Webinar Proposal

Thank you for your assistance in creating a DRI webinar program. Please complete and submit this proposal form. To comply with MCLE requirements, speakers must provide DRI written course materials prior to the webinar program recording date. Course material guidelines can be found here (PDF).

DRI will distribute written materials to attendees before the event. DRI will pre-record the speakers’ presentation the week before the scheduled program date. Speakers must be available on the scheduled program date to participate in live question and answer with the audience via chat. DRI may schedule one or more rebroadcasts of the recorded webinar, and if so, the speakers will need to participate in live question and answer via chat for each rebroadcast. DRI may also save the recorded content to its on-demand library for later purchase.

As used in this Agreement, the term “Presentation” means your spoken presentation and all related materials such as handouts, printed materials, visual aids and the like. By signing below, you grant DRI and its successors and assigns a sublicensable, non-revocable, and royalty-free right to exhibit, publicly perform, distribute, broadcast, edit, translate, transmit, or otherwise disseminate the Presentation, without any further approval from you, in whole or in part, throughout the world, in perpetuity, in any and all media now known or hereafter developed. Furthermore, you grant DRI the right to use the Presentation either alone or together with supporting information, such as your name, voice, photograph, likeness and biographical data.

In addition, you understand and agree that (i) DRI is not obligated to use the Presentation or any supporting information in any way; and (ii) you will not receive any form of payment in connection with the use of the Presentation and/or supporting information.

Any pictures or recordings taken of you or the Presentation will become the sole and exclusive property of DRI in perpetuity. You agree that neither you nor your heirs or assigns shall have any right to bring legal action against DRI or its successors, assigns, or licensors for any use of the pictures or recordings.

You represent and warrant that: (i) you have the full power and authority to grant the rights and releases set forth in this Agreement; (ii) the Presentation is wholly original to you, in the public domain throughout the world or, if the property or work of others, fully cleared at your sole expense; (iii) the Presentation does not contain any materials that are obscene, defamatory, libelous, or slanderous; and (iv) the Presentation will not, when used in accordance with the terms of this Agreement by DRI or any successor, assignee or licensee, violate any laws, rules, regulations, any third-party intellectual property rights, right of privacy or any other proprietary rights of any other person or entity. You agree to hold DRI and its successors, assigns, and licensees harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, losses or damages that may arise from the use or distribution of the Presentation.

By clicking "Submit", you understand that DRI will be relying upon the foregoing grants of rights, representations, and indemnity in order to proceed with the Event. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the internal laws, as opposed to the choice of law rules, of the State of Illinois.
