A "news publication agency" is defined as an organization whose primary function is summarizing and analyzing news and which publishes, on a regular periodic basis, media containing news articles of opinion, features, and advertising. All rights not expressly granted to you are reserved to NI. Your right to use the Copyrightable Works is limited to Use in trade journals, newspapers, magazines, news publishing websites, and other publications maintained by news publication agencies.

Use Limitation. If you are an entity other than a news publication agency, you agree to notify NI in writing of:
You agree not to use the Copyrightable Works without NI's prior written approval, which may be given or withheld by NI in its sole discretion on a case by case basis. NI may, in its sole discretion on a case by case basis, impose further limitations or restrictions on your use of such Copyrightable Works or require you to pay fees, costs, and/or royalties (collectively, "Fees") in connection with delivery or use of such Copyrightable Works.
For example, if you intend to alter one of the Copyrightable Works (creating a derivative work therefrom), NI may require that you submit your derivative work for NI's final approval before publishing such derivative work. NI may also request that you supply NI with a copy of your work for its review prior to supplying you with the requested Copyrightable Works. Finally, NI may limit the geographic scope of your use (i.e., to the United States).
Notwithstanding the rights that may be granted to you by NI, as described above, in no event may you use the Copyrighted Works in any manner that (in NI's opinion) defames, tarnishes, or otherwise injures the reputation of NI. NI reserves the right to impose further limitations or restrictions that NI feels are necessary on a case by case basis and you hereby agree to abide by such limitations or restrictions before using such Copyrightable Works.
