APPLICATION FOR MEMBERSHIP - EDWARD DE BONO CREATIVE TEAM (TM)
I, the undersigned, wish to apply to become a member of the 'Edward de Bono Creative Team (TM)' herein after referred to as the 'Team'.
1. I understand and accept that nothing is promised by the Team. I understand and accept that my subscription entitles me to membership of the Team but not to any specific services. I understand and accept that it is the intention of the Team to set up an organising framework in which various possible activities and services will become effected. Whether these possibilities become activities will depend on the response of members and practical consideration.
2. I understand and accept that for practical reasons it will not be possible for Edward de Bono to respond to communications personally or for anyone else to do so. I understand and accept that it will not be possible to return documents submitted. No such documents should be submitted unless invited.
3. I understand and accept that decisions made by the Team are final.
4. I understand and accept that the Team can undertake no responsibility whatsoever in the protection of ideas. I understand and accept that it is up to the member submitting an idea to arrange whatever protection is required for that idea before submitting the idea. I understand and accept that the protection of an idea is the sole responsibility of the member who submits the idea.
5. I understand and accept that different people may come up simultaneously with parallel or similar ideas on a subject. I understand and accept that an idea submitted as novel may already have been considered before. I understand and accept that an idea submitted in general form may be submitted by another member in a more specific form. I understand and accept that origination of a general idea does not imply a claim to more specific forms that might be described as falling under the general idea. I understand and accept that in any dispute in which the Team is asked to adjudicate that adjudication is final.
6. I understand and accept that members of the Team are not entitled to use that membership in professional advertising or as an indication of creative ability unless specifically granted permission in writing to do so. Such permission will be given only after evidence of creative ability has been ascertained. I accept that no project may be designated as a project of the Team unless such designation has been authorised in writing.
7. I understand and accept that the Team may verify a person's membership of the Team if asked to do so.
8. I accept to pay subscription fees to the Team as and when they become due at the rates advised.
9. I understand and accept that members may not divulge information that is the property of the Team to non-members without written permission to do so.
10. I have read and accept the suggested activities and services of the Team. I accept that these are subject to change and modification.
11. I undertake to work constructively and positively to develop the potential of the Team. I undertake to resign from membership of the Team when my contribution becomes negative.
12. I accept that in all legal disputes the laws of the Island of Jersey (Channel Islands) shall apply.
