Introduction to the KoldCast TV Upload Service
Uploading video via the KoldCast TV Upload Service does NOT guarantee that your video submission will be accepted by KoldCast for display and distribution via KoldCast TV.
1. KOLDCAST TV does not claim any ownership rights in the text, files, images, photos, video, sounds, musical works, works of authorship, or any other materials (collectively, "Content") that you post to KOLDCAST TV. After posting your Content to KOLDCAST TV, you continue to retain all ownership rights in such Content, and you continue to have the right to use your Content in any way you choose, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing between KOLDCAST TV and you. By displaying or publishing ("posting") any Content on or through KOLDCAST TV, you hereby grant to KOLDCAST TV a license to use, modify, edit, compile, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce, and distribute such Content in any manner throughout the world.
2. Without this license, KOLDCAST TV would be unable to provide many of KOLDCAST TV's services. The license you grant to KOLDCAST TV is non-exclusive (meaning you are free to license your Content to anyone else in addition to KOLDCAST TV, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing between KOLDCAST TV and you.), fully-paid and royalty-free (meaning that KOLDCAST TV is not required to pay you for the use of the Content that you post on KOLDCAST TV), sub-licensable (so that KOLDCAST TV is able to use its affiliates and subcontractors such as Internet content delivery networks or overseas cable providers to show your Content), and worldwide (because KOLDCAST TV is global in reach).
3. You represent and warrant that: (i) you own the Content posted by you on or through KOLDCAST TV or otherwise have the right to grant the license set forth in this section, and (ii) the posting of your Content on or through KOLDCAST TV does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights or any other rights of any person. You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owing any person by reason of any Content posted by you to or through KOLDCAST TV.
4. KOLDCAST TV contains Content of KOLDCAST TV ("KOLDCAST TV Content"). KOLDCAST TV Content is protected by copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and other laws, and KOLDCAST TV owns and retains all rights in the KOLDCAST TV Content and KOLDCAST TV.
5. KOLDCAST TV contains Content of users and other KOLDCAST TV licensors. Except for Content posted by you, you may not copy, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, display, or sell any Content appearing on or through KOLDCAST TV, other than by use of the Embed Codes provided by KOLDCAST TV.
6. KOLDCAST TV may delete any Content that in the sole judgment of KOLDCAST TV violates this Agreement or which may be offensive, illegal or violate the rights, harm, or threaten the safety of any person. KOLDCAST TV assumes no responsibility for monitoring KOLDCAST TV for inappropriate Content or conduct. If at any time KOLDCAST TV chooses, in its sole discretion, to monitor KOLDCAST TV, KOLDCAST TV nonetheless assumes no responsibility for the Content, no obligation to modify or remove any inappropriate Content, and no responsibility for the conduct of the User submitting any such Content.
