For the purposes of this Agreement, “Intellectual Property Rights” means all patent rights, copyright rights, mask work rights, moral rights, rights of publicity, trademark, trade dress and service mark rights, goodwill, trade secret rights and other intellectual property rights as may now exist or hereafter come into existence, and all applications therefore and registrations, renewals and extensions thereof, under the laws of any state, country, territory or other jurisdiction.

By publishing any designs containing User Content on the Service, you expressly grant, and you represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to grant to PatternJam a royalty-free, sub-licensable, transferable, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, list information regarding, edit, translate, distribute, syndicate, publicly perform, publicly display, and make derivative works of all such User Content and your name, voice, and/or likeness as contained in your User Content, in whole or in part, and in any form, media or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, for use in connection with the Service and PatternJam’s (and its successors’ and affiliates’) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Service (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels.
  4. Some of the PatternJam Services are supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions, and you hereby agree that PatternJam may place such advertising and promotions on the PatternJam Services or on, about, or in conjunction with your Content. The manner, mode and extent of such advertising and promotions are subject to change without specific notice to you.
  5. You represent and warrant that: (i) you own the Content uploaded by you on or through the PatternJam Services, (ii) the uploading and use of your Content on or through the PatternJam Services does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights, intellectual property rights or any other rights of any person, and (iii) the uploading of your Content on the Site does not result in a breach of contract between you and a third party. You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owing any person by reason of Content you upload on or through the PatternJam Services.
  6. Limited License. PatternJam grants you a non-exclusive license to use PatternJam. These Terms of Service will also govern any upgrades that replace and/or supplement PatternJam, unless such upgrades are accompanied by a separate license, in which case the terms of that license will govern. PatternJam may be used to reproduce materials so long as such use is limited to reproduction of non-copyrighted materials, materials in which you own the copyright, or materials you are authorized or legally permitted to reproduce. Except as and only to the extent expressly permitted in these Terms of Service or by applicable law, you may not copy, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, modify, or create derivative works of PatternJam or any part thereof.
  7. The PatternJam Services contain Content of PatternJam ("PatternJam Content"). PatternJam Content is protected by copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and other laws, and PatternJam owns and retains all rights in the PatternJam Content and the PatternJam Services. PatternJam hereby grants you a limited, revocable, nonsublicensable license to reproduce and display the PatternJam Content (excluding any software code) solely for your personal use in connection with viewing the Site and using the PatternJam Services.
  8. The PatternJam Services contain Content of Users and other PatternJam licensors. Except as provided within this Agreement, you may not copy, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, display, or sell any Content of Users or other PatternJam licensors appearing on or through the PatternJam Services.
  9. PatternJam performs technical functions necessary to offer the PatternJam Services, including but not limited to transcoding and/or reformatting Content to allow its use throughout the PatternJam Services.
  10. Although the Site and other PatternJam Services are normally available, there will be occasions when the Site or other PatternJam Services will be interrupted for scheduled maintenance or upgrades, for emergency repairs, or due to failure of telecommunications links and equipment that are beyond the control of PatternJam (i.e. warps in the space time continuum). Also, although PatternJam will normally only delete Content that violates this Agreement, PatternJam reserves the right to delete any Content for any reason, without prior notice. Deleted content may be stored by PatternJam in order to comply with certain legal obligations and is not retrievable without a valid court order. Consequently, PatternJam encourages you to maintain your own backup of your Content. In other words, PatternJam is not a backup service. PatternJam will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the PatternJam Services, or the loss of any Content.
