Official Legally Binding Stuff
I acknowledge that SSI and its Subscribers receive numerous submissions of ideas, formats, stories, suggestions, screenplays, and the like, and that new ideas for motion pictures and television programs are constantly being submitted to or being developed by SSI and by its Subscribers. I also acknowledge that many stories and ideas are similar, and different stories and ideas often relate to one or more common underlying themes. I acknowledge that SSI and its Subscribers may have had access to and/or may have independently created or have previously created ideas, themes, formats, stories, suggestions, screenplays and/or other materials which may be similar or identical to themes, plots, characters, ideas, formats or other elements of the Material now being submitted by me. I understand and agree that I will not be entitled to any compensation because of the use by SSI and/or by its Subscribers of any such similar or identical ideas, themes, formats, stories, suggestions, stories or screenplays.
I understand that it's Spec Scout and its subscribers' job to review stories, and I understand that as such, they get a lot of varied story ideas, many of which are similar. I understand that I'm not entitled to compensation because of a script that sells on the site which, by happenstance, may have ideas or characters similar to my own.
