The information and materials provided through this service are intended to educate and inform. With the exception of information and materials already in the public domain or not eligible for copyright protection (which may include, state and federal court opinions, state and federal statutes, and any work of the United States government), all materials provided through this service are protected by copyright. It is the obligation of the user to abide by applicable copyright laws.
Abuse of the Website
ExampleMotion endeavors to keep the website working properly and users of the website safe. Please report problems, offensive content, and policy violations to us.
We work to ensure that listed items do not infringe upon the copyright, trademark, proprietary or other rights of third parties. If you believe that your rights have been violated, please notify us and we will investigate.
Without limiting other remedies, we may limit, suspend, or terminate our service and user accounts, prohibit access to our website, delay or remove hosted content, and take technical and legal steps to keep users from accessing the website if we think that they are creating problems, possible legal liabilities, or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies. We also reserve the right to cancel unconfirmed accounts or accounts that have been inactive for a long time.
When you give us content, you grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sub-licensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise the copyright, publicity, and database rights (but no other rights) you have in the content, in any media known now or in the future.
Fees and Services
Joining ExampleMotion and posting content on the website is free. We do charge fees for using other services, including fees for the sale of content. When you list an item or use a service that has a fee you have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged based on our Fee Schedule, which we may change from time to time. Changes to that Policy are effective after we provide you with at least 14-days' notice by posting the changes on the website. We may choose to temporarily change the fees for our services for new services, and such changes are effective when we post the new service on the website.
Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars. You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with the website in a timely manner with a valid payment method. If for any reason your payment method fails or your account is past due, we may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms. (This includes charging other payment methods on file with us, retaining collection agencies and legal counsel.)
By accepting the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you agree to be bound by the terms of our fee schedule. Our fee schedule is simple, for every document you upload, and is sold, you will receive half of the closing value. We mail checks to our users quarterly for their portion of the sales price. The remaining fifty percent of the sales price is a service fee paid to ExampleMotion.com to offset the costs of creating and maintaining the website, and to pay relevant transaction fees.
The closing value is defined as the final price paid for the purchase of content. This is determined on a per transaction basis.
ExampleMotion.com does not accept returns. ExampleMotion acts as an intermediary for lawyers to exchange legal documents, therefore we cannot accept any returns. If you have a problem with a document you purchased on the ExampleMotion.com website, please contact ExampleMotion.com and we will do our best to resolve your issue, but unfortunately we do not have the ability to accept returns. By accepting the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you agree to be bound by our no return policy.
If you have a dispute with one or more users, you release us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code section 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor."
You will indemnify and hold us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees), harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of this Agreement, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee employer or franchiser franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.

If a dispute arises between you and ExampleMotion, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, you and ExampleMotion agree that we will resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity that arises out of this Agreement or our services in accordance with one of the subsections below or as we and you otherwise agree in writing. Before resorting to these alternatives, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution by contacting us in writing. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation. Failure to contact ExampleMotion in writing to resolve the claim shall be considered an Improperly Filed Claim.
Improperly Filed Claims. All claims you bring against ExampleMotion must be resolved in accordance with this Resolution of Disputes Section. All claims filed or brought contrary to the Dispute Resolution Section shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to the Dispute Resolution Section, ExampleMotion may recover attorneys' fees and costs up to $1000, provided that ExampleMotion has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
Law and Forum for Disputes. This Agreement shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California between California residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against ExampleMotion must be resolved by a court located in San Francisco County, California, except as otherwise agreed by the parties or as described in the Arbitration Option paragraph below. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within San Francisco County, California for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
Arbitration Option. For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Digital Millennium Copyright Act
It is ExampleMotion's policy to respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

(i) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
(ii) Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works on the ExampleMotion Services are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works on the ExampleMotion Services;
(iii) 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 to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit ExampleMotion to locate the material;
(iv) Information reasonably sufficient to permit ExampleMotion 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;
(v) 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 (for example, "I am under the good faith belief that the use of the copyrighted content that is identified herein is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law."); and
(vi) 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 (for example, "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in this notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner, of the copyright(s) that is allegedly infringed by the aforementioned content.").
