The license you grant to HotFlick is non-exclusive (meaning you are free to license your Materials to anyone else in addition to HotFlick), fully-paid and royalty-free (meaning that HotFlick is not required to pay you for the use on the HotFlick Service of the Materials that you post), sublicensable (so that HotFlick is able to use its affiliates and subcontractors such as Internet content delivery networks to provide the HotFlick Service), and worldwide (because the Internet and the HotFlick Service are global in reach). You represent and warrant that: (i) you own the Materials posted by you on or through the HotFlick Service or otherwise have the right to grant the license set forth in this section, and (ii) the posting of your Materials on or through the HotFlick Service 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 Materials posted by you to or through the HotFlick Service.
