Made on Coboat

Turn your dream project into reality with 100 days of coworking, creative inspiration, and sailing the high seas.

6 months on Coboatprize pool

Turn your dream project into reality with 100 days of coworking, creative inspiration, and sailing the high seas.


Founded in 2015, Coboat is a coworking space on a catamaran with room for up to 20 digital nomads, entrepreneurs, founders, and freelancers.

Being fortunate enough to experience what it means to be a digital nomad, the Coboat founders have fallen in love with the ability to work from anywhere. This passion has brought them to create a way to help others experience the life of a digital nomad, and to make dreams come true in the process.

Coboat is not only a coworking space on the water. Coboat is the belief in a way of life that allows you to be the most productive and creative person possible, by surrounding yourself with like-minded people that inspire and support one another- in corners of the world that once upon a time seemed so distant.

To the founders, Coboat is more than a sailing business. It is an engagement to something that they love and that they want to share with others.

And of course, we at jovoto couldn’t be more proud to bring this opportunity to experience the dream life of a digital creative nomad to our creative community.

Please note: The winner of the community voting as well as the jury award are eligible for a chance to stay on the Coboat. Further details of the general conditions (timeframe, travel, visa and so forth) need to be arranged with Coboat directly. Hence there are many factors that need to be considered and planned, so the  confirmation of your stay on the Coboat will only be binding once a direct agreement with Coboat has been reached.


Coboat and jovoto are looking for the person with the best idea for a creative project, to give them the chance to bring the very first “Made on Coboat” success story to life. This is your once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience the life of a creative nomad, while making your dream project a reality.

Task Definition

If you had 100 days of inspiration, collaboration, and freedom on a coworking catamaran, what is the one dream project that you would work on? In other words, describe your dream project, be it a creative or business venture, that you have always wanted to work on but never had enough time for.

Target Group

You tell us: you get to pick what kind of target group your own project idea will focus on.


  • Motivating (engage your audience, help them understand why you and your project should win the chance to stay on the Coboat)
  • Positive (don’t be afraid to show passion)
  • Engaging (use this opportunity to engage with others in the creative community, be open to feedback, give back by leaving constructive comments on others’ ideas)
  • Descriptive (how much do you know already about your project)
  • Honest (how much of this project can you realistically achieve in 100 days on Coboat if you will get the chance to stay on the Coboat)

Mandatory requirements

A one-page summary with key information about your project.

Other than that, none! Feel free to use any medium needed to describe your project.

Required File Format

Please disclose as much information as you feel comfortable, in the format of your choice.


1. How much of my big idea do I need to share? To participate, you don’t need to disclose any secret business ideas, just share as much as you feel comfortable with.

2. What if my idea changes after I start working on Coboat? We understand sometimes that plans as well as ideas change. You don’t have to stick to the original idea as if it evolves and takes on new direction while you are working on it. The main thing is that your project starts to come to life!

3. If I win, when do I have to redeem my prize? The winner(s) are expected to travel on Coboat as soon as possible.

4. When do the prizes expire? December 2016.

5. What is included in the stay on Coboat? Your room and board (a bed, food, drinks) as well as satellite internet are covered in your prize.

6. Who covers additional travel costs (flights & ground transport to and from catamaran, visas, etc.)?  For all prizes, participants should be able to cover any additional costs themselves. Exceptions may be made for the jury prize winner (100 days) if the winner requires financial assistance. Please be ready to provide adequate information to support your request.

7. If I win, do I have to redeem my entire stay at once, or can I break up my prize into multiple, shorter stays? The jury prize winner is allowed to take only one break from coboat for a maximum period of 4 weeks, except in the case of emergencies of course.

8. Where will Coboat be next year? Our preliminary schedule will be published mid-August. We will sail between Thailand/Indonesia and the Mediterranean in 2016.

9. If I win, but my plans change, can I share my prize with someone else? No, sorry!

10. Can I bring necessary material, equipment for my project on board? Sure, if it fits in your travel bag. Camera, Laptop, even a typewriter would be totally OK. Or where you thinking of anything bigger than that?

11. What are the size-limitations for equipment? Space is limited aboard the catamaran, so please leave your hard-shell suitcases and trolley cases ashore. Dress is casual – so pack light.. and leave your suits and cocktail dresses behind! You’ll spend most of your time in shorts, t-shirts, swimwear.. and bare feet!

