Terms of Use

Last updated: December 1, 2023

Welcome to Alias - Currently in Beta, where we focus on onboarding Artists.

Thank you for choosing Alias Platform, the innovative online platform that empowers artists with generative Artificial Intelligence. Alias is a place for creators to transform their real world artistic expression into unique, generative AI models—each known as an "Alias."

Artists can create one or more Alias(es), with the intent of using them for themself to improve their creativity, or to allow others use it/them.

Creating an Alias is free.

By accessing our website, whether you are an Artist or a Platform-User (‘You’), You agree to these Terms of Use (hereafter referred to as the ‘Terms’ or ‘Terms of Use’) and commit to being bound by them, along with our Privacy Policy, our Licensing terms including the Alias Licensing terms and the Artist to Platform-User License, guidelines, and policies made available by us from time to time, all of which are incorporated herein by reference.

[Please note that the current version of the platform is a Beta version - some of the provisions of those Terms are not yet applicable].

SUMMARY:

If you are an artist who's come to Alias.studio to create your Alias(es), you need to respect the legal rules and policies that apply to You. You must own the intellectual property rights to the Content you upload on the Platform to create one or more Alias(es). Your Content must comply with all applicable laws (in particular, it must not harm third parties or go counter to public order). You enter into a Licensing Agreement with us to train your Alias(es) on your Content and to publish it on the Platform. Finally, we will take a 10% commission on the price of your sales in return for our Services.

[Not applicable under Beta version] If you are a Platform-User who has come to Alias.studio to use Alias(es), you must also respect the legal rules and policies. In particular, you agree:
  • not to infringe the rights of the Alias owner. Thus, you must not use Generated Output in ways that would violate copyright or associated rights..
  • You also commit to respect the Licensing Terms associated with the Purchase of the Generated Output. Thus, You must not use Generated Output for any other purpose than the one you Purchased it.
  • You cannot claim to be the author of the Generated Output or that it is human-generated only. You must always credit the Artist and Alias.

ALIAS PLATFORM - PURPOSE AND SERVICES

3.1. Purpose of Alias

Alias platform serves as a collaborative ecosystem where artists can leverage AI to extend the reach and application of their Content, transforming their artistic works or own aesthetics into dynamic and generative AI models—hereinafter referred to as ‘Aliases’.

3.2. Services Provided

Alias offers a suite of services designed to facilitate the creation, publication, and monetization of Aliases. The services (“Services”) include but are not limited to the following:
  • Creation of Alias(es): Artists can upload their Content to the Alias Platform, which will be used to iterate and train generative AI model(s) with our AI training gym, to create their Alias(es). The platform is built to assist the Artists in the process of creating Alias(es), giving them best practices and tutorials in addition to our iterative AI training gym. Only Aliases approved by the artists are published on the platform.Each Alias can be published in ‘contact me’ mode, or for selected purposes mode [please note that all of those modes might not be applicable at the Beta stage]. Each Alias is a unique generative AI model that represents part of the artist's aesthetic and creative vision. Artists can create multiple Aliases. For example, an Artist can create one Alias per period of his/her life, or per mood.
    • ‘Contact me’ mode: if the Artist selects this option, the Alias in consideration will be - by default - only accessible for image generation on the Alias Platform, but for no other purpose. The Artist can on a case-by-case basis decide to allow for certain usages of generated images after being reached out to by the Platform-User and agreeing to this specific use-case and agreeing to legal and financial terms.
    • Selected purposes mode: if the Artist does not select the contact me mode, the Alias will be published under the terms and conditions the Artists defines, allowing for smart contracting with the Platform-Users whenever they want to purchase certain usages rights. The different options of usages rights are detailed on the Alias Platform and in the Artist to Platform-User License.
  • Licensing Framework: The Alias platform provides a structured framework through which artists can set forth the terms under which Platform-Users can interact with their Alias(es). By default, the Artist consents to the publication of his/her Alias under the Licensing Terms described in the section 4. Customization will be made via the options offered to the Artist when creating the Alias, which include:
    [please note that all of those modes might not be applicable at the Beta stage]
    • Selecting the ‘contact me’ option, which would set up the published Alias Generating Output that would never be usable before obtaining the prior consent of the Artist for a defined use-case.
    • Defining the scope of use for the Generated Outputs, such as whether they can be used for television broadcast, social media content, commercial advertising, or free-to-use applications.
    • Defining the duration of the Licensing Framework Artists agree to for each specific usage.
    • Defining the prices associated with each usage.
The selected choices will be reflected in the Legal Tech technical infrastructure and embedded in the License NFT associated with each Generated Output Purchased.
  • Marketplace Transaction Facilitation: Alias acts as an intermediary by hosting a marketplace where users can Purchase License NFT(s) to acquire the rights to use Generated Output according to the conditions associated with these tokens. We facilitate these transactions and provide the legal and commercial terms set by the artist. Alias platform will make available those terms in a human readable format before the approval of each transaction.
  • Issuance of rights certificate: [this is not applicable at the Beta stage]
  • Royalty Management: The platform manages the calculation and distribution of royalties to artists based on the usage of their Aliases by Platform-Users, in accordance with the established commercial terms. The platform guarantees that a share of credits used for the generation of images will retribute the creator of the Alias. Moreover, published creations will be recorded on a blockchain in order to be managed through our Legal Tech (based on the Remix NFT framework). Our Legal Tech ensures an immutable trace between the Generated Output and the Aliases used for its creation. In the event of a secondary sale of the Generated Output on a blockchain marketplace, the contract ensures that royalties will flow back to the Artists.
  • Community and Support: Alias provides a community space for artists and users to collaborate, share insights, and offer support. Currently, this community space may be a Discord or a Signal channel. In both cases, the access to those community spaces is governed by the terms and conditions of those applications.
  • Platform-User Experience: Platform-Users can browse and interact with a diverse catalog of Aliases. Through our interface, Platform-Users can discover Aliases, generate Generated Output, and utilize the Generated Output in line with our Licensing Terms. To benefit from the Licensing terms, they have to acquire the License NFT associated with the uses of the Generated Output they are interested in. A certificate can be provided by Alias as per the ‘Issuance of rights certificate’ section.
  • Commitment to Innovation and Legal Compliance: Alias is committed to ongoing innovation, ensuring that our platform remains at the forefront of the intersection between art and AI technology. As a legaltech, we are also dedicated to operating in line with industry best practices to protect the rights and interests of artists and users alike. We will then maintain our Terms of Use to ensure to offer You the very best in legal tech.

