All details and other restrictions of the prize(s) not specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Each prize winner shall be solely responsible for all federal, state, local and/or provincial taxes, and the reporting consequences thereof, and for any other fees or costs associated with the applicable prize. If required by law, Sponsor reserves the right to withhold and remit to the appropriate taxing authorities the amount of any tax or taxes due. With respect to non—cash prizes, it may be legally necessary under the United States Internal Revenue Code (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) for the prize winner to pay the amount of any tax before receiving the prize. Each potential winner (including Winning Directors) (or, if the potential winner is a minor, their parent or legal guardian) may be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, a "Definitive Agreement" (as defined below) and where imposing such condition is legal, a Publicity Release (collectively, the "Prize Claim Documents"). Each potential winner may be required to execute a definitive agreement (the "Definitive Agreement") with Sponsor setting forth the terms and conditions of the potential winner's specific duties in connection with the Film, Wildcard Submission, Winning Screenplay and/or Grand Prize. In the event of a conflict between the terms and conditions of the Definitive Agreement and the terms and conditions hereunder, the terms and conditions of the Definitive Agreement shall govern and control. Sponsor reserves the right to conduct background checks on the potential winner prior to granting any award. Sponsor also reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to disqualify any individual who has been charged with or convicted of a felony or misdemeanor, is delinquent on child support, spousal support, tax payments or any other government ordered payment, has or is suspected of failing to comply with any provision of these Official Rules, including, but not limited to, having made any false statements in connection with his/her participation in the Competition. Should it be determined that a potential winner has made a false statement in any document required by Sponsor, Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify the potential winner and select an alternate winner. If a potential winner (or a minor potential winner's parent or legal guardian) fails or refuses to sign and return all the Prize Claim Documents within ten (10) days after being notified that he or she has been selected as the potential winner (or a shorter time if required by exigencies), the potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. Each prize winner's travel companion must sign an Affidavit of Eligibility and a Liability Release prior to any travel documents being released.

    Sponsor makes no warranties, and hereby disclaims any and all warranties, express or implied, concerning any prize furnished in connection with the Competition. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, SUCH PRIZES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND SPONSOR HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL SUCH WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND/OR NON—INFRINGEMENT.

  13. THE WRITERS GUILD AND DIRECTORS GUILD: If a Screenplay writer is a member of the Writer's Guild of America (the "WGA"), the Screenplay will be deemed to have been written for an "Experimental New Media Production" as defined in the Sideletter on Literary Material Written For Programs Made for New Media (the "WGA New Media Sideletter") to the WGA Basic Agreement (the "WGA Agreement"), the Screenplay Proposal Prize shall constitute the entrant's full initial compensation pursuant to the WGA New Media Sideletter and all other re-use, residual, or other fees shall be deemed waived. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a Screenplay writer is a member of the WGA and is a professional writer within the meaning of the WGA Agreement such that the Screenplay does not qualify as an Experimental New Media Production, any additional compensation payable to the Screenplay writer pursuant to the WGA Agreement shall be paid at the scale or minimum rate permitted, the Winning Screenplay Prize (if awarded to such professional writer) will be applied against such minimum payment, and to the extent the Winning Screenplay Prize exceeds the applicable minimums, such excess, to the fullest extent not prohibited by the WGA Agreement, may be credited against any additional payment required by the WGA Agreement and may be deemed payment for any additional services or rights obtainable by such payment under the WGA Agreement. If a Screenplay writer becomes entitled to any separated rights under the provisions of any collective bargaining agreement, then Sponsor's rights in and to the Screenplay shall be limited only to the minimum extent required by the applicable collective bargaining agreement, and notwithstanding such limitation, Sponsor's rights shall be deemed to include the following: (i) if Article 16A of the WGA Agreement is applicable, then Sponsor's rights shall include all rights not required by Article 16A to be exclusively licensed back to entrant; or (ii) if Article 16B of the WGA Agreement is applicable, then Sponsor's rights shall include theatrical, publication, and merchandising rights, and upon Sponsor's exercise of each of said rights, Sponsor shall pay entrant the applicable minimum compensation set forth in the WGA Agreement for each right so exercised.

