I waive any right to inspect or approve the finished Photographs, and I waive any right to Monetary Payment, now and forever, for the Use of the Photographs. I agree to release and hold the Guild harmless for Publishing and Distribution of the Photographs from and against any claims, damages or liability arising from or related to the Use of the Photographs.