12. Does Coboat want me to share the status of my project on a regular basis once I am aboard? We invite you to use the collective brain trust of other Coboaters or communicate with the world outside the boat but don’t feel obligated to – just share as much as you feel comfortable with.

Halftime Feedback

Dear entrepreneurs of the seas!

Thanks a lot for all your innovative ideas so far! Today we sat down together with Coboat and the jury to discuss your ideas. Here are the most important points to keep in mind when submitting or developing an idea:

Keep it clear as water

It’s great that you explain your idea in detail by carefully writing it down in text form. When doing so, remember to keep it short and to the point and don’t forget to include your vision with your idea!  You know you’re on the right track if readers can understand your vision and idea within a couple of minutes.

Visualise your vision

After you have explained your idea clearly, don’t forget to add some strong  images that help explain your idea/vision.. Remember! Humans are visual beings and a great image that explains your idea will bring more attention to it and more understanding of it!

Make your idea tangible

Present your ideas in a way that it feels real and is easy to grasp! Make your idea contagious to the jury and others and help us understand the potential of your idea. Paint an image in the reader's head where they can see your idea in action!

Tell us about yourself

Being on a boat for 100 days requires a good group dynamic! Therefore the jury would like to know a bit about the person behind the idea. How are you as a person? How could you add to the team on the boat? What’s your professional background, interests, hobbies? What have you done within the field of your idea before? Feel free to be creative when presenting yourself and use video, your blog, twitter account, you name it! We have added an extra question on the idea form where you can add this information. Feel free to post relevant links there as well.

3 people will be invited to an interview

After the submission period is over the jury will sit together and evaluate all your ideas and choose 3 people to be invited to an interview (over skype or in person). Then they will pick one winner that will get to work on their idea on Coboat over 100 days.

Those are the tips, entrepreneurs! There are two weeks left and we’re all looking forward to see more of your innovative ideas!

All the best,

Wow this is such an interesting and extraordinary contest! Is it possible to submit an idea with a collaborator? or the prizes can't be awarded to teams?

Thanks Andra. The prize is only for one person, if you want you can book another ticket for your partner, or you can work remotely with them on board. :)

Hi guys!

I'm super excited to be the project guide for this project. Will be a pleasure to see your ideas set sail! For any questions or issues, please turn to me, I'm here to help. :)

All the best,


Looks like a requirement is to submit a one-pager. Attempted to do so as a simple .docx, but the file type isn't acceptable. Can totally upload as a different file type, but thought I'd let you guys know (prob a good call since .doc is awful).

Hi danny,

That's correct, a one-pager is required and I see that you have have uploaded that for your idea, great! We are working on getting .docx format to work as well so it's in the pipeline! Until then, pdf should be alright as well!

All the best,


Hi, my question is where is the boat starting the trip? and where it would be in the end of the 100 days?

Hi Gabriel!

If you check the Coboat website and scroll down to "Destinations" you will see where the boat will be when. So where it starts depends on when you start!

Here's the website:

Best, //Olof

My creative juices are flowing and my fingers anxious to tap my idea on the keyboard! The idea of a floating NextSpace is exciting! Anchors away!

Glad to hear kimaris! Looking forward to see your idea then. :)

All the best,


Hi guys,

The half time feedback is now up! Yesterday we sat down with Coboat and the jury and here above you can read the tips & tricks that will help you to optimise your ideas. Looking forward to see more of your innovative ideas take sail!

All the best,


This truly sounds like an amazing opportunity for myself! I am a videographer and video journalist and I have many ideas floating around my head! I'm sure I can think of a great idea! I cannot seem to find where I send my idea to?

Thanks, Aleks

Hi aleksyatskevich,

Glad to hear, looking forward to hear them! :) You can submit your idea by clicking "Submit idea" to the top right of this page. It's next to the "See all ideas" button! See it?

All the best,


Hi Olof,

The project terms are quite legalese. My submission would not be client-based, but an ongoing personal/collaborative art project. Do I retain copyright, ownership, artistic control and all future monetary profit? How long does jovoto retain any right stated in the project terms (e.g., merchandising rights)? Are the project terms specific to the coboat project, or are they the project terms you use for all your Crowdstorm projects? Thanks, in advance, for clarifying.