    If a Winning Director or Wildcard Submission entrant is a member of the Director's Guild of America (the "DGA") and elects to produce her Film or Wildcard Submission pursuant to the jurisdiction of the DGA, the applicable Winning Director or Wildcard Submission entrant shall produce her Film or Wildcard Submission as an "Experimental New Media Production" as defined in Sideletter No. 35 (the "DGA New Media Sideletter") to the DGA Basic Agreement (the "DGA Agreement"), and the amounts payable to the Winning Director out of the Approved Budget and the Wildcard Prize awarded to the Wildcard Submission entrant shall constitute the entrant's full initial compensation pursuant to the DGA New Media Sideletter and all other re—use, residual, or other fees shall be deemed waived. If and to the extent the Film or the Wildcard Submission does not qualify as an Experimental New Media Production, any additional compensation payable to the Winning Director or Wildcard Submission entrant pursuant to the DGA Agreement shall be paid at the scale or minimum rate permitted, the Wildcard Prize, Grand Prize or Runner Up Prize (if awarded to such Winning Director or Wildcard Submission entrant) will be applied against such minimum payment, and to the extent that any prize money awarded hereunder exceeds applicable DGA Agreement minimums, then such excess, to the fullest extent not prohibited by the DGA Agreement, may be credited against any additional payment required by the DGA Agreement and may be deemed payment for any additional services or rights obtainable by such payment under the DGA Agreement.

    If and to the extent an entrant is a member of the Writer's Guild of Canada or the Directors Guild of Canada, the same process contemplated above for the American writers and directors guilds will apply to the extend the applicable collective bargaining agreements include provisions that are comparable or analogous to the provisions in the WGA Agreement and the DGA Agreement, and without in any way limiting the generality of the foregoing, the amounts awarded hereunder shall constitute a full buyout of rights to the extent not prohibited, and all re—use, residual and other fees that can be waived are hereby waived, all re—use, residual and other fees that cannot be waived will be paid at the minimum scale amounts, and any and all overscale amounts awarded in the Competition shall be credited against and applied to future payments to the extent not prohibited.

  14. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES/INDEMNIFICATION: Each person who enters this Competition (and any minor entrant's parent or legal guardian) represents and warrants as follows: (i) except as set forth herein, the Submission is the entrant's own, previously unpublished, and previously unproduced work; (ii) the Submission does not contain any computer virus (as applicable), is otherwise uncorrupted, is wholly original with entrant except to the extent it is based on or otherwise derivative of Selected Characters and/or the Official Guide, and as of the date of submission, is not the subject of any actual or threatened litigation or claim; (iii) the Submission does not and will not violate or infringe upon the intellectual property rights or other rights of any third party; (iv) the Submission does not and will not violate any applicable laws, and is not and will not be defamatory or libelous; and (v) the use of the Submission as set forth herein will not give rise to any claims for any payment whatsoever, including, but not limited to, claims for royalties, re—use fees or residuals except to the minimum extent required under the WGA Agreement or DGA Agreement. In addition, each Winning Director and/or Wildcard Submission entrant (and any minor Winning Director or minor Wildcard Submission entrant's parent or legal guardian) represents and warrants that the Film or Wildcard Submission will not be produced pursuant to any union or collective bargaining agreement other than and except for the DGA Agreement if the Winning Director or Wildcard Submission entrant is a member of the DGA or its Canadian counterpart and elects to produce her Film or Wildcard Submission pursuant to the jurisdiction of the DGA or its Canadian counterpart, in which case the Winning Director or Wildcard Submission entrant shall be responsible for complying with all the applicable requirements of the DGA Agreement or its Canadian counterpart. Each entrant (and any minor entrant's parent or legal guardian) hereby agrees to indemnify and hold the Promotion Entities harmless from and against any and all third party claims, actions or proceedings of any kind and from any and all damages, liabilities, costs and expenses relating to or arising out of any breach or alleged breach of any of the warranties, representations, covenants, obligations or agreements of entrant hereunder.

