All Rights granted to us pursuant to this Agreement are irrevocable and vest immediately upon publication of your Content on The Minds Journal. You retain ownership of the copyright in your Content, subject to the rights granted to us in this Agreement. If you decide to republish your Content elsewhere, you agree to include the following disclosure: “Previously published by The Minds Journal at www.themindsjournal.com.”

2. You should not provide us with any Content that is private, infringing of someone else’s intellectual property rights, or defamatory.

Anything posted on The Minds Journal will be available to anyone on the Internet. You are solely responsible for any legal or other repercussions that occur as a result of your Content posted on The Minds Journal. We assume no responsibility or liability which may arise from your Content.