Dear Brian,

thanks for your question. This project is quiet different from the other projects on jovoto. Coboat is running the competition on the jovoto platform for the purpose of self-promotion and is not interested in licensing an idea submitted on the platform (the prizes do not include a license fee).

Therefore you retain the exclusive rights for your idea but transfer the following rights to jovoto and the client when submitting an idea:

When entering an idea into a project, jovoto may display, share and print it for presentational purposes. See point 7.2 in the terms of use:

7.2 Creatives uploading a work sample to their user profile grant to jovoto non-exclusive transferable rights, without restriction on time, space or content, to use the content to the extent required for the operation of the platform. In particular, the creative grants to jovoto the right to hold the work samples on the platform for access by third parties (making them available to the public) and to make any copies necessary for this purpose. The creative also grants to jovoto the right to edit the works in question in order to present them more favorably on the website.

When entering an idea into a project, the client may display, share an print it for presentational purposes as well. See point 4.1 in the project terms:

4.1 By participating in a project, the creative grants to the client the non-exclusive right of use, without restriction on content, time or space, to present his ideas and works as such outside of advertising campaigns or in order to promote the project, alone or together with the ideas and works of other creatives participating in the project, in any medium. Moreover, the creative grants to the client the right to use the ideas and works for the purpose of internal and external market research (…) This may require the distributing and making the ideas and works publicly accessible, limited to the aforementioned purposes.

The project terms we use here are the standard terms we use for all Crowdstorm projects. Please note that a direct agreement with Coboat will be reached with the winners of the community voting as well as the jury award.

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Olof

Hi Olof,

Thanks for your reply. I've exchanged some messages with James and Gerald of Coboat, and with Bastian of Jovoto. I'm not doubting the honesty and sincerity of anyone involved in regards to their stating that the creative retains all Intellectual Property rights. I would be, though, according to section 4 of the Project Terms, relinquishing licensing rights to every aspect of content I produced, in perpetuity. I won't go into detail, as all the info is in the Project Terms. I completely understand the need for Jovoto to be given permission to have access to and use the content it needs to operate the platform. I also believe the Coboat and Jovoto team when they say they have no intention to abrogate IP rights or claim licensing rights. But section 4 is extensive and comprehensive. It technically has me signing away all licensing rights to my Intellectual Property by submitting a project. So maintaining the IP rights becomes, essentially, moot.

I suspected that the boilerplate Jovoto Project Terms and Terms of Use were being used. As you state yourself, this is a completely different type of project than the normal Crowdstorming projects that Jovoto runs. I would submit, with all due respect, that given such, different Project Terms should have been created. Once again, I believe everyone at Coboat and Jovoto are acting in good faith. But as a longtime creative and artist, the way it stands, by submitting a project, I would essentially be relying on a handshake agreement in regards to licensing rights, which, I think, is problematic. I'm certainly no expert on IP rights, but maintaining them while signing away licensing rights strikes me as, ultimately, being, technically, the same thing and potentially ends with the same result. I've continued to work on a project submission throughout because what Coboat, through Jovoto, are offering is practically tailor-made for where I sit on a long-term, collaborative art project. It would potentially facilitate a profound next-step for me. Baked into the cake of my project is a desire to create long-term, collaborative artistic relationships that result in a creative endeavor from which all involved derive creative freedom as well as financial profit. The Project Terms would technically put that at jeopardy by having third parties retaining licensing rights.

Sorry about being such a pain in the butt about this. It's obviously something I'm concerned with and fired up about. Thanks again for your reply.


Cool project, sadly i need an army of developers for most of my ideas. So that's gonna be a problem on a boat. And the one that isn't will be hitting Indiegogo quite soon. Much luck to the people who can participate. could solve part of your problem:)

Haha thanks for the tip! Right now i am working with a small team, but it's growing so maybe i should search for some additional help!

Hi there,

I just wanted to remind you that tomorrow is the deadline for submissions so if you still have ideas that you haven't posted, now is time to do so! Or if you have ideas that might need some tweaking, make it happen!

24hours to go, gO GO!

Best, Olof

Hey Olof,

I just found out about this last night but I would really love to submit my idea! What is the exact time deadline for submissions? I'm in the UTC-08:00 Pacific time zone.

