Earthwizard, before you submit it, I need to tell you that you didn't fix the D'ni text correctly. You ended up writing [e][dh][e][r][th][s][o][g][ah][l]. It needs to be [e][d][e][r] [ts][o][g][ah][l].

To write this in the D'ni font, copy the following line directly into D'ni font:


eDer xogal


-------- thanks....

Hopefully my image skills are better than my D'ni language skills... got to get to that class the Linguistic Group is holding... :)

thanks, Gadren...

Well, I don't quite understand how it works, but there's obviously SOME provision that allows them to say the following (copied from the TOS):

Quote:
Creative Submissions/Communications. Licensors do not accept or
consider creative ideas, suggestions or materials other than
those Licensors have specifically requested via the Game or
otherwise. This is to avoid the possibility of future
misunderstandings when projects independently developed by
Licensors or their agents might seem to others to be similar to
their own creative ideas, suggestions or materials. If you do
send us or post any creative materials, suggestions, ideas,
notes, drawings, concepts, including, without limitation, ideas
or descriptions of how the Game, plot, or characters could be
enhanced or further developed, (collectively, the "Information"),
the Information shall be deemed, and shall remain the property of
Licensors
. None of the Information shall be subject to any
obligation on the part of Licensors and Licensors shall not be
liable for any use or disclosure of any Information. By sending
or posting Information, you hereby grant Licensors a perpetual,
irrevocable, nonexclusive right to use such Information in all
media now known or hereafter devised throughout the universe and
you agree that Licensors shall be entitled to unrestricted use of
the Information for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or
otherwise, without compensation to you or any other individuals
or entities involved with the creation of such Information.


Translation from Legalese: All property submitted at any time shall give Cyan Worlds, Inc, the right to use your material at any time without your consent or compensation, and you may not cancel the deal. However you may use the picture as you wish and grant the same rights to others as you see fit (as stated in "nonexclusive right")

This is so that people who submit ideas for storyline can not claim anything from Cyan Worlds, Inc, if their idea is used.

So it's only an eternal, un cancelable license, not an IP signing over.

So saying "the Information shall be the property of the Licensors" is just licensing it? That's not what it reads as... looks more to me like they're saying "it's ours, but you can use it too."

But it says you can grant rights, therefore it must remain in your possesion for that to be possible. You can't grant rights to something in someone else's possesion unless you're the government, or are a parent company or something.

You can license the right to sub-license. Can't you?

I know you could do it via proxy; have the person who wants to give the sub license ask the owner to give the person who's going to be the sub liscensee the sub license.

Translation from Legoese: I don't know.

yeah.. [spoiler=on topic ]Image[/spoiler]
Just take it to say that you can't try to get money off cyan for using your work, nor revoke their right to use it. you can, however, use it yourself, or give the right to use it to others.

Hmm... I like that a lot better. It's got that speckly texture to it without just looking dirty.

The license talk started because Eartwizard wrote personal initials on a Glass mosaic candidate. If somebody from the staff posted a clear statement that we may or may not write our initials or take ownership of our creations once sent to Cyan I think this sub debate could be closed. It is relevant for all who takes part in the mosaic project.
