ALTA Unlicensed Representation Statement

(CHATSWORTH, CA) -- The Agency Licensed Trade Association, a new trade group of adult-industry representation companies, has issued a statement regarding Ideal Image Management, which they say is not licensed as a talent agency.

"We want to protect the talent in the adult industry from unlicensed representation," ALTA co-founder Shy Love said. "Of course we would like them to sign up with a licensed ALTA agency, but it's important that their representation be licensed."

The ALTA statement follows:

"Are you with Ideal Image Management?

"If Yes Please Read!

"By State Law you must be a licensed talent agency (not a management company) in California in order to procure a job for talent.

"If Ideal Image has attempted contacting you as talent and stated they have a job for you on a set date; they have set up a price you get paid; they call you with details of the job (like location, wardrobe, makeup, talent); and collect commissions: This is a job of an agent not a manager.

"A manager is allowed to manage your career, and an agent is allowed to procure you work. If this happened to you, you are entitled to get all of the agency fees that you have paid to that company reimbursed in entirety. To do this, contact the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement and put in a written complaint. The telephone number for the California Department of Licensing Labor Commissioner is (415) 703-4846.

"As of 11:43 am on February 7, 2012, the DLSE has informed us that Ideal Image Management has not filed or attempted to file for a License for their agency.

"As a final note, talent should never have to pay your management company for booking your jobs. It is against the law. Management companies are not legally allowed to book jobs or charge commissions on jobs they booked. Any talent with an unlicensed agency can put a claim in and get reimbursed 100 percent of all commissions paid to the unlicensed agency by that management company.

"The state of California maintains a database of licensed talent agencies at http://www.dir.CA.gov/databases/dlselr/talag.html and ALTA recommends that all talent verify that their representation is licensed."

ALTA was started in January. Adult industry talent representation company members are ATM/LA, Motley Models, Oc Modeling and Type 9 Models.
