Literary NFT Agreement

LITERARY NON-FUNGIBLE NIFTYLIT TOKEN AGREEMENT

FOR INDIVIDUAL, NON-COMMERCIAL USE

This Literary Non-Fungible NiftyLit Token Agreement (this “Agreement”) is a legally binding agreement between you and NiftyLit, LLC, a Delaware domestic limited liability company with offices at 634 Dapplegray Court, Walnut Creek, CA (“NiftyLit”) that describes the rights in Artwork (as such term is defined below) you may obtain when you purchase a literary non-fungible NiftyLit Token from us (the “NiftyLit Token”). This Agreement is in addition to, but not instead of, any contracts you make with the NFT marketplace making a NiftyLit Token available to you, as well as any related decentralized technologies, websites, services, tools, applications, smart contracts, or application program interfaces (“API”) provided by NiftyLit or third party-vendors (including without limitation Ozone Networks, Inc. d/b/a OpenSea). Should any third-party Agreement of use conflict with or otherwise be inconsistent with this Agreement, the Agreement of this Agreement shall prevail.

Your purchase of a NiftyLit Token signifies you accept and agree to be bound by this Agreement.

1.          The NiftyLit Token is created by or on behalf of NiftyLit and is specifically associated with one or more works of authorship (the “Creative Work”) such that, if you own the NiftyLit Token, you can access such Creative Work through the NiftyLit Token pursuant to this Agreement.  It is important to understand, and you hereby acknowledge and agree, that the NiftyLit Token is separate from the Creative Work.  Although the NiftyLit Token itself is sold or otherwise transferred to you, the Creative Work associated with the NiftyLit Token is only licensed to you, and not sold or otherwise transferred to you. You therefore acknowledge and agree that NiftyLit or its licensors own all legal right, title, and interest in and to the Creative Work and all intellectual property rights therein.

2.          Subject to your compliance with these Agreement, NiftyLit hereby grants to you, to the extent of its respective rights in the Creative Work, and solely for so long as you are the legal owner of the NiftyLit Token, a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to access or display the Creative Work using the NiftyLit Token, solely for your personal, non-commercial purposes.  Except for the license granted above, NiftyLit and its affiliates retain all right, title, and interest in and to the Creative Work. Should you wish to use any portion of the NiftyLit Token for commercial purposes, you must contact NiftyLit for a separate license.

3.          In connection with the Creative Work, you may not, or attempt to, or permit or enable any third party to:  (a) separate the Creative Work from the NiftyLit Token either digitally or by creating physical copies of any portion of the Creative Work; (b) modify the Creative Work or NiftyLit Token; (c) trademark, copyright, or otherwise acquire additional intellectual property rights in or to the Creative Work; (d) use the Creative Work in connection with images, videos, other media or content including without limitation merchandise that includes, contains, or consists of the Creative Work; (e) associate the Creative Work to include content that is hateful, intolerant, violent, cruel or that could reasonably be found to constitute hate speech or infringe upon the rights of others; (f) create, sell, sublicense, share, publish, or attempt to sell fractionalized interests in the NiftyLit Token or Creative Work; (g) use the Creative Work to advertise, market, or sell any product or service; (h) attempt to mint, tokenize, or create an additional cryptographic token representing the Creative Work on any platform; (i) falsify, misrepresent, or conceal the authorship of the Creative Work or the NiftyLit Token; (j) otherwise commercially use or exploit any Creative Work for your or any third party’s benefit, including by selling copies of any Artwork or selling derivative works embodying any Creative Work; or (k) alter the NiftyLit Token to include any software, link, or other technology or means to cause access of the NiftyLit Token to expose the owner to any virus, worm, malware, or other malicious computer code that either permits unauthorized access to, destroys, disrupts, disables, distorts, compromises the security or confidentiality of information contained in a computer system, or otherwise harms or impedes in any manner any computer, software, firmware, hardware, system, network.

4.          The Creative Work may incorporate intellectual property, including copyright-protected materials, trade names, trademarks or service marks, and the names, likenesses, or images (the “IP”).  As between you and NiftyLit, such IP is owned by NiftyLit or its affiliates.  Your use of such IP is subject to the license granted, and you may not use any such IP in connection with any business, product, or service, or in any manner that may imply endorsement of any business, message, product, or service, or that is likely to cause confusion or dilute, blur, or tarnish such IP.  All use of such IP, including any goodwill generated by such use, shall inure to the benefit of NiftyLit or its affiliates. The rights that you have in and to the Creative Work are limited to those expressly described in Section 2 of this Agreement. NiftyLit (on behalf of itself and its licensors) reserves all other rights in and to the Creative Work, including all copyrights (e.g., the right to reproduce and make copies, to prepare derivate works, to distribute, sell, or transfer, to display, to perform, and to publicly display and publicly perform).

5.          You may not alter any of the content provided with the NiftyLit Token, including without limitation: (a) identification of NiftyLit and any others designated to receive attribution and (b) a copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property notice.  Other than your compliance with the foregoing obligation, you have no right to use NiftyLit’s name or any trademarks, logos, or other IP rights.

6.          The license granted in Section 2 applies only to the extent that you continue to own the applicable NiftyLit Token. If at any time you sell, trade, donate, give away, or transfer your NiftyLit Token to a new owner, the license granted in Section 2 shall be transferred to that new owner, and you will have no further rights in or to the NiftyLit Token or Creative Work associated with the NiftyLit Token. If at any time you dispose of your NiftyLit Token for any reason, or sell, trade, donate, give away, or transfer your NiftyLit Token, the license granted in Section 2 will immediately expire with respect to that NiftyLit Token without the requirement of notice or any further action, and you will have no further rights in or to the NiftyLit Token or Creative Work associated with that NiftyLit Token. Your license to the Creative Work will also immediately terminate (without the requirement of notice) if you breach this Agreement.

7.          You may sell or otherwise transfer the NiftyLit Token to a third party, provided that the following conditions are met:

7.1.     such sale or other transfer must be cryptographically verified (i.e., proof of such sale or other transfer must be recorded on the relevant blockchain);

7.2.     such sale or other transfer must comply with (i) any applicable Agreement of the marketplace or other platform on which such sale or other transfer takes place and (ii) any applicable laws, regulations, and rules; and

7.3.     prior to such sale or other transfer, you must (i) provide notice to the would-be transferee that such transferee’s use of (including any access to) the Creative Work will be conditional upon such transferee entering into the then-current version of these Agreement, and (ii) ensure that such transferee is provided with an opportunity to review these Agreement.
