8. Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes and Choice of Law

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. IT CONTAINS PROCEDURES FOR MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.

A. Arbitration

You and us agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms through final and binding arbitration, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights). Under such circumstances, we may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Service, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.

B. Arbitration Procedures

Any and all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be subject to binding arbitration under the auspices of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. (“JAMS”) and commenced by an arbitration notice given in accordance with AMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures then in effect (the “Rules”).  If there is a conflict between the Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, the rules set forth in these Terms will govern. The arbitration shall take place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and shall be submitted to a single arbitrator in accordance with the Rules.  The person selected must have substantial experience in the motion picture industry.  If within ten (10) Business Days after the issuance of an arbitration notice, the parties hereto have failed to agree on an arbitrator who is available and willing to serve, and not otherwise disqualified, then the arbitrator shall be selected in accordance with the Rules.  If any arbitration is instituted, the prevailing party shall be awarded its costs, including without limitation reasonable outside attorneys’ fees.

C. Authority of Arbitrator

The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and us, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the Rules, and these Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us. 

C. No Class Actions

You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.

D. Waiver of Jury Trial

THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and us in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND US WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE.

E. Choice of Law / Forum Selection

In any circumstances where the agreement to arbitrate disputes permits the parties to litigate in court, these Terms shall be interpreted, construed and enforced in accordance with, and the respective rights and obligations of the parties hereto shall be governed by, the laws of the Province of British Columbia and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein, notwithstanding the rules of conflict of laws of the respective jurisdictions of the parties hereto.  You further expressly consent and agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of a court of competent jurisdiction located in Vancouver, British Columbia.

9. Disclaimer of Representations and Warranties

 THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED TO YOU ON AN "AS IS", "AS AVAILABLE", AND "WITH ALL FAULTS" BASIS. NEITHER WE NOR ANY OF OUR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, MANAGERS, EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS (COLLECTIVELY, THE "PARTIES") MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR ENDORSEMENTS OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER AS TO THE CONTENT OR OTHER SERVICES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, OR ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUIET ENJOYMENT AND FREEDOM FROM COMPUTER VIRUS. BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICE YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOUR ACTIVITIES ARE LAWFUL IN EVERY JURISDICTION WHERE YOU ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICE.

10. Limitations of Our Liability

THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER THE ASSERTED LIABILITY OR DAMAGES ARE BASED ON CONTRACT, INDEMNIFICATION, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, STATUTE OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY.

You hereby agree to defend (at our election), protect, indemnify, save and hold us and our parent, subsidiary, affiliated and related companies, and each of their respective owners, officers, directors, employees, shareholders, agents, representatives, attorneys, designees, assigns, successors and licensees (collectively, the “Indemnitees”) harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, causes of action, suits, legal proceedings, recoveries, judgements, losses, liabilities, penalties, damages, interest, fines, costs, charges, disbursements and expenses of any kind or nature whatsoever (including, without limitation, attorney’s fees) imposed on, incurred by, asserted against or suffered by any of the Producer Indemnitees arising from, in connection with or otherwise relating to: (i) your breach or alleged breach of these Terms; (ii) your Submissions; (iii) your misuse of the Service; (iv) your violation of any laws, rules, regulations, codes, statutes, ordinances or orders of any governmental or quasi-governmental authorities; (v) your violation of the rights of any third party, including any intellectual property right, publicity, confidentiality, property or privacy right; (vi) your use of a Third Party Service; or (vii) any misrepresentation made by you. We reserve the right to assume, at your expense, the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you. You agree to cooperate with our defense of any claim. You will not in any event settle any claim without our prior written consent.

12. Waiver of Injunctive or other Equitable Relief

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN AN INJUNCTION OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF OF ANY KIND, SUCH AS ANY COURT OR OTHER ACTION THAT MAY INTERFERE WITH OR PREVENT THE DEVELOPMENT OR EXPLOITATION OF ANY WEBSITE, APPLICATION, CONTENT, SUBMISSIONS, PRODUCT, SERVICE, OR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OWNED, LICENSED, USED OR CONTROLLED BY US OR A LICENSOR OF US.

13. Termination

We reserve the right, at any time, to terminate or suspend access to the Service, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever.