Hi Christine!

17:00 UTC+0200 is the deadline so still 6 hours to go, plenty of time! :)

Best, Olof

I hope that I submitted it correctly? It says to upload a one pager - but I answered all my one page answers in the questions that were asked in the form + Pictures. Do you need more? Thanks! Neha

That's enough eptutors, we get the idea! :)

Best, Olof

Hello! I am having troubles to submit my idea, I can't manage to edit the credits of the picture I use as cover pictures ( I changed it after submitting my idea, and now the credits are irrelevant). The website keeps returning me the answer that there is an error, whithout pointing out where. I would appreciate some help there! Thank you Alice

Hi AliceB,

I have sent you a PM! ;)

Best, Olof

Hi guys. I got some exciting news for you.

The jury has made it's decision!

A big round of applause for Stefan Bielski for his idea 55 minutes

Here's a quote from co-founder and jury member James Abbott about Stefan's idea: “55 Minutes is the meta idea made for Coboat – made on Coboat, that we wished for. Stefan embodies our philosophy of professional and personal growth through collaboration and learning from each other.”

Stefan will now get to spend 100 days on Coboat to work and play with visiting entrepreneurs to advance their projects and to create case studies for 55 Minutes products.

You can read the full announcement of the winner on the Coboat blog here

Great job everyone who participated in this project and a big congratulations to Stefan!

All the best, Olof

Hi all!

In case you missed it, I wanted to invite all you Coboat innovators, entrepreneurs, and creatives to another "future of" crowdstorm: "Looking ForeWork." We've partnered with WIRED, adidas, Cisco, Vitra and more to ask YOU about your wants, worries and vision for your future work. The crowdstorm runs to the end of January, and if you submit by tonight (00:00 CET 20th of December) you could earn a special surprise holiday award! Remember, you can submit a "seed" of an idea before it is fully developed!

Start envisioning your future and submit!

Just post beneath the Looking Forward brief or message me if you have any questions! :D

Best, Olof

Project terms

The following Project Terms are the legal basis for your participation in this particular project.

In §3 we define the rights that you pass on to jovoto when you submit an idea (for example, you may publish and share your idea on other websites or social media but ensure it is clear it is a submission created on jovoto).

In §4 we define the rights that you pass on to the client (for example, that the client is allowed to evaluate or review your ideas in order to help them make their decision).

In §5 you will find important points on what you will be held responsible for (like respecting copy rights and clearly marking all third party material in your submission).

In §6 you will find additional terms (for example that the winners are ligible for a chance on the Coboat and that the confirmation of your stay on the Coboat will only be binding once a direct agreement with Coboat has been reached.)

Project Terms for the "Made on Coboat" Public Project

1.    Scope

1.1    These project terms supplement the Terms of Use for creatives and apply to public projects in terms of section 3.1.1 of the Terms of Use. Definitions contained in the Terms of Use also apply to the context of these project terms. Public projects may be viewed by everyone. All registered creatives may submit ideas for such projects provided they accept these project terms.

1.2    By submitting an idea to the project, the creative accepts the terms of use and these project terms.

2.    Right to be Named as Author

By accepting these project terms and the terms of use, the creative waives any right to be named as author if the client wishes this when licensing the creative's idea. As long as the client does not purchase the idea, jovoto will ensure that the creative is named as author.

3.    Granting Rights of Use to jovoto


By submitting an idea to the project, the creative grants the rights of use listed in section 3 to jovoto.

3.1    Even when participating in a project or submitting an idea, the creative still retains the right, without restriction on content, time or space, to use his own idea for the purpose of self-promotion provided he observes the rights of third parties, in particular those of the client. This does not apply to the first six months following the end of the submission phase of a project. During this period, the creative is not permitted to use his idea in any other manner. The client's trademarks and other related rights may only be used if and when the client explicitly allows this for the performance of the competition. 

3.2    jovoto wishes to point out explicitly that participation in a project and/or submission of an idea does not confer on the creative any right to use material of jovoto or the client. In particular, participation in the project does not give the creative any right to use the logo or other materials belonging to the project sponsor (client) or to third parties. This does not apply in cases where the project terms or the project briefing call for other arrangements.

