copied from the derby entry terms & conditions:
"6. Copyright Ownership. Artist retains copyright ownership of the Artwork submitted to Woot. Woot may, at Woot’s discretion and expense, register the Artwork with the U.S. Copyright Office in the Artist’s name. Woot may record the license granted to it in this Agreement, and Artist agrees to assist Woot as necessary with such recordation, including by executing any documents related to the recordation that Woot may reasonably request.
"7. Grant Of Rights. Artist grants Woot the exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, world-wide, right and license to use, reproduce, print, publish, publicly display, transmit, market, sell, distribute, and sublicense the Artwork in all forms and media now known or hereafter developed. Woot may make or authorize non-substantive changes to the Artwork to prepare it for production use."
based on this language, i infer that exclusive printing rites apparently is not the same as owning copyright. but effectively the result is the same thing - can't be printed elsewhere.
