2. By submitting user content to this site, you represent and warrant that such content is your original creation and that it does not defame, infringe or otherwise violate the rights of any third party or any applicable law or regulation. You further represent and warrant that you have secured the requisite written consent from any third party referenced, pictured or otherwise embodied in your user content (including but not limited to any recognizable person and any trademarks, logos or copyrightable works) to the extent necessary to grant Getty Images the license rights set forth below. If requested by Getty Images, you agree to provide a written legal release for such third party consents in a form satisfactory to Getty Images.

3.
