    Agreement for Stop Lying In Politics Ltd. and Radiator Productions Ltd.Crowdfunding Campaigns:

    Last Updated: January 17th, 2024.

    1. Introduction 

    1.1 This crowdfunding campaign ("Campaign") is initiated byRadiator Productions Ltd, a film production company, in a brand partnership
    with Stop Lying In Politics Ltd, a not-for-profit social enterprise, for the
    purpose of raising funds to create a new documentary film with the working
    title of "The Power of Lies: The Story of Lying In Politics and the Fight
    to make it illegal." The director of the film is Marcus J Ball. Please
    read these terms and conditions carefully.

    1.2 The objective of Stop Lying In Politics Ltd. is to establish thatlying in politics is a criminal offense. It does this on a not-for-profit,
    social enterprise basis.

    1.3 The objective of Radiator Productions Ltd. is to produce adocumentary film telling the story of lying in politics and the fight to make
    it illegal. It does this on a for-profit basis. It is a separate legal entity
    from Stop Lying In Politics Ltd.

    2. Purpose of the Campaign 

    2.1 The primary objective of this Campaign is to advocate for theestablishment of lying in politics as a criminal offense, addressing the
    inherent harms associated with deceptive practices by politicians.

    2.2 Lying in politics has far-reaching consequences, including but notlimited to the destruction of lives, erosion of trust in democratic systems,
    initiation of wars based on deception, manipulation of elections, and sabotage
    of the legitimacy of referendums.

    2.3 It is noteworthy that in nearly all other professions, lying isalready considered illegal. Professionals in various fields, such as company
    directors, advertisers, and product or service providers, are legally
    prohibited from deceiving the public.

    2.4 This disparity has raised concerns about inequality under the law,as politicians and judges have not implemented the same level of legal
    regulation to prevent them from lying to the public.

    2.5 This Campaign firmly believes that addressing this imbalance iscrucial to the betterment of society and the advancement of public trust.

    2.6 Our goal is to bring about a legal framework that establishes lyingin politics as a criminal offense to hold politicians accountable for their
    words and actions.

    2.7 To this end, we aim to utilize existing legal concepts, such as thecommon law offense of misconduct in public office, which has been previously
    employed to prosecute lying public office holders (e.g., R V Speechley and the
    case against PC Keith Wallis).

    2.8 We believe that the key to achieving this goal is to successfullyprosecute a Member of Parliament for lying, with Boris Johnson identified as a
    significant target due to the substantial evidence of him lying to the public
    about matters of national importance. There is more video evidence against him
    than there is against any other politician because of the volume of his lies in
    combination with his fame and the amount of video footage the press record of
    him.

    2.9 The documentary film produced as a result of this Campaign willdelve deep into this critical narrative, offering a comprehensive exploration
    of the lying in politics story and its fundamental lessons.

    2.10 Furthermore, the funds obtained through the sale of the documentarywill be used to initiate a second prosecution of this nature. The narrative
    surrounding the first prosecution and the challenges faced in its pursuit will
    also feature prominently within the film.

    2.11 The funds raised in this Campaign will be used for the productionof the documentary film, "The Power of Lies: The Story of Lying In
    Politics and the Fight to make it illegal." It is important to note that
    Radiator Productions Ltd is a for-profit company, and any proceeds obtained
    from the sale of the film belong to Radiator Productions Ltd which belongs to
    Marcus J Ball. If the sale of the film is as successful as hoped then some of
    these funds will be used to reinvest in the work of Stop Lying In Politics Ltd,
    a not-for-profit social enterprise. It is also hoped by Marcus J Ball that, if
    there is sufficient funding, backers will be able to have their contributions
    refunded. However, with no confirmed sale at the time of writing, this is
    unconfirmed.

    3. Backer Liability

    3.1 Backers participating in this Campaign have no legalresponsibilities or obligations beyond their limited financial contribution. The
    worst that can occur is that backers will lose the funds they have donated, and
    the success of the film and the wider campaign is not guaranteed. Backers are
    not legally liable for any outcomes, financial or otherwise, arising from this
    Campaign. Their participation is voluntary. All legal and financial risk beyond
    this is absorbed by Marcus J Ball as private prosecutor, Stop Lying In Politics
    Ltd, and Radiator Productions Ltd.

