Website Rules & Instructions
We, at Labyrinth of Arts, would like for everyone to use and enjoy the various methods of expression such as Fan Art or the Blog. However, there are rules, and the rules exist for a reason. Please read and respect the posted rules below.
If it's LEWD, CRUDE, OR NUDE - don't post it!
It will be filtered and removed.
Fan Art: Art must pertain to a particular listed story. Fan Art will be loaded every day, once a day. A Fan Art picture will display as the Prize for correctly answering a quiz.
Graffiti Wall Art: Post any art, any subject, any style as long as it does not break the first rule. If it's LEWD, CRUDE, OR NUDE - don't post it. Graffiti Wall will fill in a first-come-first-serve order. When full, it will remain on display ~ 2 weeks then be archived. A new blank Graffiti Wall will appear.
In order to post Fan Art, Graffiti Art, or comment on the blog, you must register and sign in. IT IS FREE.
Register once but sign in each time you post on the site.
There are two requirements in order to post Fan Art:
You must NAME your art piece.
You must say something about it on the blog (what inspired you, etc)
You do not need to register or sign in just to look at Fan Art or the Graffiti wall.
Follow Grandma's Golden Rule: If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.
Rude or obscene remarks about another's art work will be removed.
Do not attempt to download artwork from this site.
It is not allowed.
DO download e-books from this site.

OVER 18 years old
I ACCEPTED the terms and conditions below
I (herein equivalent to and identified as, or understood to be "Artist," regardless of medium, be it print, photographic, literary, etc.) hereby irrevocably grant now, and in the future, to Labyrinth of Arts Ltd. Co. (herein identified also as and understood to be in force the same as Labyrinth of Arts), your affiliates, licensees, successors and assignees (collectively, "You," and "Your") sole and exclusive ownership of all rights, including Commercial Rights and Personal Rights (as defined below), title and interest in and to the written, sketched, painted, photographed, electronic visual and/or written material, artwork, literary material, etc. (collectively "Work," or "Works") and all elements contained in the Work, regardless of the method or medium used, and regardless of how the Work is to be submitted to You, including without limitation, all copyright and other intellectual property rights therein or thereto, as well as all original material(s) created by me which is (are) incorporated therein, including without limitation, all written, sketched, painted, photographed, electronic visual and/or written material, artwork, literary material, etc. contained therein (the "Work").
I grant You the permission to freely utilize my Work, my name, and biographical information, and link to my web site and/or social networking page if applicable, and that I am not a minor and am able to enter into such agreements legally, to promote my Work as is or for promotion of Labyrinth of Arts Ltd. Co. and/or its content as is or may be necessary, but not limited to, marketing purposes and/or other business purposes.
Should I become aware of additional rights or benefits to me: I understand and agree that all rights I may have, as example, under Section 1542 of the California Civil Code and any similar law of any state or U.S. territory, any similar federal or foreign law, or any similar common law or principle of similar effect, are hereby expressly waived. I acknowledge and understand that said section reads as follows:
"A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR."
I acknowledge that I may hereafter discover claims in addition to the ones released in this document, and I hereby expressly release You from any such unknown and/or unsuspected claims.
I hereby release, discharge, and hold harmless You and Your affiliates, employees, officers, principals and directors, Your licensees, grantees, successors and assignees, their respective parent, associates, subsidiary and/or affiliated entities, and the respective officers, directors, employees, and representatives of any of the foregoing (collectively "Releasees") from and against any and all claims, whether at law or in equity, that I may have at any time (whether or not I am aware of any such claims), including without limitation, claims for breach of contract, infliction of emotional distress, defamation, false light, common law or statutory misappropriation, invasion or other violations of any actual or purported right of privacy and/or publicity, and claims under equivalent federal or state laws arising from my submission of the Work to You and the pursuit/exploitation of any or all of the rights granted to You hereunder, including, without limitation, the rights of the Work, the Commercial Rights and the Personal Rights; these terms are herein known collectively as the "Released Claims." The Released Claims shall include, without limitation, any claim relating to, arising from or in connection with: (i) any use, pursuit/exploitation or exercise of any right(s) granted hereunder (ii) any contest and/or the operation and/or procedures implemented in connection with any such contest, including without limitation, contest rules, voting procedures, contestant and voter eligibility, determinations of the judges, audiences, and/or producers, selection of winners, the awarding of any prize, disqualification decisions, and prior or disparate exposure of the Work, or other Works competing for any award or prize, and any and all matters in connection with any contest or any voluntarily submitted work not otherwise specified for contest entry; (iii) the public dissemination and/or distribution of the Work including, without limitation, any claim resulting from the piracy or other unauthorized distribution, duplication, and/or display of the Work by third parties; (iv) the loss of the Work and/or the failure of the Work to be properly or timely displayed to the public for any reason including, without limitation, whether as a result of technical difficulties, equipment failure, inadequate capacity, system overload, excess traffic, human error, malicious actions or for any reason whatsoever (v) any interruption in services provided by and/or for Labyrinth of Arts; and/or (vi) the negation or execution of this agreement, including but not limited to, any claims based upon allegations of duress, undue influence or the like.
