Prior to post­ing Con­tent to this web­site, the Con­tent provider agrees as follows:

1.  License Grants:  When I post my own copy­rightable Con­tent on or through this web­site, I retain own­er­ship of any copy­right I claim to my sub­mit­ted Con­tent. How­ever, by post­ing my Con­tent through the web­site I grant the Ari­zona Board of Regents on behalf of Ari­zona State Uni­ver­sity (“ASU”) a royalty-free, per­pet­ual, irrev­o­ca­ble, non-exclusive, world­wide license to (i) use, not use, cease using, repro­duce, pub­lish, edit, trans­late, mod­ify, excerpt, adapt, dis­trib­ute, pre­pare deriv­a­tive works of, pub­licly per­form, and pub­licly dis­play the Con­tent alone or as part of other works in any form, media, or tech­nol­ogy whether now known or later devel­oped, and to (ii) freely and fully sub­li­cense such rights through sin­gle or mul­ti­ple tiers of sub­li­censes and sub­li­censees. I under­stand that any sub­li­censes granted will be con­sis­tent with the Cre­ative Com­mons license poli­cies, which can be found at

4.  Orig­i­nal Work.  All Con­tent will be com­prised of only orig­i­nal works cre­ated entirely by me and will not con­tain any mate­r­ial that was cre­ated by any­one other than me.
