Modification of the materials or use of the materials for any other purpose is a violation of LA's copyright and other proprietary rights. For purposes of these terms, the use of any such material on any other Web site or networked computer environment is prohibited. All trademarks, service marks, and trade names are proprietary to LA.

LA is pleased to hear from its loyal fans and welcomes your comments regarding LA sites. Unfortunately, however, LA's company policy does not allow it to accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions, or materials other than those it has specifically requested. We hope you will understand that it is the intent of this policy to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by LA's professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Accordingly, we must, regretfully, ask that you do not send us any original creative materials such as stories or character ideas, screenplays, or original artwork unless as specified in official contests or viral video campaigns. While we do value your feedback on our services and products, we request that you be specific in your comments on those services and products, and not submit any creative ideas, suggestions, or materials. While LA does support it`s fans and their activities by through affiliates and link communities showcasing an individual`s work, we will not do so without written concent. Please understand that showcasing a work on thhis site does not preclude to any endorsments, contract, legal agreements between LA and the contributor, nor does it entitle the contributor to any rights to LAs properties/ works or undpecified exclusive usage of LAs name or trademarks.
If at our request you send certain specific submissions (e.g., postings to chat, boards, or contests) or, despite our request that you not send us any other creative materials you send us creative suggestions, ideas, notes, drawings, concepts, or other information (collectively, the "Submissions"), the Submissions shall be deemed, and shall remain, the property of LA. None of the Submissions shall be subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of LA, and LA shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submissions. Without limitation of the foregoing, LA shall exclusively own all now known or hereafter existing rights to the Submissions of every kind and nature throughout the universe and shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Submissions for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to the provider of the Submissions.
