Document Overview

An Audio Release for Media (Podcast, Radio Program or other) is an important document that can help to ensure that the necessary permissions are obtained for the use of a person's voice or other sounds in an audio production. Whether you are a podcast or radio producer seeking to obtain these permissions, or an interviewee or voice actor seeking to protect your rights, a well-drafted Audio Release can provide the necessary legal protections and assurances to ensure a successful production.

This Release is suitable for audio recordings that will be featured in an audiovisual production.

The Release achieves several purposes:

  • It ensures that every person appearing in the recording has signed a document which effects a release, to take account of the “performer's protection” provisions of Part XIA of the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth). It deals with the performer's moral rights that were introduced by the US Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act 2004 (Cth) into Part IX of the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth).

  • It provides the production company with a waiver in respect of any subsequent litigation.

It is important to be aware of the relevant state or territory legislation relating the enforcement of contracts signed with children to ensure that any contract is enforceable. If unsure, seek legal advice. Where this release is being signed by a child, it should also have the child's parents or guardians as parties.