    4. Fundraising Responsibility 

    4.1 Radiator Productions Ltd is responsible for this Campaign. While itis a for-profit entity, we are committed to upholding the highest fundraising
    behaviour standards.

    5. Acknowledgment of Consideration 

    5.1 By participating in this Campaign and making a contribution, backersacknowledge that they are providing valuable consideration to support the goals
    of the documentary project and the broader Campaign. Radiator Productions Ltd
    values the contributions made by backers and is committed to fulfilling its
    obligations in line with the campaign's objectives.

    6. Consideration Provided by Project Organizer 

    6.1 Backers acknowledge and understand that Marcus J Ball, as theproject organizer and director of the documentary, provides valuable consideration
    by dedicating time, expertise, and effort to plan, manage, and execute the
    Campaign. This includes taking on significant legal, financial, and
    reputational risks as a private prosecutor and filmmaker.

    6.2 Backers recognize that Marcus J Ball's commitment is vital to thesuccess and realization of the documentary project and the broader mission to
    combat dishonesty in politics. Marcus J Ball has been working full time on this
    Campaign since June 2016. He has spent several years of that period buried in
    court debts as a result of his personal and professional dedication to this
    cause.

    7. Responsibilities and Contributions of Marcus J Ball 

    7.1 Marcus J Ball, as the project organizer, assumes significantresponsibilities throughout the Campaign, documentary production, and potential
    private criminal prosecution case. These responsibilities include, but are not
    limited to fundraising, financial management (with the assistance of an
    accountant), record keeping, evidence gathering, investigations, website
    management, digital and email marketing, public relations, film production, and
    all other duties associated with the successful completion of high-level
    crowdfunding campaigns, documentary filmmaking, and potential legal actions.

    7.2 Mr. Ball is chiefly responsible for these tasks and may perform thempersonally or engage professional experts on a hired, employed, or freelance
    basis, including but not limited to lawyers, directors of photography, editors,
    animators, communications consultants, and various other professionals. His
    responsibilities in this project are considerable and require a substantial
    commitment of longer than conventional full time working hours and effort.

    7.3 It is important to note that Mr. Ball assumes significant legal,financial, and reputational risks as part of his role, including the absorption
    of these risks on behalf of the backers who support this project. Despite the
    magnitude of his responsibilities and risk exposure, his compensation for this
    work is minimal, based on a per-hour basis equivalent to minimum wage or less
    than this amount. The volume of work requires that Mr Ball works far more than
    full time hours per week.

    8. Intellectual Property 

    8.1 All intellectual property rights related to this documentary film,"The Power of Lies: The Story of Lying In Politics and the Fight to make
    it illegal," are owned by Radiator Productions Ltd. All intellectual
    property rights related to private prosecution cases and the fight to establish
    lying in politics as a criminal offense belong to Stop Lying In Politics Ltd.
    Crowdfund backers, investors, or other financial beneficiaries do not acquire
    any rights, licenses, or claims to the documentary's intellectual property.

    9. Use of Funds

    9.1 Backers acknowledge and understand that the funds raised throughthis Campaign may be allocated to various expenses and costs associated with
    the mission at large. These expenses may include, but are not limited to, legal

    or cost that contributes to the success of the mission at large as determined
    by Marcus J Ball.

    9.2 The allocation of funds is made at the discretion of Marcus J Ball,recognizing his role and responsibility in managing and advancing the
    objectives of this project.

    9.3 Additionally, the funds may also eventually be invested withfinancial services professionals for the long-term financial sustainability of
    this work. Such investment decisions are made at the discretion of Marcus J
    Ball to ensure the project's continued success and financial stability. At the
    time of writing this has not yet occurred but it is a practical option as the
    long term campaign objectives develop.

    10. Warranty 

    10.1 Radiator Productions Ltd, in collaboration with Stop Lying InPolitics Ltd, provides a limited warranty for backers of this Campaign. We
    warrant that the documentary film produced as a result of this Campaign will be
    made to the best of our abilities and in accordance with the information
    provided throughout the Campaign.

    distribution.

    10.3 This warranty does not encompass the financial or legal aspects ofthe Campaign, which are subject to the terms and conditions outlined in this
    agreement.

    11. Challenging Nature of the Campaign 

    11.1 By participating in this Campaign, you acknowledge that the goalsand objectives set forth are ambitious and challenging. The success of the
    Campaign is not guaranteed, and the outcome may be uncertain. We are dedicated
    to the importance of this cause and are committed to its pursuit but as in all
    worthwhile advances there is no certainty of success. This is regardless of the
    just and vital nature of this endeavour.

