Your Sport is Yours: Intellectual Property of New Sports Submissions

I have created this New Sport section of Topend Sports to show some of the new sports from around the world, and for people to freely promote their newly created sports. Some of those submitting their new sports are worried that they will lose control over their idea, that I will (or a visitor) to this site will steal their idea, and profit from it. Quite the opposite, by publishing your idea quickly on this public space, you have created some proof of being the inventor and made a claim to the idea. See more about registering your site and holding copyright.

We make sure that the submitter and inventor of the sport is clearly credited, with the date done so. We do not retain any legal claim to the sport once it is posted.

It would be wise for you to first check if your sport has already been created by someone else. See our list of new sports, list of unusual sports, list of all sports of the world, and otherwise searched this site. With the huge possible variations and combinations of details this is highly unlikely happen. More likely is that someone has already suggested or is using the same name that you propose. If you submit a sport that I know is very similar to one I have already published, or the name is the same as another, I will let you know.

There is no payment to have your sport listed. If you have a new sport there is nothing to lose, and lots to gain. In the long term you should create your own website for the sport, and not rely on just this section of Topend Sports to promote your sport. However, this is a good starting point. See more in the guide to submitting a new sport.
