Property Rights

The goal of the Massage World Cup Community (MWCC) is to promote massage as a business, massage therapists as health professionals and to build a strong community for inspiration and lifelong learning.

We’ll make celebrities of our winners, and put them on top of the global wellness map. Through our extensive contact net we can also provide exciting international work opportunities.

Therefore, the following rules are very important:

  1. By uploading competition videos, the participant automatically grants full distribution rights to MWCC without reservations. The videos may be used by MWCC in any form via any channel at any time. They may also be shared with third parties according to MWCC’s wishes.
  2. MWCC may monetize on the videos. Any profit will be shared with the participant according to a separate contract. The participant will have the opportunity to grant MWCC exclusive distribution rights, in which case the participant’s share of the profit will increase.

 

Membership

The Massage World Cup Community (MWCC) is a registered non-profit organization.

The competitions we organize must therefore be member activities, and all participants must be registered members of MWCC.

When you Register for the competition, a membership fee of EUR 25,- is added to the participation fee, granting you a membership valid for one competition season.
