IP Policy

This AEV Intellectual Property and DMCA Policy (this “Policy”) sets forth additional requirements, guidelines, rights, and licenses with regard to AEV’s intellectual property and the intellectual property of others. This Policy also applies to AEV licensees, developers, Members, customers, and other parties wishing to use our intellectual property. This Policy forms part of the Terms of Service and any capitalized terms used, but not defined here, have the meanings assigned to such terms in the Terms of Service.

AEV Intellectual Property

AEV respects the intellectual property rights of others, and we ask our users to do the same. Each user is responsible for ensuring that their User Content does not infringe any third party’s copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property rights. While we appreciate your enthusiasm for the AEV brand, the AEV Service, our instructors, and community, we ask that you respect our intellectual property rights and adhere to this Policy and the Terms of Service, including Section 'Intellectual Property Acknowledgement'.

As between you and AEV, AEV owns the AEV Service, the Content, Trademarks (as defined below), copyrights, patents, and any other audio-visual or static content, photographs, audio, images, illustrations, graphics, software, features, code, data, materials, and information displayed on or otherwise made available through the AEV Service, other than content that has been licensed to us by third parties (collectively, “AEV IP”). This includes all intellectual property and proprietary rights in and to such AEV IP. As a reminder, the AEV Service is only for your personal, non-commercial use.

The AEV name, logos and affiliated properties, designs, trademarks, service marks, trade names, and trade dress (collectively, “Trademarks”) are the exclusive property of AEV Studios and/or its affiliates, whether registered or unregistered, and may not be used in connection with any product or service that is not ours, or in any manner that is likely to cause confusion as to our endorsement, affiliation or sponsorship of any person, product or service. Nothing contained on the AEV Service or in this Policy should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel or otherwise, any license or right to use any of our Trademarks or other intellectual property without our express prior written consent.

Any other trademarks appearing on the AEV Service are trademarks of their respective owners. Our partners or service providers may also have additional proprietary rights in the content that they make available through the AEV Service. All rights not expressly granted in this Policy or the Terms of Service ;are reserved.

Authorized Use of AEV Intellectual Property

a) AEV Content and Trademarks. Only AEV and its authorized licensees may use the Content and/or Trademarks in advertising, promotional, and marketing assets or materials or for any other commercial purpose.

Any permitted use must at all times be made in accordance with the agreement between licensee and AEV and must adhere to the following requirements:

  • The Content and/or Trademarks are not modified or combined with other marks in any way, including, but not limited to changing the color, ratio, audio, audio-visual, font, or materials captured or contained therein.
  • Include attributions as required by AEV.
  • Such use presents AEV, the Content, and our products, services, and brand in a favorable light.
  • The Trademarks or AEV name are not part of the service or product name or domain names or websites, nor are any variations, abbreviations, or formative uses, phonetic equivalent, or foreign language translations.
  • The “AEV” word mark appears less prominently than the name of your service or product.
  • Any reference to AEV and/or the Content or our services and products must not appear to endorse, sponsor, show an affiliation with or association between AEV and/or the Content or our services and products and you or your products and services.

Any unauthorized use of our Trademarks or Content is strictly prohibited.

b) Compatibility. Licensees may use the “AEV” word mark solely for referential purposes on packaging or materials to state that their service or product may be used with the AEV Service or our products; provided that they comply with the requirements of part (a) above and the following requirements:

  • Compatibility is not dependent upon your access to the AEV Service or our API and does not violate the Terms of Service.
  • The service or product may, in fact, be used with or is compatible with the AEV Service or our products.

c) Merchandise/Goods. You may not produce, manufacture or sell merchandise, products, or services incorporating any AEV Trademarks. Examples include but are not limited to t-shirts, jackets, mugs, bags, and flags.

d) Depictions of AEV Products and/or Services. AEV logos, company names, product names, or images of AEV products, or user interfaces must not be used in marketing, promotional or advertising materials as such use may create the perception that AEV endorses, sponsors, or is affiliated or associated with the product, service or promotion. AEV does not support the imitation of distinctive AEV products, web design, logos, packaging, or typefaces.

e) Rules for Referencing AEV Products and Services. Please remember that any use of the Trademarks should be used as an adjective (e.g., the AEV service, a AEV dance class) not as a noun or gerund (e.g., “AEVing”).
