Submissions, Postings and E-mails

The Warner Group is interested in hearing from you regarding your questions or comments about our Site. However, the Warner Group does not accept or consider unsolicited submissions of any kind (e.g. scripts, treatments, concepts, or any other materials) in any format, by any means of transmission (including email). Any such submissions are either returned to the sender without being reviewed and/or deleted or discarded without being reviewed. Therefore, please do not send any unsolicited submissions to any member of the Warner Group.

From time to time, areas on this Site may expressly request submissions of concepts, stories, or other potential content from you (” Invited Submissions ”). Where this is the case, please carefully read any specific rules or other terms and conditions which appear elsewhere on this Site to govern those submissions (” Additional Terms ”), as they will affect your legal rights. Unless otherwise stated in any Additional Terms, you hereby irrevocably assign to the Warner Group, all rights throughout the world and in perpetuity, or for the maximum period permitted by law, in any Invited Submissions that you make including without limitation, all and any ideas, suggestions, themes, characterisations, concepts, drawings, designs, images, film, video, software, music, text, stories, dialogue, titles and other material contained therein. Unless otherwise agreed in writing with the Warner Group, such assignment shall be royalty free and you hereby agree not look to the Warner Group for any remuneration. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you waive all moral rights in respect of the Invited Submissions which you now or at any time are entitled in any part of the world and confirm that no such rights have been asserted.

The Warner Group shall be entitled to use, reproduce, edit, re-edit, modify, adapt, publish, translate, license, create derivative works from and distribute or incorporate all or any part of the Invited Submissions (without payment to, consideration for, or liability to you) throughout the universe for any purpose and in any and all media, markets and languages, in any manner and through any method, form, medium or technology now known or later devised to the extent permitted by applicable law.

Furthermore, you undertake, represent and warrant that (i) you hold all the necessary rights, licensees, consents and permissions, required to make any and all Invited Submissions that you submit and to grant the assignment above; and (ii) any and all Invited Submissions that you submit do not violate, breach or infringe any laws, regulations or codes or otherwise infringe anyone’s legal rights (including, without limitation, those of intellectual property, moral rights, confidentiality, defamation, libel, personality, publicity and privacy).

Both the Terms of Use and any Additional Terms apply in full to any Invited Submissions you make. To the extent there is any conflict or ambiguity between these Terms of Use and any Additional Terms, the Additional Terms shall prevail.

If no Additional Terms govern those submissions, then these Terms of Use will apply in full to any Invited Submissions you make.
