You represent and warrant that your Submissions will not contain any material that:

  • is false, inaccurate, or misleading; infringes any third party’s copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights, or rights of publicity or privacy; violates a nondisclosure agreement, or violates any law or regulation (including, without limitation, those governing export control, unfair competition, or false advertising); is defamatory, constitutes trade libel or product disparagement, or is unlawfully threatening or harassing; is obscene or contains child pornography; or

  • interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Project, any activities conducted on or through the Project websites, or any networks through which you access the Project.

You represent and warrant that:

  • your Submissions will be original and/or you will obtain all third-party permission necessary for the use of the Submissions as set forth below; you are the sole and exclusive owner of all rights herein conveyed to Lytica and its affiliates; and

Submissions do not reflect the views of Lytica and Lytica does not verify, endorse, of vouch for any Submission. Lytica does, however, enforce these Terms and Conditions. Lytica reserves the right, at any time, without prior notice and without limiting any and all other rights it may have, at law or in equity, to (a) modify, refuse or remove a Submission; (b) revoke the applicable contributor’s access to the Project; and (c) use any technological, legal, operational or other means available to Lytica to enforce the provisions of these Terms and Conditions, including, without limitation, blocking specific IP addresses or deactivating the applicable contributor’s registration.

  • incorporate the Submissions and the Image in other works in any form, media or technology now known or later developed throughout the universe, and reproduce, publish, display and otherwise distribute the same.

For sake of clarity, by virtue of the above grant, you also give Lytica permission to copy your Submissions and the Image as part of the normal backup process and/or to archive discussions containing your Submissions and/or the Image.

You waive all moral rights in your Submissions.

You understand that Lytica will not compensate contributors for their Submissions, even though Lytica may sell the Book.

Lytica reserves the right to assume, at its sole expense, the exclusive defense and control of any claim, action or other matter for which you are required to indemnify us, and all negotiations for settlement or compromise thereof, and you agree to fully cooperate with Lytica in the defense of any such claim, action, settlement or compromise negotiations, as requested by Lytica.
