New media should pretty much mean social media and online stuff I would think
I would definitely ask them to change the in perpetuity part and replace with something that states one project only

New may refer to a new medium that has not yet been invented. In perpetuity is major league red flag. I would walk away from this - only use your own form. IMHO your contract must be explicit in the extreme that you are licensing for one use only - this does the opposite.

Hey filmguy, I'm going through this process right now but with the photo side of things, and some other things to look out for are (obviously) exclusive rights, anytime the words 'freely assigned' are mentioned, (which means if the agency goes belly-up, they can sell your work to a new agency with no prior notification or consent from you), and it's very important to note how you will be able to document your usages. So, in the contract I'm looking at currently, there is no mention of sales reporting and it also says I am required to send them an invoice before I can get paid, (which seems strange to me??). Anywho, not sure if this helps or not, these may be things you already know about. Good luck!
