What rights does crowdSPRING receive to the works that are submitted to projects?

crowdSPRING is given limited rights to the work - similar to the rights people give to YouTube, Facebook and other services so that the work can be published on the site.

When users submit work to crowdSPRING, they give us a "non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free sub-licensable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display and perform the content in connection with the Site, in any media known now or in the future. Without such rights, we would not be able to host projects or maintain the marketplace." The creator of the original work does, of course, retain copyroght to that work, unless the entry is chosen as the winning entry and sold to a buyer.
