Terms of service

The following Terms of Use (“TOU”) is a legal agreement between you and Moon Bear and Moon Bear LLC (“we,” “us” and “our”), and governs your use of the Content (as defined below) licensed by you and any customer support or services provided by us in connection with such Content. Your use of the Content is subject to these TOU and all applicable laws, rules and regulations. Please read these TOU carefully and contact us with any questions.

 

  1. Definitions.
  • “Content” means the particular media (e.g. image files, video files, audio files, templates, project files, data files, etc.) that you license through any Websites, along with any related materials, modifications and updates, if any, provided to you by us.

 

  • “End Product” means a work created by you into which the Content is to be incorporated pursuant to the license granted in these TOU.  Examples of End Products include websites, games, presentations, online videos, corporate videos, films, television shows and advertisements.

 

  • “License Fee” means the fee set forth on the order page.

 

  • “Use Case” means the class of use for which the Content is being licensed (i.e. Corporate, Commercial, or Personal), commensurate with the License Fee.  If no Use Case is specifically defined on the order page and/or a single License Fee option, then “Use Case” shall mean the “Personal” or the most narrow use of the Content that is otherwise consistent with these TOU.

 

  • “Website” means moonbearfilms.com or our other websites.

 

  1. License.
  • Subject to payment of the License Fee and your compliance with these TOU, we grant you a nonexclusive, perpetual, worldwide, non-transferable license to use, reproduce, modify (except as expressly prohibited herein), distribute and display the Content solely as incorporated into End Products, subject to the limitations set forth herein.  Subject to these TOU, including but not limited to the restrictions set forth in Sections 5 and 6 hereto, the license granted hereunder shall apply on an unlimited basis and shall convey the right to distribute, display or otherwise embody the Content in multiple End Products with no further payment to us, provided that all such use is consistent with the Use Case.
  1. Ownership. 
  • Content.  As between you and us, we retain all rights, title and interest in and to the Content and any derivatives or modifications thereof, in whole or in part.  You do not acquire any right, title or interest in any Content by virtue of the permitted uses allowed under these TOU, and you shall not claim ownership of the Content as incorporated in the End Product through content identification systems (e.g., through applying “ContentID” or similar systems to the Content). Any unauthorized reproduction or other use of the Content may infringe our or third parties’ copyrights, trademarks, privacy or other rights.
  • End Product. You retain all rights, title and interest in and to the End Product other than the Content incorporated therein.   
  1. Employer or Client Use.
  • You may purchase a license to the Content pursuant to these TOU on behalf of your employer or clients, provided that you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind your employer or clients to these TOU. With respect to a client, you must transfer your license to your client via an enforceable written agreement that includes terms no less restrictive than these TOU. You are solely responsible and liable for use of the Content by your employer or clients. These TOU grant you the right to use the same Content for the benefit of other clients in other End Products, subject to the restrictions set forth in Section 5.
  1. Restrictions.  You may not:
  • Use, transfer or otherwise distribute the Content in any way that allows a third party to use, download, extract or access the Content as a stand-alone file, either alone or bundled with other content, regardless of any modification you make to the Content (for example, you may not modify Content and distribute as part of a VJ loop pack, or stylize or recolor Content and present as your own product);
  • Take any action in connection with the Content that infringes the intellectual property or other rights of any person or entity;
  • Incorporate the Content into a trademark, logo or service mark or otherwise claim trademark or service mark rights in the Content, either alone or as incorporated in the End Product;
  • Use the Content in a pornographic, obscene, defamatory or unlawful manner;
  • Use the Content in an application allowing an end user to customize a digital or physical product to their specific needs, such as an “on demand,” “made to order” or “build it yourself” application (for example, online video or animation rendering services, slideshow apps and e-card generals) unless you purchase a separate license for each final product incorporating the Content that is created using the application;
  • Use the Content or any portion thereof for merchandising (for example, screensavers, t-shirts or calendars); or
  • Otherwise use or grant rights to the Content in a way that frustrates the intent hereof.
  1. Use Case. 
  • All rights herein granted are conditioned on your use consistent with the Use Case selected at the time of licensing the Content.  If at any point your Use Case changes or expands to include uses in a Use Case for which we charge a higher License Fee, you shall immediately pay to us the difference between the License Fee for the original Use Case and the License Fee for the expanded Use Case.  Your failure to pay the additional License Fee prior to using the Content beyond what is licensed in the original Use Case shall constitute a breach hereof, and all rights herein granted shall immediately terminate.

  • You warrant and represent that (a) you have the right and authority to enter into these TOU, either individually or on behalf of your employer or client, as applicable, and (b) neither the End Product nor your use of the Content shall violate any law or infringe upon any common law or statutory rights of any third-party, including without limitation contractual rights, copyrights, intellectual property rights and privacy rights.

  • The limitations and exclusions in this section apply to the maximum extent permitted by law.
  1. Reservation.
