How can Hypios CI guarantee that my intellectual property will be protected?

For a full description of your intellectual property rights, please refer to the Hypios CI Solver Terms. Throughout the entire solving process, Solvers retain original ownership of their solution until one is chosen by the Seeker. If a solution is selected, the Seeker pays the agreed price to purchase all intellectual property rights from the Solver to use the solution. If a solution is not selected, Hypios CI reserves the right to keep it in our database in the event that another Seeker becomes interested in purchasing a solution for a similar problem. However, we protect the privacy of the Solver and we do not, under any circumstances, allow for the distribution, use, or unauthorized sale without prior consent. If an offer for a previously submitted solution is made, the owner will be fully compensated.
