Post when is a use (license) agreement needed?
Someone just emailed me asking to provide a copy of a time-lapse movie that they would like to include in a client presentation that may lead to them wanting to use it for future production! Although this is really cool, I'm not sure if I need a use agreement or not.

Does this require a formal use agreement or just something informal via. email? Maybe the original email is considered an informal use agreement as long as some general limits are discussed??? I'm new to the business side of all this and not crazy about turning over footage for noneducational uses. Any tips?

By the way, I just received a copy of Graphic Artists Guild Handbook: Pricing & Ethical Guidelines which covers all sorts of legal agreements but have only skimmed it.

Canon, Arduino, AE, etc.

At the very least, put it in writing in an email, and make sure they acknowledge it / reply to it.

If you have any doubts about it, print an agreement and send it to them outlining the exact terms of use.

I always like to have some written record to fall back on if needed, even if it is just an email.
