What is a "Trusted Studio"?
In the livecam and videochat industry, we have lots of good companies that are trying their best to help training and promote successful models, run a legal business and respect fairness rules in relation with videochat models and livecam sites.
However, like in any industry in the world, there are some bad apples in the basket also, studios that work outside the law, don’t pay their models, use “secret” contracts that are never given to models and so on. To protect you from working with an untrusted studio we created the “Trusted Studio” (Studio de incredere) certification. The studios that are Webcamming approved, are 100% safe.
The studios that display the certification logo can be found on this page only (because we expect some fraudsters to steal the logo and use it without permission) and they are guaranteed by us to respect the following guidelines:
1. There is a written contract between the studio and each model, signed before the models start her/his activity in at least 2 copies, one being given to the model immediately.
2. The contract clearly specifies who is paying income tax, social securities and medical insurance for the revenue paid to the models.
3. There are clear rules about the broadcasting schedule, payment dates and percentages, bonuses of any kind. The rules are written in the contract or any addendum to it, signed by both parties in at least 2 copies, one being given to the model immediately.
4. In case any penalties can be applied to any side in special cases, they are clearly mentioned in the contract or any addendum to it, signed by both parties in at least 2 copies, one being given to the model immediately.
5. The contract clearly specifies how it can be canceled by any side and what are the rules for both sides after the contract termination: usage of intellectual property, permission to work with the studio clients (websites), brand property, aso.
6. In case of late payment by the studio with no reason, the model in entitled to compensations in fixed amount of a % of unpaid amount for any day/week/month of delay.
7. The studio will offer each model reasonable training, support, marketing, photo and video shooting needed for her artistic performance to be successful.
In case of a misunderstanding between a Trusted Studio and a third party (model, website, aso), Webcaming.ro can be asked to act as an mediator and look into claims made by both sides, choosing the best solution for everyone based on the guidelines above. So, if you choose to be a model with any of the Trusted Studios, we will protect you against any abuse.
