SEE THE GENERAL DISCLAIMER BELOW.
Lease this worldwide screening and editing rights from The Mirror Empire Company (the “Company”) and retain the right to edit ALL EDITIONS of Chapter One of The Mirror Empire Social Show. With these rights comes the ability to pretend or actually take control of your version, in competition with other versions, of the ongoing, worldwide participatory movie. Will you allow continual editions? How often, and for how long?
Lessee shall be granted the editing and screening rights for the entire world, on all platforms and at all locations. Viewers will be enabled to choose a version from any of the various ones available, when technology and development allows. Revenues shall accrue to the Company and the Lessee according to contractual agreements to be executed by each in good faith.
THE COMPANY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SCREEN ITS OWN VERSIONS OF THE MIRROR EMPIRE SOCIAL SHOW IF NO OTHERS ARE AVAILABLE. OTHERWISE, ANY VERSION SCREENED BY LESSEES THAT ADHERES GENERALLY TO THE SCRIPT AND ENABLES AND PROMOTES THE INCLUSION OF THE USER-GENERATED SCENES AS ENVISIONED IN THE SCRIPTS AS PRESENTED SHALL BE ALLOWED. THE COMPANY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CANCEL THIS LEASE IN THE CASE OF MALFEASANCE OR ANY ACT OF BAD FAITH, WITHOUT REFUND.
The Mirror Empire project is a tentative proposition with risk involved for everyone who participates. The envisioned outcome is a participatory movie that screens in customized versions, to include localized and regionalized content, with each screening. To enable these screenings an editing and screening engine that takes into account the location of each screening and has the ability to insert scenes into an overall production must be brought online and made operative. Such technology is believed to be well within the reach of current capabilities but has not yet been produced. Until such time, screenings of produced and uploaded scenes meant for specific scene slots will be limited to a website application to the extent possible and will not be easily presentable on-demand as full productions. Lessees of the screening rights or shares of screening rights are made aware that this is the first of this type of venture and each is shouldering the risk and burden of a pioneer. The Mirror Empire Company will act in good faith to realize the full creative possibilities inherent in this project as envisioned, and to promote and integrate the creative products of its participants. However, no promises can be reasonably made at this time as to ultimate outcomes. The limits on the numbers of Lessees for each scene will be adhered to, however, to inasmuch as possible safeguard and make valuable the investment of each Lessee as to any possible return whether monetary or in the form of influence or creative expression, though none is guaranteed.
