6. Hydra

 

6.1 Generative AI Tools and Content. Subject to the terms of your subscription plan, portions of the Platform may provide you with access to Hydra, Rightsify’s set of proprietary generative music Service (“Hydra”) that will enable you to produce user-generated music and sound effects (“GAI Content”) from text prompts. Hydra uses an artificial intelligence (“AI”) tool to generate this GAI Content. Rightsify cannot guarantee the suitability or appropriateness of the resulting audio you generate. Subject only to the applicable provisions of these Terms, you are solely responsible for your use of Hydra, including your text prompts, generation, and subsequent use of GAI Content.

6.2 GAI Content Ownership and License. You acknowledge and understand that Rightsify, and not you, owns, and shall continue to own, all right title and interest in and to Hydra and any GAI Content generated by you through Hydra, including, without limitation, any copyrights or other intellectual property rights that exist, or that may exist, in or to any such GAI Content. Subject to the provisions of your subscription plan and these Terms, Rightsify hereby grants you a worldwide, perpetual, revocable (solely in connection with your breach of these Terms, any applicable Additional Terms and/or your subscription plan), royalty free, fully paid-up, right and license to use any GAI Content you  generate through Hydra for any commercial on non-commercial use, in any and all media now known or later devised.  You are responsible for the use of your GAI Content, including for ensuring that any use of your GAI Content does not violate any applicable law, intellectual property right of any third party, these Terms, or any applicable Additional Terms.

 

6.3 Text Prompts. Rightsify may block certain text prompts if we find in our sole discretion that they are inappropriate, objectionable, or may expose us or others to any harm or liability. You represent and warrant that you own all necessary right, title, and interest in and to any text prompts you upload to Hydra, including, without limitation, all necessary copyrights contained therein.

 

6.4 GAI Content Similarity. You acknowledge and understand that due to the nature of machine learning, GAI Content generated by Hydra at your request or using your text prompts may not be unique to you and Hydra may generate the same or similar GAI Content for Rightsify, other users, or third parties. For example, if you ask Hydra to generate a song with a text prompt such as “slow chillout lounge for a luxury hotel lobby” and receive a particular output, other users may also offer similar prompts and receive similar GAI Content outputs. Those responses that are requested by and generated for other users are not considered your GAI Content.

 

6.5 Rightsify’s Use of Your Text Prompts and GAI Content.  You acknowledge and understand that Rightsify may use your text prompts, and GAI Content to develop and improve the Services and the Platform, and to develop and provide new products and services. You grant Rightsify a nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty free, transferable, sublicensable, perpetual license to use your text prompts for such purposes. Rightsify reserves the right to use your GAI Content for the same (or any other) purposes.

THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN RIGHTSIFY AND YOU.

16. Dispute Resolution

Please read the following arbitration agreement (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully.  It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Rightsify (“Disputes”) and limits the manner in which you can seek relief therefrom. The Arbitration Agreement survives termination or expiration of these Terms.

16.1 Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution.

We are always interested in resolving Disputes amicably and efficiently, and most User concerns can be resolved quickly and to the User’s satisfaction by contacting customer support at help@rightsify.com. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (a “Notice”).  The Notice to us should be sent to Rightsify Group, LLC, 117 East Colorado Boulevard, Suite 600, Pasadena, California, 91105 (the “Notice Address”).  The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (b) set forth the specific relief sought.  If we and you do not resolve the Dispute within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received by us, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding.  During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by us or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or we are entitled.

16.2 Agreement to Arbitrate.

After the pre-arbitration dispute resolution process, you agree that any and all remaining Disputes that have arisen or may arise between you and us, whether arising out of or relating to these Terms (including any alleged breach thereof), any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, and any threshold questions of arbitrability of the Dispute, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that (a) you may assert individual claims in small claims court within the scope of its jurisdiction, if your claims qualify and (b) you or we may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents).  Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf.  You agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.  Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury.

16.3 Arbitration Procedures.

You agree that any Dispute will be settled by final and binding arbitration, using the English language, administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “Consumer Arbitration Rules”) then in effect (those rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this section, and as of the date of these Terms). Arbitration will be handled by a sole arbitrator in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the Consumer Arbitration Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration.  The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms as a court would.  All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and threshold arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement or the Dispute.  Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under these Terms and applicable law.  Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.

 

Unless we and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances.  If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall be made by the arbitrator.  If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the Consumer Arbitration Rules.  If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Consumer Arbitration Rules.  Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.

16.4 Costs of Arbitration.

Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement.  If the value of the relief sought is US$10,000 or less, at your request, we will pay all Arbitration Fees.  If the value of relief sought is more than US$10,000 and you are able to demonstrate to the arbitrator that you are economically unable to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees or if the arbitrator otherwise determines for any reason that you should not be required to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees, we will pay your portion of such fees.  In addition, if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of the Arbitration Fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive.  Any payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules.

16.5 ARBITRATION OPT-OUT:

YOU MAY OPT OUT OF RESOLVING DISPUTES BY ARBITRATION BY EMAILING US WITHIN 30 DAYS OF FIRST ACCEPTING THE THESE TERMS AND TELLING US YOU WOULD LIKE TO OPT OUT OF MANDATORY ARBITRATION, OTHERWISE YOU SHALL BE BOUND TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS. YOU MUST INCLUDE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME, YOUR MAILING ADDRESS, YOUR EMAIL, AND YOUR MOBILE PHONE NUMBER IN THE EMAIL. IF YOU OPT-OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, WE WILL ALSO NOT BE BOUND BY ARBITRATION

16.6 Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief.

YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S); EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY PURSUE A CLAIM FOR, AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF UNDER APPLICABLE LAW TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED FOR THE ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS PROVISION.

16.7 Confidentiality.

All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.

16.8 Severability.

If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the section entitled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified.  If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of the section above entitled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void, unless such provisions are deemed to be invalid or unenforceable solely with respect to claims for public injunctive relief.  The remainder of these Terms will continue to apply.  If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and the Terms shall be enforceable as so modified.

16.9 Future Changes to Arbitration Agreement.

Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, we agree that if we make any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of the Services, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above.  By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).

17. General

17.1 Entire Agreement

These Terms, including our Privacy Policy, any Additional Terms, and the terms of your subscription(s), constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Rightsify and you regarding the Platform, the Services, Materials, and GAI Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Rightsify and you regarding the Platform, the Services, Materials, and GAI Content.