  15. GRANT OF RIGHTS:

    For good and valuable consideration, the receipt and legal sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, each person who makes a Submission to the Competition (and any minor entrant's parent or legal guardian) hereby irrevocably grants, transfers, sells, assigns and conveys to Sponsor, its successors and assigns, all present and future right, title and interest of every kind and nature whatsoever, including, without limitation, all copyrights, and all rights incidental, subsidiary, ancillary or allied thereto (including, without limitation, all derivative rights) in and to the Submission for exploitation throughout the universe, in perpetuity, by means of any and all media and devices whether now known or hereafter devised. Sponsor shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to edit, composite, morph, scan, duplicate, or alter the Submission for any purpose which Sponsor deems necessary or desirable, and each entrant irrevocably waives any and all so—called moral rights they may have therein. Each entrant hereby acknowledges that such entrant does not reserve any rights in or to the Submission.

    Sponsor may elect to exploit a Wildcard Submission that has not been selected as a Wildcard Winner. Notwithstanding the full grant of rights set forth above, if Sponsor elects to exploit any such Wildcard Submission outside the context of the Competition at any time, Sponsor will pay the entrant who submitted the Wildcard Submission a flat fee in the amount of five thousand dollars ($5,000).

    Sponsor shall have the right to freely assign its rights hereunder, in whole or in part, to any person or entity. Sponsor shall retain the rights granted in each Submission even if the Submission is disqualified or fails to meet the Submission Requirements or even it if it determined that the entrant who made the Submission is ineligible to enter the Competition or win a prize. Each entrant expressly acknowledges that many parties will contribute to the Films and/or Wildcard Submissions. Accordingly, if under any applicable law the above assignment by entrant of the rights granted herein is not effective, then entrant agrees to exercise such rights in a manner that recognizes the contribution of and will not have a material adverse effect upon such other parties. By entering the Competition, each entrant acknowledges and agrees that: (a) Sponsor is granting entrants a limited, non—exclusive license to use the Selected Characters and material from the Official Guide solely in connection with, and solely as a part of, the Competition, (b) entrants shall have no right, title or interest in the Selected Characters and/or the Official Guide, and (c) any use of the Selected Characters and/or the Official Guide other than as permitted by these Official Rules may infringe upon Sponsor's intellectual property rights. With respect to the use of the Selected Characters and/or the Official Guide, the results and proceeds of each entrant's modification activities and other interaction with the Selected Characters and/or the Official Guide shall be a "work made for hire" for Sponsor, and Sponsor will be considered the author and sole and exclusive owner of such activities and all intellectual property rights therein. If and to the extent that such results and proceeds do not, in whole or in part, qualify as "works made for hire", each entrant (and any minor entrants parent or legal guardian), automatically upon submission of his or her entry materials (including, without limitation, the Submission), hereby irrevocably grants, transfers, sells and assigns to Sponsor all right, title and interest in and to the Submission, including the right to use and otherwise exploit all entry materials submitted as part of the Competition, and all images, text and content depicted therein, in whole or in part, in any manner or medium now or hereafter known or devised, throughout the universe and in any and all languages in perpetuity. The rights granted in these Official Rules may be freely assigned and licensed by Sponsor in whole or in part to any other person or entity.

  16. PUBLICITY RELEASE: By participating in the Competition, in addition to any other grants which may be granted in any other agreement entered into between Sponsor and any entrant in and/or winner of the Competition, each entrant (and any minor entrants parent or legal guardian) irrevocably grants the Promotion Entities and their respective successors, assigns and licensees, the right to use such entrant's name, photograph, likeness, statements, biographical information, and any other personal characteristics, in any and all media in connection with the Competition, the Film, the Wildcard Submission and the advertising and promotion thereof and each entrant and/or prize winner hereby release the Promotion Entities from any liability with respect thereto.

