The hosts of the TEDx event, TEDxHilo hereafter referred to as the “Event”, will record all the presentations during or related to the Event. The Event hosts’ goal beyond this Event is, much like TED, to spread great ideas, by making these presentations freely and widely available to a global audience.

This release (the “Release”) will serve as the Event’s and TED’s agreement concerning your participation at our Event. In support of the goal of “Ideas Worth Spreading,” you grant Event organizers, TED, and other entities — the right to record, film and photograph your presentation at the Event, such recording hereafter referred to as the “Presentation”, and to distribute, broadcast or otherwise disseminate it, without any further approval from you, in whole or in part, throughout the world, in perpetuity, in any and all media now known or hereafter developed. This grant to the Event organizers and TED includes, but is not limited to, the right to edit the Presentation, and the right to use the Presentation either alone or together with supporting information, such as your name, voice, photograph, likeness and biographical data (collectively, “Supporting Information”). You agree that the Event or TED may designate others, e.g., distributors or broadcasters, to distribute the Presentation, and that these designees will have the same rights you’ve granted to Event organizers and TED, excluding editing rights. Examples of permitted uses of the Presentation and Supporting Information include displaying the Presentation on the Event organizers website, TED’s website, TED.com; broadcasting the Presentation on television; and distributing the Presentation on DVDs, mobile phones, films, and online video distribution channels, such as iTunes and YouTube. Event and TED encourage intelligent public debate around each presentation. Accordingly, we distribute TEDx and TED’s presentations under a Creative Commons 3.0 license, which allows each distributed presentation to be re-published in non-commercial, non-derivative works, as long as appropriate credit is given and the presentation is not edited or distorted. By signing this Release, you acknowledge and agree that you do not object to the Event organizer or TED’s distributing the Presentation under a Creative Commons 3.0 license.

In addition, you understand and agree that: (i) TED isn’t obligated to use the Presentation or Supporting Information in any way; (ii) you won’t receive any form of payment in connection with the use of the Presentation and/or Supporting Information; and (iii) you may not revoke the rights granted in this Release. You affirm that: (i) you have the full power and authority to grant the rights and releases set forth in this Release; (ii) you are the sole author of the Presentation; (iii) you own all rights to the Presentation, including, but not limited to, all copyrights and trademark rights; (iv) you will advise your Event organizer in writing of all third-party material contained in the Presentation (to which you have not secured all necessary rights); and (v) use of the Presentation as permitted by this Release will not violate the rights of any third party. If any third party claims that the use of the Presentation violates its rights, you agree to cooperate fully with the Event organizer and/or TED to defend against or otherwise respond to such claim. This Release contains the entire understanding between you and the Event and TED regarding the Presentation and/or Supporting Information and may not be modified except in a writing signed by all parties.
