Guidelines on creating legally compliant listings
To help you create listings that do not infringe on the intellectual
property rights of others, we've prepared the following guidelines.
While we hope that you find these guidelines useful, please understand
that they are not intended to constitute legal advice. These are
general guidelines that should be used as rules of thumb. If you
have specific questions about the legality of your item, you should
contact an intellectual property attorney.
Create your own content
You should avoid "borrowing" text or images (including
photos) from other web sites, without specific permission from the
owner. Contrary to popular belief, simply because images and text
may be found somewhere on the Internet does not necessarily mean
that they are unprotected by copyright laws. Copyright laws apply
to the Internet, and manufacturers or other copyright owners may
object to the use of text or images that they own or created.
Your exercise must be your original work
Only submit exercises that are your original work. If you are modifying
or using part of someone else’s work in your exercise, it's
your obligation to provide us with permission for its use from the
copyright owner of this work prior to submission.
Granting use of your exercise
By submitting your exercise, you are granting permission to Factivities
and its licensees non-exclusive rights to reproduce, distribute,
publish, display, and create derivative works using your exercise
in accordance with its published intent.
Dispute Resolution Process
Because Factivities is not an expert in your intellectual property
rights, and cannot verify that everyone who submits an exercise
truly has the rights they say they have, we need your help in identifying
items, which do not appear on their face to infringe your rights.
