How are intellectual property rights handled?

Participants or their licensors own the rights to the Submission they create during the Contest. This means that a Submission may contain Technology owned or licensed by a third party, but only if your license to such Technology allows you to license your Submission via non-exclusive royalty free (NERF) license agreements. You and your team must abide by the terms of any licenses associated with any third-party Technology used as part of your Submission, including any payment terms or other license terms that could apply for continued use of the Technology under non-exclusive royalty free (NERF) license agreements.