The terms of this Exhibit A are in addition to the terms of use. If the terms of this Exhibit A contradict any terms contained in the Terms of Use, then these terms shall prevail if you access the Services via an API.

a.. API Specific definitions

The section Definitions of the Terms of Use is completed with the following:
  • "API documentation" refers to the written material or resources that explain how to effectively use and integrate with an Application Programming Interface (API). This documentation - which may be provided by Alias in a separated and confidential document - would serve as a comprehensive guide, providing all the necessary information for developers and users to understand and work with the API.
  • "Third-Party" connector refers to a third party that has integrated our service into their offerings via our API.
  • "API artists and platform-users" refers to artists and platform users who access or interact with our services through a third party that has integrated our service into their offerings via our API. These users may be subject to additional terms and conditions set forth by the third party, in addition to our ToU.

Grant of access to API - We grant the third party connector a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to access and use our Application Programming Interface (API) subject to the terms and conditions outlined in this Terms of Use (ToU). This access is granted solely for the purpose of developing, testing, and maintaining integrations with your applications and services.

API Key: To access the API, the third party connector may be required to obtain an API key or token. This key must be kept confidential and not shared with unauthorized API artists and platform users. The key represents the third party connector identity and authorization to access the API and misuse may result in termination of access.

The section ‘Usage restrictions’ is completed as follows: If the third party connector connects to Alias Platform via an API, in addition to the General usage restrictions in the Terms of Use, the third party connector may not buy, sell, or transfer API keys without our prior consent.

Fees and Payment Terms: Payment terms for direct users of the service might differ from those accessing your services via the API, particularly if the API usage is metered or has different pricing models.

Data Privacy and Security: Direct users and API users might interact with data differently. For example, data privacy terms for API users might need to address data handling in third-party systems.

User-Generated Content: If the third party connector service involves user-generated content, the terms for how this content is handled, displayed, or moderated might differ for API users.

Intellectual Property Rights: There might be different considerations for intellectual property when accessing services through an API, especially regarding data retrieved and how it can be used.

Modifications to the Service: How modifications to the service affect users might differ between direct users and those accessing via the API, especially if API changes require users to update their own integrations.

API Modifications: We reserve the right to modify or discontinue the API (or any part or feature thereof) at any time without notice. The third party connector acknowledges that such changes may require you to make substantial changes to its integration at your its cost.

Data Use and Privacy: Any personal data the third party connector accesses through the API must be handled in accordance with our Privacy section and applicable data protection laws. The third party connector is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of any data you retrieve through the API and for all activities that occur under your account.
