At the end of the Tournament, your Ticket will automatically lapse.

Unless you have executed a written agreement with MonRoi Inc. to the contrary, any transmission to a third party, public representation or communication to the public by or for telecommunication, by any means, and any storage by any means of part or all of any of the chess matches broadcast via the WDC, are expressly prohibited. Without limiting the foregoing, resale of part or all of any of the chess matches broadcast via the WDC is strictly prohibited. The arrangement in a database of part or all of any of the chess matches broadcast via the WDC is also expressly prohibited.
You hereby agree not to make any abusive use or use contrary to normal use of the Ticket. To this end, should MonRoi determine that you are in breach of the License terms, MonRoi Inc. may, immediately upon written notice sent by electronic mail, regular mail, registered mail or by telecopier, interrupt your access to the Tournament and terminate your Ticket without refund of the purchase price. For the purposes of Section 5 below, such termination shall be deemed a termination with cause.
