1.3 Intellectual property rights to creations proposed by Website users who are employees of Publicis Groupe
Publicis Groupe may publish on this Website creative briefs inviting users of this Website who are employees of Publicis Groupe to propose original, unpublished creations (hereafter the "Creations"). By registering on this Website and proposing Creations, whether in response to briefs published by Publicis Groupe or on their own initiative without any brief, Publicis Groupe employees (hereinafter the "Authors") shall progressively assign to Publicis Groupe all intellectual property rights to the creations of which they are the Authors as they send the said creations to the Website.
The rights of reproduction, performance and adaptation regarding the Creations shall thus be assigned for the full period of copyright protection in France and abroad under the French Intellectual Property Code and international copyright conventions.
Such assignment shall allow Publicis Groupe or its affiliates to reproduce, perform and adapt the Creations (images and/or texts) in any format, on any data carriers and via any media, whether known or presently unknown, anywhere in the world, for any Publicis Groupe clients and in any communication campaign disseminated by any means whatsoever.
In the event that the intellectual property rights (copyrights and similar rights, particularly rights to trademarks, designs and models) are related to preliminary versions and are not the property of the Author, the Authors hereby agree to specify the source of the borrowed or adapted works in a note attached to the submitted Creation. The Authors shall mention the name of the author(s) of the first work incorporated into their Creation (e.g., the name of the composer of a musical work) and, if possible, the year of original publication of the said work. In that way, if Publicis Groupe wishes to produce the Creations for the purposes of one of its advertiser clients, Publicis Groupe may negotiate with the relevant rights-holders in order to obtain the authorizations and assignments of rights necessary for unchallenged exploitation of the Creations.
The above-mentioned assignment of rights shall be granted exclusively to the Publicis Groupe and the companies thereof and shall remain valid even in case of the cessation, for any reason, of the employment contract or contract for services between the Authors and the Publicis Groupe. Consequently, the participants agree to refrain from granting any rights of the same kind to third parties. .
