Proprietary Rights in Content on the Website or Related Service
The Website may contain message boards, chat rooms, personal web pages or profiles, forums, bulletin boards, and other interactive features (collectively, “Interactive Services”) that allow users to post, submit, publish, display or transmit to other users or other persons (hereinafter, “post”) content or materials (collectively, “User Contributions”) on or through the Service.
- As a TheCGBros account holder, you may post User Contributions. You understand that whether your User Contributions are published, TheCGBros does not guarantee any confidentiality regarding your User Contributions.
- You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for your own User Contributions and the consequences of posting it on or through the Service.
- TheCGBros does not endorse any User Contributions or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed.
- TheCGBros expressly disclaims any liability with User Contributions.
- TheCGBros claims no ownership rights in the text, files, images, photos, video, sounds, musical works, works of authorship, applications, or any other User Contributions you post on or through the Service.
- By submitting, displaying, and/or publishing (“posting”) any User Contributions on or through the Service, you hereby grant to TheCGBros an non-exclusive, fully paid, and royalty-free, worldwide, sub-licensable and transferable license to use, modify, prepare derivative works of, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce, and distribute such User Contributions, including, without limitation, distributing part or all of the User Contributions in any media formats through any media channels now known or hereafter invented.
- You affirm that you, or your organization (i.e. the copyright holders) do not have any exclusive agreements with other third parties to monetize this Content.
- The license term begins on the date TheCGBros receives a completed Content Submission Agreement and lasts until the date that is 5 years from that date. This is called the “Initial Distribution Period.” At the end of the Initial Distribution Period, the TheCGBros may, but are obligated to, renew at their sole option, for an additional 3-year term called “Renewal Distribution Period.” The Initial Distribution Period and each Renewal Distribution Period (if any), in either of the above cases, is the “Distribution Period.
- The license you grant is non-revocable during the Distribution Period except for the 30-day period preceding the end of the Initial Distribution Period or the then-current Renewal Distribution Period. During this 30-day period either you or TheCGBros may provide notice of intent not to renew the license to the other party. The procedure for declaring the intent not to renew the license is described in the FAQ at TheCGBros.com.
- If you would like to cancel the license earlier than the agreed-upon termination date in the preceding paragraph, TheCGBros are under no obligation to do so but may offer you the option to buy out the remaining term of the license upon payment of an early cancellation fee. As a practical matter, please know not all obligations can be terminated, including those contained in the Content Submission Agreement.
- During the Distribution Period, TheCGBros may permit the license to be suspended temporarily for good cause, such as for entering the video into a film festival or equivalent, where there is a requirement that the video not be shown elsewhere than the festival or other venue during the event. In this case, the license will be suspended for a number of consecutive thirty-day periods designated by you, not to exceed three in any Distribution Period. The suspension will be lifted automatically at the end of the designated suspension period. When the suspension is lifted, the license term clock will be reset to zero and a new Initial Distribution Period will begin. The procedure for obtaining a suspension is described in the FAQ at TheCGBros.com.
- By posting any Content on or through the Service, you hereby grant to each User of the Service, a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to access your Content through the Service. You agree that any Content which either you or we upload or post on your behalf does not contain material unlawful for you to possess in the country in which you are resident, or which would be unlawful for TheCGBros to use or possess in connection with the provision of the Service.
- Except as provided within the Terms, you may not download, copy, modify, reproduce, create derivative works, publicly display, publicly perform, digitally transmit, distribute, broadcast, sell, license, or otherwise use any Content appearing on or through the Service.
- Some of the Service is supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions. You agree that TheCGBros or others may place such advertising and promotions on the Service or on, about, or with your Content. The manner, mode, and extent of such advertising and promotions are subject to change without specific notice to you.
- I understand and agree that TheCGBros will attempt to monetize my Content. I further understand and agree that I shall receive no monetary compensation from TheCGBros in the event that the attempt is successful.
Monitoring and Enforcement
We have the right to:
- Remove or refuse to post any User Contributions for any or no reason in our sole discretion.
- Take any action regarding any User Contribution we deem necessary or appropriate in our sole discretion, including if we believe that such User Contribution violates the Terms, infringes any intellectual property right or other right of any person or entity, threatens the personal safety of users of the Website or the public or could create liability for us.
- Disclose your identity or other information about you to any third party who claims that material posted by you violates their rights, including their intellectual property rights or their right to privacy.
- Take appropriate legal action, including without limitation, referral to law enforcement, for any illegal or unauthorized use of the Website.
Without limiting the foregoing, we have the right to cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Website. YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS THECGBROS AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSEES, AND SERVICE PROVIDERS FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY ANY OF THE FOREGOING PARTIES DURING OR AS A RESULT OF ITS INVESTIGATIONS AND FROM ANY ACTIONS TAKEN AS A CONSEQUENCE OF INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER SUCH PARTIES OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.
However, we cannot review all material before it is posted on the Website and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted. We assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications, or content provided by any user or third party. We have no responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this section.
Notice and Takedown Procedure for Copyright Complaints
We take claims of copyright infringement seriously. It is our policy to expeditiously respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). This section describes the information that should be present in these notices. It makes submitting notices of alleged infringement to TheCGBros straightforward while reducing the number of notices we receive that are fraudulent or difficult to understand or verify. The form of notice specified below follows the form suggested by the DMCA (the text of which can be found at the U.S. Copyright Office Web Site (http://www.copyright.gov) but we will respond to notices of this form from other jurisdictions.
It is expected that all Users of any part of the Service will comply with copyright laws. However, if TheCGBros receives proper notification of claimed copyright infringement, our response to these notices will include removing or disabling access to material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity and/or terminating subscribers, whether we may be liable for such infringement under United States law or the laws of another jurisdiction.