  17. GENERAL LIABILITY RELEASE/FORCE MAJEURE: Entrants (and any minor entrants parent or legal guardian) agree that the Promotion Entities (A) shall not be responsible or liable for, and are hereby released from, any and all costs, injuries, losses or damages of any kind, including, without limitation, death and bodily injury, due in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, to participation in the Competition or any Competition—related activity, or from entrants' acceptance, receipt, possession and/or use or misuse of any prize, and (B) have not made any warranty, representation or guarantee express or implied, in fact or in law, with respect to any prize, including, without limitation, to such prize's quality or fitness for a particular purpose. Sponsor assumes no responsibility for any damage to an entrant's, or any other person's, computer system which is occasioned by accessing the Website or otherwise participating in the Competition, or for any computer system, phone line, hardware, software or program malfunctions, or other errors, failures, delayed computer transmissions or network connections that are human or technical in nature. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Sponsor is not responsible for incomplete, illegible, misdirected, misprinted, late, lost, damaged, stolen, or postage—due prize notifications; or for lost, interrupted, inaccessible or unavailable networks, servers, satellites, Internet service providers, websites, or other connections; or for miscommunications, failed, jumbled, scrambled, delayed, or misdirected computer, telephone or cable transmissions; or for any technical malfunctions, failures, difficulties or other errors of any kind or nature; or for the incorrect or inaccurate capture of information, or the failure to capture any information. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual who is found to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Competition or the Website, to be acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with the intent to disrupt or undermine the legitimate operation of the Competition, or to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, and Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. No mechanically reproduced, illegible, incomplete, forged, software—generated or other automated multiple entries will be accepted. Sponsor reserves the right to modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the Competition if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Competition is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures or malfunctions or other causes beyond Sponsor's control have destroyed or severely undermined or to any degree impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play and/or feasibility of the Competition as contemplated herein. In the event an insufficient number of eligible entries are received and/or Sponsor is prevented from awarding prizes or continuing with the Competition as contemplated herein by any event beyond its control, including but not limited to fire, flood, natural or man—made epidemic of health of other means, earthquake, explosion, labor dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, satellite or equipment failure, riot or civil disturbance, terrorist threat or activity, war (declared or undeclared) or any federal state or local government law, order, or regulation, public health crisis, order of any court or jurisdiction, or other cause not reasonably within Sponsor's control (each a "Force Majeure" event or occurrence), then subject to any governmental approval which may be required, Sponsor shall have the right to modify, suspend, extend or terminate the Competition. If the Competition is terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select the winner in a random drawing from all eligible, non—suspect entries received as of the date of the event giving rise to the termination. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant's sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. Only the type and quantity of prizes described in these Official Rules will be awarded. These Official Rules cannot be modified or amended in any way except in a written document issued in accordance with law by a duly authorized representative of Sponsor. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision in these Official Rules is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.

