Sample Speaker Consent Form
On behalf of myself and my company/organization, which is designated below ("Organization"), and in consideration of my participation in Oracle Code 2018 (the “Event”) I grant Oracle (and its designated contractors), and its subsidiaries and affiliates under common control ("Oracle") the following permissions in connection with the Event:
  1. Permission to make sound and visual recordings of any and all presentation(s) I give in relation to the Event (“Presentation”) on film, tape, disk, and/or other forms of media, whether in analog or digital format (the “Recordings”), including permission to incorporate into the Recordings, in whole or in part, any presentation materials that I use in connection with my Presentation, including without limitation any written speeches, visual aids, or other visual or written materials used, performed, displayed and/or provided by me in connection with the Presentation (the “Presentation Materials.”)
  2. Permission to use and distribute my name, voice, biographic material, likeness, and portrait (hereinafter collectively referred to as my “Likeness”) in connection with my Presentation, for the purpose of publicizing or promoting my Presentation(s) at and participation in the Event, including permission to incorporate my Likeness into the Recordings, in whole or in part.
  3. Permission to use my Organization’s name and logo in connection with my Presentation and incorporate them into the Recordings, for the sole purpose of identifying my Organization, my affiliation with my Organization, and my presentation at and participation in the Event. Oracle’s use of the company name and logo inures solely to the benefit of my Organization.
  4. Permission to use, copy, translate, reformat, edit, broadcast, publish, perform, promote, distribute, digitize, transmit, make derivative works based upon, and/or display all or parts of my Presentation, my Likeness, my Presentation Materials, the Recordings, and/or a transcript of the Recordings. This includes, without limitation, the right to make and distribute a DVD, CD, flash memory card, memory stick, PC card, audio tape, video tape, and/or other recording of the Event proceedings that contain the Recordings in whole or in part, the right to distribute the Recordings in whole or in part via download from Oracle’s affiliated web sites, and the right to distribute, display, broadcast, rebroadcast, and reproduce the Recordings, in any and all media existing now or later developed, as part of Event proceedings and archives that Oracle makes available on its web sites or elsewhere. Any such use must be in connection with the Event or future versions of the Event, and must not be misleading or reflect negatively on my Organization or me.
I understand that neither my Organization nor I will receive any compensation for granting these permissions. Oracle is not granted any other permissions or rights with respect to my Likeness, my Presentation, the Recordings, or the Presentation Materials.

I represent and warrant that I have the right to the Presentation and Presentation Materials except any Presentation Materials listed herein, that the publication of this Presentation and Presentation Materials will not infringe on the patent, trademark, copyright rights of others, nor is it slanderous, libelous, or an invasion of any person’s right of privacy or publicity. I further represent and warrant that I have full power to grant this license to Oracle.
