Play Royalty and Use Information
Plays or dramatic reading are subject to performance royalties for each performance, whether for free, for fee or income, or any other way. This agreement is based on trust, and downloading and using the script is acknowledgment that you understand the terms. Paper copies of this material, after paid download, may be made for one production within one organization.
For the purpose of determining royalties, including for use as part of a larger production or use in a derivative work, performance of this material is considered the following:
A performance is a presentation to an audience of any reading, dramatic reading, staged reading, or staged play production, including the presentation of a recording of any of these performances. Seefor limitations.
“One production” is determined by audience number in the Royalty Levels that follows.
Royalty level 1: One production means: “Cumulative aggregate audience totals under 100 over a one month period.” Additional productions (meaning additional aggregate audience numbers or beyond one month) are subject to additional royalty fees.
Royalty level 2: One production means: “Cumulative aggregate audience totals under 1000 over a one month period.” Additional productions (meaning additional aggregate audience numbers or beyond one month) are subject to additional royalty fees.
Royalty level 3: This level is negotiable for audiences over 1000, or for other use. Contact Dorian Scott Cole.
These dramas are copyrighted and are not public domain. They may not be sold, mass distributed, published, placed on film, DVD, or other audio or video form as a script or production for review or profit, or made electronically available in any form, without permission from Dorian Scott Cole.
Reverse engineering the Preview to obtain a copy is a breach of copyright.
Recording of productions for personal viewing is acceptable. Personal viewing is defined by the CVLI license for Christian video as viewing within the home with a few friends. Displaying a recorded production before an audience is considered a “performance” by the CVLI license for Christian video, and is subject to royalties. See the Royalty levels above.
Performance of this material, or any part of this material, in a film or in any electronic video form can only be done under royalty and with permission from Dorian Scott Cole. For example, if the performance of this play is recorded for use or repeated use in a sermon, Sunday School, or youth group, it is subject to the same royalty as a live performance. See the Replay Fee in the Royalty Fees.
These plays must be downloaded again (pay for a download) or the royalty renewed for each additional production from http://www.onespiritresources.com.
Writing and performance credit The writer of a play should be credited in the play announcements and playbill, such as a church bulletin or announcement. If you change the wording of this play and present it, you must list the credit as “Adapted from a play by Dorian Scott Cole.”
Adaptations that substantially change the meaning or wording, for use as a derivative work, or within another production, require advance approval from Dorian Scott Cole.
You cannot list the writer as any other person than Dorian Scott Cole, even if the work is a derivative work. The director, who typically has control of the production and alterations, should be noted.
The intention of the royalty levels and pricing is to make these dramas very accessible to people and organizations, so that price is not a determining factor. Children's sermons, if included, are included in the fee. The royalty choices for each play will display when you click Preview or Buy. This is a trust/honor system. To pay for additional royalty fees, simply pay for another download. Note that an unplanned 25% increase in audience size is allowable with no additional download.
