2. Underlying Ideas. I understand, and the Publisher acknowledges, that I retain my rights in the original ideas, data and analyses reflected in my Work, and that I may freely discuss and develop them in other contexts. I agree that if I later use or present similar or related materials, including excerpts from the Work itself, I will not in any way designate them as, or indicate that they are or were, endorsed, sponsored, or approved by the Publisher or otherwise associated with the Publisher.

3. Publicity. I grant the Publisher the right to use my name, biographic material, voice, portrait, and likeness for the purpose of publicizing the Work, pursuant to the rights granted above.

4. Compensation. Unless explicitly agreed otherwise, I waive any and all compensation from the Publisher for the grant or exercise of the rights granted above. I waive any "moral rights" that I might otherwise have in the Work or any works derived there from.

5. Warranties. I represent and warrant that nothing in my Work violates or infringes any copyrights, trademarks, patents, or other property rights or personal rights of others, and either that:

(a) I am the sole author and owner of all rights in the Work, including all materials included in the Work; or
(b) to the extent my Work includes materials that are not original to me, or in which all rights are not owned by me, I have obtained all written consents necessary for Publisher to exercise all rights to the Work granted above. I further represent and warrant that none of the material included in the Work has been previously published, or if it has been previously published, in whole or in part, that I have obtained all written consents necessary for Publisher to exercise all rights in the Work granted above. I will provide all such consents to Publisher no later than 30 days after executing this Agreement. If all necessary consents are not provided, Publisher may refuse to publish my Work or may require me to modify the Work to remove any materials not written by me or owned by me.

6. Indemnification. I agree to hold the Publisher, its members, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensees, and assigns harmless and indemnify them for any costs, claims, or losses whatsoever (including reasonable attorney's fees and costs) which may arise, in whole or in part, out of my submission of my Work to Publisher or Publisher’s exercise of any of the rights granted above.
