Contestants' rights

GSC's stance on contestants' rights is as follows:

1) Basically, while not stipulated on the website, GSC assumes that by submitting your story, you are automatically surrendering all rights to control distribution of your story

- this is crucial, as GSC wants to ensure that posting the story online and putting it on the disc can be done easily without referring to the authors or need to ask their permission (which would take a lot of time).

- It is assumed that by sending one's story to GSC one wants his story to be posted on-line and distributed together with the game itself.

2) However, the rights to royalties, in case those stories are to published by a book publisher seperate from the game for profitable purposes, will be reserved for the authors. GSC will negotiate with the authors whose work are chosen on an individual basis.

-needless to say, money are not made because of the stories on the CD.
