I {Real Name}, known as {Forum Nickname} on the Depthstrike Entertainment forums
at http://forums.depthstrike.com hereby grant my consent to Depthstrike Entertainment 
to distribute my works, limited to those posted directly in threads on the Depthstrike
Entertainment forums, in forms other than the electronic media that the Depthstrike
Entertainment forums currently distributes in.

I understand that my rights to my works are restricted insofar as to not permit another
organization exclusive distribution rights to works which I have granted Depthstrike
Entertainment extended distribution rights AND Depthstrike Entertainment has begun
distribution of a given work in another format. It is my responsibility to verify with
an authorized Depthstrike Entertainment Representative (A list of current representatives
can be found at http://wiki.depthstrike.com/index.php/DSE:Authorized_Representatives )
that a given work has not begun distribution in a potentially conflicting form when
granting exclusive distribution rights to another organization. I assume any and all
liability in copyright and distribution rights conflicts if I fail to contact Depthstrike
Entertainment before exclusive rights are granted.

I understant that I may revoke my consent for this extension of copyright on any of my
works that have not been published in another media at any time by following the Revoke
Consent procedures on the Depthstrike Entertainment FanFiction Copyright Consent Procedures
page at: http://wiki.depthstrike.com/index.php/DSE:FanFiction:Policies_and_Procedures:Copyright_Consent#Revoke_Consent

I also understand that I accept full liability in cases of reported and confirmed
copyright violations, as I have violated Depthstrike Entertainment FanFiction forum policies.

to distribute my works, limited to those posted directly in threads on the Depthstrike
Entertainment forums, in forms other than the electronic media that the Depthstrike
Entertainment forums currently distributes in.

I understand that works already distributed in other media cannot be revoked, and permit
those copies of my works already distributed to remain where they are. Future distribution
of my works that have been previously published by Depthstrike Entertainment are limited
to the current print run (if a print run is currently in progress) and previous print runs.
