September 11, 2001, Documentary Project

Release Form for Collectors


I, __________________________________________, am a participant in the September 11, 2001, Documentary Project (hereinafter "Project"). I understand that the purpose of the Project is to collect audio- and/or video-taped oral accounts of September 11, 2001 in America that will be deposited in the permanent collections of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. The deposited documentary materials will serve as a record of America's reactions to the Attack on America on September 11, 2001; and will be used for scholarly and educational purposes. I understand that the American Folklife Center plans to retain the interviews as part of its permanent collection and that the recordings may be used for exhibition, publication, presentation on the World Wide Web and successor technologies, and for promotion of the Library of Congress and its activities in any medium.

I hereby grant to the Library of Congress ownership of the physical property delivered to the Library and the right to use the property that is the product of my participation (for example, my interview, photographs, and written materials) as stated above. By giving permission, I understand that I do not give up any copyright or performance rights that I may hold.

I also grant to the Library of Congress my absolute and irrevocable consent for any Project photograph(s) provided by me or taken of me in the course of my participation in the Project to be used, published, and copied by the Library of Congress and its assignees in any medium.

I agree that the Library may use my name, video or photographic image or likeness, statements, performance and voice reproduction, or other sound effects without further approval on my part.

I release the Library of Congress, and its assignees and designees, from any and all claims and demands arising out of or in connection with the use of such recordings, documents, and artifacts, including but not limited to, any claims for defamation, invasion of privacy, or right of publicity.
