Submission Policy

New Orleans Moving Pictures Co., LLC (“Company,” “we” or, “us”) is pleased to hear from its audiences and welcomes comments regarding our products, including our online services.

Unfortunately, however, our long-standing cast iron policy does not allow us to accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions, or materials other than those we have specifically requested under very specific conditions.  Of which, submissions through this website and its affiliated eMail addresses do not count.

While we value your feedback on our services and products, we request you be specific in your comments on those services and products, and you promise to not submit any creative ideas, suggestions or materials, including but not limited to stories or character ideas, screenplays, or original artwork.

We hope you will understand it is our intent of this cast iron policy to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by us or our affiliates’ professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Accordingly, we demand you DO NOT SEND us any original creative materials such as show designs, photographs, drawings, or original artwork you expect to be compensated for or you would like to keep private.

If you send or post certain specific submissions at our request (e.g., via message boards or in connection with contests), or if you send us creative suggestions, ideas, notes, photographs, drawings, concepts, or any other information (each, a “Submission” and collectively, “Submissions”) despite our demand you NOT send us any unsolicited Submissions or other creative materials, Submission will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary in each instance. For purposes of this paragraph, all user content shall be deemed included in the definition of Submissions.

None of Submissions shall be subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of us, and we shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submissions. Any Submission may be used by Company without restriction for any purpose whatsoever, including, without limitation, reproduction, disclosure, transmission, publication, broadcast or posting, and you hereby irrevocably waive, release and give up any claim any use of such Submission violates any of your rights, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, moral rights, privacy rights, proprietary or other property rights, publicity rights, or right to credit for the material or ideas.

Company shall have and is hereby irrevocably granted the right, but not the obligation, to reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, broadcast, license, perform, post, sell, translate, incorporate, create derivative works from, exploit, distribute and otherwise use the Submission in any and all media, now known or hereafter devised, throughout the universe, in perpetuity, without according you any compensation or credit.

By submitting a Submission to Site or Company, you represent that such Submission is original with you and does not violate or infringe upon the rights of any third parties, including, without limitation, any intellectual property rights and rights of publicity and/or privacy. Submissions to Site and/or Company will not be acknowledged or returned. You agree and understand Company is not obligated to use any Submission you make to Site or Company and you have no right to compel such use.

You hereby acknowledge and agree your relationship with Company is not a confidential, fiduciary, or other special relationship, and your decision to submit any material to Company does not place Company in a position that is any different from the position held by members of the general public with regard to your Submission.

You understand and acknowledge Company has wide access to ideas, stories, designs, and other literary materials, and new ideas are constantly being submitted to it or being developed by Company’s own employees. Many ideas or stories may be competitive with, similar or identical to your Submission in structure, purpose, function, theme, idea, plot, format or other respects. You acknowledge and agree that you will not be entitled to any compensation as a result of Company’s use of any such similar or identical material.

You acknowledge, with respect to any claim you may have relating to or arising out of Company’s actual or alleged exploitation or use of any material you submit to Site and/or Company, the damage, if any, thereby caused will not be irreparable or otherwise sufficient to entitle you to injunctive or other equitable relief or to in any way enjoin the exploitation or other use of any Company film, television show, platform, product or service based on or allegedly based on the material, and your rights and remedies in any such event shall be strictly limited to the right to recover damages, if any, in an action at law.

Applicable law may restrict or limit the foregoing provisions of this Submission Policy. If so, without in any way limiting the foregoing, you agree that in no event shall Company’s liability exceed the amount payable to a writer under the Writers Guild of America Basic Agreement for a network prime time story or teleplay.

For any questions, suggestions, or concerns related to this Submissions Policy, please email Legal {at} NOMPCo.com

DO NOT SUBMIT ANY CREATIVE MATERIALS TO THIS EMAIL ADDRESS.  THEY WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY DELETED.
