Company shall have the right to use, refrain from using, change, modify, add to, subtract from the Services and Proceeds. Employee hereby waives any and all so-called "moral rights" of authors.

Employee hereby acknowledges that any compensation payable hereunder and/or pursuant to an applicable Union Agreement includes adequate and equitable remuneration for the Rental and Lending Rights and constitutes a complete buy-out of all Rental and Lending Rights in perpetuity and agrees that Company shall collect and retain for Company's own account any and all amounts payable to Employee in respect of Rental and Lending Rights.
