|Code of Credits - Credit Language for Your Contract|
The Producers Guild has proposed the following language for inclusion in all contracts for producing services. Please ask that it be inserted into your contracts going forward so as to ensure fair credit practices within your production.
"The parties to this Agreement agree to abide by the Code of Credits promulgated by the Producers Guild of America (’PGA’) as they may be amended from time to time. Any controversy or dispute concerning a screen credit of ‘produced by’ for theatrical motion pictures, will be resolved pursuant to the PGA Rules Governing Arbitration of Producing Credits (’PGA Rules’) in Los Angeles County, California. Each party hereby waives any right to adjudicate any such controversy in any other court or forum. The result of the arbitration will be final and binding on the parties, and judgment on the PGA Arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The parties submit to the jurisdiction of the courts of the State of California for the purpose of confirming any award rendered by the PGA Arbitrator. In order to further the arbitration process, the parties hereby consent to the PGA contacting third party participants in the production for the purposes of investigating any controversy or dispute concerning said producing credits.”
