§ 4 Copyright

The copyright for the work produced by the participant (in particular video and audio submissions) is retained by the participant. The participant hereby grants to Messe Düsseldorf GmbH for its business purposes and for the purposes and aims described in these Terms and Conditions an exclusive right, unrestricted in terms of region, time-period or content, to use in its tangible form or otherwise publish in an intangible form those works which were produced by him in the context of this contract and for which he holds the copyright (usage rights). Messe Düsseldorf GmbH is entitled to grant these usage rights to third parties (i.e. its cooperation partners) and to edit, supplement or otherwise amend the works.

Insofar as the participant makes use of works by third parties which are protected by copyright, he shall acquire the rights listed above, which shall, likewise, be granted to Messe Düsseldorf, or he shall register the use of such works with the relevant body for licensing (e.g. GEMA (Gesellschaft für musikalische Aufführungs- und mechanische Vervielfältigungsrechte) for musical performances within Germany). In the event that the use of these works by Messe Düsseldorf gives rise to claims by third parties - in particular through an infringement of copyright or the general personal rights of a third party - the participant shall indemnify Messe Düsseldorf against all liability. In the event that Messe Düsseldorf is notified that a third party's rights are being infringed by a video which has been uploaded, the video uploaded by the participant may be deleted.

§ 5 Premature termination of the video competition

Messe Düsseldorf GmbH reserves the right to suspend or terminate the video competition at any time without prior notice and without stating its reasons. Messe Düsseldorf GmbH shall apply this right in particular if the proper execution of the competition cannot be guaranteed for legal or technical reasons (e.g. viruses in the computer system, manipulation or hard and/or software faults). Insofar as such a termination is caused by the behaviour of a participant, Messe Düsseldorf GmbH shall be entitled to demand compensation for any damages incurred from that person.
