Revision History - Unsolicited Idea Submission Policy
Version Comments
Many changes and clarifications added.
This is the initial version that ParanoidPaul captured. It is not necessarily the first version of the document.

	Apple and its employees and contractors do not accept, review or consider any unsolicited ideas, works, materials, proposals, suggestions, artwork, content or the like, including for advertising campaigns, promotions, products, services, technologies, product enhancements, processes, marketing strategies, product names, content or creative materials (all of the foregoing “submissions”). Please do not send or provide any submissions in any form to Apple or any of its employees or contractors. 

	The purpose of this policy is to avoid potential misunderstandings or disputes when Apple’s products, services, technologies, advertising, promotions, marketing strategies or content might seem similar to submissions provided to Apple. If, despite our request that you not send us your submissions, you still submit them, then regardless of what your correspondence says, the following terms will apply to your submissions. 


	You agree that: (1) your submissions and their contents along with related intellectual property rights will automatically become the property of Apple, without any compensation to you; (2) Apple may use or redistribute the submissions and their contents for any purpose and in any way on an unrestricted basis; (3) there is no obligation for Apple to review the submissions; and (4) there is no obligation to keep any submissions confidential. 


	Apple does, however, welcome your feedback regarding many areas of Apple’s existing business. If you want to send us feedback, we request that you use the forms located at, where you can choose from the many listed areas for your feedback. Please provide only specific feedback on Apple’s existing products, services and marketing strategies using those forms; and do not send or provide any submissions other than using those forms. 


	Any feedback you provide at this site will be deemed to be non-confidential and not proprietary. Apple will be free to use and redistribute such information on an unrestricted basis, without any compensation to you.
