Creator Licensing.

Creator licensing is a way for content creators to promote themselves on digital channels. Creators benefit from extended reach and less work, while brands can leverage data to create content that’s more effective for their customers.


Creator licensing can be a great way for content creatives to get more exposure and creates opportunities in other areas.


As a participant you take part in creating a new work of media. This makes you a co-creative.

By default, this gives you partial copyright privileges and you own intellectual rights to the extend in which you participate in an intellectual capacity. This applies to Candice Storm and Design in Focus, and it’s current and future creative stakeholders. All are bound to the same responsibilities and have the same rights. Your work may not be altered without your consent and you may not alter the final works without consent.


Below follows the mandatory agreement contract that you must sign to participate. Please review this section before onboarding because there can be consequences for not understanding the full scope of our endeavours.





1.1. You confirm that you are acting within your own capacity and that you are experienced in the topic(s) you are discussing.


1.2.  After we finalise the Work, we shall have the right (in our sole discretion) to determine whether or not to distribute (publish, broadcast, or otherwise distribute) it.  

However, you will be the first to listen to it, and you have the right to approve or decline the publication of it.  If you agree to this contract, you give consent to Design in Focus to use the Work, we advise you to listen to the Work several times (even if it takes a few days) and share it with people you trust to help you decide if it aligns with your goals and objectives.  We would require you to provide us with a valid reason for declining publication as work is done and resources are spent to produce the final work.   

1.3.  You agree to provide us with background information, including fact-checking materials, data, technical information, information about subjects or any other materials or information related to the Work that we reasonably request.


Our main goal is to create multimedia content that demonstrates the value and impact of Creativity, Innovation and Design as such any and all info provided by you must adhere to this.





2.1.  Neither us nor you are currently financially rewarded for our collective contribution, and the rewards are conceptually based on sharing professional knowledge and creating content which demonstrates the value and impact of our industry to showcase our knowledge and understanding. 


2.2.  All profits derived from this work will be shared and according to contribution.

Design in Focus as the producer. To cover the costs of production, hosting, marketing, & distribution, we will first use incoming monies to compensate costs incurred, the remaining money will be split equally and divided as indicated below.

· Candice Storm as a professional.  To reward her for her time and effort.

· You as a professional.  To reward you for your contribution.

· Any additional professionals and persons who may work on the project to reward them for their contribution. (Audio engineers or Music / Art producers etc)

· Design in Focus as an organisation. To grow the concept and ensure the continuation of the organisation. 


2.3. Kill Fee.  After we have recorded our session, you may decide to decline the finalisation of the Work.  Once we start working to finalise the Work and we start spending time and effort to cut and edit it into the required formats and spend money to do so, we will have the right to request compensation for this in the event that you may wish to kill the Work.  

Please be aware of this during production so that you can end it right away before we start wasting valuable resources.  We will ask you if you are happy with the recording and if we may continue at the end of each session.  Your response, if positive, will be an automatic indicator for us to continue and start finalizing. 

The kill fee will amount to the total hour rate, which is €52.00 excluding VAT for Candice Storm AND if applicable the hour rate of any other contributor ASWELL as any additional costs incurred. 

The kill fee does not apply to the situation outlined in section 1.2. When we have created the final product and have send it over for your final approval, you may decide to decline the publication of it based on *valid criteria. 

* It would be unfair for us to have done so much work then have it stopped for no good reason. Please be as respectful to us as we are to you.


2.4. Design in Focus is currently funded by Candice Storm who can not 100% guarantee the financial stability of the organisation, and therefore, cannot guarantee that the Work will be finalised, published, or marketed and when finalised, published, and marketed, she cannot ensure that it will remain active on all channels indefinitely.
