same or similar material  with respect to any portion of said material that does not constitute protectable literary  property.

6. Any dispute concerning said material or this agreement, including but not limited to,  the validity or effect of this agreement, any alleged improper use by you of said material  or the reasonable value of said material shall be submitted to arbitration in the County  of Los Angeles, State of California, in accordance with the rules and regulations of the  American Arbitration Association then in effect, provided that said arbitration shall be  heard before a single arbitrator experienced in entertainment law and business practice.

The arbitrator’s decision shall be final, binding and controlled by the terms and  conditions of this agreement. The arbitration will be conducted confidentially and any  award may be made public only with the prior written consent of the parties. Judgment  upon the award of the arbitrator may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction.  The costs and expenses, including but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and  expert witness fees, shall be borne by the losing party. Although I may commence an  action at law for the sole purpose of enforcing such an arbitration award, I waive the  right to seek any other relief at law or in equity with respect to my protectable material  or this agreement.

7. I have retained a copy of the submitted material, and I release you from any liability for  loss or other damage to the copy(ies) submitted by me.

8. You may assign your rights and obligations under this agreement to any third party,  including but not limited to, individuals, firms or corporations.

9. The word “you” or “your” in this agreement refers to you, any parent company, any  company affiliated with you by common stock ownership or otherwise, your  subsidiaries, affiliates, subsidiaries of such affiliates, and the officers, agents,  employees, stockholders, licensees, successors and assigns of you and all such  persons, firms and corporations referred to in this paragraph. If said material is  submitted by more than one person, the word “I” shall be deemed changed to “we”  (and the corresponding verbs changed to the first person plural), and this agreement  shall be binding jointly and severally upon all such persons.

10. With respect to this agreement, any provision or part thereof which is deemed void or  unenforceable shall be deemed omitted, and this agreement with such provision or part  thereof omitted shall remain in full force and effect. This agreement shall at all times  be construed so as to carry out the purposes stated herein.

11. This agreement may not be changed, modified, terminated or discharged except by a  writing signed by both you and me. This agreement, regardless of where executed or  performed, shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws  of the State of California applicable to agreements executed and to be wholly performed  therein.

12. I hereby state that I have read and understand this agreement in its entirety; that no oral  representations of any kind have been made to me; that there are no prior or  contemporaneous oral agreements in effect between us pertaining to said submitted  material; and that this agreement states our complete and entire understanding, and  that a copy of the Agreement has been retained by me.
