Audible Agreement Definition
This agreement and the documents mentioned in it constitute the entire agreement between you and us on the issues that are dealt with and replaces any prior or simultaneous communication, agreement or communication between you and us, either in writing or orally, with respect to the issues that are dealt with and can only be amended or amended in a written document that you and we have agreed to. You acknowledge that, in the performance of this Agreement, you do not rely on insurance, security, draft contract, obligation, commitment, security commitment or other insurance, or any other agreement of any kind that is not included. If a provision of this contract is found to be invalid, null or void for any reason, that provision is considered separable and does not affect the validity and applicability of another provision. All disputes or claims relating to these conditions or your use of the Service are settled through a binding arbitration procedure and not in the courts, except that you can file claims in a minor claims court if your claims are justified. This agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration and Federal Arbitration Act. In 2003, Audible agreed with Apple Inc. to be the exclusive audiobook provider for the iTunes Music Store. The agreement ended in 2017 following agreements in the European Union.  A simple contract in which the voice on talent and producer or engineer transfers (or assign) all their rights against one against one against one against one against one against one, is all you need to guarantee those rights for yourself. The basic understanding that you are the owner of all rights must be written.
A direct agreement of “work for rent” is not sufficient, as voiceover talents and production/engineering work do not fall directly under the nine lease categories work defined by copyright law. The simple contract that goes around is usually called an intellectual property transfer (or transfer) agreement. The information contained in this article is primarily intended for self-published authors, but the principles of copyright ownership of an audiobook are the same for traditionally published authors. The difference is that a traditional publishing house, if it has secured the rights to audiobooks in its publication agreement with you, is responsible for managing the sound recording rights to ensure that the creation of the audiobook from your underlying work is consistent with the terms of the agreement.
