Voice-Over Narrator Release Agreement

Readers have complained that SCRIBD requires premium membership for the "free" download so here is a copy of the voice over/narrator release. Copy and paste!

Audio Reader Release Agreement

This Audio Reader Release Agreement (the Agreement) is made between [your company or name]  ("Producer"), and [name of reader] (“Reader”).

Reader understands that Producer is not obligated to utilize any of the rights granted in this Agreement.

Payment. Producers have paid Reader as follows: $___ as payment in full for the rights granted under this Agreement.

The failure to provide a credit shall not be a material breach of this Agreement.
