Ownership and Intellectual Property Policy:

  • Ownership of Work: The Creator on the platform agrees that upon successful completion and payment for their services, the ownership rights of the delivered work are transferred to the buyer (Business). This ensures that the buyer has full rights to use, modify, or distribute the work as specified in the terms agreed upon.

  • Creator Representations: Creators are responsible for ensuring that they have the necessary rights and permissions to offer and deliver their services. They should warrant that their work does not infringe upon any third-party intellectual property rights. This means that the content created must be original: (i.e: no pictures, videos, graphics, or anything relating to content that has been used without permission) Accounts that have violated these terms will be banned permanently.

  • Intellectual Property Protection: Zoshal respects intellectual property rights and encourages creators and buyers to do the same. If a buyer or creator suspects that their intellectual property rights have been violated by either party, they can file a complaint and will investigate the matter, and take appropriate action.

  • Dispute Resolution: In case of any disputes regarding ownership or intellectual property, we (Zoshal) may provide a dispute resolution process to help mediate between the buyer and the creator. This can involve reviewing evidence, seeking clarifications, and reaching a fair resolution.

  • User Content Ownership: As a user-generated content marketplace, we respect the ownership rights of our users. When users contribute content to the platform, they retain ownership of their original creations, subject to the following provisions.

  • License to Use: By submitting content to the marketplace, users grant us a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license to host, display, distribute, and modify their content solely for the purpose of operating and promoting the marketplace. This license allows us to showcase user content to potential buyers and facilitate transactions.

  • Intellectual Property Protection: We take intellectual property rights seriously and expect our users to do the same. Users must ensure that the content they contribute does not infringe upon the rights of third parties. If we receive a valid claim of copyright infringement or other intellectual property violation, we may take appropriate action, including removing the infringing content and, if necessary, terminating the user's account.

  • User Responsibility: Users are solely responsible for the content they upload to the marketplace. By contributing content, users warrant that they have the necessary rights, permissions, and licenses to share and monetize their work. Users shall indemnify and hold us harmless from any claims arising out of their content, including copyright disputes or unauthorized use of intellectual property.

  • Dispute Resolution: In the event of a dispute concerning ownership or intellectual property rights, we encourage users to first try to resolve the issue amicably. We may provide a dispute resolution process to assist users in reaching a satisfactory resolution. If the dispute remains unresolved, users may seek legal remedies in accordance with applicable laws and jurisdiction.

  • Reporting Intellectual Property Infringement: If a user believes their intellectual property rights have been infringed upon by another user's content, they can submit a detailed infringement notice to our designated agent. We will promptly investigate the complaint and take appropriate action, which may include removing the infringing content and notifying the parties involved.

DMCA Compliance: The website complies with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and promptly responds to valid copyright infringement notices. If a buyer believes their copyrighted work has been infringed, they can submit a DMCA takedown request, and the website will take appropriate action.

We understand that creators may be inspired by other creators. Whist we encourage this, we advise against blatantly stealing dialogue or themes word for word and like for like. Use your creativity, get inspired, and let your own personality do the talking.
