Unsolicited Submissions

We are pleased to hear from visitors to our web site.  Unfortunately, however, our long-standing company policy does not allow us to accept or consider unsolicited creative ideas, suggestions or materials. We hope you will understand that it is the intent of this policy to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by us or under the direction of us might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work.  Please do not send us any unsolicited materials such as ideas, concepts, pitches, suggestions, stories, screenplays, treatments, formats, artwork, photographs, drawings, videos, audiovisual works, musical compositions (including lyrics), sound recordings, program formats, characterizations and/or other similar materials (“Unsolicited Submissions”).

If, despite our request, you intentionally or unintentionally send us Unsolicited Submissions, we (and our licensees, distributors, agents, representatives and other authorized users) shall be entitled to unrestricted use of such Unsolicited Submissions for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without the requirement of any permission from or payment to you or to any other person or entity.  Further, you hereby appoint us as your agent with full power to enter into and execute any document and/or do any act we may consider appropriate to confirm the grant of rights, consents, agreements, assignments and waivers set forth in these terms of use.  To the extent any “moral rights,” “ancillary rights,” or similar rights in or to the Unsolicited Submissions exist, you agree not to enforce any such rights as to us or our licensees, distributors, agents, representatives and other authorized users, and you shall procure the same agreement not to enforce from any others who may possess such rights.

You agree that any Unsolicited Submissions you make are not being made in confidence or trust and that no confidential or fiduciary relationship is intended or created between you and us in any way.  No Unsolicited Submissions shall be subject to any obligation of confidentiality on our part and we shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Unsolicited Submission.
