**Special Provisions Attachment for Commercials

Made for Initial Use on Broadcast Television moved over to Internet & New Media

 

New Media is defined by the  SAG Commercials Contract as digital, electronic and any other type of delivery platform including, but not limited to, commercials delivered via podcasts, mobile phones and other digital or electronic media, whether now known or unknown. 

In addition to the terms and conditions of the foregoing "Screen Actors Guild Standard Employment Contract for Television Commercials" (the "Contract"), we intend to book performers for Internet & New Media usage as follows:

Without limiting any provision in the Contract, Performer agrees that Producer will have the maximum usage rights permitted by the SAG Commercials Contract, including without limitation the right to move any and all commercials over to the Internet and/or to New Media, for one (1) year and/or for any other period prescribed by the SAG Commercials Contract (in each case in exchange for the minimum compensation prescribed by the SAG Commercials Contract at the rate of 400% of the applicable session fee). 

This rate will cover usage on Internet and all New Media Platforms as listed above for one (1) edit of the commercial.  A payment of one (1) additional scale session fee will cover up to four (4) more edits/lifts/revisions.  Any edits/lifts/revisions after five (5) will be negotiated in good faith.
