IMG's Submission and Approvals process for the Rugby World Cup 2019 Commercial Programme ensures that materials created by Rugby World Cup Limited licensees ("the RWCL Licensees") are accurate in terms of the use of trade marks and the copy included, appropriate to Rugby World Cup brand values and in compliance with contractual rights afforded to RWCL Licensees by Rugby World Cup Limited.
All applications of Rugby World Cup 2019 intellectual property must be submitted for prior review and written approval in accordance with the Approvals process. In addition to the obvious print, visual and audiovisual applications, items such as press releases, radio scripts, trade show exhibits, internet and online materials, internal publications and annual reports must be submitted for approval.
However, please note that the approval of any application of Rugby World Cup Limited intellectual property does not imply or represent that such intellectual property are, or include, trademarks registered in the name of Rugby World Cup Limited in any particular territory and/or in any particular class of goods and/or services. All users of Rugby World Cup Limited intellectual property (including logos, marks and graphics) accept that they cannot rely on the existence of any such trade mark registrations.
The trademarks and/or logos of World Rugby (formerly the "International Rugby Board") and Rugby World Cup Limited appearing on the Approvals Site and are internationally registered trademarks and as such are protected by trademark law. Any reproduction thereof, without the authorization of World Rugby and Rugby World Cup Limited respectively, constitutes an infringement of such trademarks and may result in legal action.
Rugby World Cup Limited does not own the rights to third party intellectual property (including, without limitation, any player's images) and prior written consent from such third party is required for such use (even if access to the still imagery and/or footage which includes the player(s) has been provided by Rugby World Cup Limited). It is the responsibility of the RWCL Licensees to ensure that such consent is properly obtained for the use in question.
Neither IMG nor Rugby World Cup Limited is able to (and does not) grant the right to use any third party intellectual property (whether photographic or graphic) and/or the right to use the image of any player or group of players (whether or not the same is used in a manner which is capable of being construed as implying any endorsement by such players and/or creating any association between such players and any Rugby World Cup Partner, Sponsor or other Licensee).
Furthermore, Rugby World Cup Limited is not able to (and does not) grant the right to use the logo or any other intellectual property of any Participating Union (or Team) involved in Rugby World Cup 2019 (and/or any previous Rugby World Cup tournament).
Any approval by Rugby World Cup Limited (given by IMG, on Rugby World Cup Limited's behalf) for any material shall not extend to (or in any way relate to) such third-party intellectual property or use of player images and the submitting RWCL Licensee shall be solely responsible for the use of any such thirdparty intellectual property and/or player images.
In all cases where RWCL Licensees use third-party intellectual property and/or player images, written releases indicating that the correct and proper authorization/consent for use should be sought by the RWCL Licensee and may be required as part of the Approvals process. If you are unsure as to the use of third-party intellectual property and/or player images, please contact IMG in order to discuss how such consent can be sought.
RWCL Licensees must not permit or allow any third parties to create, suggest or attempt to create any association with Rugby World Cup through the materials and promotional campaigns of RWCL Licensees.
