WORK FOR HIRE AGREEMENT

To Phase One Network, Inc.:


In consideration of my desire to participate in the recording of sound recordings listed on the
attached Schedule A (hereinafter referred to as Songs), I hereby irrevocably grant to you,
your successors and assigns, the right to record my voice (including, without limitation, my
speaking, singing and/or musical performance), likeness (including, without limitation, any still
photographs, artistic or creative renderings, or caricatures, normal actions, gestures, facial
expressions), name (including, without limitation, and/or any professional name or sobriquet)
(collectively referred to as, Likeness) on videotape, film or any other audio and/or visual
medium; to edit such Likeness in connection with the production, exhibition and exploitation of
the Songs (or any portion thereof) and all ancillary rights therein, in all media, now known or
hereafter devised, throughout the universe in perpetuity and in connection with advertising,
publicizing and promotion of the Songs, broadcaster programming services or program
operations and activities and those of its licensees in any media, now known or hereafter devised.
I agree that you shall be the exclusive owner of all copyright and other rights in and to the Songs,
my Likeness, and any excerpts therefrom, under the theory of Work for Hire, and that you will
have the exclusive right to use, and license or otherwise authorize others to use, them, in any
manner you wish and in any and all media no known or hereafter devised, throughout the
universe in perpetuity. If for any reason a court of law finds the Songs to be invalid as created on
a Work for Hire basis, I hereby irrevocably assign any and all of my copyright and other property
interests, and any moral or droit moral rights to my Likeness as used in, and in connection to, the
Songs, in perpetuity in and throughout the universe to be used in any medium, audio, visual or
otherwise, now known or hereafter devised.
I hereby release, indemnify and hold harmless you and the respective partners, divisions,
subsidiary and affiliated divisions and companies, distributors, assignees, licensees, and affiliates,
and the respective shareholders, directors, officers, employees and agents of the foregoing, from
any and all claims, demands, liabilities, costs and expenses (including, without limitation,
reasonable attorneys fees and court costs) arising from the use of my Likeness and the use of
ideas or words expressed by me in the Songs or acts done by me in connection therewith. In the
event of any question of your performance of your obligations, I agree that I shall not seek
injunctive relief against you (and/or your assignee(s)), and that my relief in such circumstances
will be limited to a claim for monetary damages.
New York law governs this agreement. Any litigation, action or proceeding ensuing out of or
relating to this release shall be instituted in a court of competent jurisdiction (whether state or
federal) in the City of New York and County of New York. You may transfer and assign this
agreement or any and/or all of its rights or privileges hereunder to any entity or individual
without restriction. This release shall be binding on all of my successors-in-interest and heirs. I
consent to service of process by registered mail, return-receipt requested at the address stated
below. This is the complete and binding agreement between Phase One Communications and me,
and it supersedes all prior understandings and/or communications, both oral and written, with
anyone in respect to its subject matter.