  18. NATURE OF RELATIONSHIP/WAIVER OF EQUITABLE RELIEF: Each entrant (and any minor entrants parent or legal guardian) hereby acknowledges and agrees that the relationship between the entrant and the Promotion Entities is not a confidential, fiduciary, or other special relationship, and that the entrant's decision to provide the entrant's Submission to Sponsor for purposes of the Competition does not place the Promotion Entities in a position that is any different from the position held by members of the general public with regard to elements of the entrant's Submission. Each entrant understands and acknowledges that the Promotion Entities have wide access to ideas, stories, designs, and other literary materials, and that new ideas are constantly being submitted to it or being developed by their own employees. Each entrant also acknowledges that many ideas or stories may be competitive with, similar or identical to the Submission and/or each other in theme, idea, plot, format or other respects. Each entrant acknowledges and agrees that such entrant will not be entitled to any compensation as a result of any Promotion Entity's use of any such similar or identical material. Each entrant acknowledges and agrees that the Promotion Entities do not now and shall not have in the future any duty or liability, direct or indirect, vicarious, contributory, or otherwise, with respect to the infringement or protection of the copyright in and to the Submission. Finally, each entrant acknowledges that, with respect to any claim by entrant relating to or arising out of a Promotion Entity's actual or alleged exploitation or use of any Submission or other material submitted in connection with the Competition, the damage, if any, thereby caused to the applicable entrant will not be irreparable or otherwise sufficient to entitle such entrant to seek injunctive or other equitable relief or in any way enjoin the production, distribution, exhibition or other exploitation of any of the Films and/or Wildcard Submissions, any part of the Franchise or any other production based on or allegedly based on the Submission, and entrant's rights and remedies in any such event shall be strictly limited to the right to recover damages, if any, in an action at law.

  19. NO OBLIGATION TO USE: Sponsor shall have no obligation (express or implied) to use any Submission or Materials, or to otherwise exploit any Submission, Materials or Wildcard Materials or, if commenced, to continue the distribution or exploitation thereof, and Sponsor may at any time abandon the use of the Submission, Materials or Wildcard Materials for any reason, with or without legal justification or excuse, and contestants shall not be entitled to any damages or other relief by reason thereof.

  20. DATES & DEADLINES/ANTICIPATED NUMBER OF CONTESTANTS: Because of the unique nature and scope of the Competition, Sponsor reserves the right, in addition to those other rights reserved herein, to modify any date(s) or deadline(s) set forth in these Official Rules or otherwise governing the Competition. Sponsor cannot accurately predict the number of entrants who will participate in the Competition.

  21. FURTHER DOCUMENTATION: If Sponsor shall desire to secure additional assignments, certificates of engagement for the Submission, the Materials, the Wildcard Materials or other documents as Sponsor may reasonably require in order to evidence or effectuate the rights granted in these Official Rules, then each entrant agrees to sign, authenticate and deliver the same upon Sponsor's request therefor.

  22. GOVERNING LAW/JURISDICTION: ALL ISSUES AND QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE CONSTRUCTION, VALIDITY, INTERPRETATION AND ENFORCEABILITY OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES OR THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF ENTRANTS OR SPONSOR IN CONNECTION WITH THE COMPETITION SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ANY CHOICE OF LAW OF CONFLICT OF LAW RULES OR PROVISIONS THAT WOULD CAUSE THE APPLICATION OF ANY OTHER STATE'S LAWS.

  23. ARBITRATION PROVISION: By participating in this Competition, each entrant (and any minor entrant's parent or legal guardian) agrees: (i) that any and all disputes the entrant may have with, or claims entrant may have against, the Promotion Entities relating to, arising out of or connected in any way with (a) the Competition, (b) the awarding or redemption of any prize, and/or (c) the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by JAMS and conducted before a sole arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS; (ii) this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1—16; (iii) the arbitration shall be held in Los Angeles, California; (iv) the arbitrator's decision shall be controlled by the terms and conditions of these Official Rules and any of the other agreements referenced herein that the applicable entrant may have entered into in connection with the Competition; (v) the arbitrator shall apply California law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (vi) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, arbitration can decide only entrant's and/or Sponsor's individual claims; the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (vii) the arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against the entrant or Sponsor; (viii) in the event that the administrative fees and deposits that must be paid to initiate arbitration against Sponsor exceed $125 USD, and entrant is unable (or not required under the rules of JAMS) to pay any fees and deposits that exceed this amount, Sponsor agrees to pay them and/or forward them on entrant's behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator; (ix) if the entrant is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Sponsor will pay as much of entrant's filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost—prohibitive; and (x) with the exception of subpart (vi) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules of JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (vi) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither entrant nor Sponsor shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute.
