    Hey guys-

    I looked in the FAQ about what rights WD will claim on the winning entries. Its it first world rights or something else?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks-

    ===========

    WD rules for the contest should spell out what rights they take.
    Some contests take all rights for ever. I dont think WD does that but read the rules to be sure.
