Question re: the New Blood Contest

The New Blood Contest - looks great! But I'm trying to get an answer to a "Terms and Conditions" question before submitting - hopefully for the early bird. And darn it, there doesn't seem to be an "ask the question" link anywhere on that page. (Either that, or I'm blind. Which is possible, too.) Understandably, there's an "I agree to the terms and conditions of Stage 32" check box on the submission page. But if you go to Stage 32's Terms and Conditions, there's various text - excerpted below. Knowing how such legalese works, I'm sure that it's meant to only apply to posts, comments, etc. But it could be interpreted to include submitted scripts. So, can anyone confirm that the New Blood contest submissions remain the sole ownership of the writers, with no rights conferred to Stage 32? Thx in advance for any info... :) ****** "Content" shall mean text, photographic works, sound recordings, music, audio works, videos, Audiovisual Works, audiovisual combinations, haptic works, software, scripts, graphics, interactive features, and other materials that may accessed in, at, on, from, or through, the Website, or via the Service.

Have no fear! New Blood contest submissions remain the sole ownership of the writer :)

Julie - thanks!! I figured as much. But legalese can always be such a challenge to wade through! :)))