I certify, represent, and warrant that I am the sole original and exclusive producer, artist, and/or creator and owner of said Work, that I have the full right and authority to enter into this agreement and to grant all rights granted herein, that I have not previously submitted Work for commercial gain, or assigned rights, titles, ownership, etc. to a third party. I further represent and agree that from the date of my submission of the Work to You, I have not, and shall not, ever submit, attempt to grant any rights in or to the Work, to any party, including but not limited to, any media entity, web site, or internet provider, except by private means to my family and/or friends, solely for their own private use and with no rights granted to the Work. I agree that I have not and will not take any action that will impair the rights granted to You. I acknowledge and agree that You may at any time eliminate or disqualify any Work from any contest or use based on rights previously granted or prior exhibition.
I further agree to execute any additional documents which You may from time to time submit to me to evidence, establish, maintain, protect, enforce, or defend Your rights.
Labyrinth of Arts Ltd. Co. will meet all reasonable expectations to protect its rights, and to protect Work appearing in Labyrinth of Arts such that Work will not be stolen or pirated by third parties, but we recognize that current existing technologies, and emerging technologies, may make such protections difficult or impossible. We will be held harmless, and not liable, for any and all types of damages claimed or documented which might be incurred by theft and/or pirating of materials, without consent, and unlawfully, taken from Labyrinth of Arts Ltd. Co.
This agreement constitutes the entire understanding between Labyrinth of Arts and the Artist, and supersedes all prior negotiations, understandings, and agreements, whether written or oral, pertaining hereto and cannot be modified except in writing by Labyrinth of Arts and the Artist. Any waiver of any term of this agreement in a particular instance shall not be a waiver of such term for the future. In the event that any paragraph or provision is deleted from this agreement, is determined to be ineffective or is limited in any manner for any reason, such deletion, determination, and/or limitation shall have no effect upon the remaining terms and conditions of this agreement, all of which other terms and conditions shall remain in full force and effect. This agreement may be executed in multiple copies, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, and all of which, when properly executed, shall be equivalent to the original.
I understand and am bound by all the terms contained in this agreement. Furthermore, I herby certify, represent, and warrant that the information provided on this form is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and by attaching the signature, or its herein agreed to equivalent, I acknowledge, agree, and understand that the typed electronic signature shall have the same legal effect as an original signature and may be accepted as equivalent to my original signature pursuant to the Oklahoma Uniform Electronic Transactions Act, Title 12A Okla. Statutes Section 15-101, et seq.
UNDER 18 years old
I ACCEPTED the terms and conditions below
I represent and warrant that I am either: (i) the parent (with sole or shared custody, as applicable) or (ii) the legal guardian of the minor child (the "Minor") whose name appears above and that I have the legal capacity to enter into irrevocable, binding agreements on behalf of the Minor. The Minor and I, both individually, and, additionally, I, on behalf of the Minor and as the Minor's parent or legal guardian, agree to be bound by all of the provisions of this agreement. As a material part of the consideration inducing You to enter into the foregoing agreement with Minor for use of the Work and the possible benefits arising therefrom, I do hereby: ratify and approve each and all of the terms, conditions, rights, indemnities, releases and obligations contained in the agreement; agree to attempt to secure and to do nothing directly or indirectly to hinder or prevent the full participation thereof by the Minor; consent to the use of Minor's Work, as provided in the agreement, in and in connection with the production, distribution, exhibition, and promotion of the Work, in conjunction with Labyrinth of Arts; and irrevocably guarantee and warrant that Minor will not disaffirm or disavow the agreement on the grounds that Minor is a minor at the date of the execution thereof, or on any other similar grounds.
This guarantee shall be applicable as well to any modification, amendment, extension, renewal or substitution of the agreement, and to the agreement as modified by any waiver. If Labyrinth of Arts Ltd. Co. elects to seek Court approval of this agreement, I, in consideration of the execution of the agreement by Labyrinth of Arts Ltd. Co., further agree to cooperate with Labyrinth of Arts Ltd. Co. to secure the approval, by a Court of competent jurisdiction, of the agreement. I agree to indemnify and hold the Releasees (as defined in the agreement) harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, costs or expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees which may arise from the breach or alleged breach by Minor or me of the foregoing.
