Hi, thanks for your question, yes you can sitelock the game for our domains and later you can request for removal and also if we like the game we might talk about sponsoring it.

"8.2 License. By submitting a Registration, Developer hereby upon Registration provides to Company an irrevocable, worldwide, fully-paid, royalty free, sub-licensable license to the game as published on Company’s websites, so that Company may use the game in any and all media now known or hereinafter developed without territorial or time limitations."

Does this mean game is exclusive to Y8? Or developer can still sell sitelocks?

Hi Ozdy : There was a missunderstanding with our legal team here... Our goal is not at all to grab exclusive rights, on the opposite -as replied upon- we want to let all rights to your end and we'll be happy to buy possible licenses after the contest.

We are deleting that 8.2 point asap. (plus updating nearby details)

Sorry again

Hehe checked with lawyer, my bad it's rightly written, let me explain : 8.2 grant us nothing else than the right to publish the game contest version on Y8. As soon as there's a modification you have all rights on the game again.

AND this part below allow you to ask for removal from our listing anytime : 

""""

On (date of the results) 2016, each Developer, including the five (5) winners, will have the choice whether to:
(i) leave the game on Company’s websites; or 
(ii) forward to Company a newer version of the game; or
(iii) ask Company to remove the game. Company will do so under the best delays upon receipt of a written notice.

""""

Clearer? Blamed our lawyer a bit too fast Innocent
