Content License Agreement
This Content License Agreement (the “Agreement”) is entered into between you (“Licensor”) and Jaunt, Inc. (“Jaunt”). For good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereby agree as follows:
- License. All videos and other content (each a “Program” and collectively the “Programs”) submitted by or on behalf of Licensor to Jaunt, including through any Jaunt-branded website, interface or other delivery mechanism, are subject to the terms of this Agreement. Licensor hereby grants to Jaunt a non-exclusive, sublicensable, right and license, during the Term (as hereinafter defined), throughout the world (the “Territory”), to reproduce, distribute, display, prepare derivative works (solely for the limited purposes set forth below) perform and otherwise exploit the Programs in VR (as hereinafter defined) through the Jaunt Platform and the platforms of its sublicensees by any and all means and methods including, without limitation, video on demand, subscription, electronic sell through, ad-supported, sponsored, free-to-view and pay-per-view. The foregoing includes the right to market and promote the Programs in any and all media, now known or hereafter devised, including by means of teasers, trailers and artwork, and the right to use the title of the Programs, music and other elements embodied in the Programs, and the names, voices and likeness of any persons appearing in or providing services in connection with the Programs. If Licensor does not meet Jaunt’s requirements for delivery of sufficient marketing and promotion materials, as further set forth below, then Jaunt shall have the right, in good faith, to create materials and prepare derivative works from the Programs solely in order to market and promote the Programs. “VR” means all modes of virtual reality, now known or hereafter devised including, without limitation, cinematic virtual reality (e.g., an individual experience using a headset or virtual reality glasses), 360 degree two-dimensional formats, and through augmented reality formats as developed from time to time. “Program” includes, without limitation, the audio-visual work, all elements thereof, and any materials, metadata and documentation provided in connection therewith. “Jaunt Platform” includes, without limitation, any Jaunt-branded distribution platform or channel including app(s) and website(s), and third party social media channels used by Jaunt. In addition, Jaunt shall have the right to sublicense (including through syndication) the Programs to third parties for use on their own platforms, consistent with the terms hereof. Jaunt and its sublicensees shall have the right to create and provide subtitles and captioning for the Programs and to take all other actions in order to comply with applicable laws, rules and regulations. Nothing contained herein shall prohibit Jaunt or its sublicensees from implementing functionality to enable audio-only listening of the Programs. Jaunt and its sublicensees shall have the right to take all other steps reasonably necessary in order to fulfill the purposes hereof including, without limitation, making technical modifications to files containing the Programs in order to comply with Jaunt or third party technical requirements.
- Term; Termination. This Agreement shall commence on the date that Licensor enters into this Agreement (as indicated by Licensor accepting the terms of this Agreement) and shall continue for a period of three (3) years after Delivery (as hereinafter defined) of the last Program hereunder (the “Initial Term”). Thereafter the Initial Term shall automatically renew for additional one (1) year periods unless this Agreement is terminated not later than sixty (60) days prior to the end of the then-current term (each a “Renewal Term”). The Initial Term and any Renewal Term are, collectively, the “Term”). Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement, Jaunt shall cease exploiting the Programs and Licensor shall delete or otherwise remove the Programs (including files and metadata) from the applicable server or repository. Jaunt shall have no obligation to make the foregoing Programs accessible to Licensor thirty (30) days after the expiration or termination of this Agreement and Licensor assumes all risk of loss.
- Delivery; Risk of Loss. Licensor shall deliver each Program to Jaunt in accordance with the Jaunt Delivery Specifications as updated by Jaunt from time to time (each a “Delivery”). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, any Program delivered to Jaunt, shall be subject to this Agreement, whether or not such Program is submitted through the same website or interface where this Agreement is presented. Licensor assumes all risk of loss for the Programs and any files, metadata and materials provided therewith (all of which shall be deemed part of the applicable Program). Concurrent with Delivery, Licensor shall, to the extent applicable, provide Jaunt with music cue sheets in accordance with Jaunt’s reporting requirements.
- Proceeds. Jaunt and its sublicensees shall have the right to monetize the Programs in their discretion. In such event, Jaunt shall pay to Licensor one hundred percent (100%) of all revenues received by Jaunt (if any) in U.S. dollars (or other currency) directly from and attributed to Jaunt’s and its sublicensee’s exploitation of the Programs, minus (a) a platform and distribution fee of fifty percent (50%) of such revenues; and (b) any other fees or costs incurred by Jaunt or its sublicensees related to delivery, editing, dubbing, subtitling and other costs directly related to preparation and delivery of the Programs (collectively, “Defined Proceeds”). Defined Proceeds shall be subject to any deductions or withholdings required by applicable law or regulation including, without limitation, sales tax and VAT, but excluding taxes imposed on Jaunt’s receipt of its share, if any, of revenues. Jaunt is not obligated to exploit or monetize the Programs and, in such event, Jaunt makes no guarantees of any revenues therefrom. Jaunt will account to Licensor for Licensor’s share of the Defined Proceeds at the end of each sixty (60) day period; provided that sums shall accrue but not be payable until at least two hundred fifty dollars (US $250) are accrued for the applicable period (which sum shall be carried over to the following period if payment is not otherwise due). Any remaining sums accrued upon termination or expiration of this Agreement shall be due and payable for such period. Jaunt will provide or make available statements to Licensor concurrent with all payments. All payments shall be made to Licensor via the Automated Clearing House (ACH) according to instructions provided by Licensor. Jaunt reserves the right to use a different payment mechanism for payments outside the United States. No claim may be brought by Licensor for outstanding payments owed which claim is brought more than twelve (12) months after the accrual of the cause of action which is the basis of such claim.
