6.1 The Service may, but is not obligated to, offer interactive features that allow Authorized Users to, among other things, submit or post Content (“User Generated Content”) or links to third party Content on areas of the Service accessible and viewable by other users of the Service and the public. If you are a Authorized User, you represent and agree that any use by you of such features, including any User Generated Content or links submitted or posted by you, shall be your sole responsibility, shall not infringe or violate the rights of any other party or violate any laws, contribute to or encourage infringing or otherwise unlawful conduct, or otherwise be obscene, objectionable or in poor taste, and that you have obtained all necessary rights, licenses or clearances.

6.3 The license you grant to The Hooch Life is non-exclusive (meaning you are free to license your User Generated Content to anyone else in addition to The Hooch Life), fully-paid and royalty-free (meaning that The Hooch Life is not required to pay you or anyone else deriving rights from you for the use on the Service of the User Generated Content that you post), sublicensable (so that The Hooch Life is able to use its affiliates, subcontractors and other partners such as Internet content delivery networks and wireless carriers to provide the Services), perpetual (meaning that no termination of this Agreement will affect the license granted by you), and worldwide (because the Internet and the Services are global in reach).

6.4 The Hooch Life reserves the right not to post or publish any User Generated Content, and to delete, remove or edit any User Generated Content, at any time in its sole discretion without notice or liability.

6.5 The Hooch Life has the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any information and User Generated Content submitted or posted by you or otherwise available on the Service, to investigate any reported or apparent violation of this Agreement, and to take any action that The Hooch Life in its sole discretion deems appropriate.
