In consideration of PDA taking action to review and/or edit your Contribution and consider it for publication independently or as part of a collective work, you automatically transfer and assign to PDA upon submission to PDA, all right, title, and interest in copyright, and all of the rights and all remedies afforded by law, throughout the world in and to your Contribution and any revisions thereof prepared and submitted by you, including without limitation the right to register the copyright in your Contribution in the name of PDA and the exclusive right to reproduce, publish, republish, prepare all foreign language translations and other derivative works, distribute, sell, license, transfer, transmit, and publicly display copies of, and otherwise use the Contribution, in whole or in part, alone or in compilations, in all formats and media and by any method, device or process, and through any channels, now known or later conceived or developed; and the exclusive right to license or otherwise authorize others to do all of the foregoing, and the right to assign and transfer the rights granted hereunder.  To the extent that any right now or in the future existing under copyright is not specifically granted to PDA by the terms of this Agreement, such right shall be deemed to have been granted hereunder.
