Terms and Conditions
OWNERSHIP OF MATERIALS
Company does not accept unsolicited submissions for motion pictures, television programs, web sites or any other products or services. It is the intent of this policy to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by or on behalf of our professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative ideas or materials. Therefore, please do not make any such unsolicited submissions to us through this web site or otherwise.
If you send or post certain specific submissions at our request (e.g., via postings in connection with contests) or if you send us creative suggestions, ideas, notes, photographs, screenplays, artwork, or any other creative materials (“Submissions”) despite our request that you not send us any unsolicited Submissions or other creative materials, any such Submission shall be deemed, and shall remain, our property. None of the Submissions shall be subject to any obligation of confidence on our part and we shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submissions. Without limitation of the foregoing, we shall exclusively own all rights now known or hereafter existing to the Submissions of every kind and nature throughout the universe and shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Submissions for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to the provider of the Submissions. You acknowledge that, with respect to any claim you may have relating to or arising out of our actual or alleged exploitation or use of any Submission, the damage, if any, thereby caused will not be irreparable or otherwise sufficient to entitle you to injunctive or other equitable relief or to in any way enjoin the production, distribution, exhibition or other exploitation of any production based on or allegedly based on the Submission, and your rights and remedies in any such event shall be strictly limited to the right to recover damages, if any, in an action at law.

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND COMPANY HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of this web site will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent Cogency Global, Inc., 850 New Burton Road, Suite 201, Dover, DE 19904. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or Company may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
