By accepting an invitation to a Project from an Administrator, you agree to be bound by the license in this Section.
1.2.8 DMCA Policy. Mosaic respects the intellectual property of others and takes the protection of
intellectual property very seriously, and we ask you to do the same. Infringing activity will not be
tolerated on or through the Mosaic Services. Mosaic’s intellectual property policy is to

(ii) remove any Project Content uploaded to the Mosaic Services by “repeat infringers.” Mosaic considers a “repeat infringer” to be any user that has uploaded Project Content or Creative Ideas (as defined below) to or through the Mosaic Services and for whom Mosaic has received more than two takedown notices compliant with 17 U.S.C. § 512 with respect to such Project Content or Creative Ideas.

1.11.1 Mandatory Arbitration. Please read this carefully. YOU AND MOSAIC AND EACH OF OUR RESPECTIVE CORPORATE PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, PREDECESSORS IN INTEREST, SUCCESSORS, PERMITTED ASSIGNS, AND ANY OTHER PARTIES ON WHOSE BEHALF YOU ARE ACCESSING THE MOSAIC SERVICE AGREE TO ARBITRATION (EXCEPT FOR MATTERS THAT MAY BE TAKEN TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT), AS THE EXCLUSIVE FORM OF DISPUTE RESOLUTION EXCEPT AS PROVIDED FOR BELOW, FOR ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE SERVICE. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Please visit www.adr.org for more information about arbitration.
Commencing Arbitration. A party intending to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by an international courier with a tracking mechanism, a written notice of intent to arbitrate (a “Notice”), or, in the absence of a mailing address Mosaic provides to you, via any other method available to Mosaic, including via e-mail. The Notice to Mosaic should be addressed to MosaicApp Inc, 58 West 40th Street, 5th Floor New York, NY 10018, Attn: Chief Executive Officer (the “Arbitration Notice Address”). The Notice must (A) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (B) set forth the specific relief sought (the “Demand”). If you and Mosaic do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Mosaic may commence an arbitration proceeding as set forth below or file a claim in small claims court. THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION (“AAA”) WILL ADMINISTER THE ARBITRATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES AND THE SUPPLEMENTARY PROCEDURES FOR CONSUMER RELATED DISPUTES (THE “Rules”), AS MODIFIED BY THESE TERMS. The Rules and AAA forms are available online at http://www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee to commence an arbitration against Mosaic, then Mosaic will promptly reimburse you for your confirmed payment of the filing fee upon Mosaic’s receipt of Notice at the Arbitration Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration along with a receipt evidencing payment of the filing fee, unless your Demand is equal to or greater than $1,000 or was filed in bad faith, in which case you are solely responsible for the payment of the filing fee.
1.11.2 Proceeding. The arbitration will be in English. A single independent and impartial arbitrator with his or her primary place of business in New York, New York will be appointed pursuant to the Rules, as modified herein. You and Mosaic agree to comply with the following rules, which are intended to streamline the dispute resolution process and reduce the costs and burdens on the parties: (A) arbitration will only be conducted if the damages sought exceed $75,000; (B) the arbitration will be conducted online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (C) the arbitration will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the parties; and (D) any judgment on the award the arbitrator renders may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
1.11.3 No Class Actions. YOU AND MOSAIC AGREE THAT YOU AND MOSAIC MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. FURTHER, YOU AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE PROCEEDINGS OF MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND THAT IF THIS SPECIFIC PROVISO IS FOUND TO BE UNENFORCEABLE, THEN THE ENTIRETY OF THIS MANDATORY ARBITRATION SECTION WILL BE NULL AND VOID.
1.11.4 Decision. Barring extraordinary circumstances, the arbitrator will issue his or her decision within 120 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this time limit for an additional 30 days in the interests of justice. All arbitration proceedings will be closed to the public and confidential, and all records relating thereto will be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the arbitration award. The award of the arbitrator will be in writing and will include a statement setting forth the reasons for the disposition of any claim. The arbitrator will apply the laws of the State of New York in conducting the arbitration. You acknowledge that these terms and your use of the Mosaic Services evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. The United States Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to the Mandatory Arbitration clause in these Terms.
1.11.5 Equitable Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section do not apply to any claim in which either party seeks equitable relief to protect such party’s copyrights, trademarks, or patents. You acknowledge that, in the event Mosaic or a third party breaches these Terms, the damage or harm, if any, caused to you will not entitle you to seek injunctive or other equitable relief against Mosaic, and your only remedy will be for monetary damages, subject to the limitations of liability set forth in these Terms.
1.11.6 Claims. You and Mosaic agree that, notwithstanding any other rights the party may have under law or equity, any cause of action arising out of or related to these Terms or the Mosaic Services, excluding a claim for indemnification, must commence within one year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
1.11.7 All claims you bring against Mosaic must be resolved in accordance with this Section. All claims filed or brought contrary to this Section will be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to this Section, Mosaic may recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to $5,000, provided that Mosaic has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
1.11.8 In the event that Mosaic makes any future change to the Mandatory Arbitration provision (other than a change to Mosaic’s Arbitration Notice Address), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) days of the change to Mosaic’s Arbitration Notice Address, in which case your account with Mosaic and your license to use the Mosaic Services will terminate immediately, and this Section, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject, will survive the termination of these Terms.
1.11.9 If only Section1.11.4 or the entirety of this Section 1.11 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 1.11 will be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 1.12 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
The laws of the State of New York, excluding its conflicts of law rules, govern these Terms and your use of
the Service. Your use of the Mosaic Services may also be subject to other local, state, national, or
international laws. To the extent that any action relating to any dispute hereunder is permitted to be
brought in a court of law, such action will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and
federal courts located in New York County, New York, and you hereby irrevocably submit to personal
jurisdiction in such courts, and waive any defense of inconvenient forum.
