2.1 Description

2.2 Submissions

All submissions that you submit in response to a Submission Request must be entirely original works of your own authorship that were solely created by you. All submissions must not have been made available, published, shared, or otherwise distributed at any time, to any other party, in any medium. The Content Panel and / or Clients may reject submissions you have submitted in response to a Submission Request. Once you have submitted a submission you may not make the Submission (or any derivative thereof) available in part or in whole anywhere else (inside or outside of the service) until it has been rejected by a client.

2.3 Accepted Posts

When a Client approves a Submission it becomes an Accepted Post, you are directly contracting to sell Accepted Posts to the Client. The Content Panel has no obligation to you whatsoever with regard to any Accepted Post or Submission (with the exception of The Content Panel’s payment obligations). When your submission is accepted by a client and becomes an Accepted Post you agree to irrevocably and unconditionally assign to the applicable Client all right, title, and interest in and to said Accepted Post including all worldwide intellectual property rights. If any rights in the Accepted Posts (including moral rights) cannot as a matter of law be assigned by you to the Client then you (a) Irrevocably and unconditionally waive the enforcement of such rights and all claims and causes of action of any kind against the Client with respect to such rights. (b)To the extent you cannot make such waiver, you unconditionally grant to the Client a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, fully-paid license with the right to sublicense through unlimited levels of sublicensees, under all and any such rights to reproduce, create derivative works of, distribute, publically perform, publically display, digitally transmit and otherwise use the Accepted Post in any medium or format now known or hearafter discovered, and to exercise any and all other present of future rights in the Accepted Post.

For each individual violation of this section of the Content Provider Terms you agree to pay The Content Panel the greater of either $5,000 USD or twenty (20) times the amount of your highest value invoice.
