SERVICES AND CONTENT
The Content on the Site and Services provided may be updated, deleted or otherwise modified from time to time at MLC’s discretion.
The Site and the Services may offer opportunities for you to send messages or postings in connection with various features which may include, without limitation, auctions, contests, games, message boards, chat rooms and video features (each a "Message Feature" and, collectively, the "Message Features").
You must use the Message Features in a responsible manner. By entering the Site or using the Services, you expressly agree to not transmit any message (each, a "Message" and, collectively, the "Messages") in connection with any Message Feature that violates the Code of Conduct for the Site and Services as set forth below.

Display of any Message in any Message Feature or any User Name does not constitute approval or endorsement by us or our Vendors. You acknowledge that neither MLC nor our Vendors are responsible for, and cannot and do not guarantee, the accuracy or reliability of information in any Message posted or submitted by any user of the Site or Services.
By transmitting any Message or User Name or submitting ideas, articles, scripts, story lines, fan fiction, characters, drawings, creative ideas, concepts, know-how, processes, techniques, proposals, suggestions, plans, product names, technologies or materials, whether solicited or unsolicited, (each, a "Submission" and, collectively, "Submissions"), you are granting us a perpetual, royalty-free, non-exclusive, unrestricted, worldwide and irrevocable right and license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, translate, prepare derivative works based upon, distribute, perform or display such Submissions, in whole or in part, in any form, media or technology known or hereafter developed for any purpose, including, without limitation, advertising and promotional purposes (collectively, "Rights"). You agree that MLC may pass these Rights along to others with whom MLC has contractual relationships.

Solicited Submissions: At times, we may solicit Submissions from visitors to the Site, including, without limitation, information, ideas, artwork or other materials. It is our practice to post notices on the Site regarding our planned use of such materials where we solicit the Submission. Your provision of information in response to such a solicitation constitutes a grant by you to us of the Rights described above. In the event we seek to claim full ownership, rather than an irrevocable perpetual license of your Submission, you agree to assign all right title and interest to such Submission without any payment or further obligation to you and to take any and all action necessary to effect such assignment.
Unsolicited Submissions: Although we welcome your comments regarding, and your ideas and proposals for, the Site or Services, it is our policy not to accept or consider any Submissions that are unsolicited. The intent of this policy is to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings, legal or otherwise, when creative ideas, concepts or materials developed by MLC and/or our affiliates might appear to be similar to your Submission(s). If you do send any Submission(s) to MLC via the Site, Services, or otherwise, that are unsolicited, however, you agree that (i) your unsolicited Submission(s) are not being made in confidence or trust and that by making such Submission(s) no contractual or fiduciary relationship is created between you and MLC; (ii) any such unsolicited Submission(s) and copyright become the property of and will be owned by MLC and may be used, copied, sublicensed, adapted, transmitted, distributed, publicly performed, published, displayed or deleted as MLC sees fit; (iii) you are not entitled to any compensation, credit or notice whatsoever in connection with such Submission(s); and (iv) by sending an unsolicited Submission you waive the right to make any claim against MLC or our affiliates relating to any unsolicited Submissions by you, including, without limitation, unfair competition, breach of implied contract or breach of confidentiality.

Notice and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement
Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2) ("DMCA"), MLC has designated to the U.S. Copyright Office an agent to receive notifications of claimed copyright infringement relating to the Site (the "Designated Agent"). All such notifications relating to the Site must be submitted in a manner consistent with the DMCA to the following Designated Agent:
Major League Cricket
Suite 7, 1 First Street
Los Altos, CA 94022
Attn: General Counsel
To be effective, the notification must be a written communication that includes the following:
- a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
- identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
- identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material. Providing URLs in the body of an email is the best way to help us locate content quickly;
- information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
- a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
We reserve the right to remove any posted submission that infringes the copyright of any person under the laws of the United States upon receipt of a notice that complies with the requirements of 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3). United States law provides significant penalties for submitting such a statement falsely.
