Downgrade: A principal performer is entitled to residuals and may not be downgraded as long as his/her face appears in the commercial.  If his/her face does not appear but his/her performance otherwise remains, the performer must be notified of a downgrade and paid a downgrade fee. A downgrade fee is not less than a session fee. Thereafter, the performer will not receive residual payments.

Outgrade. If a principal performer’s photography or soundtrack is completely edited out of the final version of the commercial, the performer must be notified of the outgrade. The notification must be made within 60 days after the completion of employment but in no event later than 15 business days after the first use of the commercial.  No additional fees or residuals are paid to an outgraded performer.
