Submission Policy & Agreement
Half Yard Productions, LLC (“Half Yard”) thanks you for your ideas, program formats, literary material and
other suggestions (collectively, “your material”). We would like you to take a moment to review our
submission policies. These policies are designed to help you understand your rights, and the rights and
obligations of Half Yard, to any materials submitted. Please be aware that Half Yard will only accept and
consider ideas and suggestions if their author is willing to agree to the policies outlined below.
Half Yard will only accept material submitted in written form. Your submission will only be considered at
your request and with your guarantee that, to the best of your knowledge, you are the sole originator of
your materials and you have the legal right to submit them to Half Yard for consideration.
You accept that Half Yard may discuss your material with employees and outside consultants, and
possibly others, to evaluate its usefulness to Half Yard. You understand that any consideration of your
written or verbal submission does not create a confidential relationship between you and Half Yard.
Half Yard may already be exploring programs and ideas generated by employees or others that resemble
your submission. In some cases, Half Yard may have considered your material in the past, or similar or
identical material may be generated independently. Therefore, you agree to renounce any claim that Half
Yard misappropriated any of your material or portions of your submission in any future Half Yard
programs or activities.
Half Yard is not obligated to return submitted materials to you. You should keep a copy of any materials
submitted. Do not send any materials you consider irreplaceable.
Half Yard’s consideration of materials you submit, or negotiations to purchase them, does not waive Half
Yard’s right to contest your copyrights, trademark, or other intellectual property rights.
Review of material you may submit does not imply that Half Yard agrees to compensate you. However,
should Half Yard choose to use any portion of your material that is legally protectible, Half Yard will
negotiate appropriate compensation with you. You acknowledge and agree that your entitlement to any
compensation is subject to you and Half Yard entering into a written contract signed by both parties
related to our use of your material.
Furthermore, you agree not to discuss with any third party the details of conversations or correspondence
you have with Half Yard unless you have the prior approval of Half Yard to do so.
Your acceptance of the foregoing will apply to all current and future submissions. The above conditions
may not be changed or waived except in writing and signed by an officer of Half Yard.
