Each party will indemnify and hold the other party and its assigns harmless from any and all liabilities, claims, demands, losses, expenses, and damages (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) in connection with any breach or alleged breach of this Agreement, including all claims by third parties which are inconsistent with any of the warranties, representations, or agreements made in this Agreement.

SUBMISSIONS

Works created with Holly+ and submitted via this auction site will be processed via Zora’s auction model and go through a selective Holly+ DAO approval process. Works submitted by You are subject to the Intellectual Property Rights discussed above.

Should the DAO approve the work, an NFT will be minted via Zora, with 50% of the initial sale shared with You, the creator of the new work. 40% of profits will be distributed amongst Holly+ DAO members, and 10% will go to Holly Herndon directly.

On additional sales via the secondary market, 10% of the sale price goes back to the original creator, You, which will be subject to the 50% / 40% / 10% profit model split mentioned above, with 50% of the 10% going to You, 40% to be distributed amongst Holly+ DAO members, and 10% will go to Holly Herndon directly.
