5. Users’ Content and Third Parties’ Rights

Registered Users (“Author”) can upload their own content (material in the form of texts and images, and photos, hereinafter referred to as “Content”) only if such content are their own work or if they hold the relative copyright and entitlement to share and edit said content. The Author guarantees that content uploaded to the website is his/her original creative work and that the upload does not constitute plagiarism, even in part, of third party works.
In particular, the Author guarantees that Uploads do not plagiarise or infringe third party rights over photographs or videos or relative to objects depicted in photographs or videos and the rights relating to copyright and trademarks and that any persons represented and identifiable in the photographs uploaded agree without reservation to their publication. Otherwise all such likenesses must be made anonymous.
Likewise, the Author declares and guarantees that the upload and everything reproduced therein does not infringe intellectual property rights or in any case exclusive third party rights, including picture rights and personality rights, for which he/she has in any case received complete and unlimited authorisation from the possible owners. The Author therefore undertakes to keep Moleskine Srl exempt from any harmful consequence or claim by third parties that may arise as a result of the above declaration by the Author being untrue.
For the purposes of the upload to the website, the Author, as copyright owner of the upload, grants to Moleskine Srl, absolutely free of charge, without territorial or time limits, exercise of all rights of economic use resulting from copyright of the upload, among which, by way of example, the rights to publication of the upload in any way and in any form – in particular, as part of the website www.mymoleskine.com within editorial publications, magazines and other communication media – as well as the right to make the content and the upload publicly accessible also from mobile devices such as mobile phones, iPods, iPhones, etc., the right to reproduction, performance and distribution, broadcasting, through any medium and on any support of the upload, performance in public, making available to the public in any form and manner, displaying and exhibiting the upload, use of the upload in the context of advertising promotions, the right to make spin-off works and the right to translation. Transfer is regulated by Italian copyright law (Act no. 633/1941).
The upload of images is not moderated by Moleskine Srl, which does, however, reserve the right to proceed at any time to remove images or videos uploaded on the website, independently or on request of third parties, as well as the Legal Authorities, in the event of objections relating to the legality or legitimacy of their publication.
Content entered by Authors reflect solely their personal point of view and not the viewpoint of Moleskine. Moleskine reserves the right to remove from the website any Content, with particular reference to Content that is posted in violation of the above-mentioned rules or that have given rise to a dispute with regard also only to the presumed infringement of third party rights, without previously consulting the Author in question.
If the presence of illegal Content is detected or is in violation of third party rights, Users may report it to Moleskine using the appropriate function at the foot of each Content or by contacting Moleskine by sending an e-mail to privacy@moleskine.com. Because of the automatic publication of the such Content, Moleskine emphasises that it declines all liability, rejecting liability also in the event of late removal of such content or failure to remove it, and also rejects any inference of its implicit endorsement of such illegal content or content in violation of third party rights.
In principle, Authors are not entitled to request removal from the website of the Content entered by them, and termination of registration does not affect Moleskine’s right to use the Content entered by the Author. If necessary, Content will be removed in accordance with current legal provisions or at the request of the appropriate Authorities.
