Q: We do internet videos and a major american television show is asking us to sign a "Material License Agreement"
We are wondering what liability can come from this? We do not currently make money from the internet and are just making interesting videos. The contract says we grant non-exclusive license. We're fine giving it away for free but since we don't make money from this, we just want to make sure we can't get sued. In the video, we share an idea that has been shared across the internet. We wouldn't want to be sued for using someone else's idea or something..
A: An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for four weeks. Because of its complexity and detail, this could be a difficult post for an attorney to respond to without knowing more information, and likely seeing the agreement you mention. If you continue not to get a response, one option to consider is reaching out to Arizona attorneys to discuss terms for a consult. Good luck
