Hey guys, you might have seen the LINE Webtoon test dA is promoting for Naver. If you value your artistic skill and don't want a company to use if for free and COMPLETELY DISREGARD YOUR RIGHTS as an artist, please please DON'T waste time on it. I don't even think dA has read the fine print, but if you read the comments of the LINE competition, you'll see that most people are angry with the T&C.

YOU PROBABLY WON'T EVEN BE ABLE TO SUE THEM. God I almost decided to participate :faint: ...I'll probably be the first person with legal training they've scammed LOL. Feel free repost this journal to warn your watchers/friends!

I'll be sharing :iconhjerim:'s comments about the fine print. Hjerim thanks for writing this, I hope you don't mind me reposting this! She says in a comment:

A breakdown of the nastier parts of the fine print for everybody. I'm not by any means trying to discourage, dishearten or generally scare anybody off, but the prospect of $30,000 can be just tempting enough to make a person jump in the deep end without checking whether sharks are in the water.


For three(3) years after your submissions, You acknowledge and agree that (i) your submissions will be posted on the LINE Webtoon service at NAVER’S discretion; (ii) you have the right and authority to, and do hereby, grant to NAVER a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free and sub-licensable (through multiple tiers), right, in any media existing now or in the future, to use, copy, reproduce, distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, edit, modify, adapt, translate their submissions, and to prepare derivative works based on their submissions for the service of NAVER and its subsidiaries and affiliates or for the service of the third party licensed by NAVER.

This one basically means that by sumbitting your piece, you're giving it to them, free, for three years to do more-or-less whatever they want with. This includes but is not limited to using it, tracing it, distributing it, or letting any third party associated with them do the same... and they don't have to pay you a penny. This goes for all submissions, not just the winner.

If the Grand Prize winner is actively enrolled in an art class in a post-secondary school or university (“School”) at the time of entry, the school will be offered a donation of $30,000 to the school to be used for its art department. If the School does not have an art department, then the School can determine how to use the prize money. School will be required to sign documentation formally accepting the donation to receive the prize.

If you're in school and you win the prize, it'll go to your school's art department rather than to you. If your school doesn't have an art department, too bad, because your school is still getting the money to spend on whatever they like.

Acceptance of any prize shall constitute and signify each winner’s agreement and consent that Sponsor and its designees may use the winner’s name, city, state, likeness, Submission and/or prize information in connection with the Contest for promotional, advertising or other purposes, worldwide, in any and all media now known or hereafter devised, including the Internet, without limitation and without further payment, notification, permission or other consideration, except where prohibited by law. 

After you win, NAVER is allowed to display your face, name, where you live, and your art for any purpose they want. They're not going to pay you for it, and they don't even have to ask you or tell you when they're planning to slap a photo of your face on the side of a bus or whatever they choose.

[...] any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Contest or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the competent jurisdiction within Republic of Korea; (2) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering this Contest, but in no event attorneys’ fees; and (3) under no circumstances will entrant be permitted to obtain awards for, and entrant hereby waives all rights to claim, indirect, punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased.

If you end up needing to sue them for any reason, you have to go to Korea to do it before a Korean court, and your case will be considered under Korean law, NOT under US law or the law of the country you're from. You also can't sue for anything except out-of-pocket expenses, which they've already written off as Not Their Problem in another part of the terms of service, so you're likely to end up with nil. This is actually a pretty regular precaution that corporations take, but it's important to understand nonetheless.
