Terms of Service and License Agreement


I, ______(Author or Legally Authorized Party)____, willingly and freely enter into this Agreement with the Life Story Library Foundation (“LSL”) in support of its charitable mission to collect, preserve and share the personal life stories of our time as valuable recorded history. The deposited story materials will serve as a record of human experience and act as a scholarly and educational resource for the general public.

As the originator of the story, I give my permission to LSL to archive these story materials, my name, likeness and image, and copy, disseminate, publish and/or distribute them in all forms of media, now known or later developed, including digitally, according to the preferences I have indicated above. I understand that LSL will retain the product of my participation (audio interview, video, photographs, written materials, etc.) as part of its permanent collection.

By giving this permission, I understand that I do not forfeit any copyrights that I may hold that are not in conflict herewith, and copyright protection of these materials is provided to me under the legal code of a Creative Commons license, identified as CC BY-NC-ND (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/).

If my story is selected as a Feature Story, I grant to the Life Story Library the perpetual, nonexclusive, transferable, royalty free, fully paid-up, worldwide right and license to reproduce, publish, store, transmit, display, present, perform, prepare derivative works from, disseminate and distribute the material in all media now known or later developed, including but not limited to both print, sound recordings, audiovisual, electronic, analog and digital formats. I understand that I will be involved in the editing process as much as is commercially reasonable under the circumstances, and that proceeds generated through these activities will support the charitable mission of the Life Story Library Foundation.

I assume full responsibility for this story submission, including its content, accuracy and presentation. I agree to indemnify and hold LSL and its officers, directors, managers, members, employees, agents representatives, successors, assigns and designees harmless from any claim, suits, causes of action, demand and the like arising from or relating to the use of these materials, including but not limited to any claims for copyright infringement, defamation, invasion of privacy, or right of publicity, or any and all so-called “moral rights” now or hereafter recognized with respect hereto in all jurisdictions of the world.

This Agreement shall be governed and construed by the State of Utah, notwithstanding the choice of law rules of such State. The courts of Utah shall have exclusive jurisdiction to determine any dispute between the parties and the parties hereby expressly consent to such exclusive jurisdiction and venue before the proper authority in Salt Lake City, Utah. The prevailing party in such a dispute will be entitled to attorney’s fees.
