For example, without the right to modify your Materials, Myparish would not be able to digitally compress music files that you or other Members submit or otherwise format Materials to satisfy technical requirements, and without the right to publicly perform Materials, Myparish could not allow users and Members to listen to music posted by Members. The license you grant to Myparish is non-exclusive (meaning you are free to license your Materials to anyone else in addition to Myparish), fully-paid and royalty-free (meaning that Myparish is not required to pay you for the use on the Myparish Service of the Materials that you post), sub licensable (so that Myparish is able to use its affiliates and subcontractors such as Internet and WAP content delivery networks to provide the Myparish Service), and worldwide (because the Internet and the Myparish Service are global in reach). This license will terminate at the time you remove your Materials from the Myparish Service, except that you agree that the license will continue solely with respect to other Members' continued use of your Materials that are not music or videos (i.e. photos or skins); provided, however if you remove any of the Materials from the Myparish Service, Myparish reserves the right to remove all of your Materials from other Member's pages. The license does not grant Myparish the right to sell your Materials You represent and warrant that: (i) you own the Materials posted by you on or through the Myparish Service or otherwise have the right to grant the license set forth in this section, and (ii) the posting of your Materials on or through the Myparish Service does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights or any other rights of any person. You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owing any person by reason of any Materials posted by you to or through the Myparish Service. The hosting of certain items that you post, such as video, may require your agreement to a separate license agreement or terms of use.