3.3    The creative submitting an idea to a project grants to jovoto non-exclusive transferable rights, without restriction on time, space or content, to use the idea, including associated creative works and any comments submitted therewith to the extent required for the operation of the platform. In particular, the creative grants to jovoto the right to make every comment and/or idea and the associated works on the platform accessible to third parties and to make any reproductions necessary for this purpose. The creative grants to jovoto the right to edit the works in question in order to present them more favorably on the website.

3.4    In addition, the creative grants to jovoto the right to make comments and/or the idea and the associated works publicly accessible for the purpose of presentation beyond the confines of the project, for example in the jovoto newsletter or in its blog, to distribute them and to edit them, in particular to create and present summaries or individual pictures of videos and texts, scaled-down versions of photographs ('thumbnails') etc.

3.5    Furthermore, the creative grants to jovoto the non-exclusive right, without restriction on content, time or space, to use the ideas and associated works in any medium for the purpose of communicating and promoting the project and/or ideas submitted to the project. To this end, jovoto may reproduce the ideas and associated works, distribute, edit, rearrange them, make them publicly accessible, broadcast and publicly play them in other ways, whereby this includes in particular making them available or broadcasting them by transmitting the content to fixed or mobile terminal devices of other creatives as part of automated subscription services (push services) or download services (pull services) (e.g. by podcast, RSS feed, Atom feed, XML interface or other technologies). The parties to this agreement consider the right of public reproduction also to include, in particular, the right to render the idea and associated works on the website using methods to play back audio and video data that can be received and simultaneously played by creatives (streaming), including the possibility of configuring the stream in such a way that the broadcast data can be stored by the recipient. In order to document the project and/or to promote the platform, jovoto may in particular include the creative's idea, alone or together with the ideas of other creatives, in a catalog of ideas, which will be made available to the client on conclusion of a project, and which it may reproduce as a different form of print publication and distribute (including as poster), where this serves as an appropriate form of publication for the platform, present at trade fairs (in particular in the form of banners, posters, video clips), make accessible as "best cases" on the platform, also in conjunction with other projects, or make generally publicly available, include in press releases or make available to third parties in the course of normal public relations work (for example for external press reports in journals).

3.6    In order to secure the greatest possible level of awareness and reach for the creative's ideas, the creative additionally grants to jovoto the right to publish the creative's ideas, and/or to have them published, on websites of external providers, to make the reproductions required for this and to transfer the individual works (i.e. the corresponding files) to the relevant third party, and/or to grant these providers technical access to the ideas for the above-mentioned purposes, including the right to reproduce the ideas for inclusion in their own websites. In order to achieve the aims mentioned in this sub-section, jovoto may use popular, established technical methods (e.g. embedded functions). The creative therefore consents to the relevant third-party provider adopting the works in question and also publishing them.

3.7    The creative will receive no monetary recompense for granting the aforementioned rights of use to jovoto. In return for being granted the rights, jovoto will present the creative's ideas on the platform and will give him the opportunity to sell his ideas to third parties or to jovoto and to participate with his ideas in projects.

3.8    In technical terms, the platform is a highly complex system with a large number of links. The content of creatives builds on from different user content and is cross-linked with it in many ways, etc. In addition, as a platform for creative services, the platform must provide a high degree of transparency and traceability – also covering the possibility of investigating or searching through events set in the past. The granting of rights of use in accordance with section 3 is therefore irrevocable and extends beyond any end to the user agreement. Content submitted by the creative to the platform can therefore remain accessible on the platform even after this license agreement terminates or the creative is no longer a user of the platform for other reasons.

3.9    jovoto also endeavors wherever possible to allow the creative every freedom to exploit his ideas vis-à-vis third parties. Within the scope of projects the creative may, where applicable, have the opportunity to subject his idea to open content licensing terms (such as Creative Commons licensing). Whether and to what extent this is to apply in an individual project (including the relevant details) will be specified in the briefing. The creative must in all cases explicitly indicate the use of third-party materials, including those that are subject to open licensing.

4.    Granting Rights of Use to the Client


By submitting an idea to the project, the creative grants the rights of use listed in section 4 to the client. The granting of rights of use in accordance with section 4.2 ff. is subject to the condition precedent that the client decides to acquire the creative's idea.