    12. Transparency and Donor Communication 

    12.1 Before accepting any donations, we will provide donors with clearinformation about the film's purpose and objectives, including details about
    Radiator Productions Ltd and Stop Lying In Politics Ltd.

    12.2 Marcus J Ball will communicate with backers of the campaign,primarily though email updates and Twitter/X communications. Sensitive
    information will be held back when required, to protect the work from those who
    may wish it to be impeded.

    13. Risk Acknowledgment 

    13.1 By participating in this Campaign, backers acknowledge andunderstand the inherent risks associated with filmmaking and documentary
    production, including but not limited to unforeseen delays, budgetary
    constraints, and other unexpected challenges.

    14. Refund Policy 

    14.1 Backers participating in this Campaign acknowledge and understandthe importance and vital need to protect the funds of this project. In
    recognition of the significance of the work being undertaken, backers are not
    required to have their funds refunded under any circumstances.

    14.2 It is important to note that the likelihood or possibility existsthat the funds contributed to this project may have already been allocated and
    spent to advance the objectives of this work.

    14.3 In the event that Marcus J Ball successfully sells the documentaryfilm for an exceedingly high price, it is his hope and intention to reimburse
    backers with their contributions. However, this decision is made at Mr. Ball's
    discretion, and the priorities for the allocation of funds, in order of
    importance, are as follows:

    a. The successful realization of the mission to establish lying inpolitics as a criminal offense and the advancement of all other associated
    works.

    b. Marcus J Ball's financial, reputational, and legal security,recognizing the substantial risks and commitments he has undertaken as well as
    his ownership of the project at large.

    c. Backers potentially receiving refunds of their contributions, onceobjective a. and b. are complete and if/when Mr. Ball considers that adequate
    funds are available (from the film sale).

    This refund policy reflects the mission-first approach, ensuring Mr.Ball's security, and, as a third priority, consideration for the possibility of
    backer refunds. Without Mr Ball’s efforts the campaign ceases to continue,
    which is why his needs are so important to meet. Mr Ball holds Key Man status
    within this project and his wellbeing is therefore vital to protect.

    15. Use of Backer Information

    15.1 Backers' personal information provided during this Campaign will beused solely for the purpose of the Campaign and will not be shared with third
    parties (aside from service providers such as Mailchimp and others who allow us
    to communicate with backers, analyse data, and gain other strategic benefits).
    We are committed to maintaining the privacy and security of this information.
    We will not sell your data.

    16. Allocation of Risks and Rewards 

    16.1 Marcus J Ball, as the sole owner of Radiator Productions Ltd. andStop Lying In Politics Ltd., has shouldered significant legal, financial, and
    reputational risks throughout his role as a private prosecutor and in the
    pursuit of projects like this Campaign. This includes substantial personal
    financial liabilities incurred during legal actions against public figures.
    Stop Lying In Politics Ltd. and Mr Ball have so far taken on more than £250,000
    in court and other debts as a part of their risk absorption responsibilities.

    16.2 While the Campaign seeks to raise funds to support the goals of thedocumentary film and the broader objectives of Stop Lying In Politics Ltd.,
    Marcus J Ball, as the owner of Radiator Productions Ltd., is the primary
    individual exposed to legal and financial risks.

    16.3 In the event that the documentary film achieves significantfinancial success, Marcus J Ball, as the owner of Radiator Productions Ltd.,
    has the discretion to allocate the funds as he sees fit, including for the
    continuation of the work by Stop Lying In Politics Ltd., the resolution of
    personal financial liabilities, and the building of a future for himself.

    16.4 This arrangement acknowledges the disproportionate responsibilityand risks borne by Marcus J Ball in his role as a private prosecutor and
    filmmaker. It also aims to establish an accepted narrative that individuals who
    engage in challenging powerful and corrupt officials and politicians can do so
    without facing irreparable reputational damage and financial ruin. There must
    be a way up and forward for Mr Ball and others who may follow in his footsteps.
    This is it. Without such an arrangement other private prosecutors working for
    the general public benefit will be less likely to continue in this tradition.
    The only thing Marcus has to sell is his story after an immense personal effort
    since 2016, it is right that he personally should benefit from that sale.
