Frequently Asked Questions

In-perpetuity refers to usage that has no end date. It can be used as long as the client likes, so long as it is on the predetermined media source (ie: TV, radio, online).

The difference comes down to usage.

A full buyout has unlimited usage on an unlimited amount of media. In-perpetuity relates to the time of the usage but can only be used on the pre-agreed upon media.
An exclusivity agreement regulates the type of jobs that voice over talent can accept after working with the client. For example, a client like Nike may not permit a voice actor they have hired to do any work with a main competitor like Adidas. The client will most likely want to clarify this ahead of time by stipulating exclusivity.
Renewals occur when broadcast work is being used beyond the originally agreed upon timeframe. Additional compensation is required.