4.1    By participating in a project, the creative grants to the client the non-exclusive right of use, without restriction on content, time or space, to present his ideas and works as such outside of advertising campaigns or in order to promote the project, alone or together with the ideas and works of other creatives participating in the project, in any medium. Moreover, the creative grants to the client the right to use the ideas and works for the purpose of internal and external market research and for preparing the acquisition of the exclusive rights of use to the ideas and works. This may require the distributing and making the ideas and works publicly accessible, limited to the aforementioned purposes.

4.2    By accepting this license agreement, the creative grants to jovoto, subject to the condition precedent of the client's decision to acquire the corresponding rights from jovoto, rights of use to the idea that the creative has submitted to the project, together with all works, performances and activities contained in the idea, and to elements protected by copyright, design and performance protection rights associated with the idea (hereinafter referred to collectively as "works"), for exploitation in all known and unknown manners of utilization, in particular to the extent detailed below. This includes in particular – also in cases where rights arise at a later date – the exclusive, transferable right, unrestricted by content, time and space, and capable of being sub-licensed in parts, to reproduce the idea, and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea, irrespective of whether for payment or not, to distribute them, exhibit, rent out, to publicly render, in particular present, perform, display, make publicly accessible, broadcast, relay via cable or other systems (cable rebroadcasting), reproduce through video or audio medium, to make public via screen, loudspeaker or any other technical device, programs already broadcast or recordings made on the basis of public transmissions or to reproduce in any other intangible form, to edit and rearrange as well as to publish and use any such edited or rearranged form.

4.3    The aforementioned rights of exploitation for commercial or promotional purposes include in particular:

4.3.1    The right to reproduce the idea, and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea, in any tangible and/or intangible, digital or analog, form, e.g. through reprography or transfer to analog media (e.g. packaging, promotional material, advertisements, placards, books, stickers, printouts, pictures, illustrated books, books, comics, leaflets, flyers, photographs, photocopies, photo-mechanical processes, posters, magazines, newspapers), through digitalization or any other form of digital storage and to temporarily and/or permanently store on any other known type of data, video and/or video/audio media such as diskette, DVD, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, HD DVD, Blu-ray Disc, CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, CD-Audio, Super Audio CD, audio cassette, vinyl record, MMC, SD, MS, MS Pro, Flash Card, Smart Card, Secure Digital Card, memory stick, MiniDisc, DAT, hard disk, server, proxy server, USB stick and/or via transmission in the Internet or other data networks or through transmissions or in database systems; in particular this also includes the right to use the idea and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea for company-internal and -external presentations, in company-internal media such as intranet, PowerPoint presentations and for the creation and distribution of advertisements in print media and in electronic, especially online, means of advertising;

4.3.2    The right to distribute or put into circulation the idea and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea in any known way and on all physical analog and digital media independently or in combination with other works, especially in support of a product, and/or to offer these to third parties, in particular to rent and lend out irrespective of the distribution channel and the embodiment, in particular through distribution of the idea and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea on the aforementioned digital or analog media via wholesalers, resellers or retailers, mail order and irrespective of whether by remote sale, electronic transaction, free transfer or free distribution;

4.3.3    The right to transfer the idea, and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea, in any known technical manner and to make them known, and in particular accessible to the public. This includes, in particular, the fact that the idea and the associated works may be stored in digital form in a data processing system from which they may then be retrieved by third parties 'on demand' as a stream or download or any other form as digital signal via wired or wireless media and/or transmitted there with the consequence that the stored data are transferred to the receiving device of the third party where they may be decoded after storage, intermediate storage or immediately, i.e. converted into text, images and/or sounds and made visible or audible. The idea and the associated works may also be made available to the third party in such a manner that he/she may store the idea and the works contained therein and/or parts thereof in his/her receiving device and may access them there repeatedly.

4.6    The above provisions also apply in the event that the idea, and all works, performances and activities contained in the idea, have been combined with third-party protected material. If a collective creative work with shared copyright ownership has resulted from the combination of the works with other protected material, the creative herewith agrees to the exploitation of the collective work to the extent specified by the above provisions.

The sole exception to this are those parts of the idea that have been identifiably used for illustrative purposes and are marked as such components used solely for illustrative purposes and are explicitly titled as "SAMPLE" or "SPECIMEN" in the idea. Third-party materials and third-party works that are not marked as such will be treated as if they were the creative’s own works.