If we remove or disable access in response to such a notice, we will make a good faith attempt to contact the owner or administrator of the affected site or Content so they may make a counter-notification under 17 USC Sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the DMCA. We may also document notices of alleged infringement on which we act.
TheCGBros’ Designated Agent to receive notification of alleged infringement under the DMCA is:
Johnston Media Group, Inc.
2127 Olympic Parkway, Suite 1006
Chula Vista, CA 91915
Upon receipt of proper notification of claimed infringement, TheCGBros will follow the procedures outlined and in the DMCA.
If you believe that your work has been copied so it constitutes copyright infringement, or your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please provide TheCGBros’ Designated Agent (listed above) the following information in written communication (preferably via email):
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site.
- Identification of the material claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit TheCGBros to locate the material.
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit TheCGBros to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an email address at which the complaining party may be contacted.
- The following statement: “I have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law”.
- The following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate, and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed”; and
- A physical or electronic signature of the owner or a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
You may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) under Section 512(f) of the DMCA if you materially misrepresent that material is infringing your copyrights. If you are not sure whether material available online infringes your copyright, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.
If you believe that material you posted on the Website was removed or access to it was disabled by mistake or misidentification, you may file a counter-notification under sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the DMCA. To file a counter-notification with us, please provide TheCGBros’ Designated Agent (listed above) the following information in written communication (preferably via email):
- Identification of the material removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled.
- Your name, address, and telephone number.
- The following statement: “I consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for Southern California.”.
- The following statement: “I will accept service of process from [insert the name of the person who submitted the infringement notification] or his/her agent”.
- The following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the affected material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled”; and
- Your signature, in physical or electronic form.
Upon receipt of such counter notification, TheCGBros will promptly provide the person who provided the original infringement notification with a copy of the counter notification and inform that person that TheCGBros will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 10 business days. TheCGBros will replace the removed material and cease disabling access to it in not less than 10, nor over 14, business days following receipt of the counter-notice, unless our Designated Agent first receives notice from the person who submitted the original infringement notification that such person has sought a court order to restrain the subscriber from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on our system or network.
You may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) under Section 512(f) of the DMCA if you materially misrepresent that material or activity on the Website was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification. If you are not sure whether material available online infringes your copyright, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.
Under Section 512(i)(1)(a) of the DMCA, TheCGBros will, in appropriate circumstances, disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who are repeat infringers. A repeat infringer is a User notified of infringing activity more than twice.
Accommodation of Standard Technical Measures
It is TheCGBros’ policy to accommodate and not interfere with standard technical measures used by copyright owners to identify or protect copyrighted works that TheCGBros determines are reasonable under the circumstances.
You agree to indemnify and hold TheCGBros harmless from and against any costs, damages, liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) it incurs in relation to, arising from, or to avoid, any claim or demand from a third party relating to (i) your use or misuse of, or access to, the Service; (ii) a violation of these Terms, any law or regulation, or the rights of any third party, by any person using your account; (iii) your Content; or (iv) your interaction with any Users.
TheCGBros retains the right to employ TheCGBros’ own counsel. You remain solely responsible for TheCGBros’ defense and must obtain our written consent to a settlement. You agree to notify TheCGBros of a pending suit claiming you have violated a third party’s intellectual property or other rights. TheCGBros requires that you confirm your indemnification if a lawsuit occurs; failure to do so may be considered a breach of these Terms.
Integration with Third-Party Services
If you are using the Service combined, integrated, or used with Third-party products, software applications, or websites (“Third Party Service[s]”), you agree that: (i) you may have to enter into a separate license agreement with the third party owner or licensor for their Third Party Services; (ii) the functionality of the Service may be diminished when operating through a Third Party Service; and (iii) TheCGBros cannot guarantee that the Service shall always be available on or in connection with such Third-Party Services and endorses no advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such websites or resources.
You acknowledge and agree that TheCGBros is not liable for any loss or damage which may be incurred by you because of the availability of those external sites or resources, or because of any reliance placed by you on the completeness, accuracy, or existence of any advertising, products, or other materials on, or available from, such websites or resources.
TheCGBros and the Service are protected by international copyright, trademark, trade secret and other intellectual property or proprietary rights laws of the United States and foreign countries.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the limitations above may not apply to you. In these cases, TheCGBros’ liability will be limited to the fullest extent permitted by law.
The owner of the Website is based in the State of California in the United States. We make no claims that the Website or any of its content is accessible or appropriate outside of the United States. Access to the Website may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Website from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
Nothing in the Terms shall affect any statutory right that you are always entitled to as a consumer and that you cannot contractually agree to alter or waive.
For any dispute you have with TheCGBros, you agree to first contact us and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event we cannot resolve a dispute within 30 days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy relating to these Terms, or breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), exclusively through confidential arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures (“Commercial Rules”). The award rendered by the arbitrator will be final, non-reviewable, non-appealable, and binding on the parties and may be entered and enforced in any court having jurisdiction, and any court where a party or its assets is located. There will be one arbitrator agreed to by the parties within twenty (20) days of receipt by respondent of the request for arbitration or in default thereof appointed by the AAA under its Commercial Rules. The seat or place of arbitration will be San Diego, California. Each party will pay any filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees. Except as required by law, neither a party nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration without the prior written consent of both parties, unless to protect or pursue a legal right. The arbitrator will have no authority to award punitive damages, consequential damage, or liquidated damages. The parties also agree that the AAA Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection will apply to the proceedings. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND THECGBROS ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
All matters relating to the Website and these Terms, and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), are governed by the laws of the State of California in the United States, without regard to any conflict of laws, rules, or principles (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction).
Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights.
Limitation on Time to File Claims
ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE WEBSITE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES; OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
