This Footage License Agreement (the "Agreement") is a legal contract between you (“End User” or “Licensee”) and Sungold Studio, LLC. (”Sungold Studio” or “Licensor”), a California limited liability company with its principal office located in Los Angeles, California, for the purpose of Licensee’s use of certain rights in and to audio visual works (termed “Works” hereafter) created, controlled, or owned by content suppliers (“Content Suppliers”). By downloading Works from our website, you agree to conduct this transaction electronically and you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement in respect to those Works. If you do not accept or agree with these terms, do not download Works.

The use of the Works is strictly subject to the terms, conditions, and restrictions set forth in this Agreement. If any of the Licensee-provided information provided during Licensee’s purchase is missing, omitted, or incorrect, this license may be invalidated by Sungold Studio. This license is for a single film project intended to promote a single organization, entity, company, product, or the like (collectively referred to as “End Client”).

  1. You acknowledge that each of the Works is the property of Licensor and its content supplier (“Content Supplier”). If you are entering this Agreement on behalf of an organization, entity, or company, then that entity is bound to the license granted and the restrictions and limitations detailed herein (and such entity or organization is included in the term "Licensee") regardless of your future employment and/or relationship with such entity. You acknowledge representations you made regarding license in Section 1 of this Agreement including end client organization type, distribution, size of the end client, client name, project name, and project description (“License Details”) are true and correct. You acknowledge that Works shall only be used in the project name listed in Section 1.
  2. In consideration of the mutual promises contained herein, and the payment to Licensor, Licensor hereby grants to Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the Works of those Content Suppliers represented by Licensor, subject to the terms and conditions set forth within this Agreement and Sungold Studio’s Terms of Use which are incorporated herein by reference with the same force and effect as if fully set forth herein. Licensor’s Works are rights-managed (“Rights-Managed”) and shall be licensed for specific types of use. For purposes of this Agreement, a Licensee’s "use" of the Works includes licensing to modify, edit, synchronize, publish, or otherwise make use of the Works within the scope of the license. The Works are limited to specific uses and territory selected, along with other restrictions outlined in this Agreement. Rights-Managed Works are non-exclusive, meaning that Licensee does not have the sole right to use the Works and Licensor is free to license the same content to other customers. Exclusive licenses may be available for Rights-Managed Works through custom license agreements.
    1. Without notice beforehand, Licensor may automatically terminate this Agreement in the event of Licensee’s breach of Paragraphs 1 and 12.a.—n. of this Agreement (“Material Breach”) and pursue all available legal remedies. In the event of Material Breach, Licensee must immediately stop all use of the content and destroy any copies. Licensor may request Licensee confirm in writing that use of the content containing the Works has ceased and copies have been deleted. If Licensee displays content containing the Works on a social media platform or other website and the platform or website uses the content for its own purpose or in a way that is contrary to this Agreement, the rights granted for such use shall immediately terminate, and in that event, upon Licensor’s request, Licensee agrees to remove any content from such platform or website. Licensor may seek injunctive relief in the event Licensee fails to remove the Works within twenty-four hours of Licensor’s termination.
    2. In the event of any other type of breach or violation that does not constitute a Material Breach under this Agreement, Licensor may terminate this Agreement by first giving notice of breach in writing, as provided in Paragraph 19, by regular mail to Licensee’s physical address, or electronic communication such as email to Licensee at Licensee's provided email address.

  4. The uses of the Works are strictly subject to the rules set forth in this Agreement. Licensee may not internally or externally publish any Works from Licensor's site (sample or preview files with the Sungold Studio watermark) without a proper license. Licensor may provide files of the Works without the Sungold Studio watermark to certain users for limited preview or approval use, however, unless a license is purchased, the Works shall not be used in any final materials or any publicly available materials.
  5. Licensor represents and warrants that all of the licensed content is owned by either Licensor or Content Suppliers. All rights not expressly granted in this agreement are reserved by Licensor and Content Suppliers. Licensee shall not assert any right to revenue from a copyright collecting agency, social media or content sharing platform, or any other third party in respect of copying, sharing, distribution or other ancillary uses of the licensed Works.
  6. Licensee is not permitted to purchase Works directly from our website for use in non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”) or digital collectibles. Licensee is required to execute a custom footage license agreement with Licensor for all Works that Licensee intends to incorporate into NFTs or other digital collectibles. The failure to create a custom footage license under this Section constitutes a material breach of this Agreement and shall permit Licensor to immediately terminate the license agreement(s) and seek all available legal remedies.
  7. Licensee agrees that additional model and/or property releases may be required for Licensee’s specific use of the Works. In the event Licensee’s use of the licensed Works involves modifications, overlays, and/or refocusing, Licensee may be subject to claims of infringement of intellectual property by the Content Supplier or a third party rights owner.
  8. The Works and accompanying materials (if applicable) are provided “as is” without warranties or conditions of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Licensor does not represent or warrant that the Works will meet Licensee’s requirements or that its use will be uninterrupted or error free.

    2. In any event, Licensor's total maximum aggregate liability under this agreement, the license provided hereunder, or the use or exploitation of any or all of the Works in any manner whatsoever shall be limited to the fees actually paid by Licensee to Licensor under this Agreement in respect of the use of the Works.

Licensor and Licensee agree that any use of Works in a manner not expressly authorized by this Agreement or in breach of a term of this Agreement constitutes copyright infringement, and such unauthorized use shall entitle Licensor to liquidated damages in the amount of ten (10) times the standard license fee for each breach. The parties in this contract agree that Licensor’s actual damages in the event of this type of breach by Licensee would be difficult to definitively ascertain based on uncertainties regarding (1) the impact to Licensor’s reputation and goodwill in the industry and (2) the damage to Licensor’s relationships with its current and future Content Suppliers. Licensor and Licensee therefore agree that the above-referenced amount is not a penalty for breach and is a reasonable liquidated damages amount.

  16. Any attempt by Licensee to assign this Agreement other than as permitted above will be null and void. Licensor may assign this Agreement without Licensee’s consent.

Licensee hereby irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of any state or federal court located in Los Angeles County, California, over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement. To the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, Licensee irrevocably waives and agrees not to assert, by way of motion, as a defense or otherwise, any claim that Licensee is not subject to the jurisdiction of the above-referenced California courts and any objection that Licensee may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action, or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.
