Artisfy LLC reserves ownership of all intellectual property rights inherent in or relating to the Software and corresponding source code, which include all copyright, patent rights, all rights in relation to registered and unregistered trademarks (including service marks), confidential information (including trade secrets and know-how) and all rights other than those expressly granted by this Agreement.
